Oh, the Misogyny!
Continuing in our series of posts sure to be labeled uniformed, right-wing and misogynistic, I offer the following from today’s Washington Post in relation to the university professor who saw fit to breast feed a sick child in front of her class on the first day of school.
The American University professor who breast-fed her baby while teaching a class was inappropriate, judgmental and flat-out absurd.
. . .
I’m guessing that nursing lawyers don’t breast-feed while taking depositions and that nursing doctors don’t have infants latched on while seeing patients. That wouldn’t be professional.
I wish Pine had turned over the lectern to her teaching assistant or maybe given the students a short reading assignment while she stepped aside to nurse her daughter to sleep. It would’ve illustrated the superwoman nature of what she was pulling off — work/life balance, the beauty of a woman’s capabilities, her trust in the teaching assistant.
Misogynistic, you say? Blind to the challenges of working mothers? Intolerant of “strong” women?
Hmm. Maybe you should take it up with the author. See what she has to say.
