I rarely write about anything non-Moose related, but I wanted to give some love to W magazine for putting a picture of Angelina Jolie nursing one of her twins on the cover.  I am a huge advocate of breastfeeding and think any kind of endorsement is good for babies.  But I have to comment on the idiotic remarks from people calling the photo “sexual.”  It is a photo of a beautiful, happy mother in one of the most intimate moments with her child.  Did I mention the photo was taken by Brad Pitt?  Do you think he, the man who actually gets to have sex with this woman, thought the moment was sexual in any way?!?  Are we so immature that the second we see a glimpse of a boob we think SEX SEX SEX?  Nevermind, don’t answer that.
