Trevor MacDonald is a Transgender father who has decided breastfeed his child. Recently he has been making headlines because of his letter that was denied to become a La Leche League leader. The 18 year old policy states that a leader must be a mother who breastfeeds rather than a father. The question is whether LLLC should change its policies after years to accommodate todays changing society and the families in it.
"Since an LLLC leader is a mother who breastfed a baby, a man cannot become an LLLC leader."
Born a woman, he has been taking hormone treatments and has had chest surgery to make him more masculine in appearance 4 years ago. When deciding to birth a child he stopped treatments completely. Trevor writes a blog called The Milk Junkies and is an active member of the transgender community. What's interesting is that he gives credit to LLLC for assistance in helping him nurse his child when he had some complications.
What do you think? Should a transgender person have the same opportunity to nurse his/her child in public and become a LLLC leader, or is Trevor MacDonald taking this issue to far?
