The Myth of Male Motherhood: Is Trans Breast Milk Harming Newborn Babies?

The war on children is more noticeable than ever. They are being injected with synthetic hormones before they can properly consent. They are receiving surgeries that irreversibly damage their bodies. They are told that this is necessary and they cannot live a happy life without receiving off-label interventions to satisfy an urge that was put in their heads by the adults in their lives who they are supposed to trust the most. "Gender-affirming care" has been declared as experimental – rightfully so. Boys and girls are being used as lab rats. They are being experimented on. And it doesn't just stop there.

Just when you thought the war on children could not get any worse, a new experiment is gaining popularity and endangering our most vulnerable: newborn babies.

Men who identify as women are now seeking resources to breastfeed babies. This sacred act that has always been between a mother and her newborn baby is now being colonized by adult men pumping themselves with dangerous drugs to “affirm" their "gender identity” via having a newborn suck on their male nipples. In order to truly understand how outrageous this is, one must first understand how important breastfeeding is. Breastfeeding is one of the most natural processes a woman can carry out, on the basis of health, maternity, and biological functioning.

It is an aspect of motherhood that must be protected at all costs. Breastfeeding provides critical unmatched protection for newborn babies in the first few months of life, as well as creating a unique bond between a mother and her child that is not like any other. Breast milk is referred to as liquid gold, as it contains more than 200 ingredients including water, proteins, good fats, carbohydrates, antibodies, lactoferrin, vitamins A, D, E and K, minerals, necessary hormones, growth factor and good bacteria. The CDC states that breastfeeding helps protect babies from asthma, obesity, type 1 diabetes, severe lower respiratory diseases, acute otitis media, gastrointestinal infections, necrotizing enterocolitis, creates constant and routine mother/baby interaction, helps increase skin to skin duration, and even helps prevent SIDS. Breastfeeding provides ALL of the nutrients a baby needs, and your breast milk changes daily to adjust to your baby's individual needs. During a growth spurt, your baby will signal to their mothers body to produce more high fat milk by cluster feeding. When a baby is sick, their saliva will trigger a biological response when in contact with their mother's nipples, triggering her body to produce more milk with illness-specific antibodies. Women are the ONLY mammals in the animal kingdom whose milk fluctuates antibodies depending on the health of mother and her baby. Holistic doctors often suggest putting drops of breast milk (from a EBF mom) into babies' ears or eyes to help clear up irritation or infection. Breast milk can be used for diaper rashes, a natural eczema treatment, and to cure cradle cap.

Breastfeeding doesn't only provide benefits for babies, it also has many benefits for the mother, such as reduced risk of postpartum depression, helps engage and facilitate maternal bonding, lowers the risk for type 2 diabetes, and even lowers the risk of cancer.

According to Dr. Ruth Petersen, director of CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity,“Breastfeeding provides unmatched health benefits for babies and mothers. It is the clinical gold standard for infant feeding and nutrition, with breast milk uniquely tailored to meet the health needs of a growing baby. We must do more to create supportive and safe environments for mothers who choose to breastfeed.”

All of these benefits do not come easily. It is extremely difficult for most mothers to exclusively breastfeed their babies. According to the CDC, only 24% of babies are exclusively breastfed through 6 months and only 17% percent are still breastfed at 18 months - despite the World Health Organization recommending breastfeeding until at least the age of two. The early days of breastfeeding a newborn is filled with pure exhaustion. It's a commitment to give your entire self, physically and mentally, to this new little human. Unlike formula-fed babies, exclusively breastfed babies need to feed every two hours, around the clock, 24/7 with no breaks. This means the mother will be attached to her baby at all times with the exception of the 60 minute intervals she has for sleep. A new mother's breasts will fill and become engorged as her body regulates to the rhythm of her new baby's needs. Despite the early challenges, babies are born with the instinct to be breastfed. Once they are born and placed onto the mother's chest for “skin to skin," they will root as they are cued simply by SMELLING their mother. Newborns are tuned into mothers smell, sound of her heartbeat, and voice. The first few weeks of life, a baby has to work overtime to breastfeed. Latching correctly is difficult for both mom and baby, and the baby has to really work to stimulate the breast into let down. In fact, breastfeeding is so tiring for a newborn that they usually need to sleep immediately after feeding. Sometimes they are too tired to stimulate let down and have to be roused to ensure proper nutrition. Women’s breasts are designed for let down, males' nipples are not. A baby latching onto a male nipple to suckle for milk will have to suckle past the point of exhaustion just to get a drop. Studies have shown that even with medication to help produce “milk” production, it is not enough for it to be nutritionally beneficial for the baby.

