Beer, breastmilk -- whatever gets you through the night

Yesterday I opened up my fantasy football scoreboard to see if my come-from-behind victory was proceeding as planned. Indeed it was, but that's not what made me do a doubletake.


So if the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the Ad Council think that a sports website -- with a beer sponsorship, no less -- is a good place for an ad encouraging breastfeeding, what is Facebook's problem? Or Bill Maher's?

I've read many eloquent posts on the subject of what an idiot Maher is and how ridiculous Facebook is, and I completely agree with them. So I'm not going to add anything else except this little Moment of Zen from the world of sports.

And, no comments from the peanut gallery (ahemKyleahem) about my crappy team. It may have been an ugly win, but it was a win.

Now I'm all afire with righteous indignation, just when I was going to bed!

Seriously, though, thanks for the links. The mind boggles at how warped the dominant culture is about this topic.

I also have nothing eloquent to add, but that's AWESOME to see bfing promoted on a sports site!!

I absolutely love that. Seriously.

Added you to the rolling blogroll of posts on the subject of Bill Maher's being an ignorant ass.

That is so awesome. Totally, totally awesome.

And Kyle is too busy teasing me about my spectacular loss (my opponent had Carson Palmer! 50 points from a QB!) to give you any garbage.

Hmmm, maybe the sports demographic is changing?

My mom brought a few old issues of Martha Stewart Living with her on this last visit, and I notice that the advertisers must believe that readers are very concerned with aging skin. It was disconcerting how many lotion/cream ads there were!

That is great.

I've been too angry about the Facebook/Maher crap to write anything about it. Tihs, however, makes me feel a little better.

That is so interesting! I hadn't heard of that.

Damselfly said...

Haha! How did that ad get there?

Not a bad team, actually. Get rid of Muhsin and you should do alright :)

And I'm all for bared breasts. In any capacity. I really don't know what the problem is...

My FF team sucks too. This week I'm losing to my husband - who LOVES bf'ing as it were... oh wait... I mean SUPPORTS. Okay, that came out really wrong, but I figure it's a funny foot in mouth....
