Just minutes away from Brad Pitt’s birthplace, Phantom-Financial has posted a life-sized park bench statue. It’s apparently inspired by last year’s cover of W magazine, and the statue is just in time for World Breastfeeding Week.
I, too, was inspired by Jolie’s nursing pic. As a lactivist, I think it’s fantastic when women like this show that natural human processes are even done by hot starlet MILFs.
And though the statue is “not endorsed by any celebrity”, WTF is up with the naked breastfeeder? And–gasp!–in public?!
The press release also has this odd statement:
In recognition of the global effort to encourage breastfeeding, one twin is depicted as being of African descent. Future castings of the statue will represent other world cultures through variations of the babies’ patina coloring.
Let me say this: I love that she breastfeeds. And as the mother of a biracial son (not to mention as a human being in general), I’ve also appreciated that the Pitt-Jolie family embraces multiculturalism.
However artstic and hippy dippy it may be, we’re seriously turning one of her twins to being “of African descent” to encourage breastfeeding in all cultures? And we’re going to make this Anglo woman different colors to further the multicultural breastfeeding cause? Huh?
Boobs are used to sell a lot. I’m glad that this time it’s the right product. But really, what’s up with nakey Jolie? And the statue’s changing skin tone?
Please, folks, enlighten me. I’m lost here. Maybe I’m still recovering from Bebé Glotón!
Naked Jolie starts in the Oklahoma City Metro area and later will move to London. Check out the press release here. Image from that press release.
