"I cut off my breasts because I wanted to be a man, but now I miss doing and can't do what my body was originally meant to do, so I'm going to make my WOC partner slave do the work for me because of stupid decisions I made, and call it empowering. Also, I feed the baby, not her. I get to enjoy this closeness and intimacy that I would have had if I hadn't cut off my fucking breasts, while my baby struggles with insufficient feeding and poor latching training and possibly inappropriate excess hormone exposure, and my partner smiles at me and misses out on bonding time because she's too busy being a milk machine for me. So blessed. So richly genderqueer."

Fuck you Lucy Kelly. And fuck you whoever thought this was an amazing marketing campaign.

(More of my unhinged rambling here. The artist's instagram is a rabbit hole. https://ovarit.com/o/ItsAFetish/135310/it-s-a-breastfeeding-fetish-but-make-it-even-wtfkier)

I had a very hard time breastfeeding, I just couldn’t produce enough. I kept trying because it seemed like such a non-issue for so many women, at least that’s what all the breastfeeding advocates made it seem like. Even with a very supportive husband who would remind me that I didn’t have to keep pushing my body to do it, and that bottle feeding would give him another opportunity to bond with the baby (he was already giving baby every bath, every diaper change, etc.) and even then I felt like cattle just waiting to be milked every 2 hours.

Can’t imagine being forced into that because “my partner wants to have their cake and eat it too”. They want all the “admiral” aspects of masculinity and femininity but still put the onus on females to make it happen for them.

I feel you. I wasn't producing anything at all. They wanted me to feed every 2 hours and pump every 45 minutes round the clock for an indeterminate amount of time. I gave up and switched to the bottle. A woman absolutely delirious from sleep deprivation does not a good mother make.
