The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: 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.


It's not waste.

some proud mom started titty feeding her little crotch fruit on an airport shuttle van right next to me last week. i was on my way home from a fabulous vacation. what a thoroughly disgusting way top end it. 45 minutes next to gurgling and sucking noises...gross me out.

I think some people just find the idea that breasts make milk horrifying and grotesque.

kombi: 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?


That's an easy question to answer.  The baby's need to be fed trumps everyone else.  Because the other people don't want to hear a crying baby on the plane.  And yes, some babies freak out when you cover them up with a blanket when they are nursing.  The stewardess was 100% in the wrong here.  And honestly, I don't know why the mother even bothered asking, she should have simply fed the child.
 
2014-02-27 12:08:02 AM
She's right.  You can be a whiny asshole and still be right.  Nothing makes babies happier than feeding (breast or bottle, whatever they prefer), a happy baby is a quiet baby, and nothing makes airplane passengers (especially grumpy, childless neckbeards like many of you guys) happier than a quiet baby.

"Delta is currently trying to backpedal its way out of this public relations nightmare, but moms observe, listen and remember when one of their own is discriminated against," writes Monica Beyer on the blog She Knows Parenting.

Oh for crying out loud.  Trust me lady, Delta Airlines likely gives zero farks who breastfeeds where, but no matter how much they educate their employees, some pinheaded asshole minion is going to do this again some day and there's really not much the head office can do short of firing them after the fact.
 
2014-02-27 12:10:30 AM
While i happen to think a mother feeding her baby at her breast is a beautiful thing a cover up is probably best when your in a place you can't be sure how doing so will be received.


That said nothing is more beautiful than a dutiful and loving mother giving her child nourishment from her breast, tis  an act of love for the child not anything sexual.

The kid's right to eat does, and let me tell you, it is in the best interest of the other passengers to let the kid eat. Hungry babies are loud and completely inconsolable. Even a religious nut or whomever would hypothetically be offended should prefer a glance of nipple to a baby screaming on a long flight.
 
2014-02-27 12:12:10 AM
Seems to me the real problem is that she tweeted to ask permission.  Should have just gone ahead and fed the kid -- who would have noticed or complained?

/eat it, Delta... you farked up... in a grotesquely obvious manner.


How did Delta fark up? By asking militant boobslingers to have some common courtesy and respect? The Delta rep wasn't rude or disrespectful; they simply said, "you need to cover up."

No different really from asking someone dressed like Miley Cyrus or Rihanna to cover up, with the exception that the Mileys and Rihannas of the world haven't yet created mini-me's (thank whatever deity you do or don't worship for that small mercy!). It's not especially burdensome TO cover up, except to the brood mare brigade.

Dear Delta Airlines
I'm so glad you are taking an enlightened view of breast feeding. I have found that I'm no longer able to tolerate your kosher, vegan, gluten free meals and can only subsist on human breast milk. Please arrange a provider of this quality or better to provide for my meals as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. I'll have my dietitian and marijuana card doctor board certified antiaging specialist send you a letter. i.huffpost.com
PS. I'm a 6 foot tall male so the chair won't be necessary.

Here's one thing I don't get... why would you WANT to breastfeed in public?  I'm sure a private restroom was a whole 30 seconds away on the airplane.

Hmm, if this leads to all mommies boycotting and refusing to ever fly Delta with their babies, they just might drum up a ton of business, including mine.

No. Airplane restrooms are cramped, and it'd be a serious inconvenience to other passengers to tie up a restroom for the time of a feeding.

She claimed the baby wis physically un able to feed under a blanket or use a bottle. I would like to see that lawsuite. Her right to feed. To lets say a Muslim man shaming her for doing it. Or an Orthadox Jew. Any far religious person. And yes. When it comes down to it. Im with the baby. And the baby needs food. I look at it this way. Everyone in every situation needs to mitigate there damages, All are at fault. The airline cant stop her from feeding. And should not be able to. But Im sorry. Some people need to show some common respect for other people. People should not stare at her exposed boob, She should not bring a baby on a 6 hour flight. (Sorry. personally I think the kid is to young.) If she had to expose herself due to any kind of well anything. I really dont care.

What's so freaking hard about throwing a blanket over the head of your crotchfruit?  Seriously, these farking mommy bloggers are a pain in the ass.  Why doesn't she just stand up and whip off her top and yell "Look!  I've got tits!  And I'm lactating!  Fark you, childless women."  Who cares?  Just do what you have to do with a modicum of modesty.

