How can people find a baby EATING in public offensive. Adults eat in public all the time. Some eat in such dicusting ways that I am sometimes offended but that doesn't give me the right to say they shouldn't eat in public. Breastfeeding is simply that: EATING!

Fantastic! Personally I find it odd how many people are comfortable with images of graphic violence and offended by seeing a woman nurturing and feeding her child. How messed up is that!

one of the comments on that page...
"I agree you should be able to breastfeed your baby anywhere. Be decent about it though. I was in church one sunday in the cry room. And I looked over and there was this lady breastfeeding her child with nothing over her. It was out in plain view. Plus the cry room is glass. The sad part is there was a bathroom two feet away. "

...anyone else notice the contradiction?...ugh...

So, after looking at all the images in that post, I have come to the conclusion that it is not actually breasts that are offensive. Clearly, it is that sweet, downy little baby head that is so horrible to look at. Why else would we want to throw a blanket over that, but be perfectly fine with Christina Aguilara's boobs splashed all over the front of a magazine proudly displayed front and centre at 7-11?

I think that breastfeeding is a beautiful thing regardless of how it's done. I also don't understand why some find it so offensive..that's just silly!!!

LOL. I will never get people being offended by breastfeeding or breastfeeding in public.
