Lactivism: The New American Social Issue

There's an article on CNN today discussing the topic of bared breasts—namely the picture of one published on the cover of a parenting magazine (shown in the link provided.) Some find it 'obscene,' while others find it okay. I agree with the latter on this issue (and not becuase I'm your stereotypical male  Wink ) that, in the interest of the child, the mother should be able to nurse in a suitable place when she needs to.

A quote from the article:

"I'm totally supportive of it -- I just don't like the flashing," she said. "I don't want my son or husband to accidentally see a breast they didn't want to see."

Which would those be?

I've always thought it interesting how most anything to do with violence or destruction is ok for display in America, but things having to do with love, nurturing, and reproduction of our species are horrible and dangerous and must be kept secret behind locked doors.

I mean, if someone comes and waves a gun in my face, well, that's no big deal. But heaven forbid someone waves a breast in my face! I might die! (wtf?)

 checkmark  Well said!

We glorify violence, death and destruction yet everyone gets up in arms about a boob or a naked butt... (remember the Janet Jackson fiasco?)

Makes no sense...

It would figure the US would see this as an issue. PCness once again rears its ugly head.

Bottom line...who cares?

I travel extensively and never see an issue with this in places like Canada or Europe. Why is it only the Americans who get their knickers in a twist over stuff like this?

I completely support the right of a mother to breast feed in public. I still think the Janet Jackson flap was much ado about nothing.....

Oh, boy ! You've just made Janet Jackson your enemy for life !!

Personally, I've never been offended by nursing mothers-but believe a woman who changes her sanitary pad (leaving the used one behind) while riding on a NYC subway is just a tad over the line.

If that makes me a puritanical American,so be it.

I'm a bit confused by the naked one with the guitar. Unless it's a gun guitar.

Please refer to the nasty old wrinkled up titty displayed at a particular Super Bowl game during a so-called Wardrobe Malfunction . . .  yuck 

Not that I give a hoot about a bare boob - but I do rather prefer them to be - ummmm - perky . . . that's a good word.

As for nursing a child in public - who cares. It's nature. I mean there are some places I'd rather not deal with it - restaurants in the middle of dinner comes to mind - but other wise - who cares. Cover Junior, cover the breast, be a bit modest and discreet and let Junior munch all s/he wants . . . afterall, it will keep Junior's trap shut and quiet.

That in and of itself would be worth a hundred naked titties and munching rug rats to me . . .

This Amerikin's knickers are definitely not in a twist about breastfeeding on display. With the high cost of almost everything, breastfeeding is a bonus for the entire family in terms of it's health benefits, economic sensibility (no formula to buy!) in addition to being a pleasurable (before baby teeth emerge) bonding experience for mother and child.

My god, some of the girls on that gunchicks site ... I think I threw up in my mouth a bit.  splat   crazy   scared 

As for feeding in public...as long as she has the kid and the boob covered by a towel or something go for it...everyones gotta eat...babys too  Smile

Sir, I  spit  on you. What a great, informative comment you made. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Now that I'm done spitting on you, and, indeed, also farting in your general direction, I must add that I think breast feeding is a great thing, and do not see how it could possibly upset someone. Lactation is great, even in a lagomorph. That, however, is for another thread.

Lastly, I submit that the idiot spell check is broken.
