ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Lunaville: Wow, am I really the only one who thinks the student who whined should have gotten a zero for the day for being a whiny little biatch?

I had both high school teachers and college professors, male and female, occasionally bring a very small child to class. It caused no disruptions at all. Some people just bend over backwards to find something to complain about.

Slight difference here. From TFA: The baby, in a blue onesie, crawled on the floor when she wasn't strapped onto Pine's back. The mother extracted a paper clip from the girl's mouth at one point and shooed her away from an electrical outlet. When the baby grew restless during the 75-minute afternoon session with 40 students, according to the professor's account, Pine breast-fed her while continuing to lecture and review the syllabus. A teaching assistant also held and rocked the child.


Sounds like someone should have taken 30 minutes over the previous week and set aside some breast milk and froze it. Then, the assistant can feed the child in another room , down the hall.

Its not like the first day of class was a surprise.

Moonk: I would be more concerned for the kid's health, since his immune system is already stressed and/or compromised. The college kids are much less likely to catch something from the kid than the other way around. Theoretically, most college students are adults, would be nice if they acted like it.


It's called a sick day.

Breastfeeding, changing a diaper, scracthing your ass and smelling your finger: all of these are perfectly natural things you can do at home or even in the park.

But as a professor coming in with a sick kid is a BAD move. Fecundity is not carte blanche to bring your home to work with you.

scottydoesntknow: FishyFred: You wouldn't want to call in sick on the day you're supposed to start a big project, would you?

To be fair, most professionals wouldn't bring their kid with them on a big project and proceed to breastfeed them in front of the other team members.


That's a bad thing, and it is actually quite unfair.

A) they aren't being paid to be there, they are the customers
B) tweeting isn't distracting.


Tweeting is sure as hell distracting. Tweeting during a lecture is a disgusting, arrogant asshole behavior that is both distracting to your fellow classmates and tells your instructor that you don't give a shiat what they're saying. If you genuinely don't understand that, then let me be the first one to break the news - people are glaring at you because you're an arrogant asshole, not because you're a special snowflake who gets hated on for doing totally social normal behavior.

again, me fiddling with my cellphone in a class of 20+ other students is nothing remotely similar to the professor chasing her child around the room during a lecture. Not even a little bit. Sure, it's rude. However, it isn't "unprofessional" because a student is not a professional. The instructor is. It is rude to talk on your cellphone during a play. It's unprofessional for an actor to do so.

she has heard two opinions from students: that breast-feeding "is very much natural," and that doing so in class is "kind of unprofessional."

And these statements are not mutually exclusive

Our university provides daycare...for $1,325/month (and more if your kid is under a year of age). But if your kid is too sick, it has to stay home.

I generally hate children, even thinking about getting snipped. But i understand this woman not wanting to leave a sick child and i understand her fear/aversion to missing the first day of class. Things like that don't look good on a review. Granted, her response doesn't look good in a review either. And as i already said, i think she put the kid at greater risk exposing him to filthy freshman.

But it has been shown time and again that breast milk is much better for infants than formula, and i do not believe that infants should be denied sustenance, even for an hour if the child is hungry. Therefore i still side with her.

Jim_Callahan: OK, firstly, the students are not upset because you're exposing a breast in the classroom. They're upset because they're paying for a proper lecture and you're just wandering around half-assing while you watch your kid. The "this isn't high school, jackass" principle works both ways: while students are expected to gird up their big-boy pants and behave like they've paid for information in the classroom and be respectful to the other students by not being a jackoff, the instructors also have a responsibility to actually provide the content the students are paying for and not waste their time by doing personal errands when they're supposed to be focused.

Secondly, bringing a sick kid into a crowded lecture hall is a good way to make everyone sick. Hell, given how close-packed most universities are, bringing a healthy kid into a lecture hall is a good way to make the baby sick. Most of the students get flu shots specifically to avoid that shiat vectoring to your baby (flu doesn't mean shiat to an 18-20 year old, they have worse in hangovers every monday morning). Don't screw that effort up by bringing the little plague-susceptible germ culture into direct (aerosol) contact with the general population, you utter farking moron.

