if she just whips them out and lets the little farker suckle then yes, kick them out. My wife fed our son all the time in public, sit in the back, face away from most everyone and wear one of those feeding sheets.

The Belgian is correct.   Making babies eat in bathrooms is inhumane.

""He was walking as if he was acting in a Western movie," Neijens said. "He had one hand on his gun, one hand on his Taser." Officers told the couple that they were trespassing and that many people were suspicious of them because of their black backpack."


Whereas previously the black backpack was okay. Was the backpack ticking, did it have Boston Marathon stickers on it and a crockpot inside?

A Belgian diplomat claims that his family was given the boot from an upscale golf club in White Plains because his wife was breast-feeding at the table during lunch. According to Tom Neijens, 36, the members of his family were made to feel like "terrorists" during the incident.

Terrorists huh.

In the US, federal law states a woman may breast feed wherever she feels like it, you don't want to see it, don't look....If you are feeling sexually disgusted over a breast feeding baby regardless if she has pert breasts or great pendulous sagging boobs, you have more issues than we should be discussing here.

One, you're generally not allowed to bring outside food to a restaurant.

Two, really, private country club?  You're going to be known as the country club that kicked out an Ambassador?  Not the smartest person to go after for a hootie tootie place.

I am sure what they said was EXACTLY what happened. Especially after reading this little tidbit;

Neijens and his wife, Roseline Remans, 34, stopped by the Metropolis Country Club and requested to have lunch even though they were not club members. They were given permission to dine by staff members and went to a table on the back terrace. Once they were seated, Remans discreetly began to feed her daughter, Luka.

Private country clubs are just that private. How much do you want to bet this couple didn't request as much as demanded saying phrases as, "Do you know who I am?" and "Do you know what I can do to this place?" And the staff just gave in rather than fight but were itching to get rid of them. Luckily, the diplomats gave them a way to kick them out.

In this country, we can turn on the TV during primetime and see a very graphic depiction of a bullet wound, complete with a chasecam showing the bullet traveling through the body, tumbling, and ripping out chunks of person on the way out.

But a diplomat from Europe is treated like a terrorist for breastfeeding her baby in a restaurant, which is already allowed in many places anyway.

Not anymore she got a breast reduction.

As for Breast feeding, my wife did it with both out kids, with all the stuff it entails.  Nobody ever got flashed, it isn't like a Cinemax movie, nor overly interesting. However, I do not recall her doing it in a restaurant. Tight asses need to lighten up!  Then again all the quotes from the guy seem to indicate he is looking to cause a kerfuffle.

A woman can breastfeed "anywhere she is otherwise legally allowed to be".

Google it. I'm on my phone, so its too much of a pain to do it for you.

And I breastfed five. In public, I had no qualms about feeding my children as needed. And I never used a sheet or cover. I also never had anybody react negatively.

It's legal. It's natural. And as long as you aren't slinging your breast over your shoulder feeding a kid on your back National Geographic style, it is hard to do it in a manner where much shows at all.

So:
  Restaurant staff spots someone nursing a baby, demands the mother go to the toilet if she wants to continue, then calls police.  Police arrive and start yelling, order a lockdown and boot other diners from the terrace.  One officer starts fondling his gun and taser, and another suggests there's a bomb.  As they then go to arrest the Europeans for whatever charges they dream up, they find out it's a family of diplomats and realize they're about to make a career ending mistake.  The then back off and explain their behavior by saying that there's often bombs at the country club and that they were just trying to keep people safe.

Describe "discreetly". Was it largely hidden from others by having your back turned or wearing a shirt made for breastfeeding? Or was it an activist style 'strip to your panties and sit in the middle of the aisle while growling at anyone who glances in your general direction and refuse to leave until the police show up' breastfeeding? I've heard both types of breastfeeding described as "discreet" by those who practice them, but there is a subtle difference between the two.

That's not surprising, as you seem to go out of your way to piss people off.  It's also not relevant since there was no terrorism used or implied, just a lady feeding her baby.  Breastfeeding has certainly existed far longer than the term "terrorism".

Well, if TFA is at all accurate they did get accused of being terrorists. FSM only knows why, but apparently it happened. The entire story is just a huge "WTF" to me though. I would hope TFA is inaccurate. If not, then everyone at this country club who was involved should be forcibly sterilized for the good of our race.

You do realize this isall the Neijens' version of events. Mind you, this is a couple who went into an upscale PRIVATE country club that they were not members of and "requested" that they be served. Since when do upscale private country clubs in New York simple shrug their shoulders and do that. Something is not adding up.  Especially since the source of the story is The Daily Mail.

0z79: In this country, we can turn on the TV during primetime and see a very graphic depiction of a bullet wound, complete with a chasecam showing the bullet traveling through the body, tumbling, and ripping out chunks of person on the way out.

