Breastfeeding in public is not one of selfish display, but one of common sense as a mother cannot stay holed up at home for the entire 6 months or so of the activity.


Pump it!

Bottle It!


I agree, there's no need to breastfeed your child in public. It's nasty. Mothers who want to display a saggy ol' boob feeding a baby on Facebook are definitely just looking for attention.

To those saying it's beautiful and natural: It may be natural , but it's not beautiful. If you want beautiful and natural convert to paganism and move out into the woods. There you can live with your fellow animals in bliss, and no one will disturb your viewing of a lactating breast. /gag

Breastfeeding is not Pagan, contrary to your lack of knowledge on the subject. Incidentally, you and your fellow Darwinians are responsible for the "we are all just animals" philosophy of life.


As I have said, one can cover the breast with a cloth and it doesn't expose too much, and women usually just cover up the whole baby and breast anyway. You may have even encountered a women with a cloth over her shoulder and just thought baby was sleeping...

/whoosh!

You missed the sarcasm!

Thank you kindly for judging me to be a Darwinian though, so classy. I would prefer to stick to good old fashion values. Please re-read my post.

To be fair, I think intrepid was talking about it in a mature and serious way... not screaming and shouting like these other loons.

It was an honest response and I applaud that,

Having a crap is as natural as breast feeding but we don't do it in public, therefore, the argument that because it's natural it's okay in public is void. I don't mind it simply because to me it's not offensive, not because it's natural,, it's just a Mother feeding her baby and if anyone's too prudish to allow it then don't frigging look, do you think that Mother wants you looking at her anyway?


Thank you for your opinion and I respect your view and how it was expressed. Although I do not see how it's being prudish to think it's offensive. If the mother doesn't want people to look then IMO she should go somewhere private. That's all I'm saying.

Then that is your issue and you need to work on it.
It is you who has the problem as you are the one who feels uncomfortable, try and figure out why you feel this way and work on it


I don't know why it makes me uncomfortable. Why are some uncomfortable around spiders? Clowns? It just is. I don't think it's WRONG to BF in public, it makes me uncomfortable and I'm willing to say it as opposed to some that have to show how socially evolved they are. But please if you're going to do it, use a nursing blanket, that's what they are for.


Perhaps since we, as a society, have been brought up--taught and conditioned--that exposure (of any kind) in public is "wrong," when we see something, even natural, that goes against our very core conditioning, it makes us uncomfortable? Similar to intercourse, urinating, etc.

As i said in a previous post, most women are discrete about it; the woman in the article/picture is anything but, and would not be able to get away with that in most public places.

You're absolutely right man. Its funny to me that billboard are erected that have nearly nude men and women on them. Also, I would confidently estimate that at least 60% of our television shows are rife with soft porn (ambiguous sex scenes, skimpy clothing, sexual innuendo, etc. With all of these things rampant in our daily lives, how can people be offended by something as natural as breastfeeding?

If FB wants to be fair, then they can't show men shirtless either.


Men do not have private parts above the hip... educate yourself...


Aww, looky here...Looks like somebody has missed out on something.


Really... if you have nothing to contribute then leave... you are just being childish...

I don't think it's icky or anything. I love females, and the female form to include breasts!
That being said, I think breastfeeding in public (or on facebook) is not appropriate.

If you want to give your baby breastmilk, they make pumps and bottles for that. Sure, breastfeeding is natural - it's not disgusting - but do I want to see someone pop out their tit and start feeding right in front of me?

I just think that we should respect the rights and beliefs of others when we are in public. Using the bathroom is natural as well, but we have bathrooms for that. I believe breast feeding should be done in private - between mother and child.

Plus, who would want creepy perverts staring at you while you feed your child? I dunno...just doesn't make sense to me I guess. To each their own.

This has nothing to do with people dying around the world so don't even try to relate the too together


It's about sustaining a new life the way, your god - nature - the spaghetti monster - intended and, feeling able, proud and comfortable enough in their own skin to share that experience with their friends and family on FB.

Yes, you sound every bit as "evolved" as the minds that lead to the repression of the Middle Ages and the cultures that force women to wear burkas. If that's etiquette, keep it.

Does the word "breast" terrify you as much as the breast itself?

I agree completely. I know I'm certainly happier when boobs are around.

To all the female ATS members:

Please don't judge all men for the opinions of boys.

Real men know that you are the bearers of life and elevate you the Goddess pedestal you deserve.

Any male ATS member than scorns a woman for breast feeding are so indoctrinated and regressive that they've completely lost touch with who we are and what our species is.

