Dearest daughter, please stop trying to stick your finger in your mouth why you’re nursing. I realize that you are currently cutting a bottom tooth but that finger & it’s nail hurts my areola & makes your latch turn to shit.

Okay. So this is how I see it. Yeah, you might be surprised when you’re on the train on your way home from work and to look to the left and see a boob out feeding a child. But all you need to do is turn your head if you’re offended. OR the alternative could be listening to a baby cry from hunger after a long 10 hour shift on a Monday and you still have 45 minutes left on the train. And there’s no way to stop the baby’s cry unless it’s fed.
So after a long day would you rather just have to look right to avoid seeing a strangers boob feeding get hungry baby or listen to a screaming baby for 45 minutes when you already have a headache and easily just want peace and quiet?

I have no problem with a woman, such as in the first photo, breastfeeding in public. Shes covered, minding her own business and not disturbing anyone. If your child is hungry and you breastfeed with a nursing cover, blanket, or scarf, I believe no one should have the right to bother you.

I do, however, have a problem with seeing people publicly breastfeed such as in the second photo. She makes no effort to cover her breasts, nor nipples. There is no respect for anyone in the surrounding area that, if they walk anywhere near, are forced to see her completely exposed breast and nipple, and if the child finishes eating and unlatches, shes just sitting there with her breast completely out.

Putting on a nursing cover or blanket is not difficult, expensive, or time consuming. It’s a simple gesture of respect for those around you, and if you put forth that respect you will recieve it back.

This week social media has been promoting breastfeeding, particularly public breastfeeding. I have had several conversations with Catholic men and women who believe that women should not breastfeed in public without being completely covered. The main issue was modesty, and the fact is love is truly the care for the condition of the souls of others. As men and women of God we believe our body to be precious, and respect our brothers and sisters in Christ so we do our best to dress modestly. This is what we believe, and when we do this we do so because we love our neighbor, and ourselves.

But then, there is breastfeeding. I’m going to say this once and for all. A man who is sexually attracted to a woman’s breast or cleavage, that is a normal sexual desire. A man who is sexually attracted to breastfeeding, does not have a “normal sexual desire”, in fact this is called a paraphilia which is a classified SEXUAL DISORDER. You as a breast feeding mother are not responsible of those who have a sexual and mental disorder to the attraction of a child nursing. This is the equivalent of not showing your feet because you fear “someone aroused by feet will be put in the way of sin.”

Arousal to cleavage is not equal to arousal to breastfeeding. Period. The accusation that women are causing men to sin by breastfeeding need to STOP. Women are doing their best to breastfeed their child with comfort and love, we have no intention but feeding our starving children that must be fed around the clock. We as mothers deserve respect for the beauty of breastfeeding as the ability to give life to a child after the child is born is a gift from God that should be embraced. To think that an infant needs to eat in a bathroom with or with a cover on it’s head because sexual deviants may become aroused is absolutely hurtful and disturbing.

I will remind everyone that one of the corporal works of mercy is “Feed the hungry”- and that includes infants.

To all the idiots who say “Why don’t you just put a cover over their head to breastfeed?” 

This. This is why. 

So fuck you. I’m not going to let my child starve because you’re too immature to handle seeing TEH EVAL NIPPLE for 2.3 seconds.

Wacktivist devil: Ban breastfeeding in public, because it promotes ‘gay pride’
August 19, 2014

A conservative activist in Ohio is attempting to ban female toplessness including breastfeeding, because it promotes “gay pride”.

Patrick Johnson, director of anti-abortion group Personhood Ohio, is urging for people to contact state lawmakers to call for a blanket ban on female nudity.

His church group, which frequently protests against strip clubs, was recently confronted with bad-ass counter-protesters in favor of the women’s right to choose what work they did.

He told ABC: “I think when we allow women to flaunt their sexuality to the public, flaunt their nudity to the public, it’s harmful to marriage.

“I am sick that women can legally bare their breasts to children and to married men against their will in Ohio.

“What they did was an offense to God, was an offense to the public morality, and the legislature should act to criminalize what they did.”

He added on Facebook: “The gay pride parade in Columbus is 500,000 strong – why? Because the women go topless. This is the only one where I’ve seen this level of nudity.

“[In] San Francisco, Chicago, Washington, D.C, I have never seen the kind of public lewdness I have seen in Columbus, Ohio.”

“Please call or Email your state senator and state reps to urge them to ban public nudity.

The Aiken Area Progressive blog warns: “This is a no-exceptions ban that if enacted, will drop the number of states to 49 in which breastfeeding is legal, and, if enacted, this definitely will violate numerous Constitutional amendments.”

An exemplary example of evil, internalized patriarchy. He actually thinks women’s breastfeeding is about assaulting him and other ‘innocent married men’.

Breastfeeding reactions

At birth
"You’re going to breastfeed, right? Aw, what a good mommy!"

At 6 weeks
“How awesome! Breastfeeding can be hard, but so good for baby!”

At 6 months
"Congratulations on making it so far! Has he started solids yet?"

At one year
"He’s still breastfeeding? Oh wow!"

At 18 months
"He’s probably about done, right?"

At two years
"Oh…really? Isn’t it weird? Are you ever going to wean him?"

How I imagine it will be if we make it to three years
"Avert your eyes children! There’s a freak breastfeeding her teenager over there!"

  • *breastfeeding in public*
  • *random woman looking at me in disgust*
  • Me:oh I'm sorry am I disturbing you by feeding my child?
  • Woman:I just don't see the need for you to expose your breast like that while some of us are trying to eat
  • Me:hmm I have a blanket if you like?
  • Woman:yes that would help
  • Me:here *passes blanket* cover your head with it you ignorant fool. My child is also trying to eat.
