Child Abuse

You would hope parents have children for the right reasons and would do everything in their power to make sure their children's welfare was most important on their minds. However, there is at least one narcissistic mother who thinks making some kind of political or social point is more important than being concerned about exploiting her kid in order for a magazine to sell copies or get hits on their website.

I am, of course, referring to "the" cover of the latest issue of Time. It is absolutely disgusting and borders on kiddie porn, frankly. You want to be an overprotective mother and breastfeed toddlers, fine. Just don't do it in public and don't shove it in my face.

Not to mention there is an anti-feminist message being peddled. Women aren't good enough no matter what they do. The "standards" for being a "perfect" woman become more and more unrealistic.

This guilt-tripping of women hasn't changed one iota for fifty years or more.
