What? Chick who works for National Review praises federal DIAPER program
The actual fuck? She says all this stuff about “community” and “not using tax dollars” but praises this:
Lastly, the White House is working with diaper companies to help lower the cost of diapers overall (like removing expensive graphics) and enroll individuals & other non-profits in programs to help distribute bulk diapers at a discounted rate to women who may not be able to get them elsewhere. Because many poor families live in rural areas or don’t have access to the Internet, it can be hard for them to get diapers in bulk at a lower cost as it is for others. (…)
One thing that’s not mentioned in the initiative is the value of using cloth diapers, something my own mom used for my sister and I when we were babies. It can be costly to collect your initial stock of cloth diapers so I’d encourage you to donate to “Giving Diapers, Giving Hope,” a company that aims to provide free cloth diapers. Cloth diapers may not sound appealing but they are a good option if you can make it work.
Yeah, right. Cloth diapers. A step backwards for women. Is “if you can make it work” code for “if you can afford a nanny”?
