*shrug* Societal norms? Different strokes for different folks?

Then why do we have lactase?
Why do other mammals wean their young?

No, but what if they asked you for some of your all natural, human milk?

I have also squirted breast milk in my SOs eyes when he had conjuctivitis, as well as my 3 year olds.
Shit's like a f**king super drug man. Cures everything. SO said he likes the fact I'm still breastfeeding cos if another big earthquake happens, at least there's still a food source.

It's a comedy show on NBC I think.

Oh I agree I don't see anything wrong with it but whenever I told someone about it they would say it was disgusting lol. It sucked because I think it put SO off the idea a bit. I figured someone here would think it's gross.

Yes. He didn't want to know because it is creepy.
If my husband wanted some out of curiosity or a sexual interest, no problem. If he asked as he was thirsty, nope.

It's a mutation. Not everyone has the enzyme. I actually think the rough number of people who have that enzyme is only around 40%. All humans SHOULD be lactose intolerant.




And because all other animals can't pump and pour a cup of milk for their young. They aren't as civilized/advanced as we are, obviously. I'm sure the species would take a hit to their population if they had their young stuck to their teet for years.

It's just what society deems normal. Wearing clothing, avoiding passing gas in public... all considered social norms. They don't necessarily make sense but it's what we do.

We typically should be lactose intolerant. I am, which means I'm not a freaky mutant like all you non lactose intolerant people.

I mean, if they had a legit reason for it. If someone was sick, sure. But no... I'm not going to pump breast milk and just give it away because someone likes it. I don't see anyone giving ME gallons of free milk because I like it.

I'm pointing out the "naturalness / unnaturalness (not a word) of giving a healthy 9 yr old BMW on request.
