Earlier this week I was at EC where I ran into 3 students I know - K, B & A. A, the only girl of the three, said she wanted to take L because of how cute she is. I told her she couldn't do it because she can't feed L. The conversation then went a little like:
A - That's so gross.
Me - Are you serious? It's not gross; it's completely natural!
A - It makes me want to vomit just thinking about it!
Me - What?! No way! K, what do you think?
K - (who is pre-med) I'm not going to allow my wife to do it. She can pump, but she is not doing that. No way.
Me - You don't care about the health benefits? Dental, ADHD, ear infections, general illness...?
K - I know all these things - but no, I don't like it. It's not going to happen.
Me - B, what do you think of this?
B - (who is a freshmen I recruited and I think was filling a little awkward) To each his own.
Me - That's it?! Oh goodness!
Seriously, there is a 20 year old girl who wants to vomit at the thought of breastfeeding, and a pre-med student who is so uncomfortable with it that he vows he won't allow his wife to do it. This is troubling.
