I believe they might be upset. They raised you and passed down their beliefs. I just don't believe that a woman who has breastfed would be embarrassed by seeing another woman doing the same.

I am one of the people who agrees that the infant is inappropriate in class. I still think you need to do a better job of choosing your audience. NOBODY here will agree that seeing breastfeeding in...

Homeschooling is legal in New York and the other 49 states. If parents really don't want their kids exposed to legal breastfeeding in public places, they should keep their kids out of public places.

You were not forcibly detained. A somewhat weak argument could be made that you were *coerced* into remaining in the lecture hall, but you were clearly not forced. I'm on your side that the baby...

Respectfully, I don't think we're completely on the same side, HashtagBB. I think women should breastfeed at their convenience and I did so myself for many years.

Actually, the law generally states that a woman may legally breastfeed wherever she and the child are legally able to be.

My child is fully vaxed: I believe in vaxing. I do not think the injury you described warrants vaxing.

But if I were you, I would get the tetanus vax. This is apparently the first (really?) of...
