I think this sums it up:
Especially this quote:
"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.""
Personally, I don't see anything remotely sexual about breast-feeding. It's a completely natural human process. It's only a sexual thing if you decide to make it a sexual thing (which, by the way, applies to quite a bit, including the Janet Jackson thing).
Ooo, here's another funny one:
""I'm totally supportive of it — I just don't like the flashing," she says. "I don't want my son or husband to accidentally see a breast they didn't want to see.""
That one cracked me up. Whoops, there's a breast! Whoops, there's another one! Don't know how old her son is, but I'd wager her husband is a big boy, and can probably deal with seeing a stray breast. Maybe she's insecure about her husband seeing another woman's breast and automatically lusting after that woman. I dunno...
I was in Holland last week, and was watching some TV
in my hotel room. I happened to see some nudity. I was not ashamed, embarrassed, angry, shocked, or surprised. In fact, I wasn't even interested in whatever show it was. So I changed the channel. Big deal.
"We Americans are all about sex, as long as it's just out of reach- a concept, not an immediate reality. Then we get shy. It's the upbringing."
That was well said.

I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".
