Breastfeeding apparently is whole boob out in the open and equal to peeing in public.
You know, I have NEVER seen a lady breastfeeding in public. At least not that I have EVER been able to tell, and believe me, I look... on purpose. Always have. Is it because I want to see boobies? Nope. It is because I hate to see a mom whip out a bottle or a can of formula. Back to my point though...I see ALL of these anti-boob folks protesting the sight of a nursing babe and their bosomed mommy and yet, in all my 35 years of life AND looking for a nursing mom I have NEVER seen one. So, I have to ask, where are all of these exhibitionist mom's with their boobs on display for all to see while they latch on their kids? I mean, how do these folks even know if they would be grossed out or offended or able to see the entire breast with nipple and all? I *KNOW* folks aren't sickened, outraged or offended by breast in general, so what makes having a small baby head in the way turn folks so much?
My other question is why compare breastfeeding to peeing in public? Urine is NOT food the last time I checked and if we really want to compare apples to oranges... Maybe we should ban eating in public at all because it makes me sick to watch some people perform oral sex of their food. Yeah, I compared eating food with oral sex, see? Because they both involve the mouth. Because that's that exact same thing and all right? Sure it is. Eating=Oral Sex and Breastfeeding In Public=Peeing In public. *Note the strong sarcastic tone*.
The point is, Breastfeeding is nourishing a child and you don't even see the breast when it's happening. So, stop flipping out about something that NEVER happens and stop equating things that aren't even quasi-related.
