So it started to bug me... Why can't women go topless in public?
Domesticated by who? Ourselves?
I will say, that after my first was born I became confused as to why breasts are so overly sexualized in western culture. Who decided they were to be used in sex anyway? I can think of far more erotic (to me) places I like my husband to kiss me, and those places don't have to be covered in public.
So it started to bug me... Why can't women go topless in public? It's because we have sexualized the breasts. Why are people uncomfortable to see someone breastfeeding a child over the age of 1? Because we see breasts as sex objects. It's stupid. Boobs make milk, which is exactly what they are supposed to do.
Breastfeeding can definitely shift your views on a lot of things... but in my case it mostly shifted my views on boobs.
Anyway... I don't think we are domesticated by anyone (except God). But we are indeed mammals.
First off, I am 100 percent for breastfeeding. Its not everyday that I see it. I saw it a few days ago, not the first time I saw something so natural, it was actually beautiful. I then realized that just like all other animals that nurse the young, we do as well and lol yes I already knew that too. It seems the only thing we can do that they cant is build things and drive some of those things, type on those things and rest in those things. So whats to separate us from them in thinking that we have a soul or eternal existence or that we are so special, the pinnacle of life on earth. Lots of people act like wild animals, some of us observe them as we are better in some way, I believe only our act is better. Point being, are we any different from other animals ? Besides they do not fight about where they came from and what color they were born, are we nothing more than domesticated animals ?
