In case you missed my first article for Moms L.A then I invite you to read it today!
Bravo Time Magazine! You succeeded in causing an uproar about attachment parenting with your shocking cover of Jamie Lynne Grumet nursing her 3-year-old son, accompanied by your even more controversial headline, “Are You Mom Enough?” Yes you definitely managed to grab the attention of every media outlet there is.
However, while TV, radio, and Internet was blowing up over the Time Magazine article (more so, its cover), there was another story that emerged this past week, that also received some media attention, but did not explode to the degree that the attachment parenting issue did. Yet, it’s an issue, which I believe is even more crucial and controversial than that of a mother who has a parenting method in which some people may or may not agree with.
On Tuesday the New York State’s Court of Appeals ruled that simply looking at child pornography online does not constitute criminal possession or procurement of the images. In simpler terms, it is now NOT illegal to view child pornography online in the state of New York. Yes, of course, this did grab some media attention, but I did not see my Facebook and Twitter feed blow up with this headline to the degree that it did of the Time Magazine article. As a matter of fact, I don’t really recall anybody talking about this anywhere within my social media communities, and so now I find myself asking, did attachment parenting outshine child pornography? Doesn’t this recent current event deserve the same, if not even more outrage and attention than the Time Magazine article? I believe so. (READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE HERE AT MOMS L.A.)
