Recently, the upheavel of women breast feeding their babies, has hit an all time shocker with two women who posed in their army garb with shirts lifted and breast feeding their babies. Do you feel this is a disgrace to the uniform or simply another stink to advert our attention from what other issues that may be going on in quiet corners?
Breastfeeding is good for both babies and Moms. I'd like to see it become commonplace and uneventful, so yes I believe women should be able to openly breastfeed their babies. That is what breasts are for.
It's not a disgrace to anybody for a mother to breastfeed her babies.
The disgrace comes in when that beautiful natural event is portrayed in outrageous scenes/pix for the shock effect it will have, thereby furthering the agenda of the liberal activists----distraction, of course.
America is being propagandized horribly. It's a common tactic of the Left.
I agree with you Brenda, but the whole stink was about following military law. If you join the military, you have to abide by their rules. At least that's what they say. No posing in uniform to support a cause or advance a personal agenda.
Seems to me that breast feeding is universally accepted, so this should have no impact on law or reflection of the uniform.
Oh... like showing pictures of aborted fetuses and carrying 'God hates fags' signs. Gotcha! I hate when liberals do that...
Oh my lord! I do believe those are breasts! I am so shocked! Seriously the level of sexual repression is hilarious. Scandalized by breasts.
Women used to breastfeed all the time, with a small towel draped over their shoulders for modesty and privacy. What's wrong with that?
I don't have a problem with public breastfeed. That is, after all, what breasts are for.
And I think this is one of the few issues that has nothing to due with political left and right.
I dont see anything wrong with it. However, i would feel really weird and uncomfortable with my boobs hanging out in public. But thats just me. I think other women should be able to breastfeed as much as they want wherever they are.
I do remember when breast-feeding was so common one barely even noticed it was taking place.
People pay good money to go to the movies and see as much horror as they possibly can but breast-feeding is shocking-who is kidding who?
Breastfeeding is natural. There is no "cause" that it's in support of really. It is a proven fact breastfeeding is the best way to feed a baby. It's a fact. So to call it a cause would go to argue there is another valid option. There isn't. Mom's should be able to breastfeed no matter what they are wearing.
The "cause" of course is to stamp out evil - to keep America clean and pristine.
The dominant religion in the country has decreed that although a males chest is clean and acceptable a female chest is not - it is unclean, perverted, disgusting and (horror of horrors) sexual in nature. The female body must be covered at all times to prevent this filth that God created from entering our society. While females are strong and can withstand living with their disgusting baby feeding apparatus the male is weak and easily perverted - they cannot tolerate the sight or thought of a female chest without being harmed. It can actually lead to those "other issues that may be going on in quiet corners" referenced by the OP..
By doing so, of course, religion has been a major force in creating the sexuality and evil intrinsic in the female breast but that is immaterial. Souls are at stake, must be protected, and that is far more important than a baby (not old enough to provide coppers for the collection plate) getting good nutrition.
lol great point. They seem to forget that their god created those breast to feed the baby. Funny how so many Christians and other God believers are so turned off by the thought of breastfeeding, when not breastfeeding goes against their god's plan. I'm atheist but even I know Milk goes into those "things" when the baby is born for a reason! Funny how we seem to be the only species that not only relies on other animals breastmilk but also reject our own milk.
Oh, I don't think it is actually breastfeeding that turns off the believer; rather it is just that it must be done in absolute privacy so that other people must not realize that a woman has breasts - they must not think of those evil things.
Of course, they must not consider them as they are partially bared anyway and pushed up by specially designed clothing designed to accentuate them. A curious dichotomy, but who ever said religion was rational?
Very good point. The breast were not considered vulgar until the 1800s! Used to be a grave sin to show your legs, but respectible to push up those breast with the use or corsettes!
Sure. Nearly every part of the female body has been used in one culture or another to provide "sexiness". Necks, hair, eyes, feet, waist, lips - any body part that is somewhat different between the sexes will have that difference accentuated to attract a mate.
The current religious fad is to prohibit breasts (or at least nipples) but it has only really been around for a couple of hundred years - an eyeblink in terms of how long humanity has existed. Mores come and mores go - eventually it will change to something else.
The funny thing is that the religious leaders don't seem to realize just how much they are promoting such things. Hide something out of sight and it becomes desirable - the priests create the evil themselves by demanding that breasts be hidden.
Hey my wife did. I thought that was what breasts are for.
No, I do not think it is disgraceful. The issue is how others giving attitude to these women who breastfeed their babies. Everyone used to be a baby and need breastfeed. Baby cannot control their babies to eat. Second, babies are lovely to their parents. If they are hungry, they should eat. Babies have not yet developed a sense of control.
