Dear Lindsay,

As a fellow parent...Jesus f*cking Christ.  No one really wants to see your stupid kid suck on your whale titty. Least of all the guy sitting next to you who probably wishes he could put a bullet through his brain. Most of us would prefer you cover that sh*t up. Is that too much to ask?

Honestly though, no one seriously gives a sh*t except probably you and the friggin milk nazis at La Leche League. Most people on said plane would probably defend your right to whip tit out for your kid because most of us have been there. Just don't be surprised if a couple of weirdos stare at you and lick their lips throughout the flight, and if a couple of people on the plane who never have kids and genuinely hate you give you creepy mad stares like you are ruining their life. Be prepared to deal with it.

I honestly don't get people who can't be bothered to put a coverup on though. It's almost like they want someone to start sh*t about it so they can get all pissy. I mean if that's OK, it should be OK to get a BJ in public, right? As long as I cum.

Oh, ya think?

GOD, I hate the breastfeeding group here.  Perpetually angry, pushy, loud-mouthed, belligerent biatches.  I'm all for women speaking our minds, and surely don't shun healthy debate... but their entire lives seem to revolve around, basically, "You will watch me breast-feed!  YOU WILL!!  WATCH ME, DAMN YOU!  WAAAAAATCH MEEEEEEEEE!!!"

Fark y'all.  Go away.

a woman on a Delta commuter flight in Vermont was forced off her flight because she refused to cover herself with a blanket while breastfeeding. She sued the airline and received an out-of court settlement.

Didn't I read an article about a guy who got thrown off a plane because the pilot didn't like his t-shirt? They can throw anyone off for anything but this broad sued?

They'd die of vaccine preventable diseases before the plain got airborne.

And seriously? Look, I get that breast feeding is not sexual. But you don't pull out your tit in public without getting a few aside looks. No one wants to watch you doing that. It's not impressive, and it's not bold.
 
2014-02-26 11:28:19 PM  
Seriously? In an airline seat? A cover is required?

How many people could that possibly bother?

1 in a window seat but you would have to crank your head over to see anything
2 in a middle seat but you would have to crank your head over to see anything
2 in an aisle seat but you would have to crank your head around to see anything
2 in a middle seat of a center section but you would have to crank your head around to see anything.

And given what I assume are Delta's bullshiat fees for weight limits and bags, fark Delta.

I assume most breastfeeding women will bring a cover of their choice in their carry on bag, especially if they have their baby with them, and for the small minority that don't? Who gives a rats ass?

A mother could breastfeed her baby on the plane with a giant arrow pointing at her tit and "WATCH MY KID SUCK MILK FROM MY BOOBS" written across her rack for all I care, if it keeps the little brat from crying throughout the flight.

I don't understand the cringing when a mother feeds her child the way nature intended.

Who. The. fark. Cares??!

And, basement dwellers, it is nowhere near the same thing as pissing, or shiatting or jerking off. Pissing/shiatting is the elimination of bodily waste that can be and often is potentially harmful to others. The contents are segregated from the rest of the population as to not spread infection. And If you're masturbating on a plane, you're just showing off.

Kid gets fed, he's happy, he's quiet. Don't be scared.

No.  It has to crash where there are lots of cameras so we can enjoy the carnage for years to come

I lost count of how many meals I missed because I would take my babies into a stall in the restroom to nurse them. If I was at home and we had company, I either covered up with a baby blanket or went into the other room. It just seemed the more respectful thing to do. At least, that was the way I felt comfortable nursing in public. I can't speak for what may be right for others.

That being said, it makes me uncomfortable when women nurse babies without covering up. Not to the point where I would say anything or shoot them a nasty look but...I'm awfully glad when they put the girls back up.

/and no, I don't know why
 
2014-02-26 11:36:21 PM  
I took my daughter when she was 2 months old on a flight.  We sat in first class so that there would be more room, and I breastfed her...I could never get the hang of cover-ups and my kids didn't like them, but I still had my shirt on, so I doubt anyone could have seen anything.  99% of the moms that I know who breastfeed are very discrete about it even without cover-ups, and it's really not a big deal because most people would never even know what they were doing.

What are they, mormons? Other women who are resentful? What?
 
2014-02-26 11:39:16 PM  
Why would you even ask unless you were looking for a fight.  They were lucky they got some idiot to say they can't.  Now they can scream how awful the company is.

Seriously it's just a boob.  They aren't scary.

2014-02-26 11:40:57 PM  
Had a mom next to me breastfeeding her kid on previous flight (US domestic).    Made no attempt to cover up, I didn't care.    is this an issue elsewhere or just America?

