Jordan, her new baby and breastfeeding in OK magazine

Has anyone seen the interview with Jordan? I looked through a friend's copy quickly. I was not pleased with what I read about breastfeeding. The gist was "My breasts are for one person only. No one is feeding off me. And anyway, Junior had formula and he's ok". Fair enough, that's what she thinks, silly cow, but did the magazine have to print it?!! What a struggle it is in this country to promote a positive image of breastfeeding with this sort of rubbish appearing in the press. Having said that they were more interested in when she would next be having sex.....
Thoughts anyone?

She is a daft publicity hungry cow, IMHO.

What ... thoughts of when she will be having sex ????

MhamaiJane Thu 02-Aug-07 10:40:57

No thoughts but <groans>

tbh, pretty much what I expected. Not a very good image for breastfeeding at all.

crokky Thu 02-Aug-07 10:42:00

breasts are for one person only

yes dear...your baby

Not actually sure that her breasts would be up to much anyway.

Does anyone take her opinion seriously anyway? If it was someone who comes across as more sensible and intelligent such as, I don't know, a newsreader then it might be more of a concern.

Lots of dizzy young girls (and not so young) will take her seriously, unfortunately.

I think it's a shame that the positive messages about breastfeeding obviously haven't got through to her and printing her words will only perpetuate the weird attitudes that many people in the UK have towards breasts and breastfeeding.

that twerp kerry katona said much the same (although that her breasts were for her boyf o yuck), also in OK. hardly shining examples of womanhood are they, i would not expect much from either of them.

i love a good bit of trash and gossip but OK really is unreadable.

Just confirms the vacuuous stupidity of teh woman. Agree, that it's irresponsible of OK to publish it, in a way. But then, are the people who think Jordan is marvellous and a "good role model" (ha!)teh same people who are interested in breast feeding? Oh I don't know, am waffling. Anyway, good to have her stupidity confirmed. I can hear her saying it in that horrible nasal joyless monotone of hers

hercules1 Thu 02-Aug-07 10:50:52

Surely she's not responsible for being a role model for breastfeeding anyway. She is simply stating her opinion which she is entitled to do.

surprised her tits can actually produce milk after being cut open about a million times for her to look like a mobile airbag

Saturn74 Thu 02-Aug-07 10:53:05

This highlights the problem of assuming that someone who is famous is also going to be a good role model.

MarsLady Thu 02-Aug-07 10:55:03

I would imagine she had been told that it would be extremely difficult for her to breastfeed because of the amount of surgery she's had on her breasts. When breast enhancements and/or reductions happen milk ducts get damaged etc and so for some women breastfeeding will never happen.

Perhaps we should send comments in to OK!

callmeovercautious Thu 02-Aug-07 10:55:04

She is unlikely to be able to feed due to all the surgery. Perhaps she is feeling a bit bad and so trying to convince herself as much as anyone else.

Cloudhopper Thu 02-Aug-07 10:57:03

With the number of implants she has, it is unlikely she would be able to breastfeed, so maybe she is feeling defensive?

Agree that it is a totally ridiculous misconception of what breasts are for, but I suppose "her breasts are her fortune", and titillating men is far more of a priority than being a role model for breastfeeding.

The whole thing just makes me feel ill really.

Cloudhopper Thu 02-Aug-07 10:57:58

About a thousand crossed posts saying the same thing

Lolly68 Thu 02-Aug-07 11:04:39

I use to really like Jordan but the comments in this magazine have put me right off her completely. She is being very insensitive IMO.

bundle Thu 02-Aug-07 11:05:34

mars, she still could have said "I wish I could have breastfed" instead of "they're only for one person"

lljkk Thu 02-Aug-07 11:08:08

Well, I'm glad that my breasts are versatile enough to make lots of my loved ones happy. Neener, neener.

Marches off to feel sorry for poor Jordan that her chest is so limited in its usefulness and appeal....

Humphrey - you have hit the nail on the head, why do we expect slebs to be role models or expect them to think that they are??

The joys of living in a sleb obsessed society...sigh

mears Thu 02-Aug-07 11:10:33

This isn't unexpected though, and one thing about Jordan is she is honest. This is her honest opinion and unfortunately many women feel the same.

I don't think anyone would view her as a role model and be swayed by her thinking TBH. I doubt anyone takes her seriously most of the time.

It is a great demonstration of how the sexualisation of breasts stops them being used for what nature intended.

Worry not, Jordan's example will be used in the classroom for demonstrating this sad attitude so really she is helping the cause
