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.

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!

In America, one dumb mistake can hang over your head forever.

Nearly 30% of the American adult population — about 70 million people — have at least one criminal conviction that can prevent them from being treated equally when it comes to everything from job and housing opportunities to child custody.

Twenty million of these Americans have felony convictions that can destroy their chances of making a comfortable living and prevents them from voting out the lawmakers who imprisoned them.

Many of these convictions are drug-related and stem from the War on Drugs that began in the U.S. '80s. This war has unfairly targeted the minority community, especially African-Americans.

Climate change is happening because the earth is warming at an accelerated rate, a significant portion of that acceleration is due to human activity, and not taking measures to mitigate it will have disastrous consequences for life as we know it.

In other words: Earth is heating up, it's kinda our fault, and if we don't fix it, we're screwed.

This is the consensus of the vast majority of the world's scientists who study such things for a living. Case closed. End of story.

How do we know this to be true? Because pretty much every reputable scientific organization on the planet has examined and endorsed these conclusions. Thousands of climate studies have been done, and multiple peer-reviewed studies have been done on those studies, showing that somewhere between 84 and 97 percent of active climate science experts support these conclusions. In fact, the majority of those studies put the consensus well above 90%.

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.