Then give me my BJ.

The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: I don't understand the cringing when a mother feeds her child the way nature intended.


With a group of twenty others sitting topless in the middle of a restaurant chanting so loud that the waiters have to ask people to point at the menu to take their order?
Standing with five others in a line holding signs and intentionally blocking the entrance to a grocery store?
Walking around your office threatening to "call the police for sexual harassment" because a manager asked if the mother would like a quiet room for the baby to go to sleep?

If you want to breastfeed your kid the way nature intended, then just sit down, shut up, and do it, "the way nature intended". As long as you don't scream in our ears or swing your flabby milk duds in our faces, chances are we won't even realize that you're doing it in the first place.

The kinds of AWs in these articles don't really care about breastfeeding at all, they just want to be the center of attention 24/7 as the perpetual victim, even when others bend over backwards to make suitable accommodations. If the mother didn't have a request to cover up, she would probably have started loudly complaining about being denied a blanket so she could cover up. The fact that she settled out of court tells me that she didn't care about setting a precedent to help out other families at all, she just wanted to force her way into becoming the next 'victim of the month'.

While the odds of the boob exposed being worth looking at is approximately zero, it could happen.

Last new mother I sat next to on a flight probably would have been a good show... although that would have been an uncomfortable... can't look... must look... can't look... must look... situation. It was pretty much that already with the top she was wearing.
 
2014-02-27 12:38:14 AM
Did that mean she carried more that 3.4oz on the plane?
 
2014-02-27 12:38:52 AM
What bothers me more than the whole breast feeding on the plane is that she is even bringing her infant on the plane at all.
Fark her.
There is nothing worse than being stuck in a giant tube with screaming crotch fruit for hours on end and being told that I should "understand". What I understand is that I respected my fellow travelers enough to not fly with my kids when they were infants.
If you have infants your life is at home, not gallivanting around the country/world.
If its international I should be allowed to punch her in the tit every hour on the hour so she suffers as well.
 
2014-02-27 12:41:14 AM
Bit of info, breastfeeding doesn't make breasts saggy. Pregnancy itself does that to a certain percentage whether they breastfeed after birth or not.

Im a pessimist. So I think this whole thing is a set up. I  mean with all the gay rights stuff going on  right now. No one is paying attention to the breastfeeding brigade. You know an issue like this comes up atleast once a year. What was the last one. FB not allowing photos of feeding. Its just a way to get attention and money.

bdub77: "Lindsay unfortunately you are not able to breast feed if you don't have a cover up," the airline representative tweeted. "I'm sorry."

Parenting blogs picked up on the story, noting that 45 states have laws allowing women to breastfeed in public. After hours of uproar, Delta...

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.

If the headline said that Delta would be allowing women to fly topless, you would all be knocking each other over to prove that you'd be first on that flight.

Every fark thread is filled top to bottom with variations of "Tits or GTFO". But if a woman exposes a square inch of breast to feed her kid, you all clutch your pearls in indignation. How DARE she expose a breast in public without the express purpose of titillating you?

Yes, airplane restrooms are cramped.  What a huge inconvenience.  But they are private.  When you are in a public place, you're going to have to deal with the general public and they usually aren't decent people.  And people, especially men, aren't known for rational thought when any woman lifts up her shirt or opens her blouse to expose her boobs under any circumstance.   Breast feeding is an intimate moment between a mother and her child.  Have some courtesy and don't share it with people in public.  There's more than one restroom on a plane.

spamdog: Who are these people who are really offended about public breastfeeding?


Well, I can't speak for everybody, nor would I presume to. Personally, I have no problem with breast feeding in public. However, it usually seems that the type of woman that insists on feeding in public without covering up is also the type that will pitch a shiat fit the moment anyone so much as glances at them. They want to be able to whip one out anywhere, but they also don't want anyone to see. Anyway, I guess I'm saying that my problem would come from them wanting to have their cake and eat it too. Want to feed in public? Fine. But you don't get to say jack shiat if someone looks at you. Don't want anyone to see you? Fine. Cover up or excuse yourself to someplace more private.

My son wasn't a fan of being covered up while feeding, so I bought a cover that was big enough to hold off of his face while still keeping everything covered. No, I don't expect others to do this. I'm just a private person. I never breastfed in public. If I was stuck on a plane for 6 hours, then yes I would have, but I was never in a situation like that.