But a diplomat from Europe is treated like a terrorist for breastfeeding her baby in a restaurant, which is already allowed in many places anyway.

/my country, 'tis of thee
//sweet land of liberty
///I love my country overall... but seriously, WHAT THE FARK!?


I know you'd love to turn this into an indictment of american society's take on violence vs sex...but I"m going to go with the much more likely "Stuck up golf club calls local police, who, trying to suck up to stuck up golf club try throwing words like terrorism around to intimidate the breastfeeders and then do a 180 once they get the whole diplomatic immunity speech." angle.

F*cking prudes. Right, a woman "discreetly breastfeeding" (probably with the baby's head under a cloth) freaks you right the f*ck out, but you'll blow your f*cking nose at the table, and God knows what else.

redslippers: A woman can breastfeed "anywhere she is otherwise legally allowed to be".

Google it. I'm on my phone, so its too much of a pain to do it for you.

And I breastfed five. In public, I had no qualms about feeding my children as needed. And I never used a sheet or cover. I also never had anybody react negatively.

It's legal. It's natural. And as long as you aren't slinging your breast over your shoulder feeding a kid on your back National Geographic style, it is hard to do it in a manner where much shows at all.


You terrorist! You child corrupter! You shouldn't even be allowed NEAR a child with those things.

Think of the children.

mekki: For some sad reason, I realize that whole thing SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE AMERICA TODAY.

You do realize this isall the Neijens' version of events. Mind you, this is a couple who went into an upscale PRIVATE country club that they were not members of and "requested" that they be served. Since when do upscale private country clubs in New York simple shrug their shoulders and do that. Something is not adding up. Especially since the source of the story is The Daily Mail.


That was my point - their version of events now sounds completely plausible.  A baby suckling on a foreigners titty can cause police response, evacuations and fear of terrorist attacks.  This is the new normal.  America has become a nation of bedwetters.

Remember, if it's not American flag, it's probably a bomb.

mekki: VegasVinnie: So:
  Restaurant staff spots someone nursing a baby, demands the mother go to the toilet if she wants to continue, then calls police.  Police arrive and start yelling, order a lockdown and boot other diners from the terrace.  One officer starts fondling his gun and taser, and another suggests there's a bomb.  As they then go to arrest the Europeans for whatever charges they dream up, they find out it's a family of diplomats and realize they're about to make a career ending mistake.  The then back off and explain their behavior by saying that there's often bombs at the country club and that they were just trying to keep people safe.

Pissing is biological also. You don't see me exposing myself peeing whenever I have to go or crapping with the door open in a public restroom. If you are breastfeeding, go somewhere that has some privacy, for your sake and others. Why exactly do you have to be in a public space to do this?  Most businesses now over a certain employee count or sqft. have to install nursing/lactation rooms. There is a reason why those are there. If you don't like that, fine then we will get rid of this provision that provides a nice quiet private room for you to do this.

I think that was badly phrased. Modesty in public, especially restaurants, is a societal norm. Shirt and shoes, for example. It's safe to say IMHO that the "considerate" thing to do is to avoid flashing a lot of skin when doing anything in a nice restaurant. There's a lot of history behind this, right or wrong. If you go to a place populated by older generations (e.g. a golf club) expect this "societal norm" to be enforced as strongly as they are able. In this case, absurdly so.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was trying to say. Also, some people might not appreciate watching someone breastfeed while they eat dinner. They feel uncomfortable watching what they consider to be an intimate moment between a mother and her child. And while it's "their problem", a bit of consideration for others, even if you don't agree with them, goes a long way.

There is a large difference between "most places over a certain size have to have" and "I have seen them on my projects". I am curious if you can provide real life examples because I have never seen a "lactation room" in the workplace. That implies that a sizable number of women bring their breastfeeding infants to work, which I have never seen either.

I think you are making this up, not that it is a thing, but that it is anywhere near common.

Irrelevant. They told her to feed her child in the goddamn bathroom. They have no nursing room.

jst3p: There is a large difference between "most places over a certain size have to have" and "I have seen them on my projects". I am curious if you can provide real life examples because I have never seen a "lactation room" in the workplace. That implies that a sizable number of women bring their breastfeeding infants to work, which I have never seen either.

I think you are making this up, not that it is a thing, but that it is anywhere near common.

Also, get over it. There is nothing wrong with a breastfeeding women.


Looks like it will become common though:

Section 4207 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Health Care Reform), amended the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), or federal wage and hour law. The amendment requires employers to provide reasonable break time and a private, non-bathroom place for nursing mothers to express breast milk during the workday, for one year after the child's birth. The new requirements became effective when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law on March 23, 2010.