For something so beautiful and natural to be uttered in same sentence as "disgusting" suggests to me that the elite are en route to success in leading us to believe that up is down and left is right.

Take it as a marker of a real man ladies. The heart of a true alpha male is warmed by the splendor of a mother breast feeding. It's a sign of life and the continuity of our species.

Sure, they're entitled to their opinion as am I mine.



"Goddess"?? ahahaha Don't make me laugh. I can see that your one of those guys that would kiss a womens arse just to get her attention

I'm gonna have to start masterbating or walk around naked in public. I've seen a woman breastfeed her child on a train. She had on one of those tops that you can't see any breast. As long as they cover up then I won't have a problem.

It's an agenda to destroy our culture. What is beautiful will be seen as perverse. What is perverse will be seen as beautiful. Some minds are just weaker and thereby more susceptible than others.

My tone was intended as a device to convey how uncouth I think it is. Look at the title friend 'Display their Breasts'

I find the word boob quite low brow actually.

And I am more highly evolved than you if you think its ok to flop out a boob at Macca's.

I like breasts just as much as the next guy, however I have no desire to goggle over a lactating breast. Maybe some dudes are into that sort of thing, I'm not. Not one bit. Just.... yuck.

Others have said it best by saying: please respect the culture and traditions of others, there is no need to impose militant breast feeding beliefs on others if they don't want it.

Any action that involves a substance or liquid being secreted out of a body part should be kept in private where it belongs. It's just good sense and decency, and again, respectful to the traditions and cultural beliefs of others.

That respect you mentioned works both ways (some cultures/beliefs might be offended by being shunned for this). This is a complete non issue to me as this is literally one of the last things I think we should be concerned about.

Well let us review our interaction, shall we?

My original post:

Arguing against it so vehemently just comes off as childish.

It's fine to disagree with it, and everyone has the right to their own POV, but in the case of several in this thread who are against public breastfeeding, their opinion seems to have come from a very immature place.

The fact that we need a thread for this.... is just silly.


I, personally felt that there was an abundance of flagrant immaturity in this thread and felt the need to voice my opinion, no one in particular was being targeted. In fact had you not swooped in, it probably would have been my only post on this subject.

You responded with:

What's so wrong with replying to what other people said about our comments? Is that not what these boards are for is to voice our personal opinion about social subjects and discuss them?

So it's okay for one side of the arrangement to voice their belief but not the other?

Who is the immature one now?


I wasn't referring to anyone in particular when posting, but you took it personally, and the fact that you took it personally implies that you realize how immature you are being.

If you are aware that these boards are for voicing one's own opinion, then why would you attack me for mine?

You were the one who decided to take the low road and personally attack me, when I did no such thing to you. If you wanted to have a friendly debate about our difference in opinions, I would have welcomed it.... but that was never your intent, was it?

Nah, I'm not much for feeding trolls, so I think I'll leave it at that.

If you can't properly decipher a simple sentence or two, how the hell would I be able to help you now?

Cocky and clueless isn't a very appealing trait, you might want to work on that.

I'm done with this thread, goad someone else into your pointless rants.


This coming from someone who can't respond... Nice... Later... Since when is voicing my TRUE view trolling? Try looking up what a troll/rant is... Read and educate yourself on what grammar is as well before you try to call me out...


I can respond. I didn't want to because you are reveling in the conflict you have caused, as opposed to having a serious discussion about the topic at hand... which makes it Trolling!

I love that once again you cannot muster up a decent argument, and resort to personal attacks instead.

BTW you're grammar has not been picture perfect either.... I'm posting on a forum site... loose grammar happens.

Why don't you try talking to people like.... well people, and have a real conversation. You're smug, superior little attitude will get you nowhere. I don't have any issue with you, hell I didn't even notice your existence before you decided to attack me.

You can scream all day about just wanting to voice your opinion, but that is all I did, and you were the aggressor, not I. I did absolutely nothing to you, and tried to walk away, but you need conflict, and I'm not even sure you know why, but I'm not going to be a part of it. So go ahead attack me some more... you're only showing your true colors, but either way, I choose not to interact with you further. Can you understand that?

Don't get me wrong, I love them boobies, but I'm with Facebook on this one.

Milk filled breasts are no fun to look at, big green veins running along the surface, all stretched out.

Leave the boob shots to Ratemyrack.com.


And far as it being natural, so is pooping, but I don't want to see pics of people doing that either.

There's nothing evolved about mental prudishness and inhibition when it comes to breast feeding. It's a marker of a boy yet to become a man. Maybe you should worry about making a leap as simple as that which ordinarily transpires during male adolescence before speaking in evolutionary terms. One is running before one can walk methinks.
