Depends a bit on the age of the drinker.

You shouldn't drink that stuff anyways, it's not in synch with human evolution. Cows have only been domesticated in the last 8000 years. Before that they were running around mad as lorries. The human digestive system hasn't got used to any dairy products yet.

Depends on where you are.

Nordic Folks are fully capable of getting along fine on it. 82% of Finns have lactase production into adulthood

You make a very good point. But damn that's funny 🤣

Same with meat as well! What's up with that???

My friend's family kept goats. The milk is delicious. They provided most of their milk for babies that were unable to drink cow milk.

BTW, don't drink raw (um-Pasteurized) milk. You can get very sick.

I was thinking about wet nursing and breast milk donation the other day (not in a weird way) but just the fact that so many people are against it. Especially with the formula shortage in the US, you'd think it'd be more accepted.

It gets...well it gets complicated. There's a dirty legacy of slavery and serfdom all tied up into it. And a fear that the US would immediately make it a carceral industry.

Speaking of milk... what does human milk taste like?

Kinda. Breast milk "banks" are a thing. With the formula shortage right now now they may even be a lifesaver for a lot of babies.

Although still not as controversial as cows drinking milk from humans!

TIL babies aren't human...

What me and my dog do in the privacy of the transgender bathroom is our business.

My baby boy does it all day every day.
