should women breast feed in public or go some where private? (Page 3)
Comrade_: I have no issues with a mother breastfeeding in public so long as she's covering up appropriately. And most do this
Bumpa: Whats the big problem if she doesn't cover up Comrade?
I often appear in public without a shirt, moobs on display. Women should have the same right I say!
Comrade_: Do they want to walk around topless? I'd like to think that your moobs are not in the same category as a woman's breasts haa. We do have restrictions as a society. Example as much as I'd want to go to work naked for the sake of not ironing my clothes, I'm not allowed to do this. Even in some public places I'm not allowed to go shirtless. Why? idk we just have one of those things in society I guess.
I'd not think anything much on a woman exposing her breast to feed her child but it might serve as a protection for her to cover it appropriately, I've seen some use a rag and lay it over.
Bumpa: Yes Comrade, I know several women who would like to be able to wander around topless. If this wasn't the case why are topless or nude beaches so popular?
I don't know why our society has decreed the human body is indecent. Perhaps one of the stupidest of so many stupid laws.
Quantum zero: Because society is turning cheap, shallow, and perverted? I surely hope is isnt!! I dont think its actually a case of SHOULD any women breastfeed their babies in public, but more it should be why should they have to. Weve ALL eaten in public! Does a baby deserve less?
And another point to Bumpa's post. If anyone stares at anyones body on a nude or topless place they would likely be stared down, and rightly so!!
liztmich: Totally 100% for breastfeeding in public People need to see this done in public often so they can get over their weird hang-ups! Breastfeeding is normal people! It's been the norm since the dawn of man! I breastfeed in public with a blanket over me, but my baby is so intent on getting the blanket off of her, especially since it's starting to get warm...
deacon7771: I also am 100% for breastfeeding in public being totally legal and accepted. Breastfeeding in no way could be "indecent" or "lewd" or anything bad. I seriously believe that the people who object to breastfeeding in public are themselves closeted sex perverts who are too easily aroused by the most mundane and un-sexual things. The people who object to breastfeeding in public should be castrated.... with a dull rusty knife! Babies should be HEALTHY, and the health benefits of natural breast milk are uncontested scientific fact, when a baby needs feeding the baby NEEDS feeding, delaying a feeding is NOT good. If some sex pervert is all in a hissy just because a woman is feeding her baby in public, then it is the PERVERT'S problem! Breastfeeding is entirely natural and not in any way "indecent," what IS indecent is the PERVERT who can't keep his (or her) mind on their own business while a woman breastfeeds her baby.
liztmich: Right deacon If breastfeeding in public puts people in a panic, then I want to see all these women cover up their cleavage and take down those Victoria Secret posters at the mall!
one_two_x_u: If someone was out it'd be pretty hard to find somewhere private, besides maybe some toilets. I personally would not want to eat in a public bathroom so I would not expect my or any other persons baby to have to. Just use a little towel or blanket to cover zee boobies, no one needs to whip them right out! As a (straight) female I'd stare if someone just had their boobs right out but if someone wants to then whatever. It's just boobs!
Bumpa: Of course it depends on whose feeding. If a woman got her boobs out for a man to suck on, I might have a problem with that.
deacon7771: OK, Bumpa, that case that you bring up, an adult man sucking on a woman's breast, well it might be a bit outside of what most people understand to be "breast feeding." MOST people, when they read or hear the word "breast feeding," think of the mother feeding her baby, not her boyfriend or husband. As for me, I would not be bothered by even the case you bring up, because I know how to "avert my gaze," and mind my own business, if other people engage in sexual acts around me, I do not care, I only become concerned if they somehow want to involve me. If a woman was topless in public and some other adult was sucking on her breasts, I would not call the cops, as long as it was consenting adults, and nobody was being forcibly raped or assaulted, I would mind my own business. It does not hurt me in any way if other people do this sort of thing, and it sure does not hurt me if a mother feeds her baby.
Bumpa: Fair enough Deacon. I'd prefer they didn't do it in my lounge though. Perhaps I'm just a prude.
Babies being fed in public though.... There shouldn't be any debate at all. Of course you feed a baby when its hungry, regardless of where you are.
sheabear18: I breast fed my son for 6 months. I did it in public without a second thought. Just put a baby blanket over your shoulder. I always wore a breast feeding bra and shirt. After your child is born and you plan on breast feeding any apprehension you thought you had are gone.You're child is hungry, feed your child. I do respect Moms who chose not to breast feed. It's there choice.
the real slim DEEPy: i thiuk that it is outrageous that a natural biological function like flatulation is societally relegated to privacy.
the real slim DEEPy: as far as breastfeeding goes, expsing the female NIPPLE is taboo, and the infant conceals the nilppe itself with its face- there is not such a great stigna against merely showing cleavage
Bumpa: The nipple is just another bit of skin on the human body, what's the difference between it and the skin on my nose?
sheabear18: If any woman gets confronted by someone complaining. Give them a quick shot in the eye
LOL. Sorry I just had to say it.
deacon7771: OMG! I just thought how funny it would be... As I walk by a mother nursing her baby, I ask her "Excuse me madam, but the coffee creamer is run dry and I hate to drink my coffee black, would you be so kind as to give me a squirt in this cup here?"
Bumpa: Deacon, that's more common than you'd think. I remember my ex father in law wondering why his cuppa tasted funny. He was mortified to find that the jug of milk in the fridge had come from his own daughter
deacon7771: That IS funny, but it would just be oh soooooo classic, you know, in a public place like a coffee shop or diner or something, to have a woman who was nursing her baby just squirt a shot into someone's cup... I would love to see that, watch the outraged and shocked expressions on all the prigs and prudes faces!
Bumpa: You're wicked! But yeah, that would be hilarious. If you see it please try to get it on video
