This magazine cover caused shock and outrage in the US, according to this article

Honestly, I don't see the problem. First of all, the people that subscribe to this magazine BABY TALK have probably had actual real live BABIES. Most of them have probably breastfed. You don't see the nipple, the baby could be sucking on her shoulder for all we know.
Here half naked women on magazines are not covered up. In fact, there will be a large poster of the magazine cover in the kiosk. Women go half naked on the beach all the time. Though, admittedly, some of them I would prefer that they wouldn't.
Women can breast feed in public and no men go crazy. They don't have to go sit in the restroom in one of the stalls so that even other women do not see them breastfeeding.

"Gross, I am sick of seeing a baby attached to a boob," the mother of a
four-month-old said.

Another reader said she was "horrified" when she received the magazine and
hoped that her husband hadn't laid eyes on it.
"I had to rip off the cover since I didn't want it laying around the house," she said.

Uh, okay. Why are you scared of your husband who has certainly seen you breastfeeding his baby, to see the suggestion of the breast of another woman? Do you think that he will leave you for the woman on the magazine cover because it is such a sexual image?

Sometimes I admit that I am a little shocked by what I see here, on television and magazines. But seriously people, a woman breastfeeding a baby- that is what they are FOR. Even if I personally would feel uncomfortable doing it myself in public, that doesn't mean it should be banned.

I see nothing wrong with the cover. But then again, I have two kids.

Married men everywhere will appreciate that cover, because deep down they know two things:
1) babies are taking over the earth, and
2) because of #1, men have to wait it out before they get the breast(s) back.
