Excuse me, but that's an absurd point of view to adopt. I'm not advocating or pushing anything that isn't a 100% perfectly normal activity. You, on the other hand, seem to have moral issues and wish to curtail that activity. If your morality or modesty prevents you from feeling comfortable around a woman breastfeeding her baby, suggest you remove yourself from such an environment or simply avert your gaze. Just because a mom is breastfeeding doesn't mean you have to look at it, if it makes you uncomfortable. And you've certainly no rights attempting to make live harder for mothers just because it clashes with your ideas of modesty or morality.
Not all cultures are as open as yours. So it's rather arrogant for you to demand others to accede to your beliefs now isn't it.
Seen them. Never used them (I'm a male). They work for some, not for others. Still stands that what works for one person doesn't work for everyone. So what's your point?
Point is, there are options so don't knock it until it's tried.
Ok, I see. You didn't really have a point. There was no knocking. On the contrary, very clear acceptance of it. But also clear acceptance that what works for one, doesn't work for all. This is the piece you seem to be struggling with.
The point on cultures is interesting. KLM is a Dutch Airline. The Dutch culture is (based on my experience) quite open and in general would be accepting of easy breastfeeding. Why should they change that culture as an airline because some of their customers are from a less open culture? In particular, why should they inconvenience female passengers who in Amsterdam can breastfeed openly, but because they are on a flight with different cultures they should have to change this? Why are they the ones who should be inconvenienced? Should the person who is more closed not have to make the accomodation?
KLM have made a big statement with their recent ad campaign encouraging people to fly less when they can. Companies and brands can have their own values and stances on things. It's brave and it's not always an easy option. But sometimes it's important to stand for something that you believe in. Seems to me like this is something KLM should have been a bit braver about, rather than trying to please everyone.
OR, maybe someone in their social media department was having a bad day at the office!!!!
Come with me, there's a place I want you to see, where the leaves are dark, I've got a hiding place in central park.
