DT reader Mimi has a communal living situation next door to her that involves a mime. So she was perhaps better prepared to see this recent Craigslist posting than I was:
We are offering a free room for a woman who is willing to provide breast milk for consumption to the household. We are an otherwise vegan house but have recently read A.O. Wilson's study of the benefits of human breast milk to all human beings of any age. This is not sexual. Neither appearance nor sexual preference are of any concern to us.I swear, I tried to find an image of the breastfeeding Brazilian mimes from the 1996 WABA Global Forum, but I failed. Also, who is A.O. Wilson? Do they mean E.O. Wilson? What is his study about breast milk?
We are willing to accept one child into the house as well. We do not want to take breast milk away from a nursing child however. We also don't need gallons of breast milk but whatever you can muster; it is a nutritional supplement for members of the house who want to partake.
The room is 10'x 15' in a sunny house in Berkeley. There are 7 other people in the house and we live largely communally - shared food and house supplies. You must still pay for food, only rent is free. Reply to this posting and we will set up a time. Contact Dana.
