Surprised? Feminists Who Hate Babies Declare Breast-Feeding Is Not ‘Natural’

Posted on | May 1, 2017 | 2 Comments

“I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding . . . time-sucking monsters with their constant neediness. . . . Nothing will make me want a baby. . . . This is why, if my birth control fails, I am totally having an abortion.”
Amanda Marcotte, March 2014

Feminists condemn motherhood as oppression, imposed on women through male violence enforcing heteropatriarchy. All feminists hate babies, and support abortion to kill as many babies as possible, because the road to feminism’s idea of “equality” is paved with dead babies.

Once you understand that feminism is a death cult — like Heaven’s Gate or Jonestown — you cease to be surprised by the insane arguments made by the deranged adherents of this lunatic movement. Insofar as insanity is not a cause of feminism, it’s always a predictable result:

It’s “ethically inappropriate” for government and medical organizations to describe breastfeeding as “natural” because the term enforces rigid notions about gender roles, claims a new study in Pediatrics.
“Coupling nature with motherhood… can inadvertently support biologically deterministic arguments about the roles of men and women in the family (for example, that women should be the primary caretaker,” the study says.
The study notes that in recent years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, and several state departments of health have all promoted breastfeeding over bottle-feeding, using the term “natural.”
“Referencing the ‘natural’ in breastfeeding promotion… may inadvertently endorse a set of values about family life and gender roles, which would be ethically inappropriate,” the study says.
Unless such public-service announcements “make transparent the ‘values and beliefs that underlie them,’” they should quit describing breastfeeding as “natural.”
But the study’s authors, Jessica Martucci and Anne Barnhill, clearly have in mind an alternative set of “values and beliefs,” about which which they are not transparent.
It’s unclear whether they’re worried about how traditional female gender roles may limit women’s progress in the workforce, or whether this is part of the discussion about whether conventional views about motherhood exclude transgender people. Or perhaps this is just another example of how the progressive obsession with gender and sexuality has permeated all fields of academic study.

By the way, neither Martucci nor Barnhill have medical degrees. Barnhill is a Princeton alumna with a Ph.D. in philosophy from NYU, while Martucci is an Oberlin alumna who got her Ph.D. in “History and Sociology of Science” from Penn in 2011. Like all feminists, Barnhill and Martucci hate Jesus, America, capitalism and heterosexuality — not necessarily in that order — but more than anything else, they hate babies. They are death-cult fanatics who want you to kill your babies. Once your baby is dead, “biologically deterministic arguments” about breast-feeding and “gender roles” don’t matter, because dead babies don’t have to be fed. This is the conclusion toward which feminist theory logically leads.
