Do you think that women should breastfeed in public

This woman only yesterday was breast feeding her baby at the local pool and she was told to get out of where she was and told to go into a changeroom to feed her baby

I also feel that where she was she had her feet in the water of the pool and l feel she should have been a little further back just incase she slipped while getting up

But been told to get out of the pool area and go and hide herself is totally wrong

Do you beleive that woman hav ehte right to breast feed anywhere
I feel in this day and age a woman should be able to feed her child

I have seen alot of ladys doing this and have never been upset about it it is something that is natural not something to be told off about

Well you are right about that look at all the women who bare there boobs on tv film ext and wear clothes barring everything you never see men complaining about that but if a woman shows her boobs while breast feeding there is a big uproar all l can say is what is the difference

Well sometimes people do have a problem in a mum breast feeding her baby

You would think these days that it would be diffrent the woman l have been talking about was going to take a group of mum to the pool where she was treated badly and they were all going to breast feed there babys to see waht reaction they would get this time

half of the time when a woman breast feeds the boo is covered up by the baby and l have seen many mums in piblic places trying to feed a crying baby would they prefer a baby to be screaming these days

Mom's should be able to breastfeed in public. They always cover up with something anyway.

It's not like I've ever seen a mom ever just whip out a titty in plain view. The only Mom that would do that would just be trying to stir things up, because that's completely uncalled for.

On a certain level, I doubt any guy would have a problem.

I guess it all depends on what people are offended by...some go off like mothers are going to suddenly go topless all the time. Some think that it's going to be one of those "if you don't like it, look away" things, which never end (much less end well). Some even get mad at the hypothetical that women will do it and then demand privacy while doing it.

I personally don't care, the kid's hungry when they're hungry...and sometimes you can't go somewhere private.

I've posted an opinion the last time we discussed this. My opinion's changed since then. I'm in favor of it now.

I think that breast feeding needs to be incouraged rather than been looked down on a lot of women have problems and sometimes it is scary for first time,mums every mum l have seen has always covered her breast l had a 3mth prem baby and she had feeds every 3hrs and had to breast feed when having coffee in a cafe it is very hard when on demand feeding there are women who bare there breasts in revealing clothes or bikini do we say anything to them Do we demand them to cover up

I think that because women's breasts also serve a secondary sexual purpose, feeding their children that way should be done in private. There's no need to do it around others, especially perverted men who'd start drooling.

I'd be in favor of women keeping it around other women, but breastfeeding around men is practically asking for perverts to look your way. If you can't get to a private room, feed them in the car or a bathroom. We as people should be equally responsible for keeping each other's sexual desires in check.

Seems a baby being fed under a blanket revealing nothing more than a mothers shoulder at most, is still pretty private. With the way people dress these days I think perverts have a million other distractions. If they want to perv though, let 'em. Only makes them look like idiots.

I agree with you Preston

I have seen women breast feed in public and they dont like having to breast feed but well you have to if a baby is screaming

it is a natural things to do and something all woman should be able to do whether in public or private

A baby is better off being breast fed because they get the right vitimans and things and also bottle feeding is not as close as breast feeding your child

Moviefan and Twisted stat you have strange values and l bet you do not have children
Until you have you will not understand why when it comes to breast feed a baby will need it anywhere a mother is
Plus if l came across a bloke treating this thing as something sexual l would glare at him or tell him off if l felt he was embarassing a mum dong her thing

The individual is responsible for keeping sexual desires in check surely?

If a man can't possibly control himself because he's seen a bit of tit by way of a female breastfeeding her hungry infant then I think there's a bit of an issue there. I actually find your post pretty worrying.

And fuck feeding kids in bathrooms... Would you eat your dinner in a toilet cubicle? Didn't think so...

