They do put me right to sleep just like I'm still a baby myself. They also have a hypnotic effect on most men, and when they are in inordinate proportion to waist size they seem to have their own type of gravity that attracts eyeballs and turns heads involuntarily. When they are accentuated by low cut v-necks, or tight-fitting sweaters, they also make women instantly interesting, intelligent, and well-qualified for most career positions.

Maybe they do have magical powers?

I also nurse in church, and while I make an effort to cover up my fiesty baby always seems to have other plans. The bible does call us to not cause our brethren to stumble, but there comes a point in time when people surely need to take responsibilty for their own issues with sexualization and self control.

Why not take it to the bathroom? Next time I hope the pastor whips his scrotum out.

Ugh what kind of person would ask someone to leave for having a disability? I would be enraged if I saw that happen.



Oh you would be shocked at what people did (and said) before the Disability Act told them they couldn't. Isn't it pathetic that it took a law.

Not only my mom - - but us 3 minor children. And it happened more then once. Also refusal to even enter a business for insurance reasons and other bogus stuff.

Being in a church sitting in a pew pulling
your breast out while a sermon was going
is pretty distasteful. She could of excused herself
to the rest room, or somewhere else she could be
comfortable. I believe this was done on purpose
to push the boundaries, maybe being able
to sue to get some money off this whole thing.


So following your logic I can only assume you eat your dinners in the bathroom...

For the women saying breastfeeding is an excuse to expose breasts in public, would you expose your breasts in public if you were NOT breastfeeding? My guess is probably not.

I have nothing against breastfeeding. It is natural and healthier than feeding with formula. BUT, go do it somewhere private. Most churches have a nursery room for this exact situation, or if a baby is crying in general. What's so hard about excusing yourself from the service?

well i am shocked by the posters that are giving negative views on this subject.
america has the largest porn industry in the world but most of you are offended by a breast feeding mother

go to any european beach and you will see topless women of all ages and no one is offended by it .

a lot of you that are making disapproving comments profess to being christians believing in god .
well if that is so why do you think that the human body is so repulsive that it must be covered up at all times?
after all isn't the human body the creation of your revered god

i can only imagen what god would think of his "followers" after this,

I cant believe it's still going on as a debate,

The reason one fella mentioned that he feels "edgy" is becuase he doesnt know how to act in that situation and the more he feels edgy the more he feels people are looking at him. Do you not think mum feels edgy when she relises that she will have to feed the baby in public?, Do you think she has no respect for anybody else?

When we go to the doctors and have to drop our trousers male/female we feel "edgy" but thats becuase it's a stranger.

But according to alot of people in here if you decide to breastfeed you child the most normal and natural way mankind can then that means mum loses her rights aswell?, Now i see no women taking advantage of this situation at all and of all places that a women should be able to breastfeed without a concern for lash back it's in church.

So apparently mum should always find a stock room or a toilet to hold up as she feeds, Now if this was a problem then why isnt there cubicals for feeding?, Mums who feed generally feed there children via breast do tend to use a blanket or pull the top down as much as possible, But it's going to be difficult.

It IS only the fault of over sexing the human body in the first place as to why its such a taboo.

Why dont you lot try taking a step back and become more of a down to earth person?, Obvously you've changed somewere.

I.E

Your walking through shopping complex and decide your hungry so you make your way over to the food court, You get there and que up for you over priced,greasy burger ect. You then proceed to find a table and sit down, While eating your food you notice at the back of the court a lady sitting quietly minding her own buisness breast feeding her child, Her nipple is a mouth so you cant see it, Her arola if big enough maybe visable but only if you look, The rest is what you see when a girl walks past bulging out her top, (does this make you feel "edgy" btw)
The mother is snacking on some lunch aswell, Her partner maybe be a bit weary of man staring at her breast, Her children growing up without a problem and the mind of a innocent human.

Meanwhile your sat there thinking how discusting is that? How should i feel? ugh i dont agree it's wrong, OMG get a room lady!..... IS that a normal reaction or a over dramatised situation? Who caused the upset? And i suppose you would wish to approach and ask HER TO STOP FEEDING A BABY to find a smelly corner and restart feeding?

mean while when you have a child and you pay £10/$16 for a formula man made and full of rubbish every week when you parnters breast's which you dangled of while making the child are made for this time and full of milk for your children you will change your mind. But then again you might not want her to incase other men see her tit!

