I gave it up when I was about 8 months old.

Mothers should be allowed to feed a child when it's hungry.
Ps Is this a USA cultural thing because it's no biggie in other countries?

Not my call. Not my body and not my baby.

I don't really care what you do. If you want to breastfeed your child in public by all means do you.

Absolutely. As long as you don't rip your shirt open and flail your boobs around (which NO breastfeeding mother actually does in the first place!), it's totally fine! The baby's gotta eat. I've never even seen a fully exposed breast when someone was breastfeeding anyway, other than the time my mom showed me when I was younger and she was breast feeding my younger sibling and she was explaining to me how it worked. It's totally natural and necessary.

I say no, our culture says nudity is dicks, vaginas, butts, and boobs. As it is illegal to be nude in public areas, you shouldn't show your breasts, even if it is to do something like breastfeeding.

You may say it's natural, but so is peeing and pooping. You should go to a private area, rather than a public one if you're going to breastfeed, just like you would to go poo/pee.


It's not equivalent to peeing or pooping at all. Would you like to eat in a restroom beside somebody dropping shit? Probably not.

If breasts aren't sexual may I touch them...or are they defined as sexual only when it's more suitable?



Make up your fucking mind, women.


A breasts function is to feed newborn children. They can be used as sexual objects, just like your hands. Doesn't mean hands are sexual objects all the time and in every setting. And no, you can't touch them just like I wouldn't appreciate you touching my shoulder.

There are a number of health concerns with peeing and pooping in public. Ever been to India, where people crap in the streets? Quite unsanitary, whereas Breastfeeding is far less harmful due to the lack of leftover "byproduct" that's not outright consume. Other than for the baby.

I didn't mean it as a sanitary thing. I meant as a "when you do things that require you to show your ____ (privates/butt/boobs)" thing.

Also, it is perfectly fine doing it in public as long as you don't show yourself (use some sort of covering), as that avoids the nudity issue.

I've asked an Indian person about that. Apparently the people crapping in the streets thing is bullshit. Can't say the same for other animals though.

Point still stands, pooping in the streets is unsanitary!

But it's more than public decency. Last time I checked no one had to clean up after a crap or a urination if I just so happened to do it in public.

Usually I am all for feminism, but I don't think you should breastfeed in public. Women are not allowed to show off their boobs in any other circumstances.

The worst thing is when they do it in restaurants. You are not allowed to brush or comb your hair in restaurants. Well, I'd rather see someone brushing their hair than see a woman with her tit lobbed out when I'm trying to eat

Just don't gawk at her breasts while she's feeding her hungry child. look away and your problem is solved?

This is one of those things where I really don't think I have a stake in, since I do not have children.

However, if I had children....I know I would feel more comfortable breastfeeding them in private.

Well......sometimes you can't really look away without making it obvious and like the previous poster said...I mean, do you really wanna see someone's titty in a restaurant?

I mean, if I see someone doing it, I'm not gonna be an arse about it because I don't know the circumstances...
