Recently I was poking around the internet and came across the When Nurture Calls campaign add and I just had this overwhelming disappointed feeling with society. Now, I realize this may in fact offend some people,and if it does offend you really ask yourself why? The bottom line here is that a mother who chooses to publicly breast feed should not be socially shamed and shunned to feed their baby in a public restroom! Why? So that people who find it offensive can feel better about themselves? Are you fucking kidding me!! Breast feeding is perfectly natural process and should be praised rather than condemned.
But why is it so offensive to people? Here is my personal thought to that question. Breast feeding is offensive because it exists in a misogynistic (feel free to look that word up) society obsessed with pornography to the point where it is generally believed that the female breasts should not be used for anything other than male pleasure. Any form or use outside of that narrow description is considered gross and ill mannered. Come on, breast feeding is not pornography!
Do you think public breast feeding is offensive, covered or not? Why do you think breast feeding is so uncomfortable for people? Would you breast feed your baby in a public restroom?
Join the movement and support public breast feeding so mothers can be mothers!
