Good Lord! Look! It's a Breast!!
The cover of a popular wholesome parenting magazine "Baby Talk" seems to have a bunch of Americans up in arms, hootin' and hollerin' and throwing all kinds of fits. Many wrote in to voice their issues:

"I was SHOCKED to see a giant breast on the cover of a magazine."

One mother who didn't like the cover explains she was concerned about her 13-year-old son seeing it:

"I shredded it," said Gayle Ash, of Belton, Texas, in a telephone interview. "A breast is a breast _ it's a sexual thing. He didn't need to see that."

"I don't want my son or husband to accidentally see a breast they didn't want to see."

"Men are very visual," says Wheatley, 40, of Amarillo, Texas. "When they see a woman's breast, they see a breast _ regardless of what it's being used for."

Goodness Grief, I have seen more skin and breast exposure on TV during the Emmy Awards! After sneaking a second look at the photo, I'm half convinced it may not even be a breast. Could be a knee. Could be the back of Mommy's elbow and arm. Could be a new baby amusement park ride for all I care.

As for the visual men comment, I have yet to see a grown man steal candy from a baby. What do you think a guy is going to do? Rush right in, push the baby aside and stick his head between a strange woman's boobs, wiggle his head back and forth while shouting, "Bubba-lubba-bubba-lubba-boo!"

I sure find it strange that all the negative comments regarding the magazine cover are from women. I don't hear any men complaining at all. Any guys out there having issues over this cover? Comment and let your beef be known! -Mix

    Thanks for dropping by "The Pansi Files."
    As I said on another blog, I am really concerned about these women who think that they need to shred this cover to keep their men from thinking about sex.
    I think maybe duct tape--for the men's eyes--would be a more effective measure.

    I'm with you. My advice to those folks would be to relax, learn to live and let live a little. Every man, woman and child on the planet is aware that breasts exist. We all know their basic shape. Now exactly what extra, secret and damaging information is that magazine cover supposed to convey?

    I agree with you. This is a beautiful picture of a happy baby having a happy meal! It looks uplifting, filled with love and warmth. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a message about friendships. Yes, I hope that there are friendships for life out there. You have some amazing pictures here. Good luck to you and your family. BTW, I was in Savannah this spring. What an amazing city!

    "I don't want my son or husband to accidentally see a breast they didn't want to see."

    Ok, you find me one man who "doesn't want" to see a breast. Go on, I dare you to even try :)

    why can't these complainers find the time and gumption then to complain about the breast exposure that SHOULD be complained about, such as that on tv shows aired during prime time, you get the idea...

    A comment and a complaint:

    The comment: Could that be a belly that the baby is "kissing"?

    My complaint: That kid needs to get out of the way so I can see that boob better! Drink! Drink! Drink! GOOOOO baby!

    come to think of it...yeah it might not be a breast after all. i dont feel negative towards it. just a bit surprised.

    I'm surprised people in America made a big deal about this. In France, if you're looking for a magazine of any sorts you need to be extra careful to avoid looking at the covors of porn magazines- it's simply scandalous. I mean they're mixed up somewhere between Linux Magazine and Cooking magazines ugh...
    This is just an innocent baby eating. Nothing wrong about that!
