    my aunt breast-fed my cousin until he was 5.

    at the time we thought it was strange, and laughed at how close their relationship was and how "soft" mikey was... but once he turned 15 he grew to be 6'3", has a low voice, and does very well with the ladies.

    it's his brother that we think is gay.

    so i doubt it has any effect on sexuality. i think it aides confidence. for sure. i will breast feed that long if it does.

    My brother was 5, too, I think. He's 34 now-- a normal, healthy adult guy with a normal, healthy wife and two normal, healthy kids. It's beyond my comfort zone, personally, but I don't think it's automatically a sign of or cause of psychological disorder. 8 or 9 is so beyond any arguable "natural" age of weaning for human children that I think it probably does signal some kind of issue either with the mother or the child, or both.

    That sounds about right. My cousin, who is 15 now, is one seriously fucked up individual. I hate to say this, but I wouldn't be surprised if he grew up to be a serial rapist or one of those serial killers who chops up women and eats them in order to experience a sense of 'closeness.'

    By the way, my cousin is/was SUPER sheltered, so I blame my aunt for most of his bizarre behavior. She's the one who encouraged the continued breastfeeding; as far as I know, he didn't know any differently.

    Lactation is one of those use it or lose it things AFAIK.
    Edit: For humans at least.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Yep. It's there as long as you're using it. Supply and demand.

    Back in the pre-formula days there were wetnurses who had been lactating and feeding armies of children throughout their childbearing years. Some continued to produce milk well after menopause.

    Incidentally, this is one reason I would not be in favor of returning to wetnursing as a fallback position when a mother can't or doesn't want to nurse the baby herself. It reduces women to a commodity on the level of dairy cows, and guess which socioeconomic strata will be forced to use their boobies to make money.

    There is a necessary economy in our testing procedures before we take action, and our physical limitations prevent, even the most skilled, from performing all the necessary checks to avoid error: ultimately infinite.

    If there is a ethical principle, similar to what you describe, it would need to take into account our hypothetical driver. The amendment I envisage would be that if future behaviour is amendable by punishment, then punishment is the morally right; if future behaviour is not amendable, then no punishment is the morally wrong.

    This neatly captures criminal and irresponsible behaviour in its net, but does not hold our hypothetical driver responsible for his human constraints, which nobody can overcome.

    This neatly aligns with our intuitions that in circumstances where punishment is futile, punishment should not be sought. For example, we may lock up the insane, but they are not punished for bad behaviour, precisely because we know such corrective punishment would never correct anything; likewise, we do not punish snakes for acting snakish or spiders for acting spiderlike, because we know that's all they can ever act like, no amount of punishment will change that.
    you need to learn to be more concise.
    Are you seriously suggesting that the law should accommodate ignorant vegans?

    Intent absolutely matters to the law. Intent is the difference between murder and manslaughter, and malice the difference between manslaughter and reckless endangerment.

    It's not just action one must prove in order to be guilty of a degree of murder, but that those actions pointed to indifference or planning or malice on the part of the person comitting them. Criminal intent, and the proving thereof, is absolutely not judicial activism.
    Let's do this thing.
