I read this blog faithfully. There are many points she makes in this post that are very valid.
I will post an overview of the blog post and post a link to the actual post as well. its pretty long and I know not everyone wants to read the whole thing lol. these are a very short condensed version of the article.
Vidtim Mentality: They claim to have no control over how things happened with their breastfeeding relationahip. Look at everything outside of themselves as a reason for why bf did not work and they had to use formula.
Opaque Aggression: They are visibly receptive to suggestions but pros at passive resistance. They never seem to leave a forum of breastfeeders, they rather stay and enojy playing the offended formula feeder. They are good at playing the victim, and a minute later they are causing someone else to be a victim.
The ever popular WHite Knight: a ff plays the victim and someone comes to their rescue. often claiming to breastfeed, when in reality you can almost be sure they have used formula themselves.
they say so often "Stop making me feel guilty": Really, no one can make you feel anyway. WHy should discussions about breastfeeding be off limits. God forbid someone mention how perfect breastmilk is.
Denouncing BReastfeeding studies: no matter how well the study is conducted, they WILL find some kind of fault with it (I personally have never heard this)
Here is a chart thats pretty cute. its actually called the "Defensive FOrmula Feeder's Bingo"
* I think every formula feeder has said atleast one of these things once*
