The Other White Milk?

Updated to add: Mojavi has linked to this and also is providing the contact info for all those Porky Wankers over at her site. Way to go, Nancy Drew!

Okay, I don't usually jump on Breastfeeding Bandwagons much. Actually, I have very strong opinions about the topic, but I prefer to be Switzerland because I am weary of the Mommy Wars. The Swiss are a peaceful people, no? Why fight? However. What I am about to link to pissed me off. Royally. Apparently, The Lactivist is being threatened by the National Pork Board for a CafePress t-shirt she was selling that had the slogan "The Other White Milk". Part of the letter she received contained the following ludicrous and insulting verbiage:

"In addition, your use of this slogan also tarnishes the good reputation of the National Pork Board's mark in light of your apparent attempt to promote the use of breastmilk beyond merely for infant consumption........."

WTF? Like the site is promoting an adult breastfeeding fetish? Did those Fat Porky Wankers even bother to fucking look at her site? Has the world gone mad?

A special thanks goes out to Lakelines for the linkage on this.

I am pro-breastfeeding if at all possible but I only did so (well, pumped) for 8 weeks or so.

I find the National Pork Board's response incredibly idiotic. Good grief. What a bunch of fucking morons.

There is an ADULT BREASTFEEDING FETISH? Good lord. I'm refraining from googling that, so I'll just have to take you at your word. ;)

Holy cow (hehe), I cannot fathom how they could be so ignorant as to believe that slogan would promote breastfeeding beyond infant consumption. And, realistically, I doubt breastmilk would irreparably harm anyone if they consumed it beyond infancy.
