I think I remember hearing something about men being able to breastfeed. Sometimes. (apparently it's in the Talmud)

Often it's if the wife dies or can't do it for some reason like illness.

The one in the Talmud is a miracle, so it doesn't count. :p

It may actually be true though. There are more recent records. So not actually a miracle, just a little-known quirk of nature.
The little anthropological evidence documented suggests it is possible. In the 1896 compendium Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine, George Gould and Walter Pyle catalogue several instances of male nursing being observed. Among them was a South American man, observed by Prussian naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, who subbed as wet nurse after his wife fell ill as well as male missionaries in Brazil that were the sole milk supply for their children because their wives had shriveled breasts. More recently, Agence France-Presse reported a short piece in 2002 on a 38-year-old man in Sri Lanka who nursed his two daughters through their infancy after his wife died during the birth of her second child.

I was in Japan in the early 1990s. Then back in the States for law school with my head buried in books. Imagine my culture shock when I finally ventured out into contemporary America and started meeting a large percentage of indigent clients covered in kanji tattoos. When I asked, only about half were anywhere close to knowing the correct meaning.

I find your ignorant claim that we can even identify gender, an imaginary social construct, triggering.

Your cis-white male hegemonic privilege leads you to demean ignorant people--including ignorant People of Color and other Victims--by assuming being ignorant is demeaning.

Stupid.

One reason might be that some people are talking about gendered behavior and the others are talking about gendered biology? Naw, couldn't be that. One group has to be politically insane.

Feminist Group Demands Spotify's New 'Hate Content' Policy Be Applied to Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eminem
Reason
When Spotify introduced its new "hate content and hateful conduct" policy—which promises to suppress songs for violent or hateful lyrics or offstage behavior—I predicted that the streaming service would soon be caught between users wanting easy access to popular music and activists demanding that artists be scrubbed from the platform.

...
Emphasis added.
...

Sure enough, the feminist group Ultraviolet has now sent a letter to Spotify thanking it for the initial steps of removing R. Kelly and XXXTentacion from official playlists— and asking that the company go further.

"These two men are not the only abusers on your platform," writes Ultraviolet's Shaunna Thomas. "We implore you to take a deeper look at the artists you promote." She goes on to call for the company to exile Eminem, Nelly, Don Henley of the Eagles, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Chris Brown, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, Ted Nugent, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

...
But wait there's more ...
... And at least two out of four Beatles—John Lennon and Ringo Starr—were domestic abusers. ...
Now that I think of it, it's a good thing Spotify doesn't do classical music. :lmao:

So, do they only remove 50% of the Beatles catalogue, or just the songs written by Lennon and ringo (did ringo write any?).

And they missed Liza Minnelli.

They are going after performers not authors (I think).

Is there a Shatner cover of Octopus' Garden?

WaPo wrote:What is the greatest threat to free speech on campus?

What is the greatest threat to free speech on campus today? If all you had to go by was the new report from the University of California at Berkeley’s Commission on Free Speech, you could be forgiven for thinking conservative provocateurs are single-handedly determined to destroy our First Amendment freedoms.

The report was commissioned after several violent protests reacting to pro-Trump rallies, a speech by conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos and a canceled speech from Ann Coulter. How to explain the violence that ripped apart the campus last year? “Ultra-conservative rhetoric, including white supremacist views and protest marches, legitimized by the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath,” the commission concludes, “encouraged far-right and alt-right activists to ‘spike the football’ at Berkeley. This provoked an at-times violent (and condemnable) response from the extreme left, tearing at the campus’s social fabric.”

The Berkeley document does not condemn the violence, mind you; that is virtually the only direct mention of it. But apparently, antifa’s violence is now eligible for condemnation, if someone else had a mind to provide it.

They have plenty of harsh words, however, for the conservatives who were targeted. “Many Commission members are skeptical of these speakers’ commitment to anything other than the pursuit of wealth and fame through the instigation of anger, fear, and vengefulness in their hard-right constituency.” Their invitations to speak represented “the assertion of individual rights at the expense of social responsibility by a handful of students.” As a result, the commission finds speech of this kind “hard to defend, especially in light of the acute distress it caused (and was intended to cause) to staff and students.”
