I assume she probably drove to the grocery store and should have taken care of the baby before entering the store in my opinion. Yeah everyone has rights these days. There aren't many women that would have done what she did. She is just one of those thoughtless liberated beatches.

As one of those " thoughtless liberated bitches," I breastfed both of my kids till they were a year old... If I was out and they were hungry, then they got fed. Nothing "nasty" about it... If you're hungry when you go out, you get to eat too... Why should an infant be any different??

Way to go, Mom, tell them like it is. Breastfeeding is such a natural thing to do, why not in public if the occasion warrants it? Women show their envy and men show their immaturity if they complain about this practice. Of course, if you lived in Tahiti or Nairobi, you would get used to it.

Oh, I see how it is. You want to have YOUR opinion about the subject but you don't want others to have an opposing opinion. WHAT a HYPOCRITE! Jeeze woman, you need to find another hobby. I see from all your posts you try to run this Topix site. How pitiful.

Everyone's opinion is not the same, and although a mom may have the RIGHT, she should also consider the fact that others may disagree with whether it's appropriate.

Until it's considered acceptable any time, any place, people better face the reality that not everyone will agree with what they're doing. Actions have consequences. Period.

If someone doesn't like what the mother was doing, don't look. It's as simple as that, right?

By that same logic, if a someone doesn't like what Kasey posted on his twitter account, don't follow. Same rules apply.

The big difference is that Kasey is a public figure who also represents millions of dollars of sponsorship backing. THAT'S why he has to care. If he was just some old joe blow like you, no one would care about his opinion. But he found out real quick he should have just kept his fingers off his phone/computer keys. Why do you think he apologized? Because he had suddenly had an epiphany about breastfeeding in public? No. It's because he found out by the backlash that people are watching him and reading him and just like Tiger Woods showed us that he wasn't invincible by the loss of major sponsors which cost him millions upon millions, Kasey could find out real quick that he's not worth as much as he thinks.

Im sure there was a purpose in comparing Kasey to some 'old joe blow' but it can hardly be an effective comparison since you don't know me and I don't have an opinion. But that's neither here nor there. As for the rest of what you typed, it's kinda obvious, but I never argued the effect of what he did, nor do I see your purpose for explaining this 'big difference' you mentioned.

Kaseys right the only women who would bear her breast in public is someone trolling for a date otherwise she would have covered herself up or excused herself to take care of the child. Sorry I do not want your bodily fluids on my groceries. where do you think the milk goes that is to much for their mouth...yea ... show some class honey.
