“Chestfeeding” kit for dads next step in ending gender inequality for transgender parents

David MenziesMission Specialist

I think I speak for men the world over when I say we’re more than happy to leave anything associated with pregnancy to womankind.

But, alas, because it’s 2019 and apparently nothing is more important than ending gender inequality, there’s now breaking news in the breastfeeding department concerning men.

For any man that’s champing at the bit to breastfeed a baby, Marie-Claire Springham, a design student in the U.K. claims to have developed a prototype kit that will enable them to do it.

Springham says she was inspired to create the “chestfeeding” kit after finding out that some men experience post-natal depression. I was about to call BS on that but then I remembered we’re talking about the UK where, in another concession to the transgender community, some schools are now teaching that boys can have periods.

I guess if a guy can experience a menstrual cycle, then breastfeeding isn’t that much of a leap after all, is it? Except, the kit comes with a drug called domperidone that isn’t approved for sale in the U.S. due to serious health risks associated with its use.

At the risk of creating a tempest in a B-cup, how about both sexes just continue to live with a little gender inequality instead?

Dan, the old saying that embodies the Christian position is to be IN the world (planet earth and its people) but not OF the World (that system in opposition to God and truth).

Dan, that is a great poem. I’m going to have to mull that one over. Education is not the same as intelligence. There are many educated people with little intelligence and many intelligent people with not much education. Life experience is a great teacher. Unfortunately life gives the test first and then gives the lesson…

And, Al. You can preach the Gospel all you want, but while we live on this Earth, we are on our own.. You know that as well as I do, that we have been told this…

Got to disagree with on this one.
…"for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”
Hebrew 13:5

That is why sent the Holy Spirit:
“I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;”

So, how about we deal with the issues at hand here on Earth.

How do we know what to do if we ignore the creator’s message to us. That was what the prophets did. They told us how to live.

Al, discuss the Issues all you want, with Andrew and the like.. You will not win, nor will you convince them otherwise, with superior logic or evidence.. They don’t play by the same rules, and they certainly do not understand logic or evidence… But, continue as you see fit.. You will lose, because they do not care what you have to say… To them, you lack knowledge and evidence.. To them, you are inferior. Sorry, but that’s just the way it is..
-———————-
I realize all of this may be true. But read the prophet Ezekiel again. Andrew may never come to a realization of the truth but others may. The call is to be faithful, not successful.

Thanks Dan Mancuso!… Judging from your many postings I gather that your day to day experience with “horses and dogs” has given you the insight and personal priorities that keep you going… For me, it’s also my beloved dogs, which give me a daily “grounding” and reminder as to what “values” are really important, versus, what is “intellectual bullshit” that too many Canadians have time to indulge in day to day… And, very obviously, in Ottawa, each and every hour of the day and night…

You know that as well as I do, that we have been told this… Yes, I have heard it all, and have read the Bible several times.. So, how about we deal with the issues at hand here on Earth.. When our higher power comes back, all will be right in the World… Until then, let’s deal with what we have now. This is our responsibility… You do the right thing here, and you will look good in the Lord’s eyes…

AL PETERSON:
I really don’t know how to respond to all that…including ‘Revelation in 28 minutes!’ WOW!

Uh…the baby during the sermon, seemed unintentionally symbolic of lefties…LOL

I like being of the world, I’ve been in it my whole life…John – who also wrote The Book of Revelation – notwithstanding.
I have trouble turning the other cheek and I’ve been mislabeled, confrontational. More than one pastor has suggested my intellect may be getting in the way of my faith…and I’m a semi-literate highschool dropout who works with horses and dogs in the bush. Oh, and I’m an angry old White guy too…apparently.
This opening to a poem by Fulke Greville, explains, or at least illustrates the conflict:

“O wearisome condition of humanity!
Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot and yet forbidden vanity;
Created sick, commanded to be sound.
What meaneth nature by these diverse laws?
Passion and reason, self-division cause.
Is it the mark or majesty of power
To make offenses that it may forgive?…”

Why does anyone here bother with people like this Andrew dope?
It’s much more interesting to not read her/his comments.

Jan, you’re a Christian. Did you read my response to Dan Manusco? That is why -at least for me.

" In addition to being a wise man, the Preacher also taught the people knowledge; and he pondered, searched out and arranged many proverbs. The Preacher sought to find delightful words and to write words of truth correctly. The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like [a]well-driven nails; they are given by one Shepherd."

Al, Robert, watch out for Andrew’s mouth though, when he opens it and removes all doubt, the string will be the first expulsion so you have a warning what follows; the plug that can only fail when applied in Andrew.

Robert, how about beating the out of them by superior logic and evidence?
commented 2019-03-11 18:24:58 -0400
Here’s a thought.. Ignore Andrew for one week. Do not respond/reply to anything he/she says… Try it, and if Andrew comes back after one week, then extend the time by two weeks, and so on. Eventually, the issue will go away. If we were younger and in the playground of a school, the best way to deal with this would be to beat the hell out of it.. Been there, done that and it certainly works. But this is Social Media, and Trolls have nothing better to do, then to instigate.. It’s their MO…

AL PETERSON,
It’s always good to get those little reminders from the Bible…but why does it always have to be so difficult trying to be a Christian on planet Earth.
-———————————-
Dan, we are called to overcome.because the World hates the followers of God as much as God himself:

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also.

