Some Things In Life Are Not Meant to be Public Displays

Military moms breastfeeding in uniform in public

Society has broken through the limits of common decency and respect, not only respect for others, but respect for ourselves, as well, and regularly ignore the rights of others, thinking only selfishly.

Breast feeding in public is not something that should be done in full view of the public.  Whipping out a milk-plump breast in public goes beyond the limits of common decency.  Just because a woman has a child and is able and willing to breastfeed it does not mean she should subject everyone who can see her to the sight of her tit exposed to the world.

To those women who have children, want to have children, who breastfeed, want to breastfeed, there is nothing wrong with being proud of your breastfeeding-baby and the fact that you are able to breastfeed it, but your pride, your views that there is no shame in breastfeeding does not give you the right to pop out your breast in full view of the world.

Breastfeeding is like defecating in public.  It is a natural thing.  But I would be equally offended if a woman squatted down in the middle of a mall to defecate.  Some things are just not meant to be publicly displayed.  There is no shame in relieving one’s bowels, but that doesn’t mean you should be able to defecate in full view of the public.

Military women in uniform must keep in mind that above everything else–they are government property.  Yes, when they signed their enlistment contract, just like men they became property of the U.S. Government, and to disgrace the uniform is a disgrace to all.

No female soldier, sailor, Marine or AF woman should be pulling their boobs out in public in uniform to breast feed.  Okay, so they are proud.  Fine.  But they must have forgotten, all women who breastfeed in public, must have forgotten having a baby that wants to suck on a breast does not give the mother the right to ignore the rights of others who don’t want to see that done in public.  The mother is not the only one who has rights.  There are still many people who have the right to say, “It is not something everyone should see.  It embarrasses me deeply.”

So, the next time a mother wants her baby to suckle at her plump breast, maybe she should think about others who may be offended by the sight, and go feed her baby privately.  Have some common decency, for Christ’s sake, and some respect for people other than yourselves.  Stop being so self-centered and ignorant of the opinions of others.  Having a baby does not mean you can do whatever you want and to hell with everyone else.

    Breastfeeding is a personal thing between the mother and a baby. Having sex is also a personal thing. They both should not be publicly displayed. Women who breastfeed in public are saying, ‘I don’t give a damn about you or your feelings. I only care about me, and if what I do offends you, then fuck off.” Get my point?