I wonder how often such a room will actually be used, how many women bring their infants to work with them? Seems kinda silly to me.

In reading in more detail I bet the conference rooms where I work are what is used to meet these requirements:

Employers are required to provide "a place other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk." The Department's initial interpretation of the requirement is that it requires employers, where practicable, to make a room (either private or with partitions for use by multiple nursing employees) available for use by employees taking breaks to express milk.Where it is not practicable for an employer to provide a room, the requirement can be met by creating a space with partitions or curtains. Any windows in the designated room or space should be covered to ensure the space is "shielded from view.'' With any space provided for expressing milk, the employer must ensure the employee's privacy through means such as signs that designate when the space is in use, or a lock on the door.The employer is not obligated to maintain a permanent, dedicated space for nursing mothers. A space temporarily created or converted or made available when needed is sufficient provided that the space is shielded from view, and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public.At a minimum, a space must contain a place for the nursing mother to sit, and a flat surface, other than the floor, on which to place the pump. Ideally, the space will have access to electricity, so that a nursing mother can plug in an electric pump rather than use a pump with battery power. There are a range of additional features that some employers have included when providing spaces for their employees to use to express breast milk, such as sinks within or nearby the room for washing hands and cleaning pump attachments, and refrigerators within or nearby the room for storing expressed milk. While such additional features are not required, the Department notes that their provision may decrease the amount of break time needed by nursing employees to express milk.The Department interprets an employee's right to express milk for a nursing child to include the ability to safely store the milk for her child. While employers are not required to provide refrigeration options for nursing mothers for the purpose of storing expressed milk, they must allow a nursing mother to bring a pump and insulated food container to work for expressing and storing the milk and ensure there is a place where she can store the pump and insulated food container while she is at work. For recommended guidelines on the safe preparation and storage of expressed breast milk, see the I do wonder where dedicated lactation rooms are common, maybe it is regional/state?

VegasVinnie: mekki: For some sad reason, I realize that whole thing SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE AMERICA TODAY.

You do realize this isall the Neijens' version of events. Mind you, this is a couple who went into an upscale PRIVATE country club that they were not members of and "requested" that they be served. Since when do upscale private country clubs in New York simple shrug their shoulders and do that. Something is not adding up. Especially since the source of the story is The Daily Mail.

That was my point - their version of events now sounds completely plausible.  A baby suckling on a foreigners titty can cause police response, evacuations and fear of terrorist attacks.  This is the new normal.  America has become a nation of bedwetters.

Remember, if it's not American flag, it's probably a bomb.

Yes. I see, it fits your narrative of what you think America is actually like. I, on the other hand, have my doubts about this story. Especially, again, when the story source is the notoriously BS riddled The Daily Mail.

I think breastfeeding threads might be the one true constant in the history of Fark. They come up about twice a year and each of them reads just like every other one. There's the guy talking about whipping out his penis at the table and pissing. And here's the fellow bringing up sex. Boob picture x39. Righteous indignation. Tired reference to NO MA'AM posted by someone thinking they're clever. Me in here talking about breastfeeding threads all being the same. Someone replying to me that I've just described every Fark thread ever.

JuggleGeek: sufferpuppet: So again, there's some sucking, and the possibility for orgasm.  What is the difference?  If you are OK with breast feeding in public why not my blowjob?

Are you really this stupid?

Newborns need to feed 8 to 12 times a day.  They have to eat.  You damn sure don't require 12 blowjobs a day to survive.  It's an incredibly stupid argument.


I never said it was for survival.  But it damn sure improves the day.  And really, neither I nor a breastfeeding kid would suffer any if we were taken out to the car for that.  

Although you do bring up a good point.  I get hungry a lot during the day also.  If I were being breastfed at the table next to you would you be OK with that?  I usually like my milk cold, but for the sake of argument, i gotta eat too.  No beer or soda for me thanks.  Honey off with your shirt.

2013-07-01 06:04:30 PM  

God--: In the US, federal law states a woman may breast feed wherever she feels like it, you don't want to see it, don't look....If you are feeling sexually disgusted over a breast feeding baby regardless if she has pert breasts or great pendulous sagging boobs, you have more issues than we should be discussing here.


I am not so sure about that, The golf club was a private members only location. I think the federal law only covers public places, though I am not sure on that point. It is the same loophole the Augusta golf club used in the past to keep women out.

jst3p: the money is in the banana stand: jst3p: the money is in the banana stand: Rapmaster2000: imtheonlylp: Rapmaster2000: I find these threads fascinating in that there are people who are extremely averse to public breastfeeding.

im averse to it...leave something to imagination; i dont wanna see those pancakes out in public...all of a sudden everyone's CCW.

There's not even a sexual component for me to think of that.

