For those of you that don’t know, August is NAtional Breastfeeding Month in the states. Well I just so happened to be looking through my newsfeed on Facebook and I saw one of my friends posted the most ignorant thing I have ever seen, literally comparing breastfeeding to pooping in public. Then, a bunch of her friends decide to chime in on how disgusting it is to see people breastfeeding and how if someone is still breastfeeding a two year old then they should be classified as a child molestor!!!!!!!!!!!! Let’s not forget to mention that none of these people have ever breastfed a child. Obviously, I flipped shit. WHY do we live in a world where people think it is more acceptable to watch a baby drinking soda opposed to breastmilk? It’s literally bewildering. If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. My daughter refeused to nurse under a cover and I wasn’t about to make her suffer from hunger so I could get to a “private” place for her to eat! Get real people. Pumping milk and hauling it around it not easy either, especially when you have the fresh stuff right there. I don’t know about anywhere else but in the U.S a mom can breastfeed whenever and wherever they please and it’s illegal for anyone to ask them to move or cover up. People need to stop oversexualizing breasts and the feeding of a baby. My god.
