i'm a European living in the US, and sometimes i still get lost in questions of whether something is culturally appropriate to do or if it could be taken as "offensive".
here in California it is ridiculously hot right now and so i want to go swimming. i don't have a one-piece. in Europe i don't think anyone would mind, but seeing how many people are still offended at seeing breastfeeding mamas around here, i thought i'd better check with some real Americans on this one ;)
do you think it is culturally ok / not offensive to walk into a public pool (with children, most likely, too) being 6 1/2 months pregnant wearing a bikini? or do you think i should, i don't know, put on a tshirt or something to cover up the belly so as not to perhaps traumatize little children who may not know yet where babies come from?
this might sound like a silly question, but i've unintentionally offended people in the past.. so i wanted to see what you all think! thanks :)