Pissing is biological also. You don't see me exposing myself peeing whenever I have to go or crapping with the door open in a public restroom. If you are breastfeeding, go somewhere that has some privacy, for your sake and others. Why exactly do you have to be in a public space to do this?  Most businesses now over a certain employee count or sqft. have to install nursing/lactation rooms. There is a reason why those are there. If you don't like that, fine then we will get rid of this provision that provides a nice quiet private room for you to do this. I would assume most people would want privacy anyways, who are these weirdos that don't?

Citation needed.

http://www.aia.org/aiaucmp/groups/ek_public/documents/pdf/aiap037226 .p df

AIA practices. Even if it isn't part of the code requirement now (which changes all the farking time), building standards are to include these in larger builds. I have seen this on every one of my projects over 200 employees in a space. I really don't feel like digging through the documents to suffice you, so if you are curious go browse it.

There is a large difference between "most places over a certain size have to have" and "I have seen them on my projects". I am curious if you can provide real life examples because I have never seen a "lactation room" in the workplace. That implies that a sizable number of women bring their breastfeeding infants to work, which I have never seen either.

I think you are making this up, not that it is a thing, but that it is anywhere near common.

Also, get over it. There is nothing wrong ...


You have never seen a lactation room? Exactly what line of work are you in and where? Lloyd's Register (Lloyd's of London) and Quanex both have nursing/lactation rooms. As a poster confirmed, in the grocery stores they built they have them as well. I referred you to the AIA document for code requirements of the rooms themselves. The onus isn't on me to prove it, but for your lazy ass to go look it up now and do a little bit of research. Also, lactation/nursing rooms does not necessarily mean that you will be nursing a child there, but doing pumping. You will also see these labeled "Quiet Rooms" etc. on plan.

Again, you have absolutely no ground on as to why breastfeeding should be allowed anywhere under any circumstance other than you don't believe there is anything wrong with it. I don't care either, however, I am amused by the amount of women who have no issue with exposing themselves in public instead of wanting to go to a more private area, and are actively arguing for that "right." Are you just fatties who are too inconvenienced to walk the 3 steps to a restroom?

I could fart in the bathroom, but that makes me feel segregated against.
If I'm at a restaurant and I need to fart, I'll just go ahead and do it.
If the people at the table next to are bothered by my farting, that's their problem.

Maybe it is regional. I grew up in Santa Cruz. People change out of bathing suits in the parking lot at the beach.

But wanting a woman to go to the restroom to feed a baby is pretty farking gross. How about this, next time you are at a restaurant and someone starts breastfeeding, take your plate to the restroom.

See how stupid that sounds?

It is a waste of real-estate. Those rooms rarely if ever go used. Clients all hate it and argue about having to have them. It isn't my space, I don't give a damn, but just know it is a waste of real-estate which is infuriating. I cannot tell you how many retarded ADA code restrictions there are that cripple businesses when renovating to bring something up to code. There is a lot of common sense and altruism behind some of those codes, but in reality it is a bunch of needless expenditures. Common sense unfortunately is not part of the equation.

Google it. I'm on my phone, so its too much of a pain to do it for you.

And I breastfed five. In public, I had no qualms about feeding my children as needed. And I never used a sheet or cover. I also never had anybody react negatively.

It's legal. It's natural. And as long as you aren't slinging your breast over your shoulder feeding a kid on your back National Geographic style, it is hard to do it in a manner where much shows at all.


Can I ask you why you felt the need to have five farking children?

Can I ask you why you felt the need to have five farking children?


Because 6 would be too many?

You forgot the insufferable Farker who goes to great lengths to point out that all breastfeeding threads are the same... oh no, wait, you've got that one covered as well.

I haven't seen someone biatch about having to design lactation rooms for his projects before, so there is something new in this one.

It is a waste of real-estate. Those rooms rarely if ever go used. Clients all hate it and argue about having to have them. It isn't my space, I don't give a damn, but just know it is a waste of real-estate which is infuriating. I cannot tell you how many retarded ADA code restrictions there are that cripple businesses when renovating to bring something up to code. There is a lot of common sense and altruism behind some of those codes, but in reality it is a bunch of needless expenditures. Common sense unfortunately is not part of the equation.


They're tricky to design, too. If you don't get the lighting just right, the cameras will be obvious, and then, BAM! There goes your fetish web-site.

In the state of New York,


IN PUBLIC
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT:
To breastfeed your baby in any public or private place where you have a right to be. This includes stores, day care centers, doctors' offices, restaurants, parks, movie theaters and many other places.
No one can tell you to leave any of these places because you are breastfeeding, and no one can tell you to breastfeed in a bathroom, a basement or a private room.

jst3p: the money is in the banana stand: Again, you have absolutely no ground on as to why breastfeeding should be allowed anywhere under any circumstance other than you don't believe there is anything wrong with it. I don't care either, however, I am amused by the amount of women who have no issue with exposing themselves in public instead of wanting to go to a more private area, and are actively arguing for that "right." Are you just fatties who are too inconvenienced to walk the 3 steps to a restroom?

