Time Magazine Trumpets Another Creepy Non-Trend

Time channels Game of Thrones for its cover


  1. Judge Fredd:

    *Blinka blinka*

    WTD did I just see????

  2. MNHawk:

    Is that going to be staring me in the face at the grocery store? Not that would be a bad thing to be pointed in my face or anything...just sayin'

  3. el coronado:

    If you're going to claim Libertarian - legalize all drugs, end the government school/indoctrination racket, purchase automatic weapons & RPG's at the sporting goods store without a permit, all that good stuff - you gotta be consistent. OK, yeah, a kid who's almost 4 and still breast-feeding is, to modern eyes, (more than) a little weird.

    But he's *her* kid, she's obviously *not* abusing him, and I'd bet the folks who'll squeal "that's gonna screw the kid up for life!" are the same ones who made equally dire predictions about homeschooled kids, who end up trouncing government-schooled kids in side-by-side tests. (Like that moronic imbecile Tim Tebow, for example.) True, she's clearly an attention whore who probably sought out 'Time' rather than vice-versa, but SHE's that kid's mother, not any of us. Maybe we oughtta just mind our own damn business.

  4. morganovich:

    and the likelihood of that kid getting beaten up at school tomorrow and every day from now until college: 100%.

    attachment parenting is one thing, but getting your kid national attention in that photo on the cover of time, well, that might well, it may not be abuse per se, but it's sure not a nice thing to do to your kid.

  5. Ted Rado:

    The poor kid will NEVER live this down.

    On a humorous note, maybe the mother is training him for when he is a grown man and has a busty girlfriend?

  6. Smock Puppet, 10th Dan Snark Master:

    That Time cover is broken...

    It's been fixed, here.
