This morning while watching the news (which on occasion I do to make sure there are no minors stuck in coal mines or Ben & Jerrys hasn’t put out a new flavor) and what do my wondering ears should I hear?
A story about Giselle Bündchen, you know- that leggy supermodel that makes 20 million a year and married to hunky Tom Brady and has probably never had a zit in her life, talking to Harpers Bazaar about breastfeeding.
Nothing annoys me more than celebrities and rich people preaching to others about what we should or shouldn’t do. Sometimes I think rich people need to just shut up and have no opinions. Be grateful they are…well…rich.
“Some people (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think, ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’
Then she continues:
“I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breast-feed their babies for six months.”
At first I am slightly put off that she is referring directly to the US in her first quote. Are we last in breastfeeding or something? I don’t know much about it to make an educated comment, but calling out an entire country is just kinda rude.
Shortly after those quotes hit the fan, an additional statement released that was total backpedal city.
Something about her not judging moms. Umm…that train has left the station.
What do you think? Do you think that Breastfeeding should be a LAW?
