Lactating Men and Prostitutes Need Not Apply

Did they have to kick out the daddies for leering?

Was there a mad rush of men enrolling in order to gawk at pregnant people boobies?

Were the lactating men filling the classes leaving not enough room for the would be nursing mothers whose unfortunate babies were then left starving?

Exactly how much of a lady does one have to be? Are high heels a requirement? What about pantyhose? Are people kicked out of class for sitting with their legs spread apart or making a joke about bodily functions? What about butch dykes? Did they really intend to be so exclusive?

Who do you suppose gets to decide WHICH females are ladylike enough to attend the class? Do you think there's an interview process? I imagine they have a finishing school for the would-be nursing moms who don't make the cut.

Governor Spitzer used to troll the Brooklyn Prenatal Clinics for gals.

Maybe the rule's there to discourage politicians from dropping by.

John C said...

I'm off to tighten my manbra straps. The nerve of some people. ;)

Carey said...

That is funny! I wonder how many men actually protested! LOL

Saradevil said...

Man if I have to pass an etiquette class to lactate I am so never having children. Unless they have like a belching round.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Thanks Emily & Dana!

Delmer - Yeah. You wouldn't want the little innocents exposed to politicians.

John C! Where 'ya been? Left you a bloglog message saying how confused I was that bloglines always tells me your site's updated but when I click it, it never is... Good luck with the manbra! I didn't know there was such a thing...wonder if it's as complicated as a regular bra.

Carey - It was really dangerous snapping the picture because of all the rioting and looting around the building. KIDDING!!!!!

Saradevil - I'm pretty sure belching does not fall under the category of ladylike behavior...on the other hand, you do get to belch the baby afterwards. Does that count?

Ugh. I was signed up for the breastfeeding class. After going through the childbirth class and seeing the demographics that were there, I decided I didn't want to see them again and cut the breastfeeding class.

Luckily Lucas and I figured it out all the same.

jp said...

Good grief!! :-) With a sign of that size, I'm now wondering just how many lactating women there are in your fair city...

Heather said...

This is a riot! I love signs like this. As for your wondering about stupid people... I think this happens due to people procreating that shouldn't. And then it shows up in the offspring of said people during about adolescence and never goes away. And as a former teacher, it's sad but true, I've met some of the short people whose destiny this is. I'm doomed to be plagued by stupid annoying people forever. They seem to just find me where ever I am.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Curlie Glamor Girlie - Glad you didn't have a problem with the breastfeeding! It really can be tough. I don't know if there WERE classes when I had my kids but considering how intensively I parented at the time, I'm sure I would have signed up if there were. Especially for my second - he was harder to nurse than my first!

JP - Probably quite a few! I think we're fourth or fifth largest city in the US so I imagine there's a lactating woman (lady?) or two around.

Heather - Sorry you're a stupid-people-magnet. That can't be much fun. :-0

ALF said...

If they did allow men, there would be more men than women!

Roger said...

They kick me out just because I was holding a bowl of dry cereal, there is no justice in this world!

Maureen said...

Hahahahaha!!!! Wow. Sometimes I gotta wonder at the people to put up these signs. Do they not read?

Maybe it's not a prerequisite for the job.

lotus07 said...

I believe that signs like these really put the zap on the young minds that read them.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Alf & Lotus07 - Maybe so! Who can really tell about these things?!?!?!?

Maureen - Apparently not! They should really run them by someone with a demented sense of humor before they light them up. They can use Roger. :-) ;-) :-) BTW, Good one ROGER!

I'm blogging over here now, Jill.

Ingrid said...

I'm starting a men-only breastfeeding support group. I bet I'll have a great turnout!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

John C - Thanks! See 'ya at your new place!!!!

Ingrid - Hope you get a great turnout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
