WTF? "Mother Cited for Breast Feeding"
« on: July 29, 2005, 12:21:37 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.

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?
