Humans are mammals, both genders have mammary glands that may be able to function in an emergency.
Before I move on from body parts - transmales please remember that men are mammals too.
My lactation educator hat is on - in a lost at sea type setting a man let a crying baby nurse, likely for comfort, but it was an older baby strong enough and knowing how to suckle. The man produced milk over some time at sea, the baby survived, they were found in time.
Transmales please do not believe hypersexualized media that suggests breasts are only about attracting men. Breasts are for the survival of the next generation.
Anyone who gets breast implants may be causing dysfunction and inability to nurse a baby fully or at all.
Humans are mammals. Please remember that females nurture the next generation and both females and breasts are not just sex toys for men.
Within the transmale population there is a problem with excess weight - transmales uncomfortable about their chest and trying to hide it. News to know, there is a longer history of females and sex trauma survivor females who gain excess weight in order to reduce unwanted male attention. 😑 Sadly, even that doesn't work. Guys will still hit on an overweight woman but probably won't brag about it. No trophy or a smaller one maybe.
Society devalues people based on Ken and Barbie doll standards, or Disney prince and princesses and those images have in common is plenty of estrogen in the female's development - more of an hourglass ⌛️shape, curvier hips and breasts, and plenty of testosterone in the male's development - firm large jaw, tall. Symmetrical facial features suggest good genetics and a nice tan suggests good vitamin D levels with less risk for autoimmune disease occurring during a pregnancy.
“Good looks” are an indicator of good health and suggest fertility.
Behavioral patterns at an instinctual level are wordless and our rational mind tries to explain the unspoken feelings. Brown bottle beetles will try to mate with a brown glass bottle especially if it has little bumps on the base. Female brown bottle beetles are glossy brown with little bumps. After the groundbreaking research study was published, the beer company modified their bottle shape to be less alluring to Brown Bottle Bertles and it worked.
It is worth remembering that human males are attracted to the color red and the color may be stimulating and even healing at tines. Just keep in mind that marketing from many directions is trying to stimulate these feelings of attraction so that you will buy a product or maybe an idea. Transwomen and children are sexy…is that a message children need to hear? Or who is it directed at?
Who are transwomen competing with for attention or mates? Lesbians? That suggests the transwoman is heterosexual but likes to wear female attire. Talmud #8, not likely to be true gender dysphoria from prenatal hormones. Or gay and heterosexual men? That might be a gender dysphoric person or autogynophilia - feeling sexy by looking female.
Lust is about sexiness and visual attraction. Love is about trust and shared values more than physical attraction alone. The hypersexualized media had made it seem like all females should be super sexy and any male should be able to have a super sexy girlfriend no matter what he looks like. That is unfair to both sexes and to babies who just want to be fed and nurtured. Breasts are for babies. Don't be a Brown Bottle Beetle and fall for every red dress cleavage image online. More and more are fake anyway.
Never fear, the AI companion who cares is here, and she comes in many skin and hair color variations or kitten ear options - collect them all!
Endocrine disrupting chemicals and decades of low iodine and excess bromide and fluoride has led to more people having oddities instead of fairytale good looks of peak estrogen or testosterone at the right stages of their development.
Lactation crash course
Back to lactation - until a pregnancy is near completion and a newborn has suckled every few hours for a few days - the breasts are not fully developed into milk making mode. After that first pregnancy, than the milk and know-how return readily for next babies (who can have their own quirky feeding issues to get through). Puberty blockers in males may make the penis not grow, puberty blockers in females may make the mammary glands not fully develop. Some women naturally (no puberty blockers) may have both or one breast that is at an underdeveloped stage and will not be able to make milk well even with an infant suckling. The underdeveloped breast is likely to look smaller, more adolescent early development.
Hormones in transwomen that lead to their mammary glands developing more - I don’t know if milk would be achieved with suckling stimulation but it might.
For a woman with a premature baby who is too weak to suckle, a double electric pump and pumping around the clock every two hours replicates what a newborn would do and can establish a milk supply for the premature infant and a little supplemental fortifier nutrients might be mixed into the pumped milk.
Breast milk is high tech in a natural sense - it is modified for different stages of infant development. Newborn colostrum is lower in fluid, richer in fats and calories and has other stimulating growth factors. Regular newborn milk arrives with a painfully extended chest and a need for that baby to suckle. Hand expressing a little might be needed to soften the overfull breast enough for the baby to be able to latch on. Early milk is not as creamy rich as colostrum but it is more nutrient dense than milk being produced for an older baby. And milk for a toddler might be even thinner and maybe less sweet - naturally promoting weaning to other foods.
The fat content of the person’s diet will be directly reflected in the types of fats in the breast milk. Omega 3’s and good fats, or fake homogenized trans-fats and polyunsaturated oils, the ratio in the diet will be similar in the milk being produced. For some other nutrients, if the diet is kind of malnourished the body will compensate somewhat and take from the mother’s body stores - depleting her of trace minerals like calcium and magnesium.
A negative of modern life - toxins in the mother’s body are filtered by the placenta and the uterus has less than her average load. The breasts don’t filter it out though, instead almost seem to concentrate it so the baby is getting a bigger load than her average body load. That electric double pump, a lot of work, but might be a chemical detox strategy - induce milk production and pump and dump for a while before trying to get pregnant and then the baby may be exposed to less of the accumulated body burden of toxins that the mother had built up from her fetal to present life.
Oligofructosaccharides in breast milk would be indigestible for the human infant but essential fiber food for a healthy microbiome. Breast milk has it, which indicates that a healthy microbiome is part of a healthy human infant - we are symbionts and part of nurturing is taking care of the baby's gut microbes. Natural vaginally delivery has been found to be healthier as it is starting the infant off in life with microbes picked up from the mother's vaginal canal.
Formula is now being made with oligofructosaccharides. It seems to help babies on formula. We study nature to try to replicate it for those in need of help.
Man tries to replicate nature with incubated babies but it is never likely to be as successful as nature's design. The other concern about a move towards incubated babies is lack of a personal protector. I said males are protectors of the next generation but females will instinctually fight to the death to protect their kids.
Waiting for a Knight in Shining Armor to save the day takes away accountability for all of us doing our part to protect kids. Whether they are our biological kids or other people's, they are our future workers and our future caregivers and our future prisoners or violent offenders. How we help kids and families matters to us too.
In 1971 the Gold Standard was dropped and many things started to change with computers. Pursuing wealth has taken over popularity wise since then compared to developing a meaningful philosophy of life, helping others, raising a family, or becoming an authority in my field.
Money can't buy happiness or love but it can buy a collection of Brown Bottle Beetle AI chatbots, or shoes or surgeries, and support our corporatocracy.