Very sad you think that breast feeding a baby is so bad Were you breast fed as a child and is this what your parents taught you to disrespect breast feeding mums Did you know l seen a mum breast feeding her baby in the libary and not one man objected with her doing this Alsoo BCV thankyou for posting it is good to have women in this thread and supporting women breast feeding and also Moviefan if you think this is a porn or sexual thing l wonder where your values came from to speak so negative about this sort of thing

Regardless of whatever culture a person is living in, I believe that public nudity is objectively wrong. The truth is that most men are sexually aroused by women's breasts, especially while bare. As such, I think that both genders should work together in keeping each other from falling into lust. If a man was walking around in a group of women with his shirt off, I'd say the same thing. The whole idea of "I'm not their keeper" is just an excuse to avoid responsibility.

As for whether I was breastfed, I don't remember. If so, I'm fairly sure my mother didn't do it in public.

I'm fine with breastfeeding in public. Maybe not all places, perhaps in areas that kids are around (schools and whatnot. And if someone says "well, some of those kids may have been breastfed, whats the difference?" Then you are wrong and are missing the point.)

As for perverts, that is just an idiotic thing to say. Most men are attracted to womens' breasts, if a woman breastfeeds in public, they have every right to look and are NOT being perverted about it. End of story.

So true. Men like breasts, especially when bare. Guilty as charged.

Genders working together to stay out of lust? Men should keep their shirts on? Sounds like you would rather live in a place where women still had to wear bloomers while they took a swim. Are you a fan of Burkas? Are you staunchly religious, or like 100 years old? These are the only two explanations.

Yeeeeaaaaah, if you're staring at a lump under a blanket, knowing that lump is a baby feeding on a tit, and that's what you want to concentrate on then you're a special kind of perv.

And on another note. Most new mothers I see aren't much in the looks department. I say that goes for most females in general. If every women in the world was naked, 80% of them wouldn't be getting any looks from me. I don't find them all attractive.

But that's exactly where they are most the time, so why would I assume you meant completely exposed? I've never seen in my entire life a women pull out a completely exposed breast and start feeding her kid in public.

Maybe you have. It's possible. Just such an anomaly that it's not worth worrying about.

Breast feeding convention....more like porn convention. I know it will be difficult for the men to avert their eyes, right? I mean, just look at these hotties.

So long as everything sexual is covered, what's wrong with that? The last thing I want to see while swimming is anyone's butt, breasts, or sex organs.

Not at all; they are an abusive extreme of what I'm talking about. I simply believe that people should not flaunt their sexuality in public. Leave it at your own home.

I am 32 years old, and it depends on what you mean by "staunchly religious". I am a follower of Jesus Christ, but I'm not some hypocritical fool like the Westboro Baptists who carry hateful signs at soldiers' funerals. You'll never see me bomb an abortion clinic, or say that God hates anyone. However, I do believe that certain things are objectively wrong, and God has set the standard.

So perverts are split by class now? What's up with that?

If a woman is out in public breastfeeding with the only cover of her breast being from her baby and a man looks, she has no right to complain and the man is not a pervert. If there is something covering her baby and her breast and men are looking at it in a sexual manner, then yes, that would be perverted.

I think we kind of agree.

If a women is breast feeding, I'll probably take take notice. She could likely enter my line of site MOMENTARILY, and there's nothing wrong with that. She would be wrong to complain.

If you are just staring like a dear caught in the headlights she should have just as much right to complain as you do to act like a person that no one wants to be friends with.

I would suggest they should be. The guy who masturbates to his wife's Victoria Secret catalog is different from the guy who exposes himself to strangers. These are of course just my opinions which I formed myself. Moviefan2k4, I can tell we wouldn't agree on much, but that's cool.

Fair enough, you might get a sneaky glance of the goods but a breast feeding woman shouldn't be subject to stares or ogling just because some dude can't keep his sexual urges in check.

I breast fed my kid for 9 months...can Preston please stop suggesting that we're all hideous wretches.

The root of the problem is the same, though: selfish greed. I'd rather have a real woman than an unfulfillable fantasy any day.

The term "a real woman" is pretty nonsensical. Those heavenly Goddess types in magazines are very much "real women"...and being skinny or flat chested diesnt make you less of a female contrary to popular belief.

My definition of a "real woman" is one who openly breast feeds her child funnily enough...without shame or fuss. I never had the courage to feed openly as I was frightened of narrow minded judgements and comments...I fully regret that to this day.
