MEN CAN BREASTFEED?


I know! I know! That's ridiculous when one thinks about it...but simply because we got used to the idea that "Mother's do the breastfeeding"! But according to this very short article I came across, a Jarred Diamond, a physiology professor in UCLA, it is NOT IMPOSSIBLE since "Men have undeveloped milk production". He actually just predicts that since there are thousands of cases before that men produced milk due to hormonal imbalance, with the continuous technological advancement and of broadening knowledge, there will come a time that MEN CAN BREASTFEED.

The problem I see here though is men's acceptance of such idea...unless maybe if they perceive themselves mother's and not father's to their kids.

How about you? Can you share your view on this? Any reaction?

I heard about it a couple of years ago, I think it will take a lot from guy and women also to accept this idea, there are still a lot of society stereotypes about gender roles, I will personally prefer don't have to go through a full pregnancy, delivery, it terrifies me. That is why I wish guy could go thought the same thing than us.

If that time comes in, does that mean men will also have boobs dangling around? I find it hilarious just thinking of it! :p
