Ok, so I am not a mother yet (not for a few more years) but today, I heard the most absurd comment about breastfeeding. This person that that she thinks breastfeeding is very incestual and thinks it is absolutely disturbing that people do it. Now. I’m all for people having their own opinions so all I said to her was “Thank you for your opinion?” and ended the conversation. But as I thought about it, it made me angry. INCESTUAL??? Really?? I just can’t understand that. I mean, does she know what insect means? Because breastfeeding is not sexual….
I’d love to hear peoples opinions whether they are pro breastfeeding or not! What do you think about this?

MrsJBaranick: That’s absurd! That’s the kind of statement that isn’t worth arguing against simply because it is too ridiculous to warrant further discussion. Geez!

I think that says more about her than anything…
It’s very bizarre to find breastfeeding sexual. Absolutely not sexual in any way whatsoever. If you think so you have problems.

MrsJBaranick: The only kind of people who have issues with things like breastfeeding, kissing thier own kids on the lips, etc….are the ones who have issues.
I got so irritated when I read that you shouldn’t kiss your own kid on the lips because it’s sexual? WTF?

That is the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard. Does she think childbirth is incestuous too? After all, the baby comes out through your vagina! What a strange person.

Unfortunately that’s not the first time I’ve heard someone say that. I personally think you’ve got a pretty sick mind if you think that.

Breastfeeding is what our breast are meant to do. I breastfeed my son everyday. If people have a problem with breastfeeding they don’t have to look or they can keep their opinion to themselves. I try to be considerate of other people so when I do go out with my son I try to pump or feed him in the car so other people won’t have to see. Or if I am at a doctor office I ask before I feed my son. But seriously breastfeeding isn’t sexual at all. I enjoy breastfeeding my son because it is a great bonding experience between mother and child.

I breasttfed two babies. Why would we be designed the way we are if we weren’t meant to breast feed? That was a dumb comments by that woman.

Our society is responsible for sexualizing breasts. I get so mad when people can’t see them any other way. Our breasts are meant to feed babies. Only someone with serious issues would think breastfeeding is an incestuous act.
