So Maggie Gyllenhaal shows a little skin as breastfeeds her baby on the Christopher Street Piers over the weekend? Big freakin' whoop. She's still wearing 99% more clothing than 99% of the people who hung out on that pier over the last 30 years.
I'm not going to enter into any debates with knuckleheads who think women should pump, head to the can, or drape themselves in some kind of tarp before feeding their child. It's 2007, people, and it's New York City.
What I AM interested in, though, is propagating the best BF coinage since "lactivist." You know what, it's better than "lactivist": Nursing In Public, NIP.
Is this a new term? Is it possible I have not been keeping abreast of these developments? Has NIP been staring me in the face, trying to get my attention? NIP needs our firm, gentle, uplifting support. I feel like a deer trapped in the headl-- OK, point made. I'll stop now.