Men who call themselves "mothers" are using The Newman-gold garb protocol, a protocol which was originally developed for mothers of adopted babies or for mothers whose baby was born via surrogate. The protocol involves taking exogenous hormones to induce lactating and breast pumping every 2-3 hours. This method was NOT intended for males to use. The chemicals that these men are using in an attempt to lactate are Domperidone and Motilium, which increase levels of prolactin, thus tricking their male bodies into producing milk.

This drug is incredibly dangerous and is banned in the United States.

The U.S pulled Domperidone from the market after it was found to be causing fatal cardiac arrhythmias. Its intended use is to help treat nausea and vomiting. Using it as an attempt to induce lactation is off label. There have been studies on this drug and it has been found to pass through breast milk and enter babies' bodies. Yes, you read the right.

These off-label drugs, some of which are dangerous and illegal, are entering the newborn's bodies. This sounds very unsafe. And infants cannot communicate if they are having any negative side effects from this poison.

It has been widely shared that the potential effects of this medication could cause potentially FATAL outcomes for the newborn. This is not breast milk. It may look or taste like breast milk, but it is poison, plain and simple.

Not to mention there has been no significant evidence to suggest this toxic fluid is equivalent to female breast milk. There has been one study showing male breast milk does contain "...Values of protein, fat, lactose and calorie content at or above those of standard-term milk," but as stated above, those are not the only ingredients in natural womens breast milk – nor does it account for the importance of changing antibodies to protect and heal. There is much risk with no reward for the baby.

Why would anyone do such a thing to a newborn baby, when it can potentially harm them…or worse.

The attempt to normalize male breastfeeding does not only create space for potential physical and emotional harm, but there is also an erotic component to it. It is a paraphilic disorder which primarily occurs in heterosexual men. These men are often married to/partner with women. And it has been noted that they become jealous of their wives while she is pregnant. This paraphilia is called "Autogynephilia," which simply means "love for oneself as a woman." Autogynephilia has been sweeping the nation and bleeding heavily into transgender spaces. It is defined as a male's propensity to be sexually aroused by the thought of himself as female. These men go through Hormone Replacement Therapy and get surgery in order to obtain female-looking body parts in order to satisfy their fetishistic desire for womanhood. While trans activists claim that this phenomenon is not real, it is still diagnosed as a sub-category of Transvestic Disorder. Research on the topic is still carried out. So far, there are four different types of autogynephilia that have been documented in men who identify as women (Lawrence, 2012). The four types are Transvestic Autogynephilia (erotic arousal associated with the act or fantasy of wearing women’s clothing), Anatomic Autogynephilia (arousal associated with the fantasy or reality of having female anatomic features), Behavioral Autogynephilia (arousal associated with the act or fantasy of engaging in female-typical behavior), and Physiologic Autogynephilia (arousal associated with the fantasy or simulation of being pregnant, menstruating, or lactating). Although physiologic autogynephilia is probably the least common type, several informants and case studies have noted its presence in these men. Fantasies involving pregnancy were especially frequent in this group (2012).

It's a fetish. It is a fetish which manifests into a paraphilic disorder where they experience distress from not having female bodies.

The most disturbing part is that men who have this erotic dysfunction are trying to obtain "civil rights" on the basis of their so-called "gender identity." What civil rights do they not have?

The hard truth is that they are campaigning for the "civil right" to force others to participate in their fetish. They often experience sexual gratification from being referred to as women and obtaining female-typical anatomy. "Transgender rights" are currently a hot topic in the United States. They include easy access to hormones and surgery on demand. And they include "pronoun mandates," where it is required to refer to a man as she/her, or else one can get charged with "sex harassment" towards these men. It strips women of their free speech, forcing them to lie and unknowingly participate in somebody's autogynephilic sexual fantasy…or else. Everyone has different opinions on pronoun usage, have a right to free speech, and the ability to call others what they want. This takes away that free speech and people are not allowed to opt-out of partaking in somebody's fetish.

It is a form of boundary violation to force a woman to participate in a man's sexual fetish without her knowledge or consent. Nobody has the "civil right" to coerce women into satisfying a man's sexual fetish. And this is being forced upon the public under the guise of "inclusion, tolerance, and acceptance."

No, thank you.

How many autogynephilic men are using the label of "transgender" to breastfeed their newborn babies while simultaneously receiving sexual pleasure from their paraphilia?

The act of breastfeeding is natural for a mother and her baby.

It is something that should be understood and protected in all circumstances. A mother sustains life, single handedly through a biological process only a woman possesses. A baby is fine tuned to instinctually cling to their biological mother for their protection and nutritional needs. Fathers do not and should not breastfeed - and a man can never be a mother.

Sacrificing babies in the name of “gender affirming care” in order to indulge a sick delusion should never be normalized.