Thirdly, there are basic common-sense options for dealing with a kid in a university setting. The one that bears repeating is just stay home with it. Your students would rather you just drop a lecture and readjust the other lectures than have you borderline incoherent because you're watching your kid while talking anyhow. The others are listed in the article:

The university emphasized that faculty members should take advantage of options such as sick leave, break times and private areas for nursing mothers to express milk so they can "maintain a focus on professional responsibilities in the classroom."


THIS!

Pretty interesting logic on your part.

"I don't believe infants should be denied sustinence, so it's okay to just cart them around even though I think exposing them to disease vectors is bad."

A potentially fatal infection is a lot worse than a little thunder belly, even for an infant.

At the Tavern, a dining room just off the central quad, Jenna Wasserman, 18, a freshman from New Jersey, said she has heard two opinions from students: that breast-feeding "is very much natural," and that doing so in class is "kind of unprofessional."

Masturbation is "very much natural," too. Does that mean that I can masturbate in Professor Pine's feminist anthropology class?

Asked whether the paper will publish a story on the matter, Cohen said, "We're still deliberating."
Publish it! She called you out, you need to respond. Don't let her push you around just because she has a Ph.D. and you don't.

That's not an "again," that's you admitting for the first time that texting during class is an arrogant asshole behavior. Texting is an arrogant asshole behavior that says, "I do not give a shiat if I am bothering any of my fellow students or my instructor."

So tell me, now, why is being an arrogant asshole who doesn't give a shiat about anyone around them better than breastfeeding a child in a classroom?

what do you think the baby does every other day when she isn't at home taking care of her? Drinks breast milk that the mother pumped the day before is my guess.

She should have cancelled that day's class.

She had an assistant that could care for her precious crotchfruit. She couldn't trust her class to this person for the next hour, or so?

It was the first class of the semester. I can understand the pressure. You wouldn't want to call in sick on the day you're supposed to start a big project, would you?


If it's that or infect my entire project team with whatever my sick infant has got...Yeah, I'd stay home. And were I one of the team members, I would TOTALLY understand. Please, keep your sick kid and his sick germs away from work. Or school.

And a professor bringing her sick child in to chase her around and breast feed is saying "I don't really give a shiat about all of you despite the fact that you pay me to come here to teach you"

Give it up, the teacher was an unprofessional douche - far worse than a college kid checking FB on his phone during class

I understand her situation, and personally I wouldn't have given a shiat, but her behavior does defy social norms, and serves as a distraction for many of the students. It's not just a baby sitting against the breast that is distracting, it's the fact that they can be quite loud while suckling. Someone making loud suckling noises in class would no doubt be reprimanded by the teacher for a distraction, but breastfeeding a baby isn't?
Just because a certain behavior is legally ok or won't get you fired, doesn't mean your students won't find it distasteful enough to drop your class, and the students aren't learning anything from your class if they don't take it.

And one of my questions is, why couldn't she just have pumped some milk earlier, and fed the child from a bottle? I understand women that are out and about doing errands not doing so because you can't really carry around breast milk since it will go bad, but the professor certainly had access to a refrigerator and could have saved it for a few hrs until feeding time, thus preventing the whole issue. Or she could have taken a 5-10 min break and had her aid fill in temporarily, since the first day of class is mainly covering rules, handing out papers, sometimes a pre-test, and going over the rest of the semesters curriculum. No reason the aid couldn't have taken over 5-10 mins of that.
While I think she should have the right to breastfeed in public, having the right doesn't mean you MUST defy social norms and offend other people just for the sake of doing so. A polite and understanding person would have considered the other people present and chosen a different way. 
I mean, it's my legal right to burp and fart in public, and no doubt it's probably more comfortable and healthy to let it out as necessary, but that doesn't mean I do that since most would find it distasteful and socially unacceptable.

When I was in undergrad, Intro to Womens' Studies fulfilled the "cross cultural" requirement.