2014-02-26 11:42:37 PM  
I rarely fed in public just because I felt there was no need to. I found it profoundly personal and bonding.

When I had to in mixed company I covered up. Mainly because my tit hanging out was a distraction, even slightly. Wrong or right it's a fact.
 
2014-02-26 11:43:00 PM  
So I don't have to use a cover if I masturbate to a woman breastfeeding on a Delta flight?
 
2014-02-26 11:47:35 PM  
It's A-OK as long as I can watch.  If I lick my lips it's just because they are dry.
 
2014-02-26 11:47:36 PM  
Unfortunately, it seems that a disproportionate number of pro-public breast feeders are the same type at nude beaches, the last ones you want to be exposed to. The hairy, Whole Food shopping, entitled, outspoken moms. I don't give a flying fark if a woman whips out her tit in front of me to feed little Dillon, just don't expect me look or react (which is surely a factor).

This.

Look, haters, there's this thing called context. You'll learn about it as you grow up. Let me give you a few examples:

1. You see a picture of a pair of boobies on the internet. You might form an opinion about their size, shape, colour, perkiness, or some other characteristic, but really, it's just a picture - get back to work.

2. The owner of a real, live pair of boobies invites you to play with them. This is great, and should occupy all your attention. Remember to be gentle but thorough, and your efforts will be well rewarded.

3. You and some other parents are sitting around drinking coffee and discussing your children's school uniform policy (for example). Your wife's best friend whips one out and begins to feed her infant. It's permissible to glance, and even smile at the young one enjoying his or her lunch, but you should really focus on the discussion.

So, you see that your reaction to something can be different depending on the circumstances. You can safely ignore a breastfeeding mother - she won't hurt you if you leave her alone.

Some babies get very upset if you cover them up while they're nursing. My son was certainly that way. And when the baby is clamped on and nursing you cannot see the mother's nipple.

Also, trying to compare feeding an infant with a sex act is lame. Granted society has sexualized breasts, but first & foremost they're for nourishing an infant.
 
2014-02-26 11:48:22 PM  
Which would you rather have:

A mother who asks you to stand up and get her "kid-supplies bag" from the overhead for you, dumps a bottle of airport "spring" water into a 2" dia hole while turbulence flings the airplane about, shakes the powder and water to mix, sending a fine mist of droplets all over, coaxes an infant into drinking the cold mess, and then attempts to catch the baby vomit that sprays it all over the interior while its head does a 360 degree pattern a la The Exorcist

...OR...

A mother who calmly opens her blouse, settles the kid in, and proceeds to supply nutrition to the kid and peace and quiet to everyone around her.

I've had to travel with both (one of our kids was fussy about formula), and I have to tell you, the second option is the least disruptive, with or without a "cover up."
 
2014-02-26 11:48:40 PM  
She was interviewed on KFI in Los Angeles today. What it comes down to is. She was on a long flight. Her baby had oral surgery. The baby wont take from the bottle. Where the problem is. (If you see it as a problem) She asked on Twitter if she could breast feed in the open without the normal blanket that a mother usually uses. She said the baby wont feed covered up.
Now dont really care if she is feeding. Its part of life and normal. The only kind of problem I have is what about the other people on the plane. Now not everyone is as open minded as me. But what about strict religious people. This is where I have a problem. Who's right trump who's?
 
2014-02-26 11:49:32 PM  
If she can pump out tit-juice, then I get to w**** off furiously on the plane to the dismay and horror of other passengers.

Torn on this one, because odds are suckling would keep the crotch fruit quiet for a few minutes. However, the milk-Nazis annoy me to no end because they expect the rest of us to care so much about a very minor issue. Bottle or Breast, who really cares.

FTFA: "...she refused to cover herself with a blanket while breastfeeding." (yes, I know it is referring to a different incident)

The question is "WHY?"

I'd like to hear a valid reason.

As was said before:
It's almost like they want someone to start sh*t about it so they can get all pissy.

I'll try to set up a similar case.

Here in Arizona, open carry of firearms is legal anywhere not posted "No Firearms". But, even if not posted, you must, by law, disarm if a store requests it - which may be due to another customer being "uncomfortable".

/this being Arizona, most people accept open carry as a way of life - even feeling more comfortable that some wacko is not going to start sh*t with you around

I honestly don't get people who can't handle seeing a bare breast in public.  It's almost like they think they wouldn't be able to control their sexual urges upon seeing a bare breast.  And those who compare breastfeeding to something sexual really really really need to see a therapist right away.  You've got major issues
