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?

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.

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.

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."

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?

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

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.

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.

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

RogermcAllen: 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.


/honey, if you don't swallow we're going to get kicked off the plane for having a sex act in public


Fella, if you can find semen flan in the food court, feel free to eat it on the plane. Won't bother me. I'll be over here trying to get on GoGo inflight internet.

Ryker's Peninsula: 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.


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.

macaddict0: 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?

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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Ok, by this logic, I get to moon you during the flight.  Nothing is going to happen to you, and you don't have to look at it.  Look, all we are trying to say is to please take other people into consideration, not just you and your baby.  I know the kid is hungry, but really, we don't want to see your breast just as much as you don't want to see my ass; not because of its relation to sexuality, etc., but just because it makes us uncomfortable to see bare flesh that we don't usually see.  I don't know, thank our Puritan values for that ingrained self-loathing and self-denial.   But I digress from my point: just cover your tit up; I'm sorry your kid doesn't like a blanket over his head, but the rest of us do.

Some kids thrash about and won't latch on if you use a cover-up. My first baby was like that, so on planes I took the window seat and angled myself toward the window to nurse while my husband had the middle seat/buffer zone. Worked out pretty well. I dont particularly enjoy sharing my nipples with the world, but that's not nearly as important as keeping my child fed and happy.

Not making any effort at all to cover up? Not so good. It's not hard, and you don't have any other pressing concerns if you have time to breastfeed.

redflag: vincentfox: lemortede: If you have infants your life is at home, not gallivanting around the country/world.

Easy to say, if you don't live half the planet away from both families.  For many of us, keeping connected to our extended families means we MUST travel to see them, because they for damn sure aren't all coming to us.

You can't forgo seeing them for 1-2 years?



Forgo seeing my family for years because some delicate flower on my flight might be more of a crybaby than my infant ever was? Not farking likely.

I've been a childless passenger on many flights that had infants on board, including long-hauls; it is just not that big a deal.

If women nursed out their elbows no one would give a shiat. Since it's a boob it has to be covered? Please diaf.
 
2014-02-27 05:14:41 AM  
On the one hand, I don't see why it's a big deal to just cover up with one of those little airline blankets or something.  If it really bothers people, it seems only courteous, and it's hardly difficult to accomodate.

On the other hand, I can't fathom why people are actually bothered by it.  I will never discourage women from taking their boobs out in public.  It isn't difficult to ignore them if you're honestly that offended by seeing a little bit of areola.

Overall there are no winners here.  Seems to me that this is a case of two groups of people finding reasons to get pissy and be whiny little biatches.  Both of you STFU, grow a spine, and deal with it.  Seeing a titty isn't going to send you to hell, and it isn't a huge burden to be considerate enough not to make people uncomfortable.

There are a ridiculous number of paintings depicting Mary breast feeding Jesus. She wasn't covered up. If it's good enough for the Son of God it should be good enough for our society.

No you're not. Who gives a sh*t if some mom wants to breastfeed? What I'm sick of is the screaming lunatics who are professionally offended. The ones who complain like it's ther job.

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!!!"

the ha ha guy: 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'.

Just curious. Is it possible to want to bring attention to an issue that concerns you without being an attention whore? Obviously there are bored and/or insecure people who just want attention for its own sake, but how do you distinguish between them and people who want to draw attention to a perceived injustice?

My wife breastfed both our kids.  I can't remember a single time where she didn't have something to cover with, and wherever possible she'd do it in private.  It was a complete non-issue.  If I slept with your mom and had a medical condition that made my wang leak pus that had to wiped 20 times a day, could I pull out my crank next to these breastfeeding moms and clean off Little Elvin because I was doing it in a "non sexual medical" capacity and not in a "creepy guy you're stuck next to on the plane going to spray a batch on you" capacity ?

I demand equality. I want free drinks and to be able to act like I am entitled to lots of stuff. I want to be able to be out in public with parts of myself exposed that would normally be illegal. I will not accept that I live in a society filled with people who are not me who have different opinions to me. I will not accept that I might have to in the slightest adapt my behaviour because I am in public.

I am woman.

I am a mother.

Won`t someone please think of the children?

I say stop using your child as a political weapon. Your kid does not care whether you are in a private room or out on the main drag as long as they have a nipple in their mouth. If they do care they are too old to breastfeed.

My point being that it seems `equality` these days isn`t very equal. Imagine being a man and asking for the reciprocal thing (which should be fine in a proper framework of equality) and reacting the same way, wanting to get parts of yourself out in public that are normally illegal to get out and being offended that someone asks you to cover up. They haven`t asked you to stop what you are doing, just cover up.

Now imagine you got so offended by being asked to cover up that you got it into the news.

