"Breastfeeding doll" creates outrage - seriously people...

I read about this story on one of our local news stations, NBC24 where people are outraged here in the US about a doll that is currently only sold in Spain that supposedly doesn't drink from a bottle but the doll comes with a "feeding vest" and the doll nurses from a flower on the vest.

First of all, almost any mother who has breastfed a child that had other young children has probably experienced the same thing I did when I breastfed my five children, your child has taken a baby doll and mimicked what you are doing...It's natural...It's not as if the "feeding vest" has fake boobs with a nipple attached to it...

Yet, considering the lack of support there is in this nation for breastfeeding mothers, I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that people would be outraged about a doll that isn't even for sale in this country...

Maybe though it's been a hotly debated topic locally which surprised me.

Because Americans are sexually repressed people who think that the young are not able to practice responsible sex so they make it taboo. We suck as a country sometimes.
