Women who breastfeed? "Sows"

A right-wing radio host in Milwaukee lets us all know that it's ridiculous to pass a law protecting women who breastfeed in public. Because mothers are "sows" - oh wait, they're "adamant sows" (damn these uppity women) - who insist on this "crude practice". How very, very lovely.

It's always a quick, invigorating slap to the face to see how quickly right-wing types, when feeling even the slightest bit threatened, run to dehumanize women by turning them into animals (or body parts, or ugly hags...) "What do we need feminism for? Women and men are equal now!" Uh-huh.

Nice. A crude practice.
