He's a Breast Man

Congrats to Matt Daigle, of Sioux Falls! He just won Mothering magazine's contest for an international breastfeeding symbol. While I was torn between the second and third choices in the finalist round, Daigle's symbol is similar to quite a few international symbols that I'm surprised someone else didn't draw it/think of it earlier. As it is, Daigle gets credit for it, although he's turned over all rights and has placed it in the public domain.

For an all-too-brief interview and a look at the winning design, go here. It's great that we have deaf people from all walks of life not only endeavoring to achieve equality with their hearing peers, but also achieving success and showcasing the fact that deafness is not everything, but just an aspect.
