TIME Magazine, in synchronized coordination with the rest of the pathetic media, found some random mother and child to exploit to mock a reverent holiday.  The article is presumably about the conflicts associated with “attachment parenting”—a parenting theory popular in the 1970’s that has made a small comeback among mothers today.  

The cover touts a mother posed with her 3-year-old boy (whom they made look much older in the photo) with his mouth fixed on her breast for all to see.  Willing to neglect all social graces to boost their slow sales at TIME, the magazine pits parental rights advocates against breastfeeding mothers, and makes a mockery of motherhood, in general.

The cover is mere bait to lure curious onlookers to subscribe to their site to read the article.  I didn’t.  But the content of the article is somewhat irrelevant, because it has become the “Mother’s Day” photo of 2012, drawing unknown numbers of confused onlookers to subscribe just to see what is said about this photo.

I submit that their cover exposes a deeper agenda.  I see a disgusting political play to attempt to force families to cynically choose sides between the “out of my bedroom” business, and the “family-friendly, values-voters” types.  This sort of division is an attempt to prop up the Obama re-election campaign’s invention of a Republican “war on women” that doesn’t exist.

Comments immediately ensued with feminists screaming at all proverbial white men to keep their hands off of their bodies (as she bares it complete with a photo suggesting indecency, even sexual perversion).
