Kasey Kahne Backs Away From His Disgust With Public Breastfeeding
This is not a reflection on NASCAR--this is a reflection of immaturity. And Kasey Kahne displayed a tremendous amount of immaturity when he berated a woman for breastfeeding in public recently, only to have to back away from his comments and toe the company line.
The "company line" of course is, "breastfeeding is sacrosanct."
You simply cannot criticize it anymore. That battle was lost years ago. Any squeamishness is considered rude and ill-mannered. No opinion matters--only that of the woman and her right to breastfeed in public. Deal with it. You can't win, and you cannot make fun of it.
In fact, there are three things you can't make fun of anymore: developmentally disabled people, Glee, and breastfeeding moms. And, of those three, I would say that making fun of Glee is pretty much the end of you as a person, so don't do it, man. Just don't do it.
Will Kahne grow up? He will if he wants to keep wearing all of those endorsement patches.
