Okay, you people in the west take breasts waaaaaaaaaay too seriously... Im from Southern Africa, and there no one cares whether you're breastfeeding, where you're breastfeeding, how much of your boob you expose, let alone that its "offensive". In that respect, I'd say our culture is very supportive to breastfeeding mothers...

I'd like to see a list of things you shouldn't say to a bottle-feeding mother. You have no clue about why she's doing it.

"The fact is, I don't want my 12-year-old looking at some breast feeding pervert...." You have some serious hangups about breasts and sexuality. Get a grip. Feeding my child in the way god and nature intended is not sick. Babies can't wait to "go home" and eat, they have to do it when they're hungry. If you're so damn uptight, feel free to look away and stop starting at my boobs, you perv.

The fact is, we have a right to feed our children. That includes breastfeeding. If a mother can bottle-feed her child in one place, then I can breastfeed mine there. I wouldn't mind going somewhere a bit more out of the way, but I'm not going to feed my child in a disgusting restroom. I'm certainly not going to live as a hermit while my child brestfeeds as well. I'm not saying I whip my breasts out and swing them around either. I have some common decency. And I'd also have to say, if the restroom did not have child changing equipment, I'd change her on the bench in the middle of a crowded mall if I had to. My child will not suffer for any reason, any where, for anyone else's "comfort".

my sister had a guy ask her if he could TASTE her breastmilk once.

Advah, I know. It was appalling. Especially since I'm not "flashing" my boobs like they were probably thinking. There was nothing "indecent" showing at all. I was being as discreet as possible just to avoid those kind of comments. But they still arise. Awful. And Anon, that is awesome! I would tell people the same thing.

^I can't believe people would tell you do breastfeed in private! That's so stupid, insulting and ignorant! It's just a boob, for goodness' sake! And most of the time the baby's head is in front of it anyway!

When I nursed my daughter, I heard all of these, plus more. People can be so ignorant! The "when can I have those back" line is kind of humorous. When my boyfriend would say it to me I never really took offense to it, as he was always joking. He's always so proud to say his daughter was nursed for a full year!What really got to me was dirty looks from people when I would nurse in public, or those who would tell me to go somewhere private. I have never been so outraged in my life. It's ridiculous that in this day and age, some people are still considering it to be indecent
