Mrs. Cy here: The bolding is mine, I do not know what it actually means. In fact, I am currently at a loss for words about the whole article....

Some move to change ‘breast’ milk to ‘chest’ or ‘human’ milk in effort to be more inclusive | WGN-TV

CHICAGO (NewsNation Now) — There is a new push by some health care professionals to change the term “breast milk” to “chest milk.”

In the United Kingdom, one hospital made international headlines for changing the term “breast milk” to “human milk.” It’s an effort to be more inclusive to transgender and non-binary parents.

Illinois mother Jill Aspinwall says she wanted to provide the best nutrients possible for her three children, but admits she struggled to breastfeed and was often shamed for doing so.

“I’ve had dirty looks. I’ve had comments and I’m just letting it go,” said Aspinwall. “I am feeding my baby and providing the best nutrition possible. Some people were intolerant to breastfeeding in public — especially not covering up. But once a baby is a few months old they bat off that blanket and they want to see what’s going on.”

After her first experience with nursing her daughter, she decided to help others. So she became an internationally board-certified lactation consultant in 2015. Then she opened her own lactation service, “After Hours Breastfeeding Support.”

Now she teaches parents how to naturally feed their child. Recently, Aspinwall implemented terminology changes at her practice.

“I think that we can speak to people in general terms until we get to know that client individually and then when we know what pronouns they would like to use and to be addressed as then we can address them as such,” said Aspinwall.

She says she started to use the terms chest milk or human milk, instead of the traditional term. She says it’s a way to create a more comfortable atmosphere for transgender parents as well as non-binary parents — who do not identify with any gender.

“We’re transitioning now to use chest milk just to be more inclusive of all populations and that term is probably going to be changed in the near future,” said Aspinwall.

Medically, it is possible for transgender men and non-binary people to have a baby. Aspinwall says the term chest milk, human milk, and chest feeding make gender minorities feel more comfortable and open to the process.

“There are all different types of families and I think that the most important thing is that every type of family knows that breast milk is not just for any particular baby,” she explained.

But not all organizations or hospitals are following suit. Dr. Cecilia Banga specializes in delivering babies and prenatal care.

“This [term] is not really a pervasive topic of discussion here in the United States,” said Banga.

She says breast tissue itself is not specific to one gender.

“I think it’s important to note that regardless of the origin. It’s very important for infants to get milk that comes from humans. Depending on what we want to call it, breast milk, chest milk, human milk. That depends on the patient and what they are comfortable with. It doesn’t change the fact that the milk is coming from humans and that it’s coming from the breast,” said Banga.

The North Carolina doctor says that despite the term, milk itself is an essential necessity to babies’ health.

“Breast milk is a huge first step towards a baby developing a strong immune system because it is chock full of multiple nutrients,” said Banga.

Regardless of the term, both experts say it’s a person’s choice to decide what they want to call it and gender inclusion does not mean exclusion for any other patients.

They recommend patients tell their doctor or lactation expert which pronouns they prefer and the terms they are most comfortable with as they go through the process.

I don't believe the initial start of the movement is as stated in the article >> I think there's some trans-gender crap at work behind the scenes - I can almost feel the anti-birther gay theme ....

I believe this is a dup

ETA: It’s not. Laurylan posted it already, but it was a “naked link” and the thread was removed.

And “vagina” is the (formerly) scientific name fir that part of the female anatomy. Until the push to rename it the “front hole.” I am not making that up.
If you had a TRUE front hole, would that not be a penis? I swear these people don’t have a bloody thing to do other than think up stupid crap. BRING BACK COAL MINES. Let them think about that.

The most idiotic part of this is the fact that men have breasts. Yes, they're very different than a female breast, and develop different structures as the individual matures, but medically, they're still defined as breasts. So the term 'breast' is already gender-neutral.

BTW, breast cancer in males is no joke. The Male Breast: Masses, Malignancies and More
That was my thought as well! Men do have breast tissue and they can get breast cancer.

They don't like the term "breast milk" because, supposedly, men don't have breasts. They didn't pay attention in anatomy class apparently.

We have gotten to be a world of everything offending someone Unless you are just the ordinary person that’s older and just accepted things the way they really are! we must bow down to the politically sensitive era and more than likely a diversion for other problems! As Oprah says and I’m not just speaking racially, We just have to die!

I guess they win though, since we burn our non renewable resources of time and energy discussing vapid chit they come up with, while they steal the seats of power, media, white house, and gawd knows what else, while we watch the shiney chit show instead of TCOB.

Neither here nor there.

The problem I see with this is that the "front hole" is the urethra, not the vaginal opening. So not only do these idiots know nothing about genetics, they also know nothing about anatomy or physiology.

When you add the numbers of deaths from men's prostrate cancer and men's breast cancer, the number last I saw (maybe 2 yrs ago) were about the same number as Women's deaths from Breast cancer.

Made a comment a few years ago at a Grocery store checkout line when they asked "Would you like to donate to Women's Breast cancer fund?" Sure I said, added $2 to my grocery bill. Also said to her what I said above, she was shocked she had no idea of the prevalence of prostrate cancer in men. But guess what? next year during same period, you could donate to Woman's Breast Cancer or Men's Prostrate Cancer.

Does breast not mean just the upper torso of somebody anymore, regardless of their sex?
We got tits, teats, mammaries or chesticles for the female protrusions.

It is simple really. The demon-crats have and continue to use this same technique of desensitizing people over a period of time to accept what they (the dems) want them to believe. They do it through small, incremental little perception changes.

Propaganda and Persuasion, authors Garth S. Jowett and Victoria O'Donnell define Propaganda as-

The "deliberate, systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognitions, and direct behavior to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist".

Couple that with the human trait to learn to believe a lie they have heard over and over, as the truth even when at one time they knew it was a lie.

Chest Milk ... the whole gender lie ... it goes on and on.

What is sad is how the "frogs" in the water pan accept the lies at first because they don't want to be called names or told they are "evil", until lie after lie is piled on and the water boils them to death.

Yep, Chest Milk is just plain dam stupid but you can watch and see how it becomes accepted because it will be used over and over in the press and any of us who properly react will be labeled "haters" or worse.

This simple to see trick works over and over, yet is the technique that they've used to destroy the roots of this country.

We need more of this...

But the front one would be where urine comes out.

I had a friend eons ago, back in the day, who admitted to me that she thought that they were one and the same. I patiently explained that she skipped school on the wrong day.