Why should a woman be forced to remove herself from the main congregation for feeding a baby? Its not disturbing anything.

But why should she have to step outside to feed a baby? Because someone else feels uncomfortable?

Before the Disability Act - - my disabled mom was asked to leave restaurants (even during her meal) - - because someone else felt uncomfortable viewing a person with a disability.

I say - - if someone in the church felt uncomfortable with a baby being fed - - they should leave.



I too am disabled and have been for almost 20 years.......severely disabled to boot, I don't and never have played that card for any reason whatsoever and I believe I am better off for doing just that.

Please take no offense in regards to your Mom as I can relate and see where you are coming from there.

If I could have a dollar for every time I was entitled to the discrimination card because of whatever I would be very well off indeed.

Back to the topic now here, yes it is natural but yes it bothers a lot of people......simple answer is don't do it in public unless absolutely necessary....
Why is this so hard not to do?

Great thread by the way and if I did not mention it earlier S&F for the OP

Regards, Iwinder

It is weird to me that boobs are sexualized in this situation. Its kind of creepy to me actually.

Above poster I am sadly sober. Just cant type on this Nook very well. I regret nothing.


No problem, your spelling in a couple of posts tonight and your phrase of "boobies feel like sand bags"
led me to believe you were having a good time as these two posts really went against the grain as far as your usual posts go.

With that said I apologize for my comment and not being very tech here just what is a Nook?

Whatever it is I don't want one because they do not spell too good.:-)

Huge difference between being disabled in the 50s in regards to social acceptance and no laws against discrimination of the disabled - - - - - from the last 20 years. The Americans with Disabilities Act was past 22 years ago.

NO - - my mom NEVER used her disability. NEVER. We had to force her into getting a handicap parking sticker - - because she didn't want special privilege.

I was the young impressionable child who remembers and was affected.

Where do you vote? Is your voting location in a state building up major flights of stairs? Are you told its your problem to get up the stairs?

This relates because of being asked to leave - - not because you are doing anything wrong - - but because it disturbs someone else.

No doubt there is a huge difference between now and the 50's no argument there at all and I must say it must have been tough.

I am sure that watching your mother being disabled had a affect on you and only you can relate to that one, I am sure I would be having guilt trips left and right if we had kids.


I am actually in Canada and my disability does involve stairs but also much more which I choose not to go into because it does not factor in to your thread in my opinion.

I can't do anything about my problems and to the best of my knowledge I have never upset anyone (at least that I know of).

But lets just say that I had a bladder control problem (which I do not) but if I did and had to void my bladder into a cup or whatever I can see that offending people, which it would indeed especially in church or say a food court in the mall.


If I know that the chances are that my "Natural function to pee" are going to offend even one person then the logical thing to do is to do it in private..

It is Natural to pee, defecate,vomit, ejaculate, spit, fart, etc..............All natural occurrences and should not be anything to be ashamed of, but our inner senses tell us not to do this with an audience.

And for good reason I think.......It is not terribly hard to just close a door and then do your stuff.

I am really enjoying this thread so please don't think of me as being all negative.

I do not see the comparison.

Adults can handle bladder issues with proper pre-protection.

Babies eat when they are hungry. I don't see the church arranging their sermons around the babies schedule.

Because hopefully, you won't start screaming and crying in the middle of the church because you're hungry. That is why the baby should be able to eat. I'd rather a mom breast feed her baby right in the middle of the church, then listen to a screaming baby right in the middle of the church.

Now, if you do start screaming and crying when your hungry...then thats a whole other problem.

I agree with your above statement, however I did notice that you just picked one of many of the examples I said.
All it takes is to shut a door and do your thing, if I were doing anything that bothered one person in any room be it church, the mall, our home, or city hall........I would certainly not do it with the attitude that it is my right to do what is natural when inside I know I am disturbing people.


Basically it is manners versus a me over them attitude.
Seems to me that it is a righteous attitude and that needs to go.......Kids these days have the same kind of mood as well...."Nobody said I can't so therefore I can"

Good comparison. A woman breast feeding, and a priest whipping out his scrotum. I'm sure you are grown up to know the difference. I could make a gross comment...but I will follow the rules here at ATS.
