Come into the millenium people! I breastfed all of my babies and I always felt uncomfortable in public. People stared and one lady shook her head when she saw me once. I was always fully covered and even bought a cover-up specifically made for breastfeeding. It's just ridiculous!

Flaunting them sexually is approved of in this sick culture but using them the way they were intended makes the twisted people uncomfortable. Black is white, up is down, evil is good, good is evil.

Breast feeding in public, even if discreet, isn't wrong...it's just tacky.

Um, yea and he wouldn't think twice about it since he was breastfed as a baby himself as were his siblings, cousins, neighbors, etc.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the Ohio Supreme Court rulled in the late 90's that it's legal for women to go topless in public in Ohio. How can breastfeeeding in public be wrong?

I'm old enough to be a grandfather, and it does not bother me to see a mother breast-feed in public. It's certainly not as distressing as watching some people eat out in public who apparently were never taught table manners. Now THAT I object to.

If you really want to see "tacky", I strongly suggest that you look at a mirror.

Sounds to me like nobody stopped the woman from breastfeeding in public...she was just given the option of moving into a more private area had she preferred it.

Why to idiots like you always have to bring politics into everything. Go find a corner where you can sit and whine. Most of us are really sick of it.

Not only are you an idiot, but you also need to take some remedial English courses so that you are not advertising your ignorance.

No, the woman didn't believe it was an "option" but an order. And that's illegal.

Tacky? Really? It would be tacky to whip it out and expose while feeding, but most mothers have a blanket or some sort of coverup (I did) that hides everything. So what is tacky? Just because you know it's happening? You can't see anything. If that is how your dirty little warped mind works....
