WTF? "Mother Cited for Breast Feeding"
« on: July 29, 2005, 02:21:37 PM »
A woman was ticketed for breast feeding in Colorado b/c the park ranger said he was protecting them from "perverts and peeping toms." Honestly now. What's the big deal with this lately??  (Thankfully the ticket was dismissed b/c there was no law broken.) But still! Why is this an issue?

Yes there is a time and a place -- when and where the baby is hungry!
Honestly nursing doesn't have to "expose" anything, all the mom has to do is toss a blanket over her shoulder and no one can see anything.
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.

absolutely, and this is essentially what i meant.  i think there is a certain etiquette involved, i.e., use of a blanket in overtly public places.  it's the same thing with a cell phone -- many think that because they are common, cell phones can be used any which way.  not the case.

Try telling a 2 month old baby to hang on a minute when they're hungry...  :o  They simply can't be reasoned with!  Whenever, wherever, my baby didn't care.  My name was 'Chuck Wagon' and my job was to supply fresh, warm sustinence when demanded.  If I didn't have a blanket handy, I simply popped the baby up my shirt.  Voila!

This is only socially permissible if you allow passers-by access to the other one.

There's a scene in a movie ... Me Myself and Irene?
Ya know, where Jim Carrey decides he'll have a nipple too!

But of course!

for some reason this *&^% is particularly irksome at shopping malls.  I mean, I understand the little bastard is hungry, but can we find a more secluded place than the food court?