The headline would be `crazy pervert demands right to expose himself to children`

Just because women have been and continue to be heavily oppressed in parts of the world does not mean that every desire you have that gets thwarted is a huge example of male domination. That is just childish and petulant and diminishes the perception of actual abuses, which are far too common. Genital mutilation for one. Forced marriage as a child is another. Can you see how getting `please do that privately` into the news is not helping when other women want `A gang of us are going to beat and rape you just because you are outside` to get into the news? Also just because some women are living in horrendous situations does not mean that men are all living in paradise either. There are many men who are subject to domestic violence. emotional abuse etc. Much worse than simply being asked to cover up.

Getting offended at simply being asked to cover up (the airline should provide covers or a private room) is not something to get upset about unless you are acting like an entitled coont.

Get a sense of perspective.

If they hold up protest signs next to an entrance, I'll read the signs and consider that the place of business may have committed some wrong. If the message sounds credible and they're willing to discuss the issue in a civilized manner, I might even switch to another store.

If they hold up protest signs in front of an entrance, and physically prevent both customers and employees from entering the place of business, I'll read the signs and mentally file away that group alongside PETA and others who ultimately do more harm than good. When the police arrive and arrest them, I'll literally start clapping and encourage other customers to do the same as a form of semi-silent counter-protest against that group, even when their cause is one I support 100%.

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.

First of all, it's not illegal to have a breast out and breastfeed. Second of all, it's legal for women to be topless in some places even if they're not breastfeeding (NYC).

So it's legal already. The only issue is for some reason, you just can't accept that.

Why? It's just a boob.

Cerebral Ballsy: Second of all, it's legal for women to be topless in some places even if they're not breastfeeding (NYC).


It's legal for men to be topless everywhere in the country, but thousands of businesses have a 'no shirt no service' policy.
It's legal to sit down at a table everywhere in the country, but thousands of restaurants have 'tables are for paying customers only' policy.
It's a constitutionally protected right to speak out against others.

If a group of men barge into a restaurant, refuse to order anything, strip down to their waist, and scream at the top of their lungs that they have a legal right to be there and are breaking no laws, I'm pretty sure they'd all be arrested for trespassing. But when 'mommybloggers' do exactly that, even when none of them even have a young child present in the first place, it's perfectly fine, because reasons.

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.

Pokey.Clyde: 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.


Wrong.  I didn't cover up because it was useless...once kids can grab something, they will rip it off, flail it around or play with it.  It's very, very easy to be discreet without having to cover up.  I never went topless, and I never once biatched or caused a scene.  I fed my children in public places when it was necessary to keep them from annoying everyone around us with their screams.  Most mothers aren't trying to prove a point...they are trying to get in and out without bothering people.  I wish I could have pumped and taken bottles with me in public, simply because it's easier, but I was never one of those people who have enough 'left over' to fill up the freezer....or even a couple of bottles.  It is what it is, but basically, my main goal was to not annoy the people around me if at all possible.

Interesting way to look at it. 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? This puritan shiat has gone way too far. The people who are so uptight about seeing a naked boob need to address it with their God who intelligently designed the milk/boob/nipple delivery system in the first place.

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.

The argument boils down to this. Is a child's right to eat more important than an arsehole's right not to have to accidentally see a boob. I'm all in favor of no bunched panties, but this time I gotta side with the mommy bloggers.

Uh, no...most kids squirm while they are eating.  It's a thing they do.  And I breastfed one child until she was 6 months old and the other until he was 18 months...so no, I've never breastfed a 2 year old.  They squirm, fidget, and yank on everything they can grab.  It has nothing to do with how hungry they are, they just don't like to be still.  And it's possible to feed a child without exposing yourself even without a cover, which some people here don't seem to get.  Breastfeeding without a cover doesn't automatically mean you are flashing everyone or going topless...it just means that you can see the baby and usually nothing else.  Most of the time, it doesn't even look like the kid is eating...it just looks like the mother is holding him because you can't see anything else.  The only way anyone would have seen ANYTHING when I was breastfeeding would have been if they had been about 3 inches from my chest, and I would have noticed.

So much THIS^^^

Yes, breastfeeding is natural. That doesn't mean that I want to watch. My wife breastfed all of our kids, often in public, and never had a single issue because she was discreet. 99% of the time, the people around us had no idea that it was even happening. This whole "Hey, look at me! I can complete a biological function that roughly half of the mammals on the planet can do! See how special I am??" crap is just annoying. Sit down, shut up, and cover up. You don't have to go full burka and drape a bed sheet over yourself, you don't need to be shunned to a private milking chamber, just discreetly cover the relevant bits and don't demand that I pay attention to you. Your ability to produce milk really isn't that impressive to me. My dog can do that, and she licks her own asshole. I'll bet you can't do that*.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