Always struck me as odd.

I took Native American History instead, since I was minoring in History and needed an elective.

And then I took Native American Literature, because I misread the catalog and didn't realize the history class filled the C.C. requirement.

I never claimed I was college material, just that I went.

No, not really making a logical argument. I was just saying i understand the conflict she was having. And i thought it was clear from my post that staying at home was the least worse of her choices, but i guess i wasn't clear

I teach English to migrants.
Bonus points for sharing recipes.

Ooh, I need bonus points.

Migrant Stew

1 haunch of migrant, 5-8 lbs.
3 stalks celery
5 carrots, peeled
2 cloves garlic
1 medium onion, chopped coarse
2 cups migrant broth

Sear haunch in large cast iron skillet with olive oil until browned on all sides (if you can find a haunch from a migrant who worked in an organic field, it tastes better). Place in Dutch Oven with celery, carrots, garlic, onion, and migrant broth. Cover and cook at 325 degrees F. for 3 to 3.5 hours or until fork-tender. Serves 8-10.

How many points do I get?

13/10. Extra points for stylish name, and extra point for using the right version of coarse.



Um, I already have a PhD, but I'd like to audit any class you are grading. Please?

HA

Currently only 14% of collage students are adults. They can't drink, they can barely smoke, and some are even statutory rape charges walking. Plus they have parents who think if they strike out at T-ball the NEED another at bat.

Anybody remember "Bring Your Daughter To Work Day?" It started out as a way for professional women to show their reasonably-sentient daughters that women can be effective and involved in the workplace, and to introduce them to a world of work that didn't involve shopping carts or bedpans.

Then somebody biatched, and then it was "Bring Your Children To Work Day." And within two years, it devolved, for the most part, into "Save A Day's Worth Of Daycare Money And Piss Off Your Co-Workers When Your Toddler Shoves a Fruit Roll-Up Into The Server's DVD Drive Day."

dennysgod: I wouldn't have gave a single fark if one of my female professor breast feed their child in class, however what does bother me is the fact this woman brought in a sick child which means she could have either spread whatever the kid had to her students or worse you brought a child with a weaken immune system to a classroom full of college students who aren't normally the pillar of good heath.


Babies have gripey sick says which are nothing to do with infectious illness. They also have infectious illnesses, but those tend to be very short, as their little immune systems learn how to fight them off, and they are things to which everyone else has already developed immunity. In other words, you are very unlikely to catch anything from a sick baby.

Smallberries: To be fair, most professionals wouldn't bring their kid with them on a big project and proceed to breastfeed them in front of the other team members.

How can I tell you live in a flyover state?


Know how I can tell that you are an idiot?

zzrhardy: If we can put up with breeders negroes demanding that all aspects of society pass their approval, I guess they can put up with the use of the word "crotchfruit ni-bong".

Fish in a Barrel: The verb "express" always seems like a weird one to use for squeezing out some boob juice. On the other hand, I can't seem to think of any verb that doesn't come across as either crude, flippant, or needlessly vague.


Great, now I'm going to picture her "expressing" into a FedEx box.

skullkrusher: ricochet4: is there a way to automatically filter out anyone who uses the word "crotchfruit?"

alas, no. Still regarded as a witticism around these parts.


I prefer the term "Crotch Goblin" or "Goblyn of Crotche".

In regards to the incident? If I paid good money for the class, I expect quality instruction. Your personal problems should not pervade into the classroom.

Yes, your kid is YOUR problem. Not mine. What is irksome is that you continually push said crotch-dropping into my space (even though I really do try to avoid you), making it my problem and most children are too large to flush down the toilet.

/Kick the baby!

doglover: A potentially fatal infection is a lot worse than a little thunder belly, even for an infant.


If you think babies are at risk of potentially fatal infections from college students, do you think they should be banned from buses, shops, parks and anywhere else where they might encounter groups of college students. Hell, I sometimes meet groups of college students. To what potentially fatal diseases am I exposing myself?
