I might get shit for it, but I don't care lol.



No. No. No. That just seems really creepy and unnatural to me. Call it a double standard if you must, but gross.

The lady in the tub naked talking science was the weirdest part. Like, get some clothes on because you're distracting me with your wet n**e self.



The guy breastfeeding.. I'm not sure how I feel about that

I kept laughing cause she was soaking her milk bags in milk. What was that about?

I think it's messing with nature a bit too much. I'm sure lactation from a man would not be the same as lactation from a woman and it wouldn't have nearly the same health benefits for the baby as mother's milk does.

Um no! We have the same lactaion organs therefore the milk is probably the same (I say probably because I'd have to research first but I'm like 98% sure). There are many species that both mother and father breast feed the babies. So nature actually proves your "theory" of it "messing with nature", wrong!



The organs are there for a reason.

From what I understand each pregnancy's breastmilk is tailored to each individual baby, so it wouldn't really be the same nutritionally. Men don't have nipples for a reason lol. They're there because every fetus starts out female before it develops its sex organs.

I like to think of myself as open-minded, but even I have my limits. Men weren't made to breastfeed for a reason.

Wouldn't it be the same as getting donor milk?



There was a father in Sri Lanka whose wife died and his daughter wouldn't take formula. He ended up nursing her.

Yes it would be the same. This is what I'm saying. Men are capable of doing it so obviously they are "meant to" in a way. I don't think it's too far fetched. Breast milk will almost always be better than formula. Even if its mans milk lol.
