gopher321: Silverstone has been rather vocal about her unique parenting style since the birth of her son, Bear Blu*facepalm*
Pray 4 Mojo: If your diet is causing your inability to properly feed your baby... maybe there's another, simpler solution.
WhippingBoy: Aren't cows "someone else's mother"?
brap: Is this just for women with children.How do they feel about adult homemade mozzarella celebrity cheese fetishists? I'm asking for a friend.
Bathia_Mapes: Just for the record, vegans do not object to breastfeeding.
legion_of_doo: ajax6677: Not sure why she gets flack for the video about chewing up food for her baby. I've done that several times when we have gone out to eat. It's so much easier to just share food off your plate. We like to make sure he gets enough protien but he doesn't have enough teeth to chew the steak on his own yet.Was the video that weird, cuz it just seems like a normal mom-thing to me?So you chew the food in your mouth, and then bend over your child, and pass the food from your mouth to your child's mouth?
Smeggy Smurf: Bathia_Mapes: Just for the record, vegans do not object to breastfeeding.Blatent hipocracy.
fusillade762: I could be wrong, but I don't think selling breast milk is legal in all states.
a_room_with_a_moose: All I know is that my canines didn't evolve for eating lettuce./bloody meat FTW
legion_of_doo: You're the jerk... jerk: StaleCoffee: We're in NJ and exempt from vax laws not because we don't believe in vaccines but we wanted to wait until our kids were older and their immune systems had more time to develop. Call me a nutter, fine, but I have farked up a lot of things in my life, I want to be careful not to fark up my kids too badly. I know all the arguments in both directions but I think immunizing our kids from 7 to 12 is a reasonable frame of timeStupid or troll? It is obvious you did not investigate this issue by looking at pier reviewed journalsI'd guess that ship has already sailed, anyway.
Magorn: Well it helps if you are white...
TheShavingofOccam123: There was a huge uproar in Phoenix when some mother left her child in daycare and one of the workers, when the kid was being fussy and hard to handle, whipped out her breast and suckled the kid.
PsiChick: Nana's Vibrator: I sort of understand the concept and the spirit of vegans, but why work around the natural process of breast feeding if you don't HAVE to? Human bodies evolved over many tens of thousands of years to do something that amazing. What these vegans are doing is unnatural and potentially harmful. And really, if you're that much of a disciplined vegan trying to live a certain way, probably the most natural and vegan thing you can do is to just let that little meat-needing sucker die.Or you could RTFA and find out that vegans are a-ok with breastfeeding, since the mother is capable of consenting to give her milk to her child.
tuna fingers: Kuta:Any group which chooses to believe their behavior is RIGHT will NECESSARILY believe that the behavior of others is WRONG. But vegans are choosing to act against their biology. This causes lots of problems. Some people have the will to overcome, but that's not always a good thing as is evidenced here.It should be noted that consuming the milks of other beasts is against our biology too./I love cheese.
factoryconnection: "I care enough about my baby to breastfeed it and seek out extra milk when I can't produce, but not so much that I'll accept any from someone that might have eaten some cheese in the last decade."Is this to make sure that the kids don't get any veterinary antibiotics or hormones? Because the proteins and fats in breastmilk are generated from broken-down food nutrients in the mom's body... there isn't any "cow" left in the milk.I guess this makes it 100% clear that her kids are raised vegan as well. Hmmm...
likefunbutnot: One of my cousins is raising her three kids on a life-long vegan diet. The oldest is 12 and he's physically smaller than seven and eight year old kids from other relatives.
Luse: The donor milk is almost certainly not from a strict vegan. We've already established they can't produce enough even for their own young.Face it, you are a broken specimen due to your own decisions.
tuna fingers: Here's a factoid for you. The great U S of A ranks 34th in the world regarding infant mortality rate.Cuba does a better job with delivering babies. Very few countries dope up mom/baby like we do, and no other country has C-sections like we do.
Mrbogey: The My Little Pony Killer: Wow, I was thinking of switching my cat over to raw food for the nutrition, but something more along the lines of meats, not the ingredients for my salad.If you feed your cats raw meat, make sure you include taurine, vitamin E, and B vitamins supplements. Most muscle meat doesn't have enough of those in it to give them full nutrition.
LordBeavis: theorellior: gopher321: Silverstone has been rather vocal about her unique parenting style since the birth of her son, Bear BluI have an acquaintance who named her son "Bear". I don't quite get the logic, but whatevs. So far I've resisted the urge to say things like, "Feeling cranky and fussy? Better drink my own piss!"The name "Bear" is fine and dandy in the ghey community. Let's hope the kid doesn't turn out to be a twink, though, or it could get confusing.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Can you imagine how horrible it would be to have a conversation with this woman?
jshine: borg: It's vegan if it's your own being used to feed your child(ren).How so? Milk is obviously an animal product. This just happens to be milk from a species of large, hairless ape rather than from a cow.
nocturnal001: My bigger question is how many Vegans have cats or dogs? Do they feed them soyfood?

dragonchild: WhippingBoy: Aren't cows "someone else's mother"?Depends. Are we talking about your mom?
