Last week I read numerous blog posts skewering Bill Maher for criticizing women who breastfeed their babies in public. On his show Real Time with Bill Maher, he said the following:
Look, there’s no principle at work here other than being too lazy to either plan ahead or cover up. It’s not fighting for a right. It’s fighting for the spotlight you surely will get when you go all “Janet Jackson” on everyone. [laughter] And get to drink in the “oohs” and “aahs” from the other customers because “You made a baby!” Something a dog can do.
What an ass. (The part about breastfeeding comes at the end of this video of the segment, “New Rules.”)
My question is, Why go there Bill? We like your liberal politics. Breastfeeding mothers aren’t the enemy. Why piss us off?
And by the way, you’re an idiot. You wouldn’t be sitting there on television spouting off at the mouth if some woman however many years ago hadn’t wiped your ass everyday and fed you whatever the hell it was you ate way back then so you could grow up to be a functioning human being. Unless you were an orphan, show some respect. You know not what you speak.
Whew! Okay what’s up with you all? What do you think of Bill Maher? And what else is on your mind these days?
