Here’s why giant, inflatable boobs are popping up all over England.

One of the easiest ways to remove the stigma surrounding social taboos is through visibility.

American’s opinions of gay people changed rapidly after celebrities started coming out of the closet and TV shows and movies started began featuring more gay characters.

Elvie, the inventor of the world’s first silent, wearable breast pump, is hoping that by making breasts more visible, it can help end the stigma surrounding breastfeeding and pumping in public.


To do so, Elvie placed five gargantuan breasts of all shapes, sizes, and colors around London on Mother’s Day, March 31, and encouraged people to post photos of them on social media under #FreeTheFeed.

“It’s an invitation to everyone to stand with all those women that have felt shamed or confined when breastfeeding or pumping,” Tania Boler, CEO of Elvie, told the Shropshire Star of the initiative. “We know the giant boobs will raise a few eyebrows, but we want to make sure no one overlooks the way this stigma has been used to repress women.”

Studies show that England has a long way to go to reduce the social stigma surrounding breastfeeding.

According to The Guardian, 60% of English women feel embarrassed about breastfeeding in public. While 20% believe that others don’t want to see them breastfeeding, and 10% who chose not to nurse their babies were “influenced by the worry of doing so outside the home.”

“Every woman has the right to decide how and where they feed their children without feeling guilty or embarrassed about their parenting choices,” Elvie said in a statement. “We want to empower women to feel safe and comfortable breastfeeding or pumping in public and encourage the British public to support them breastfeeding in public.”

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Back in 2017, when white supremacist Richard Spencer was socked in the face by someone wearing all black at Trump's inauguration, it launched an online debate, "Is it OK to punch a Nazi?"

The essential nature of the debate was whether it was acceptable for people to act violently towards someone with repugnant reviews, even if they were being peaceful. Some suggested people should confront them peacefully by engaging in a debate or at least make them feel uncomfortable being Nazi in public.

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
