Slap in the face for motherhood as World Breastfeeding Week prioritises trans women’s ‘chestfeeding’ over the safety of young mums

10 34 1

Nothing quite celebrates motherhood like kicking off World Breastfeeding Week with the sacking of a bunch of female counsellors for refusing to engage with trans women ‘chestfeeders’.

But that’s exactly what happened in Australia where three of the seven breastfeeding counsellors recently suspended from the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) for balking at offering support to male-born ‘new mums’ on nursing babies have now been handed their marching orders. Perfect timing at the start of an internationally recognised week from August 1 to 7 dedicated to the benefits of breastfeeding. Trans activists 3, Born-women 0.

The problem is that anyone working in the mothers’ support field who dares voice gender critical views is bullied, coerced and cajoled into adopting the ideology, and if that fails, they’re cancelled. Simple. What’s even more problematic is that those who are silenced – women – are those with the most skin in the game.

Inside breastfeeding organisations like the ABA and even the UK’s Association of Breastfeeding Mothers, as one ABM member explained to me, the gender gestapo’s mission creep is underway and the safeguarding book for mothers and their babies has been thrown out the window.

Sadly, so intolerant........
