“Transgendered Images of Breast Milk: Recovering the Voice of MarÌa Anna ¡gueda de San Ignacio”
Leaders of religious orders of men and women throughout church history have used the image of breast milk. This presentation will retrieve the specific contribution of MarÌa Ana Egueda de San Ignacio’s (1695-1756), a Mexican Dominican nun. Her development of this image set in the backdrop of Latin American Catholicism expands the canon of creative and prophetic perspectives emerging from Latina America.

Somehow I wonder if this is connected with this story.
Rehoboth Beach in Delaware isn’t a topless beach – but a few transgender men caused a stir by treating it like one.
Police say passers-by complained after the men removed their tops and revealed their surgically enhanced breasts over Memorial Day weekend. A lifeguard asked them to put their tops back on. The men initially refused, but covered up before police arrived.
Even if they hadn’t, though, Police Chief Keith Banks notes the men were doing nothing illegal. Since they have male genitalia, they can’t be charged with indecent exposure for showing their breasts. Banks says there’s no need for a specific law to address the issue.
