CorvusCorax:  That’s why I said there is a LEARNING process. Also, you still haven’t answered how you feel about the mentally challenged.

Tanleggedjuliet:  I’m sure she is, but it’s actually funny to see how dumb and intolerant she makes herself sound. Her arguments are laughable.

CorvusCorax:  Every single point you have made has been shot down so now you’re taking this thread away from it’s original discussion. This thread is not about toddlers throwing fits, as you put it, which by the way are perfectly normal behaviours for a developing child. Of course, I expect when you were a child, you behaved perfectly 100% of the time.

 

The thread is about breastfeeding, which typically applies to children who do not have the means to communicate with words to express their needs. It is a need to be fed. Without feeding, the child will not survive. Therefore, to avoid that happening, the child cries, the mother feeds her child, problem solved.

 

“Mothers should keep their boobs and their brats to themselves.”

 

No, perhaps you should keep your shameful, invalid opinions to yourself.

Mrs_Purple:  I agree with you through most of this but her opinion is valid. In the sense that she has it and expressed it. It’s her argument that is shameful and invalid. 

Everyone is allowed their opinion, but her arguments are rather ludicrous and leave much to be desired. Carry on!

Honestly my opinion on the matter is similar to my opinion on all the other hot button issues: Is it hurting you? No? Then butt out and let them do their thing. To moms who breast feed; public, private, covered, or uncovered, more power to you for letting your little one have unlimited access to your body. 🙂

Mrs_Purple:  The thread was derailed because someone wanted me to elaborate on the “keeping their brats to themselves” comment. So I did. Kids are brats from infancy onwards. 

It wasn’t derailed because I was running out of arguments or because my points were shot down. They were not shot down. That you feel public breastfeeding is completely acceptable does not change that public breast-feeding is in poor form. If I was the only person who held this belief then it would not be such a contested issue in this country.

CorvusCorax:  But this thread is about breastfeeding, as a PP stated most children are breastfed up until they’re a year old, and don’t start having tantrums until they’re at least one and a half. So, they are not brats while being breastfed. Therefore, in my opinion, that comment is irrelevant to this particular thread. 

 

Why do you feel it’s in poor form? How does a breastfeeding mother and child affect you when you can simply walk away, look at something else, leave the room etc? So is it ok to oppose something as strongly as you do because other people in your country do? You shouldn’t allow society’s views to dictate your feelings so much.
