What we’re reading today:
1. Alicia Silverstone knows that many of us don’t agree with her mama bird-baby bird feeding technique and she doesn’t care. “People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands for years. It’s a weaning process,” Silverstone told the audience at a Clueless Q&A. Firstly, there was a Cluessless Q&A with Silverstone and director Amy Heckerling?! Secondly, yeah, there are weirder things.
2. It doesn’t make any sense that same-sex partners would have been denied insurance benefits, but thankfully, a judge has ruled that to deny those benefits would be discrimination.
3. Yet another controversial book from France! Feminist author Elisabeth Badinter says that modern progressive parenting is anti-feminist. One of her gripes: breastfeeding. “Advocating on-demand breast-feeding for as long as the child wants it effectively deprives a mother of her time,” she writes in The Conflict: How Modern Motherhood Undermines the Status of Women.
