Congress to Install Lactation Lounge at US Capitol

Some women do it in Starbucks. Others in cramped bathroom stalls. And soon, the women of the House will have their very own lounge for it. The chamber will soon boast a new "lactation lounge" where nursing moms can pump and breast-feed to their heart's delight, and all in a private facility matching the one that's been operating on the Senate side for years.

The new family-friendly House locale is on the fifth floor of the Cannon House Office Building, and HOH hears the setup is pretty swanky (although the phrase "swanky lactation lounge" sure makes HOH think of a fancy new cocktail bar along Pennsylvania Avenue). (Roll Call)

To be fair, the Lactation Lounge should be open to [i]everyone[/i], regardless of sexual orientation, real or perceived. Otherwise, it clearly discriminates against those who are unable to lactate.