Maybe it is regional. I grew up in Santa Cruz. People change out of bathing suits in the parking lot at the beach.

But wanting a woman to go to the restroom to feed a baby is pretty farking gross. How about this, next time you are at a restaurant and someone starts breastfeeding, take your plate to the restroom.

See how stupid that sounds?


You're right that does sound stupid and not at all equivocal.

Those people changing out of bathing suits, see they are mostly obscured by their car doors or by towels or even in cars. You don't see people just drop their drawers and change clothing right there on the beach. They go to a designated area, be it bathroom, changing room, car - something convenient and with some sort of privacy. In regards to breast feeding in your opinion, as soon as your baby cries, you should be able to just start feeding them right there right? What about children who get hungry, can they now eat anywhere they want? Can I eat anywhere where I want?

Absolutes are dangerous, I would say breast feeding in the pool is a bad idea, but that pretty much is in line with my "no expelling bodily fluids in the pool" rule. But generally I think women should be able to breastfeed in any public place.

What about children who get hungry, can they now eat anywhere they want?

I bring snacks for the kids when we are out, if they are hungry generally they eat. Of course, not in the pool or other common sense exceptions.

Can I eat anywhere where I want?

See above, there are some places no one should eat.

Now we are talking about a restaurant. I don't see why any person should no be allowed to eat at the table in a restaurant.

That is the argument of every farking client that is required to have one, and my argument. A lot of times what you get is a telephone call room or break room in these facilities labeled as Nursing/Lactation, then the plans get submitted for review, all is well - room gets used for whatever function the client was going to use the room for anyways. Same goes for all sorts of things like ovens or microwaves in an office break room. Since common sense does not belong as a factor, you have businesses classified as "food service" because they have an oven or disposal system. It is retarded.

I would say it is up to the restaurant to decide that. They can decide the attire that is appropriate, they should be able to also decide whether or not patrons are allowed to breastfeed at the table or have to go to a separate location. If the person wanting to breastfeed is not happy with the location they are told to breastfeed or denied that, don't go there then - that is however not your right.We are talking about a private business here. Public facilities should have a private room however that is conducive and accessible for breastfeeding.

That's just it. The couple and their baby didn't have a right to be there. It was a private club that they were not members of. They "requested" to be able to eat there DESPITE not being members. The club said yes but then revoked their invitation, which, the couple not being members, the club had the right to do.

Ummm.... that is not a valid legal source.  Just saying.

Seriously, it might BE the law in NY, but a link to a private civil liberties organization is NOT the same as a cite.  Do you know actual statutes that support this?  (And yes, I could google it - but I am afraid if I google something about breasts, the gummint spies at the NSA will know!!!!)

Seriously, I love the knee jerk derp reactions that parents have whenever I question conspicuous procreation. Talk about "butthurt"!

If it's ok to be milked in public, it should be ok to run around topless is all I'm saying. If it isn't ok to run around topless, then pulling it out in view of everyone should be off limits.

So it's rude when they question your procreation decision, but it's OK for you to rudely question theirs. Got it. As far as someone else having however many kids they want: It's like when some other arrogant busybody says, "Why do you NEED to own a handgun?" ... as if one must have a "need" that they approve of in order to exercise a right.

The answer to any of these questions is, "None of your f*cking business." (Or "Why did you NEED to wear a blue shirt today?" Makes as much sense.)

And if you think I, a child-free woman, don't know how rude people can be about that, you are more self-centered than I thought.

I said nothing about breastfeeding in public not being a right, I said within a restaurant or private establishment that right does not extend there. I advocated the feeding rooms to be in public areas for mothers who do not wish to feed in public, but they should not be relegated to that. Further, I believe it is the manner in which they feed their child that they should respect the same laws someone not nursing has to abide by which would be to cover that shiat up.

What exactly do you disagree with me on and how does "society" disagree with me? A business should be able to ask a patron to leave for whatever reason they deem necessary. I disagree with extending this "public right" to a "private location." I am arguing for businesses to set whatever ground rules they deem necessary, as long as it does not conflict with our basic rights. The right to breastfeed is not a basic right, however denying entry based on race is.

My wife and I ARE self-centered- to an extent. It's why we decided to not have kids. We still enjoy our company WAY too much to potentially fark it up with a mewling, screaming, begging resource-sucker. We're weird like that I guess. However, we are fairly "live and let live"... until that shiat is thrown in our face. Which it is routinely.

And your screaming brood IS my "business" when their shiatty behavior infringes on my space/privacy, etc.

