Breastfeeding charity sparks outrage by allowing men who identify as female to attend meetings | Daily Mail Online

A breastfeeding charity has sparked outrage by allowing men who identify as female to attend meetings for mothers struggling to feed their babies.

The British branch of the La Leche League (LLLGB) is offering to provide breastfeeding support to transgender women, who were born male.

A statement on the charity’s website says: ‘Trans men, trans women and non-binary individuals may choose to breastfeed or chestfeed their babies.

‘You do not need to have given birth to breastfeed or chestfeed, as we can also see in the experiences of those nursing adopted babies.’

Chestfeeding is a term used to avoid causing offence to women who have transitioned to become men and feel uncomfortable using the word ‘breast.’

But this week a former La Leche League leader told how ‘alarmed’ she was at the prospect of trans women joining meetings with other mothers in a post on Mumsnet.

She wrote: ‘I was a La Leche League leader for many years and am very upset to see how the organisation has lost its focus on the mother and baby.

‘LLLGB should not be promoting the idea that males can induce lactation to feed a baby.

‘There is no evidence to say this is safe, only an anecdotal example of a case where a doctor in the US enabled this to happen using off label drugs,’ she added.

  1. This is absolutely insane. Women are sacred givers and nurtures of life. They are biologically critical to the survival of the survival of humanity. To demean women by catering to the delusions of those suffering from Gender Identity Disorder or Gender Dysphoria to make some kind of misguided political statement is destructive biologically, mentally, emotionally spiritually, and socially to everyone involved. A eunuch in drag does not make a woman. Eunuch’s do not need assistance breastfeeding. Eunuch’s don’t give birth. Eunuch’s do not have mammary glands, they have silicon sacks. Silicon sacks dot not make a breast. Silicon sacks DO NOT produce milk. Perhaps the greatest atrocity of this article is the complete indifference for the child’s well being. With no evidence that this artificial puss has any nutritional value. With what we know about the dangers hormones and chemicals in our diet have on us. If force feeding a defenseless infant toxic secretions fabricated with steroids and artificial antibodies isn’t tantamount to child abuse, incest is consensual sex. Yes that is a vile repugnant statement as is La Leche League (LLLGB) policy.
