Time magazine puts a breastfeeding four year old on its cover


Time opts for scandalous with its current cover shot, managing to offend mothers by suggesting they're pathetic wimps if they stop nursing after their kids grow teeth* while also wrecking the life of a little boy. Well done, Time magazine!

*Significant because a kid with a full-set of teeth can acquire nutrients from regular food, and thus has no further "natural" need for breast milk. A woman who continues nursing past that point isn't a super mom. She's someone who puts her own needs, and likely her own insecurities,  ahead of the kid.**

And hey, not to open up another round of debate, but do any of you really want to see something like this, coming soon, to a shul near you?

** For good measure, chew or suck or whatever on this:
The Case Against Breast Feeding by Hanna Rosin 
In certain overachieving circles, breast-feeding is no longer a choice—it’s a no-exceptions requirement, the ultimate badge of responsible parenting. Yet the actual health benefits of breast-feeding are surprisingly thin, far thinner than most popular literature indicates. Is breast-feeding right for every family? Or is it this generation’s vacuum cleaner—an instrument of misery that mostly just keeps women down?

I think that what you composed was actually very logical. But, what about this?
suppose you were to write a awesome title? I ain't saying your information is not solid, but
suppose you added something that grabbed
a person's attention? I mean "Time magazine puts a breastfeeding four year old on its cover" is kinda boring.
You should glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article headlines to get viewers interested.
You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you've written. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