That's kind of how rights work, if you open your business to the public your rights extend to within your business. In order to invalidate those rights you need to be a private club.

What exactly do you disagree with me on and how does "society" disagree with me? A business should be able to ask a patron to leave for whatever reason they deem necessary.

The right to breastfeed is not a basic right, however denying entry based on race is.

The vast majority of states, thus in my opinion "society", disagrees with you:

Forty-five states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands have laws that specifically allow women to breastfeed in any public or private location. (Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.)

the money is in the banana stand: jst3p: WhippingBoy: swahnhennessy: I think breastfeeding threads might be the one true constant in the history of Fark. They come up about twice a year and each of them reads just like every other one. There's the guy talking about whipping out his penis at the table and pissing. And here's the fellow bringing up sex. Boob picture x39. Righteous indignation. Tired reference to NO MA'AM posted by someone thinking they're clever. Me in here talking about breastfeeding threads all being the same. Someone replying to me that I've just described every Fark thread ever.

You forgot the insufferable Farker who goes to great lengths to point out that all breastfeeding threads are the same... oh no, wait, you've got that one covered as well.

I haven't seen someone biatch about having to design lactation rooms for his projects before, so there is something new in this one.

It is a waste of real-estate. Those rooms rarely if ever go used. Clients all hate it and argue about having to have them. It isn't my space, I don't give a damn, but just know it is a waste of real-estate which is infuriating. I cannot tell you how many retarded ADA code restrictions there are that cripple businesses when renovating to bring something up to code. There is a lot of common sense and altruism behind some of those codes, but in reality it is a bunch of needless expenditures. Common sense unfortunately is not part of the equation.


They use them for store rooms. Same as the Men's Bathroom gets turned into in almost any "Women's" retail place.

And the rant is misplaced... but the ADA is farking out of control. What a god awful POS piece of legislation that is. No grandfathering... and no enforcement protocol. So now we have a whole industry of lawyers going around and suing businesses and local governments for ADA violations.

Also gotta point out... I love that jst3p basically said you (and I) are full of shiat... then looked it up... found the citation... and instead of remotely acknowledging what a dick he was about it... proceeds to berate you for "biatching" about it.

Here's the test: if you're free to breast feed at will, then I get to stare intently at you while you do it. If you've got a problem with that, you need to "get over yourself". Being stared at shouldn't make you feel uncomfortable, so says I.

Yeah, my bad.

Still, it isn't as bad as was claimed, it isn't required to have a dedicated room so just make your break rooms have some private areas with a curtain. I still don't see it biatchworthy.

MadAzza: the money is in the banana stand: MadAzza: darch: jst3p: darch: redslippers: A woman can breastfeed "anywhere she is otherwise legally allowed to be".

Google it. I'm on my phone, so its too much of a pain to do it for you.

And I breastfed five. In public, I had no qualms about feeding my children as needed. And I never used a sheet or cover. I also never had anybody react negatively.

It's legal. It's natural. And as long as you aren't slinging your breast over your shoulder feeding a kid on your back National Geographic style, it is hard to do it in a manner where much shows at all.

Can I ask you why you felt the need to have five farking children?

To piss off people who really shouldn't give a damn but think the world is overpopulated?

It is. And these people are part of the problem. Personally, I don't get wanting to have even ONE, but five? That's just conspicuous procreation. Weeee! Look everyone! Look what we can do!

Attention whores, the lot of them.

I love it. Another busybody old man whining and crying about what other people's private business. "LISTEN TO MEEEE! Someone, please pay attention to MEEEE! I know what's best for everyone else! WAAAAAH why won't you listen to meee ..."

Talk about attention whoring. And what a bunch of nosy, gossipy little totalitarians. Oh, right, I'm on Fark. Carry on! The world will keep advancing as you keep dying off. Cheers!

Says the person who has no kids. Your opinion is about as valid as the Old Guy's going by your logic. Oh, I forgot because you are a women this is a women's issue so no one else can have any say on what you do with your body.

You're obviously running out of straw men and idiotic, unimaginative lies about me. Keep trying, though -- the other idiots you're trying to get through to will lap it up like Axe Body Spray. "Yeah hurr hurr she totally said nobody else has a right to an opinion duuuuude!"


You are criticizing darch for being a totalitarian busybody who thinks they know what is best for everyone else, yet you yourself are doing the exact same thing. You apparently are not considering their opinion or believe they have that right. Considering by your admission you are "childfree and happy that way," how come your opinion is not totalitarian considering it is about others and not you yourself?

Right, but wouldn't it be better if I didn't stare, and if a breast-feeding woman used a modicum of discretion? Just because you have a right do to something, doesn't mean you should.

