Kiwi breastfeeding censorship

A World Breastfeeding Week promotional poster was nixed by New Zealand's health ministry who were concerned people might find it too controversial.

The image invites people to consider whether it would be easier to breastfeed at work if men had to do it.

The health ministry's reservation strikes me to be sadly ironic as it expresses the exact prejudice the promotional poster was meant to illustrate.
