Pork Board threatens breastfeeding supporter

Yeah, I know this is a writing blog, but I'm also a breastfeeding mother. (For another month or little boy is growing up. *sniff*) I heard about this through the BabyCenter message boards, and decided to check it out:


Apparently, a WAHM with a breastfeeding-support blog: has been threatened with a lawsuit from the National Pork Board for selling a t-shirt that reads "the other white milk." The Pork Board claims that not only is she "tarnishing" their "good reputation" but that her site promotes breastfeeding for "beyond merely infant consumption" (read: adult breastfeeding). Not only is that weird, it's ludicrous, as anyone who spends a few seconds on her blog can tell.

I think the Pork Board is doing more to tarnish their good reputation by picking on this blogger and inviting the ire of breastfeeding mothers across the country.

Anyway, I just thought I'd post this to lend my support and add to the "viral" web defense she's mounting, as discussed in her post.

Well, that's just silly. I guess they figure any publicity is good publicity.
