So, I'm going to try this debate thing again...hopefully this time I will have written my post in a way that won't get too off track from the subject at hand....
So today I heard on the news that people are going to start getting fined for complaining about woman breast feeding in public.....Is the true?
As a woman and mother myself, my opinion is this: I myself was unable to breastfeed, and believe that most woman that do breast feed are very respectful and cover themselves in public while breastfeeding. To me, it's a very natural thing...But I have also learned that some people take great offense to this..especially in a restaurant setting. And surprisingly enough, it's other woman that are taking the offense....But if they are going to complain about a mother feeding their child in public and take offense to that, (even sometimes go as far as asking those that do not cover themselves to do so)...is it fair to say than, that these people should than also ask those woman that have reveling outfits on to cover up as well? I guess I do not see a woman breastfeeding her child in public as offensive and think that those that focus on it while out in public are the real "BOOBS"
