I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend.

It was over too soon.

Laura, you had no way to contact you on your page, so I just thought I would leave a comment on your easter post. I read your comment about breastfeeding over on Ann Althouse's blog. I went thru the same thing with my daughter in 1993. In fact, the whole Hanna Rosin article triggered a blog post of my own on the subject, if you want to check it out. It is sixteen years later and only now can I talk about it without getting defensive and angry.

People seem to want everybody to think and feel as they do, and to think that there's something wrong if they don't. I read a comment somewhere about that sad little 13-yr-old girl who was driven to suicide by the woman masquerading as a boy on MySpace. The commenter, a man, said he didn't understand why she didn't just walk away from the computer if she was upset. I thought, yeah, and she doesn't understand why you don't have Lisa Frank stickers all over your pens and datebook. Same with men who don't understand why breastfeeding is an emotional subject for mothers. You don't have to understand. You just need to accept that it is (and thank God that your hormones aren't jerking you around like that).
