On the cover of this week’s  Time magazine, we see a mother breastfeeding her son of nearly four years. In my book, that’s too old for a child to breastfeed.

What I’m really worried about, though, isn’t the child’s age. It’s the baring of a breast on the cover of a mainstream magazine. This is just lurid. How could an image of a breastfeeding mother ever be allowed in public?

Oh, wait . . .

. . . so much for shock.
