Recently, the controversy of public breast feeding has been brought to light and debated again. Namely through a Target employee asking a woman to stop it, and a NASCAR driver calling breast feeding gross.
What the fuck is everyone’s issue with other people’s boobs?
Seriously, WHY is publicly feeding your child in a natural way a controversy? Breasts are there to feed babies! That’s their function!
Apparently there are people out there who don’t like to associate something they see as a sexual object with food for babies. Because like, ewww, a boob! That’s only for sexy time, why is it out here giving life to a child!?
“But Tegan, why don’t they just take it into a public restroom?”
Because would you eat your lunch in public restroom? I think it’s gross when people chew with their mouths open, but I don’t ask them to go eat in a toilet.
Also, breast feeding is natural, and not something that should be hidden away so we can all pretend it’s not happening. Chances are you were breastfed. There’s nothing gross about feeding a kid, and it’s not a breast feeding woman’s problem if you can only see her breasts as sexual objects.
There are large groups of society that condemn women who choose not to breast feed (a very normal and personal choice that shouldn’t be ridiculed) and yet, while we demand that they breast feed, we also demand that we don’t have to ever see or acknowledge it?
Also what’s with all these weirdos staring at women breast feeding their child? If you’re spending more than .5 seconds watching this, I am pretty sure you’re the one with the problem, not them.
