|Ken, that was a very stereotypical anti-breastfeeding rant, full of the same old tired cliches that nursing mothers have had to tolerate again and again.|
"Pop it out"? Equating breastfeeding with urinating? Can't think of breasts of anything but sexual? Yawn. Heard it. The ignorance is obvious - you don't know ANY nursing mothers personally. Would you like to meet one? I'd be happy to educate you on the subject.
|Comparing breastfeeding a baby to urinating in public is absolutely ridiculous. The only think you can rationally compare it to is other ways of eating. If a baby can be bottle fed, a baby should be able to be breastfed. Why should a baby go hungry or be forced to eat under a blanket just because a couple of men can't stop themselves from staring at a breast? If you click on the link to my blog below you will see photos from the nurse in. None of us were going out of our way to be "discreet" or "modest," yet there is nary a boob in sight. You know what I think the real issue is? People like you are unable to differentiate the difference between breastfeeding and sex. A baby nursing at the breast is not dirty, nor is it something to be hidden, nor is it comparable to defacting, urinating, fornicating, or vomiting. It is comparable to eating. Period.|
