should women breast feed in public or go some where private? (Page 6)
Nicotina: Public breast feeding is a matter of child nutrition, beginning and end of story.
If it considered acceptable to "bottle feed" a child then it is acceptable to "breast feed" a child. The right of a child to receive adequate nutrition is of utmost importance.
apdad2002: I think breastfeeding is the most natural and healthy way to raise a child and moms should breastfeed their child as long as they possibility can
Nicotina: Breasts are there to nourish a child. Why would anyone need to be "discrete" about providing food for their child is beyond me.
Queenie The Poo: Because there are perverts, that's why. Whether we like it or not, there ARE creeps who stare. A light muslin wrap over the baby and your boob works.
Nicotina: Forget that BS, Queenie. I'm not about to feel obligated to cover my breasts. I don't think I would enjoy eating my lunch under a wrap, no reason a child ought to.
jimeeze1: Well spoken Nicotina....if someone freaks out over seeing a mammary gland then they need to seek mental help.....
Queenie The Poo: Lol, I don't feel obligated (not that I breastfeed, it's formula all the way for my bubba). I just don't feel comfortable with people looking at me. If you think perves aren't looking then you're delusional. Not everyone looks at a boob as 'just food'.
deacon7771: Isn't it weird? Really strange, the old adage "one man's trash is another man's treasure" or "one man's bacon is another man's poison" and all that, it really is true if you consider what men like and what women like. This thread is a perfect example, most women are outraged and furious to think of the perverts that try to "sneak a peak" at their breasts or any other part of their body, but the vast majority of men would be flattered to a vulgar extreme if any woman would even pretend to look at their body. Heck, there are THOUSANDS if not millions of men who get arrested every year for "indecent exposure" (I am NOT condoning that by the way), they WANT women to even pretend to be interested (HA HA! They can dream on, it's never going to happen!) Yet women are constantly pestered by a bunch of "enamored" or more accurately aroused wanna-bee "Romeos" who are always looking through windows, "peeping Toms" who risk getting arrested.... I honestly bet that if there were such a thing as a "peeping Thomasina" (a female "peeping tom" she would never be arrested, she could CHARGE a hefty fee for her "services" of boosting a man's ego! Come to think of it, I think I might just start a new discussion on this very subject since my post here is actually WAY off topic, sorry but I just had to offer this observation on the extreme difference in the attitude of the different genders.
jimeeze1: I have seen a dozen females feed in public including my wife....not once have I ever seen a breast during feeding...the last one I saw doing that sat directly across the table from me and covered the procedure and when she saw me looking her way just smiled and I returned the smile and I left the restaurant feeling privileged to having witnessed one of the most intimate relationships between a mother and her child....nothing sexual ever crossed my mind...its a beautiful thing indeed.....I guess you would have to be female to fully understand the beauty of this act....
Queenie The Poo: I AM female and I understand all of that .... I never said 'every' man is a pervert. I said there ARE perves around who will gawk, and I, personally, think that is yuck.
jimeeze1: Try and forget the pervs and do what is (natural) ....personally I would glare at them or ask them haven't they ever seen a breast before....its a shame that you have to hide this....I have been to other countries where they don't....and no one gawks....I guess if you have seen this enough it becomes natural and not something entertaining....whats sad is the child only knows its lunch time and whats a mom to do....don't let the pervs win...you do what is right for you!
