A Canadian columnist is in hot water after her story regarding her strange actions involving a baby at a party a few years ago was published.
Leah McLaren confessed in a Globe and Mail Column titled, 'The joy (and politics) of breastfeeding someone else's baby' that she tried to breastfeed Toronto MP Michael Chong's baby without consent from either parents while attending a party.
In the column, which has since been deleted, McLaren wrote that she felt an inexplicable connection with the child while she tried to calm him down from crying.
"Somehow, my pinky finger ended up in his mouth and I was astonished at strength of his sucking reflex," she wrote. '''C'mon lady,' said his eyes. And I suddenly knew what he wanted. And I of course wanted to give him what he wanted. The only problem was, I had no milk. But would it be so bad, I wondered, if I just tried it out – just for a minute – just to see what it felt like?" she added.
McLaren was interrupted by the baby's father, Chong, now-conservative leadership candidate, before she could finish unbuttoning her blouse. He uttered a few words before taking his son away and leaving the party with the rest of his family.
Uhh, did anyone grab a copy of this column before it was 404'd? pic.twitter.com/gRx6rAb0F7— ishmael n. daro 🍳 (@iD4RO) March 26, 2017
As you can already imagine, McLaren's actions didn't go over well with many people on the internet.
