New mom Gisele Bundchen–who famously gave birth to 8-month-old son Benjamin at home in a bathtub –tells the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK that she thinks breastfeeding should be mandatory for the first six months of the child’s life.
Yes, everyone should take health care advice from a supermodel.
I could go the easy route and tell her to just STFU but you know, she is not really at fault here. The ones at fault are those who actually publish this rubbish without an ounce of critical thinking thrown in for good measure. And to make matters even more aggravating, there is a poll asking people if they agree with her statement. Do they think that a bunch of fools saying “YES, WE AGREE” would either lend more credibility to this idiocy or legitimate the fool’s opinions?
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
