Academic researchers back in 2016 insisted that people ought to avoid using the term “breastfeeding,” as it is “ethically problematic” — because it promotes and enforces “gender roles,” according to a recently resurfaced study.
In February, U.K. hospitals came under fire for using the term “chestfeeding” instead of “breastfeeding” in order to be more inclusive for transgender people.
What are the details?
According to a report from Campus Reform, U.S. academics published a study in journal Pediatrics that called for people to avoid using the apparently controversial term.
Jessica Martucci of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and Anne Barnhill of Johns Hopkins University wrote, “We are concerned about breastfeeding promoting that praises breastfeeding as the ‘natural’ way to feed infants. Promoting breastfeeding as ‘natural’ may be ethically problematic, and, even more troublingly, it may bolster this belief that ‘natural’ approaches are presumptively healthier.”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
