I dont know if Idiocy is a word but it fits so I am going to use it! I was reading an article this morning on AOL about the new BabyTalk magazine cover. Apparently lots of people are Outraged because they have a picture of a baby nursing at her mothers breast. (click here for the article) Its obviously NOT Xrated but just a picture of a nursing baby. Its funny to hear peoples responses because people are talking about how they shredded it when they received it and how this is Filth! LMAO!!! OK thats just hysterical. Are people REALLY that ignorant???? The article itself leaned towards supporting breasfeeding but reading the reactions and comments of people just made my blood boil! I cant tell you how I would LOVE to get stuck in a room with one of these ladies and talk to her! We put Nudityy and Crap all over TV but people are offended when they see a mother nourishing her baby? HUH? OK so THEN, I decide to read some of the things people have posted and the First one I read says this.......
"FIRST OF ALL SHAME ON ALL OF YOU DISGUSTING PEOPLE SAYING THAT IT IS OKAY TO BREAT FEED.HOW DARE YOU?IT IS WRONG THAT IS WHY WE HAVE BABY FORMULA AT STORES.IT IS DISGUTING TO SEE THE ANIMALISTIC THINGS THAT WE DO HERE IN THE UNITED STATES.AS AN AMERICAN AND A WOMAN,MOTHER,TEACHER I BELIEVE THAT THE RITUAL OF BREAT FEEDING HAS BEEN REPLACED BY WHAT IS NOW TRADITIONAL BABY FEEDING (BOTTLE).I ALSO HAVE A BIG ISSUE WITH CHILDREN BEING DIAPER CHANGED IN FRONT OF ME.NEITHER I NOR MY KIDS WANT TO SEE A CHILD WITH FECES ALL OVER HIM BEING CHANGED BY A MOTHER FIDDLING WITH A CLEANING PAD AROUND HIS PENIS.THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!"
IS this woman Serious?????????? Thats HYSTERICAL!!!!! I'm serious, I couldnt stop laughing!! Of course part of me was appauled but I think its the most idiotic thing I have read....um....ever maybe!
I REALLY dont understand the argument for people who think women shouldnt nurse their babies (in public or at all). I understand people may not want to see a boob flaling (how do you spell that?) around but I have Never seen a woman nurse in public without trying to be as modest as possible. Obviously you have your exceptions as you do with everything in life but overall most woman arent going to flash their breasts for everone to see! I could go on for a VERY long tome about the reasons I agree with Nursing but I figured I would see if any of you had ever heard ANY arguments against it that made any sense or if any of you have any personal issues with it.
OK, thanks for taking part in my rant!! Fire away!
