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.


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?

umm...the guy called me a teenage virgin whatever that meant. He gives he gets.

Yet another example of your astounding maturity.
(btw, I imagine it means exactly what he said
)

Breast feeding happens -- get over it.

Hell even Target stores publicly said it was fine in their stores recently.

Gets what? I'm still waiting for the burn.

You will give up using internet forums when you discover sex. I am hoping but not confident that it will be soon.

But you can't just pish anywhere you please. It's a waste product and it stinks. That's why we have toilets, so we can all live together in harmony and not stench.

Feeding a baby is entirely different and you know it.

Can't you see that breast-feeding is being compared to going to the toilet, or even porn. It's being put on a par with the seedier human habits. "Indecent exposure" Good grief!

I've NEVER seen a woman in public bare her breast. But I'm sure I've passed by loads of women quietly feeding their baby. Do you all have shares in powdered milk, I wonder?

You missed the entire point of my post, and didn't connect the dots at all.

You are simply proving my point. Thanks!

Yes, because don't you know that womens' breasts are solely for men to ogle in private?


Why do breasts only become offensive if there's a baby being fed by them? If you happen to see a woman breastfeeding in public--quick, look the other way.



News flash bud... IMO it's also offensive to see them up on a stage dancing for money... I love breast as much as the next man but I don't want to see a kid hanging off them when I'm trotting around town.

And I don't look the other way... In fact I might stop and take a picture to post on FB so I can hear all you freaks call me out there too... If you don't want a picture taken then go do that crap in private...

I'm personally more offended by people preaching about their religious views in public than I am by a mother feeding her child. That's not the topic however, and I'll stick to the matter at hand.

I'm of the opinion that it should be allowed, I don't see why not, there's absolutely nothing sexual about it. If people are offended by it, they could very easily hide that particular person from their profile, just as easily as the mother could make their profile private and/or have their photographs viewable by only those she wishes.

So the short of it, I don't see anything wrong with what those mothers are doing, but I also think they should at the very least have their profiles set to friends only. If one of her 'friends' find it offensive, hide the post!


So if you didn't see it it didn't happen? Okay so turn your head next time I take a leak in front of you...

Why wouldn't I turn my head if you, as you so eloquently put it, took a leak in front of me? Nobody is forcing anyone to look at anything. If you don't like it, don't look at it.

No, and I'm not a little being sucking on a nipple for food either...

And I suppose you never took your baby anywhere within walking distance of the home either? Take your crying kid home? Seriously? Personally I've never let any of my children wail for the want of attention or food. People can take their sensibilities and shove them where the sun doesn't shine.


Actually I took my kid all over the place, and he never left my side. You see they have these things called bottles now that amazingly hold the milk so I do not have to have my kid's mother whip out her breast to feed him
It's too bad other women don't feel bad about exposing themselves just because they are too lazy and inconsiderate to feed their kid with a bottle. I got news for you people... it's 2012 and not 1812... We invent things to make life easier so use them...

And if you want to come at me with "but the milk from mom is better for the kid" ... get a breast pump...


Oh yeah, those baby bottles. Sorry, I'd rather my baby's not chew on a latex tit with defrosted rewarmed milk from a bottle with questionable chemicals.
Sorry if you find that lazy and inconsiderate of me.

Btw I did have a breast pump...
But I gave the rest to my pet kid goat..

1st step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem...

I hope you cure your laziness soon... Good luck

What's the difference between a man shirtless and a woman shirtless? Why only offended by one?

M yphoto here is not my photo on facebook, care to explain what you mean? Or are you still just trolling your own thread for kicks because you have no sex?


You said you had photo's of yourself wearing no shirt on your fb profile didnt you?


I'm an australian male and also not ashamed of my physique - it's normal for me to have a few shirtless photos. Or would you prefer that males swim in tshirts so not to offend you?

Are you ashamed of your own titties as well?


Ok sexy. Settle down there. Im sure you look great "shirtless"


I am not a teenager,Im not a virgin and I dont have man boobs. Some are and do though. They might read that and feel bad. Unlike breastfeeding in public peoplesometimes cannot help being a vigin or growing man boobs.

Thanks for your concern but I do pretty good. I can send you some pics of how hot I am if you are interested. I also have this enigmatic,anti-hero protagonst thing happening. Chicks dont know what hit them. My target audience are students or university educated women from18-30.

And Im not offended by males swimming without shirts. I dont think its very good etiquette to walk around in public without a shirt though. Do you wear shoes?

So now we know what your problem is, you lack the capacity to understand the difference between the breast for nourishing purposes then for sexual purposes.

No wonder you are so bitter and confused.

I wouldn't want someone taking a picture of me for personal uses, period. And only pedophiles take pictures of babies that are not their own to post.

What rights, it's a private website.
Why don't they just start their own website where they all swap pictures of breastfeeding their babies? They're probably the only ones who care anyway.


Problem solved... TY

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

Ettiqette is relative to context, environment and local custom.

EDIT: Thank you for the compliment, I'm flattered. I have different taste in men though so best you stick with all those hot girls you have all that sex with.

There are two issues being discussed here.

First: Facebook has every right to dictate the terms and conditions of their site. If you don't like it don't use it.

Second: Women should be allowed to breastfeed their children anytime anywhere.


Was there a point to this comment? besides the obvious... stick to the OP...

Stop being such a massive arsehole.
For a start I actually wonder if anyone of reproductive age would use a name these days LiKe ThAt unless they just took a day off perving over teenagers in an underage chatroom.
But to regard anyone who chooses to nourish their children in a natural way and their advocates as freaks, then you seriously HAVE to be a'trolling, or need some serious therapy.
