Life continues on around here. Some days are more interesting than others. I'm almost never caught without my phone, that's where I store my brain, but earlier this week one of the medical offices had a cancellation and called to see if we might like to come in earlier. I was tempted to reply "not really" but like to help if we can. It would give them some time to fill our vacated time later in the week.
We dress first thing in the morning so we're ready to ride at a moment's notice. The appointment was for an echocardiogram so my services weren't needed. In the waiting room I reached into my purse and a sick feeling came over me, no phone. Panic, how would I occupy myself?
Desperate, I turned to a TIME magazine on the table beside me. I began thumbing through the magazine and suddenly boredom was no longer an issue.
I consider myself to be progressive and open to LGBT rights but this brought me to a sudden stop. It was referred to as 'chest feeding.'
1) Why would TIME post such a picture?
2) I found it jarring.
3) How do you explain it to a child?
Is my age showing that I find publishing such a picture disturbing? I don't think it's helpful to the transgender discussion
