Seconded. Not worth discussing how stupid all this is.

Stupid sods! Women have breasts to breast feed their babies - if a "transman" can give birth and breastfeed a baby she is a bloody woman !!!!!!  Somebody please tell them - Men don't have babies - women do, are they raving mad :yell: :yell: :yell:  

I wish to hell men did have babies my husband could have taken his share and had one of ours.

Transgender men who choose to "chest-feed" their babies should be offered a greater level of support, a royal college has advised in new draft guidelines.

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) says trans men should be asked about their preferred manner of feeding before their baby is born and those who opt to chest-feed should be offered "chest-feeding support in the same manner as for cis-women".

I'm lost for words.

Ashy

It's an insult to women, and I think that was the intention.

The support should consist of a one legged stool. Inverted.

Why haven't "they" gone after men in the same way  ?