John 15:18-23.

And so we are encouraged to be unlike the world:

15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.
1John 2:15

Be encouraged brother.

Muta Ween, I appreciate Dr Covey but I will always place scripture over men’s thinking. I know the Troll’s MO. The truth must always be upheld or it will be overcome by lies. Keep the argument on track and don’t rely on vulgar insults. Learn the facts and use them. The theologians say, “All truth is God’s truth”.

All knowing andrew…once again you’re wrong. The Rebel is not being left behind, it is the leftist pro(re)gressives like you and your ilk that are now beginning to eat dust. In desperation to remain relevant, shit like this article talks about, is just another attempt at your type trying to change what is only natural. However, in your case, is seems very natural for you to be extremely moronic…….all the time.

MUTA WEEN, AL PETERSON, You are both correct.

MUTA WEEN, my parents always taught me to ignore assholes and then they’ll go away. It’s hard to apply that theory here because someone always feeds the trolls (mea culpa) – whose main motivation is to seek attention, positive or negative – as opposed to their secondary motivation of obfuscation, sewing confusion and doubt and wrench-jamming, etc.

AL PETERSON, that has to be one of the most compelling arguments for ad hominem attacks, er, rather, rebuttals to trolls for the sake of their eternal souls…in fact it shivered me timbers, a bit!

ignore him because it wasted valuable time and energy that could be devoted to authentic and practical resolution if problems.


No problem was ever solved by sitting in an echo chamber discussing what you already know. There is a reason why history remembers the provocateurs, because they’re the ones that affect real change.

Case in point, the Rebel, which doesn’t understand why it’s being left behind. Rather than try to figure it out, you’d rather repeat the same failed platitudes and pat each other on the back, and express hostility to anybody outside the groupthink bubble.

“And Genetics makes it quite clear that Men have a physical advantage over women in sports where so called trans women are competing against REAL women but the progressives seem to think that does not matter. And Genetics says men and women are different as well, no identifying can change that FACT! "
Purely physiological, not genetic, and entirely related to testosterone levels. There’s a reason doping tests target testosterone. A male with low testosterone may not be able to compete with a high-testosterone female, and it gets even more complex with external supplementation.

Not that that’s the sole determinant. It’s possible to be “androgen insensitive” – to be genetically XY, have male testosterone levels, but if the body is “deaf” to the signals, they’ll develop as females. Although, since even that’s rarely cut and dried, they do tend to have enough of an athletic advantage to do very well at competitions.

Genetics and biology are only loosely related, friend. The idea of an ironclad link was never particularly true, but just how weak that link really is, has become highlighted as scientists delve deeper into genomic data and realize that we really have no idea what’s going on.

Al Peterson , The troll in question is nothing but a provocateur who always expresses the contrary point of view simply to take up space and often move the conversation off topic with ridiculous arguments.
My comment was based on the advise we received from a consultant in a company sponsored workshop. His advise was to cocoon the saboteur ,ignore him because it wasted valuable time and energy that could be devoted to authentic and practical resolution if problems.
You might have heard of the consultant. The late Doctor Steven Covey. New York Times best selling author and also a deeply religious man. I appreciate your references to scripture but I think I will follow Dr.Covey’s wise advise.

And that’s why they are here because every time you entertain their stupid posts ,they walk away feeling that they won the argument.
-——————-
If we don’t respond to their posts then they definitely think they have won.

If we don’t respond to their posts then other readers will think we have no answer to the easily demonstrable BS.

You will not doubt have noticed that when you have a substantive proof of them being wrong they just shut up and move on. But hey bring the same lame argument up again next time in hopes of snagging some unthinking newbie who hasn’t heard their lie previously.

God told the prophet Ezekiel to prophesy whether or not people listen:

4 Then He said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them. 5 For you are not being sent to a people of unintelligible speech or difficult language, but to the house of Israel, 6 nor to many peoples of unintelligible speech or difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. But I have sent you to them who should listen to you; 7 yet the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, since they are not willing to listen to Me. Surely the whole house of Israel is stubborn and obstinate. 8 Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. 9 Like emery harder than flint I have made your forehead. Do not be afraid of them or be dismayed before them…

18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself. 20 Again, when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I place an obstacle before him, he will die; since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 However, if you have warned the righteous man that the righteous should not sin and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; and you have delivered yourself.”

Not this dad!!!

This about as lame as the CDC recommending that mothers delay breastfeeding their babies because according to their “scientific” wisdom they claim that breast-feeding impedes vaccine efficacy… What’s a mother to do… express milk and dump it down the drain for the first three months after her child is born?
https://www.foodrenegade.com/cdc-advises-delayed-breastfeeding-boost-vaccine-efficacy/

When my first wife passed away due to a prescribed drug induced brain hemorrhage shortly after the twins were born, I brought the babies home and fed them raw milk mixed with raw honey and water from the well. I never brought them to see a doctor for well baby visits and they are now 30 year old healthy adults with children of their own…

Anything contrary to science, common sense, or morality the leftie trolls that post on this website are all for it. Why is that, I wonder. "

What science is that, Peter? Your 50 year old, high school level education in Mendelian genetics, a model that rarely works even in the peas he was observing, and was predicated on several ideas that, in the last ten or fifteen years, have been proven wrong? Not a moral issue, and “common sense” isn’t a valid replacement for empirical observation.
