A transgender couple have released a video of a male trying to breastfeed their new baby. He claims the baby can latch on but he can’t lactate. He says he is not worried as they plan to supplement the feeds anyway.
Male bodies can’t lactate nor nourish a child. The mother who gave birth to the baby (the one in glasses) would’ve been able to breastfeed but for the breast removal. pic.twitter.com/JRDN1pQKj9— Rita Panahi (@RitaPanahi) July 12, 2021
Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, said the video is confronting and sad.
“Biology matters. Only females can get pregnant, give, birth and breastfeed. No amount of ‘feelings’ can justify this kind of behaviour. The baby needs nourishment and doesn’t exist to meet the strange desires of its parents.”
