When Will People Learn???

Breastfeeding in public is legal people! Learn this! These stories are on the news all the time. Some employee tells a woman that she can't feed her baby, it gets on the news, the company has to apologize...why can't people just understand that it is legal to breastfeed anywhere that it is legal for a woman to be??? It doesn't seem like a tough concept for me but it was for the hairstylist in this story.

Here is a wonderful article by the even more wonderful Christopher West regarding this topic. The problem is our over sexualized society...

Isn’t it interesting that the part of the world producing the most pornography and exporting it to the rest of the globe has seemed to lose all sense of the true meaning of the human breast? What a commentary on the sad state of our sexually wounded culture! Breasts have been so “pornified” that we can fall into thinking that even their proper use is shameful. In other words, we have been so conditioned to see a woman’s body through the prism of lust that we find it very difficult to recognize the purity and innocence of breast-feeding.
H/T Mama Lulu!

It's quite a shame that people are treated that way when they want to do a natural thing with their child.

When I was breastfeeding, I was always certain to keep myself covered - not for the benefit of other, but because I'm modest in that way. I would breastfeed just about anywhere... so long as I was covered. (Including next to complete strangers/men on an airplane.)

But to be treated poorly by someone who is supposed to be a professional is disgraceful. Regis should have fired that woman then made it very public.
