In case anyone was wondering -- mom working outside the home does not preclude extended breastfeeding, or as I like to say, normal breastfeeding.

I really, really liked this response. Dana Goldstein's original article was so full of ignorance that I couldn't believe that people were taking it so seriously.


There is a stark contrast between Goldstein's "progressivism" and the values of every parent I know. In Goldstein's world, parents sacrifice the good of their children to achieve some "good" defined by the government. Parents I know make choices for the good of their children, and have the greater societal benefits as a secondary goal. Even the most liberal parent I know selected the "best" Minneapolis public school for his kids, not the neighborhood school.

Very glad to read this. I'd seen the original piece but not the response.