In my experience most do. Sure there are the activists, but they are trying to make a point because there are still people in the world that think they should take the baby to the bathroom to feed him. Once people stop giving women shiat for breastfeeding in public there will be no need for the militant activist whipping out the boob as conspicuously as possible to make a point.

It depends if whoever is doing the suing thinks a "couple curtains" is private enough.

Retailers hate them because they cost them money. Rents are calculated per SQ foot... retailers know how much their stores should be generating per SQ foot. Most lactation rooms are 5x8 (that's the minimum size if the door swings into the room). So that's 40sf per store that is wasted... at... let's say a national average of $3 per sf per month. For a brand with 10,000 locations... that's $14m you just shiat away.

That's why the biatching.

darch: MadAzza: darch: Seriously, I love the knee jerk derp reactions that parents have whenever I question conspicuous procreation. Talk about "butthurt"! I've been with the same woman for 25 years, married for 16. We made the conscious decision to NOT have children and you wouldn't believe how rude people with children can be- especially to my wife. And you people freak when I flip it and ask "Why the hell did you feel the need to bring yet another human being into the world?"

So it's rude when they question your procreation decision, but it's OK for you to rudely question theirs. Got it. As far as someone else having however many kids they want: It's like when some other arrogant busybody says, "Why do you NEED to own a handgun?" ... as if one must have a "need" that they approve of in order to exercise a right.

The answer to any of these questions is, "None of your f*cking business." (Or "Why did you NEED to wear a blue shirt today?" Makes as much sense.)

And if you think I, a child-free woman, don't know how rude people can be about that, you are more self-centered than I thought.

My wife and I ARE self-centered- to an extent. It's why we decided to not have kids. We still enjoy our company WAY too much to potentially fark it up with a mewling, screaming, begging resource-sucker. We're weird like that I guess. However, we are fairly "live and let live"... until that shiat is thrown in our face. Which it is routinely.

And your screaming brood IS my "business" when their shiatty behavior infringes on my space/privacy, etc.


Again: I have no "screaming brood." The reason you are childless is the same reason I am. Did you even read my post?

2013-07-01 07:27:06 PM  

jst3p: But yeah, I was overly dickish to the money is in the banana stand, and ignorant regarding the recent regulations for lactation closets. I apologize.


That's perfectly ok, nobody really knows about those regulations. I also apologize if I came off hostile, but I do strongly disagree with telling private businesses that they cannot ask someone to leave or stop doing something that is offending the other patrons. If a child is screaming, it isn't the right of the parent to remain in the establishment with their screaming child. It is distracting to the other patrons. I am very much for civil liberty, however I feel that too often do we infringe on businesses now-a-days. That is what my point of the lactation closets was (and ADA). There are certain financial implications that occur when you decide to dictate to a business what it can and cannot do. There are some times the government should intervene, in cases of gross neglect for an individual's rights.

I really do not care and it does not bother me if someone breastfeeds in the open. I am a freaking art major, I am used to naked people. I am kind of baffled however that our nation is so concerned with privacy, yet when it comes to breastfeeding, the notion would be that "hey we don't need that!" Why exactly then, do I question, we need regulations regarding private lactation rooms then if the law is contradictory and it is your right to do so wherever you please? Why then do we ALSO have to provide specific rooms with privacy?

In my opinion, it is up to the individual to seek privacy should they require it. Public areas should be provided for, but businesses should not be forced to provide these areas. Businesses further, like any other thing, should be able to ask you to stop doing something or leave the establishment if they deem that breastfeeding in their restaurant is either NOT permitted, or that you are disturbing others (as silly as that is) so you need to either leave, or do that elsewhere.

A logical person would either not go to that place of business or seek somewhere where they can breastfeed, not say it is your right to do whatever you want whenever you want and no one can tell you what to do. What about businesses which are made up by people. You are infringing on others' livelihoods in order to suffice a point. I think that is wrong. If the restaurant is occupied by 100 prudes who all file complaints at the breastfeeding and the restaurant deems it wise to ask that patron to leave or they risk 100 people's businesses, is it really right that that 1 person remain there? That isn't fair to the business.

I don't get this. Are you saying every human is infringing on your space/privacy, or just her kids (presupposing shiatty behavior of course, what ever that means)? If it's everybody (that includes you) than are you are making an argument that everybody invades everybody else's space so that's kind of a non-starter as a reason not to breed.

From what I gather, American restaurants only have two spaces: The dining room and the bathroom. If a breastfeeding woman is the dining room and is asked to breastfeed elsewhere, the only possible choice she has is the bathroom. There are no other empty spaces, no quiet discrete corners, nothing. It's the dining room or the bathroom.

