Cerebral Ballsy: EmmaLou: As a woman, I don't want to see your kid suckling. Yes, it's normal and natural, but I still don't want to see your bare breast. Put something between that special moment and the people around you: a receiving blanket, a t shirt, a scarf...whatever.

I'm guessing these ladies who want to breastfeed in the open are the same ladies who don't like public nudity...for the children.

So? Look away. Problem solved.


Next time I'm on a plane I'll piss and shiat myself without leaving my seat. It's natural! Just look away! Problem solved.

squirrelflavoredyogurt: Not to mention, for a grown man to complain about having to see a naked boob sounds completely homosexual. The problem is, I know a few homosexuals, and not one of them is so uptight they'd complain that their right to not have to see a boob is more important than a child's right to eat.


So why does your Weeners come across as the most homophobic thing in this thread?

/right, I'm sure you have gay friends...

So, you would drink shiat and piss?  Gotcha.

squirrelflavoredyogurt: Was it not Delta that denied a child his food to save the other passengers from the horrible fate of maybe having to accidentally see a boob?


According to "The Leaky Boob", yes.

According to Delta, they attempted to make reasonable accommodations for all present while still allowing the child to eat.

/I entirely agree that mothers have an inherent right to feed their children, but I expect this mommyblogger was causing a scene long before anyone said one word to her.

lemortede: 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.


The plus side is that the baby is less likely to be screaming if mommy is breastfeeding it. Babies/young children tend to get ear pain during takeoff & landing, which makes them fussy, crying, screaming.

And sometimes it's necessary to take a baby/young child on a plane, such as in a family emergency where driving isn't an option.

harlock: 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?

-M


Just America where the prospect of a partially naked boob is for some reason a big deal.

I think it's possible to believe pissing is natural without also having to believe that drinking piss is natural.  I could be wrong.

For those who keep insisting on "look away if you're offended", why not try something like this:
i.imgur.com

With the exception of the slightly gathered fabric above the babby's head, there's no hint of breastfeeding whatsoever, and no exposed breast skin at all. Babby is uncovered while eating, others can't see anything to be offended, and unless the mother comments about the breastfeeding, most people would just think the babby is sleeping.

By comparison, mommybloggers tend to take this aproach:
i.imgur.com

They're intentionally blocking an entry door, they (according to other pictures of the same event) literally put signs to draw attention to themselves, and despite the entire point of their protest, only a couple of the babbys present appear to be breastfeeding.

Between these two pictures, I think it's pretty clear who cares about the welfare of their child, and who just wants the attention as a perpetual victim.

I always make an effort to see both sides of an issue. This is one of the few where there is just nothing, at all, nada on the side of those saying breastfeeding is icky, it offends me, do it in the public toilet, mind if I pee in public, maybe I should whip out my appendage and wave it around.

Nothing.

Grow up
Really, just get over yourselves.

lennavan: 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.

Urine is significantly more sterile and thus safe than breastmilk.  So if safety is your metric, then I should be allowed to pee wherever I want.


I suppose if the aircraft lavatory, a place specifically designed with the singular purpose of allowing passengers to relieve themselves so they don't have to piss and shiat in the cabin (which would take the aircraft out of service for cleaning,) were inoperable, you could safely and legitimately live out your fantasy of pissing wherever you wanted in an airplane. Yes.

The lavatory is not designed for use as privacy room for mothers to nurse children, but you knew that already.

So if we were to add a breastfeeding room on aircraft, you'd be happy?

How about we ban under-twos from flying as a safety hazard and side step the whole issue?
 
2014-02-27 02:25:21 PM  
I have absolutely no problem with women breast feeding in public as long as they quit getting all pissy when I sit down next to them and watch.
 
2014-02-27 03:10:43 PM  
Why even ask? Go on your flight, feed your child, NBD. Smells like someone wanted Delta to make a public statement and Delta was dumb enough to pick door #2.

I don't care either way as the breast feeding isn't an issue IMO.

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

What are they, mormons? Other women who are resentful? What?

That public nudity laws should exist is a debatable topic,  The fact that they do exist means that nobody should be exempt from them.  There is no situation where its acceptable for a male to get naked, why should females get a pass?


Wait, women are getting totally naked to breastfeed, now?? Or, are you saying a man exposing his breast is illegal most places?

Personally I really don't give a shiat about breastfeeding - it affects me not even a little when someone sits next to me and breastfeeds - but at the same time I can see both sides.

"Icky" is by definition not rational. But being polite is largely about catering to the irrational personal/cultural sensibilities of other people to help them feel more comfortable. It's a little kindness we offer each other to keep society running more smoothly, that we don't demand evidence of a health or safety hazard before we're willing to make the slightest concession to the standards of others. Yes, you have every *right* not to participate in that, but intentionally discomfiting or annoying people when it would cost you virtually nothing in any way to make them more comfortable is more or less the definition of being rude.

This cuts both ways with regard to breastfeeding on a US airline; a polite breastfeeding woman makes at least a token effort to make the people around her more comfortable (which normally amounts to being discreet), and the polite people around her do what they can to make her more comfortable (which normally amounts to paying no attention to the breastfeeding). She knows that some of them probably don't want a close-up unobstructed view, and they know that she probably doesn't want them to stare/comment. If you take a sincere "who gives a shiat what anyone else thinks" approach to life, great, but you can hardly be surprised when you're deemed rude by others.

tillerman35: 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."


I'd rather have someone who didn't feel the need to bring their infant on a plane.

Dragonflew: I'd rather have someone who didn't feel the need to bring their infant on a plane.


No no, the precious crotch dropping is welcome everywhere! Everyone loves the thing just like the parents!
It doesn't matter if it screams, runs, or pokes you constantly. It's a Snowflake!

On topic, I see no difference between this and a guy popping out his tool just to relax. Nothing sexual, just for comfort.
Unless you can explain the difference, your opinion is completely worthless.
