    Breast feeding is banned in regions yet not porn or strip clubs. How do you reconcile this?

    You didn't give the contexts for these three things.
    Porn and strip clubs are behind closed doors, breast feeding should also be done that way.

    Even as an emergency, urinating in public, even along a roadside is a crime. It shouldn't be because it is an emergency, but breast feeding is not an emergency.

    I don't see how you can compare behind doors activities with ones that are done in public.

      Breastfeeding isn't an emergency? Clearly you don't have much experience with babies. They don't feed on schedule and when they're hungry, they're hungry. It's okay for you to piss in public when you're uncomfortable but a baby has to wait to eat?

    The only way to normalize breastfeeding in public is to keep doing it.  I wasn't aware that it was banned in any areas, but that would be a cause I'd be willing to get in some trouble for. 

    My daughter nursed 24/7 for months.  She was a high needs baby and it was the only thing that comforted her.  If I didn't nurse in public I would have been stuck indoors for four months straight or hauling a screaming baby around wherever I went.  Not exaggerating.  And I would bet my house that people would be complaining about me bringing my screaming baby out, too.  So the only option that would make people happy?  Shutting myself inside my house.  Anyone who thinks that a new mother being afraid to leave her house for fear of being judged is acceptable and preferable to catching a glance of a woman breastfeeding can go f*ck themselves, to be perfectly blunt.

    I fully believe that anyone who is disgusted or made uncomfortable by the sight of a woman breastfeeding has the emotional maturity of the baby she's feeding.

    Breastfeeding in private is never banned. Breastfeeding in public is sometimes banned.
