Caustically blogging about politics and life.
I was listening to NPR yesterday, about this, and the whole discussion made me so angry. I know plenty of women who didn't breastfeed, and have a great relationship with their baby.
I am not sure if Giselle really said that quote about Starbucks. This same newspaper used the same exact quote regarding an actress in England:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/celebritynews/7889139/Denise-Van-Outen-breastfeeding-is-too-public.htmlI like Giselle. Really, really like her. Kudos to her for having a natural body. She seems like a great mom. I can only imagine having peers like she must have who are not interested in even going full term with their babies and not wanting to change the look of their breasts at all (unless it involves a plastic surgeon). I guess she is just like us--you get backlash whatever parenting opinion you put out there.
1) Celebrities have a right to opinions, too. 2) We have the right not to listen to them.and3) She doesn't know what she's talking about, which means she probably shouldn't have been talking to the media, but it's really not her fault that private opinions attached to her pretty face get blown out of proportion.She's pretty. We don't expect her to be a brain surgeon, too.
Umm, Mother, are you saying all brain surgeons are ugly? ; )
Celebrities are often infatuated by their own stardom and as a consequence suffer from severe vainglory.by-the-by: The Maven has known altogether too many "brain surgeons" in Her lifetime and She can attest to many of them being as bereft of common sense as our dear Giselle. Just sayin...
it never ceases to amaze me. we somehow convince ourselves that these people are more than pretty faces/bodies or fantastic athletes.they may be, but it isn't necessarily so.
