Thought you loved this 'Walking Dead' actor before? Wait'll you see his pic with 2 nursing moms.

Daryl, er, Norman Reedus is the coolest. If you weren't convinced he is just the best before, surely there's no contest now.

Thought you loved this 'Walking Dead' actor before? Wait'll you see his pic with 2 nursing moms.

This guy, two moms, and their two babies just did their part to fix a crappy societal double standard that even Victoria's Secret engages in.

I'll show you in a minute. But at first, it just seems like a nice gesture a celebrity did for some mom-fans.


Free it! Love these ladies! Tonight's show is gonna be awesome!!!

Yay, #FreeTheNipple! What a cute photo opp, right?

Now, excuse me for a moment while I indulge in an utterly predictable fan-girl moment, and then I'll get back to the breastfeeding thing.

OHAITHERE, UNCLE DARYL!

WHAT'S THAT? YOU THINK BABIES SHOULD GET TO EAT WHEREVER THEY ARE, WHENEVER THEY'RE HUNGRY?

THAT'S WHY YOU'RE THE BEST, UNCLE DARYL.

But these GIFs of Daryl Dixon and a baby don't really have anything to do with the breastfeeding thing. There's just something so great about seeing men caring for infants without it being seen as an emasculating thing that I couldn't resist. Also, hi: DARYL. OK, back to the topic at hand.

BREASTFEEDING IN PUBLIC

Babies need to eat, yo. And if you wouldn't want to eat YOUR lunch while being smothered and trapped under a blanket, or cramped into a bathroom stall, then let's all have some empathy for those nursing mamas and let them feed their babes in peace.

Because if we don't cheer on nursing moms and give them the space to do their thing, this happens:

Would society be a little more tolerant of public breastfeeding if a bunch of people saw this? SHARE, my mammary-supporting friends! Let's find out!

A group of beachgoers in Mexico proved that when people join together and stand up for justice, you can triumph in even the direst of circumstances.

Municipal police in Tulum, Quintana Roo got received a tip that there were men allegedly committing "immoral acts" on the beach. So the officers, armed with AR-15 rifles, picked up two Canadian men.

"The officers approached a group of young foreigners," local politician Maritza Escalante Morales recounted in her video. "After about 20 minutes passed, a patrol car arrived and proceeded to arrest them with handcuffs."

After years of service as a military nurse in the naval Marine Corps, Los Angeles, California-resident Rhonda Jackson became one of the 37,000 retired veterans in the U.S. who are currently experiencing homelessness — roughly eight percent of the entire homeless population.

"I was living in a one-bedroom apartment with no heat for two years," Jackson said. "The Department of Veterans Affairs was doing everything they could to help but I was not in a good situation."

One day in 2019, Jackson felt a sudden sense of hope for a better living arrangement when she caught wind of the ongoing construction of Veteran's Village in Carson, California — a 51-unit affordable housing development with one, two and three-bedroom apartments and supportive services to residents through a partnership with U.S.VETS.

Her feelings of hope quickly blossomed into a vision for her future when she learned that Veteran's Village was taking applications for residents to move in later that year after construction was complete.

"I was entered into a lottery and I just said to myself, 'Okay, this is going to work out,'" Jackson said. "The next thing I knew, I had won the lottery — in more ways than one."

Most people imagine depression equals “really sad,” and unless you’ve experienced depression yourself, you might not know it goes so much deeper than that. Depression expresses itself in many different ways, some more obvious than others. While some people have a hard time getting out of bed, others might get to work just fine — it’s different for everyone.

The 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) kicked off in Orlando, Florida on Friday. It's three days of panels and speakers with former President Donald Trump delivering the keynote speech on Sunday night.

It's believed that during the speech Trump will declare himself the Republican frontrunner for the 2024 nomination.

So far, the event has made headlines for a speech by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas who tried his hand at stand-up comedy. "I've got to say, Orlando is awesome," Cruz told the cheering crowd. "It's not as nice as Cancun. But it's nice."