Seriously, I love the knee jerk derp reactions that parents have whenever I question conspicuous procreation. Talk about "butthurt"! I've been with the same woman for 25 years, married for 16. We made the conscious decision to NOT have children and you wouldn't believe how rude people with children can be- especially to my wife. And you people freak when I flip it and ask "Why the hell did you feel the need to bring yet another human being into the world?"


See, I really don't give a shiat whether or not you and your wife decided not to procreate. That was your choice, and you had every right to make it. I chose differently, and you have no right to force your beliefs down my throat, any more than an evangelical does.

And I'm Jewish. If I want to have 20 kids, just consider it making up for the 80% of my family that were killed during the Holocaust.

Sanctimonious bullshiat is sanctimonious bullshiat, regardless of the religious or political leaning of the dumbass spouting it.

wambu: WhippingBoy: ReverendJynxed: What the hell is wrong with eating in the bathroom? It's not like there aren't folks here who are probably sitting on the can with a sandwich and a cigarette at this very moment.

From what I gather, American restaurants only have two spaces: The dining room and the bathroom. If a breastfeeding woman is the dining room and is asked to breastfeed elsewhere, the only possible choice she has is the bathroom. There are no other empty spaces, no quiet discrete corners, nothing. It's the dining room or the bathroom.

Or maybe back where the waitresses catch a smoke break or give handjobs to the dishwashers.?


Behind the dumpster is good too I suppose.

There are a lot of parents who vehemently disagree. When a childless person has to hear an endless stream of how they're "godless", " diseased", "satanic", and various other insults, just because they don't have a wife and kids, it gets old.

With these 'extremist breeders' being so common, I'm guessing the natural reaction to someone with a lot of kids is to assume they are also in that category, and respond in kind.

Then those parents are likely too stupid to raise decent kids.

I've been lumped in with the uber religious g-d-owns-my-womb asshats many times. It really pisses me off when assumptions are made without any evidence of their accuracy.

And I find it rather telling that he immediately did to me what he claims had him all butthurt to begin with.

"He was walking as if he was acting in a Western movie," Neijens said. "He had one hand on his gun, one hand on his Taser." Officers told the couple that they were trespassing and that many people were suspicious of them because of their black backpack.

Oh, FFS.

People who react badly to a woman breastfeeding her child in public need to get the fark over it.

People who suggest to feeding mothers that they should use a bathroom stall for that purpose need to STFU.

Keystone Cops who approach a couple with a baby at lunch with one hand twitching over their Taser holsters need to go back to their Police Academy and learn a modicum of professionalism

People who post pictures of golfing cuties with impressive curves are cool, though.

This thread could use more of the latter and less of the former.

sufferpuppet: That's right precious, don't answer the question.  You can ignore the question but it doesn't mean there isn't an equivalence


There is no equivalence. Breastfeeding is not a form of blowjob.

WhippingBoy: Also, some people might not appreciate watching someone breastfeed while they eat dinner


Some people feel uncomfortable with black people are eating in the same place.

the money is in the banana stand: Again, you have absolutely no ground on as to why breastfeeding should be allowed anywhere under any circumstance other than you don't believe there is anything wrong with it.


Can't think of a better reason for allowing stuff. But you obviously think there is something wrong with breastfeeding. Is it just that it gives you an erection, or is there something more to it?

I don't care either, however, I am amused by the amount of women who have no issue with exposing themselves in public instead of wanting to go to a more private area, and are actively arguing for that "right." Are you just fatties who are too inconvenienced to walk the 3 steps to a restroom?

Have you ever asked a breastfeeding mother why she doesn't mind doing it in public?
 
2013-07-02 02:01:33 PM  

the money is in the banana stand: I would say it is up to the restaurant to decide that. They can decide the attire skin colour that is appropriate, they should be able to also decide whether or not patrons are allowed to breastfeed be black at the table or have to go to a separate location. If the person wanting to breastfeed be black is not happy with the location they are told to breastfeed eat or denied that, don't go there then - that is however not your right.We are talking about a private business here.


How's that old "it's a private business" argument holding up? Still OK?
 
2013-07-02 02:04:50 PM  

WhippingBoy: Here's the test: if you're free to breast feed at will, then I get to stare intently at you while you do it. If you've got a problem with that, you need to "get over yourself". Being stared at shouldn't make you feel uncomfortable, so says I.


Are you OK with been stared at intently while pissing in a urinal?

You're confusing the terms "private business" and "members only".

A privately owned business that is otherwise open to the public is held to all the standard anti-discrimination laws.

A private club open only to members, as was the restaurant in TFA, can exclude people on any basis they want, even race/gender/handicap. Sure, it might not be in the best taste, but would you really want to force your way into a club where you know you're not welcome (as the woman in TFA did)?

I know. Are you happy with that?

Do you have any reasonable alternative, outside of letting people go anywhere and do anything?
