'Time' Magazine Seems To Have Gone Insane
Filed under 'Entertainment' because I really don't know where else to file this.
Print media is dying, and while this 'Time' magazine cover isn't probably going to do much to change that in the long run, I think this cover is bound to get people talking about 'Time' for at least another few days.
In case you're afflicted with a weird inability to read words and not see and process pictures of disturbingly grown children suckling on breasts, the cover of this magazine features a (hot) parenting blogger, Jamie Lynn Grumet, "feeding" her 3 year-old son Aram.
While that's a weird thing to put on the cover a national news magazine in and of itself, what's even more bizarre are the creative touches the designers used. For instance, she appears to not realize that she has a tiny person attached to her breast. In contrast, the boy seems all too aware that he's bresatfeeding, and that he's being watched by an entire nation of people.
Also, he's on a stool? Is that something people do? I don't know much about when you should stop breastfeeding, but my gut tells me it's right around the time your toddler can use a stool to bring himself to boob-level, and is capable of feeling shame for breastfeeding. Or at least breastfeeding in front of a camera crew.
I also know that "nipple confusion" is a thing, but I'm not sure what it is. HOWEVER, if I had to take a stab at it, I would say that the look on this poor boy's face conveys "nipple confusion" to a tee.
That's all I have to say about this picture...
Wait. I have one more thing to say:
Can someone please Photoshop Peter Dinklage in for the boy?
