Milkman Discus Fish by humon Milkman Discus Fish by humon
I have given you lady-penis. Now it's time for man-breasts! :D

Males lactating is not that strange. Human males often go though hormonal changes when their partner is pregnant and in this period the man can train his body to produce milk. Not enough to keep the baby alive on his own, but enough to keep the baby happy until mother gets back.

There is a rare species of bats where the males are suspected of breastfeeding their young because they produce enough milk to do so, but so far no one has been able to get to their living areas to see if they do.

EDIT: Pfff! Of all the pictures in this series so far, this is the one people find most offensive and want to give a mature tag? :XD:

Men who complain about this are just to manly to think of something like this.

I always knew a man could produce milk and somewhat breastfeed. Hello they got nipples, which are milk ducts. They have mammary (spelt wrong?) Glands.

Its not scary. Kind of cool actually

In relation to the edit you added: It has to do with breast feeding, I don't know why people get weirded out by it. There was a women recently in America (where I live) who got the police called on her for breast feeding while in a Victoria's Secret lingerie store. (Basically can huge pictures of women with large breasts in only underwear, but heaven forbid a mother feeds her baby.)

Feeding a baby?  Sick.  Sexy half naked pictures of breasts?  That's perfect!  Basically American society.

Yep. There is also: have self esteem? You're vain, and need to know the world doesn't revolve around you? Don't have self esteem? What's wrong with you?

America is just a socially backwards nation.

America has a horrible society, where up is down and down is green (this is suppose to be confusing), and everyone looks at us (I'm American) as a "perfect nation", and the "American dream" as a life goal.

yep! although it's rare for it to reach sustainable levels, if you let a baby suckle enough, milk will eventually come. The first bits are a little sour though. Anyways, best to just let mom take care of it :)

If you give the males the same hormones that females produce when pregnant, say... through a shot, perhaps, then... yes, a male can brestfeed.

Actually a male sometimes does not even need hormones.

If a guy's nipples are simulated when his testerone levels lower when his part is pregnant. He can, infact, produce milk.

Actually, there have been cases of babies not only surviving, but even thriving while being breastfed by a male.

It is possible for man to produce milk for his children. Just google 'male breast feeding'. Male breast milk even has more protein than female milk.

That's not quite how it works. He'd have to train his breasts to produce milk, and if that was something he wanted to do I'd be fine with it. Wouldn't just stick the baby on his tits though if he hadn't trained. Baby would just end up getting upset if no milk came out. :XD:
