Breastfeeding is OBSCENE!

I stole this wonderful post from another amazing Christian momma blogger.  You can read her work at BOHOMAMAMOJO.

Women who breastfeed are constantly indecently exposing themselves. It really is quite offensive and someone should make it stop.

Look at this gal, did the modesty gene skip her?

Wait…Well, this is a bad example. Let’s try again.

Hmm…Just a minute. I’m sure I can find better ones than these…

Eh, still not offensive enough. I’ll check one more time.

That is better. LOOK AT THAT! I see about a half inch of boob. DISGUSTING.

UGH. Look at that indecency! She must be from some third world country to be exposed like that!

Now that’s just…There are no words to describe how inappropriate that is. Something needs to be done!

But why stop at breastfeeding women? There are boobs everywhere. Beware! If you thought the above photos were offensive, you WILL DEFINITELY be offended by the photos below.

Not this one, though. This one was in plain view on news stands and in mail boxes in 19 countries world wide!



Not this one, either. This one actually won an award!



Oh, and I guess this one is fine too. Everyone knows you can’t sell jeans without someone being topless.

Or beer, for that matter.



Or sunglasses.



Or movie tickets.

Or CDs!!!

You know something just isn’t right with the world when the first series of photos are seen as offensive yet the second series are applauded and paraded around the country for all the world to see.

People who live in glass bras:

Shouldn’t throw stones:

Which message is healthier?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Breastfeeding which is medically approved to give HUMANS the best start in life. . . or

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Images that promote unnatural beauty standards, sexual promiscuity, plastic surgery, and just plain true indecency?

Which would you rather your daughter live up to?

If you think women have the right to breastfeed their children no matter where they are, please re-post this. Let’s support mothers in the most important health choice they make for their baby! Breastfed babies have lower instances of obesity, asthma, allergies, certain childhood diseases, learning disabilities, and other health problems. For each woman who feels like she shouldn’t be breastfeeding right where she is, there is an innocent baby who is losing out. Breasts were put there for a reason. And as pretty as they may be to some, their original purpose was intended for the sustenance of our young. Support breastfed babies and their right to eat in public like the rest of us.

“What Would You Do?”

Well, I watched it. (And you can too on Hulu — “What Would You Do?”)

On last night’s episode of “What Would You Do?” ABC staged a scene of a breastfeeding mother in a cafe and a rude cafe manager telling her to stop or get out.  They staged the scene with a white mother, a black mother, and a teen mother.  All three had people come to her defense and support her right to breastfeed in public.

I’m very pleased by the responses, and it gives me hope that if I were in a similar situation, someone would help me.  It also made it clear to me that if I see an injustice like this, it is my duty — as a Christian — to stand up and set it right.

Skim, 2%, Whole…38DD?

I love hidden camera shows, and my favorite is ABC’s What Would You Do? This started as a segment on Primetime, but it was so popular, it quickly grew.  (You can view old segments on YouTube.)  Tomorrow’s episode hits on a topic that is very close to home: breastfeeding.  In tomorrow’s episode, ABC staged a scene in a cafe of a woman breastfeeding.  The woman is then approached by the manager who asks her to leave and starts a big scene about it.  What will the bystanders do?   What would you do?

I’m eager to see the responses because I had an incident myself regarding breastfeeding.  On Mother’s Day weekend, I went out to eat with my mother and one of my younger sisters.   As they began to eat, I placed Squirmy in my lap, covered us with my nursing cover, lifted my shirt, and began to feed him.  He was quietly eating, and I was talking with my family.  After a few moments, I began to realize that the couple and their teenage son sitting at the table beside us were staring.  I turned to meet their eyes, but they all quickly looked away.  The wife began to whisper to her husband about how “disgusting” it was and how they couldn’t believe I’d “do that in a restaurant.”

The old Rachel would’ve turned to them and said something nasty and rude; however, the saved Rachel just sat quietly and ignored them.  What should I have done or said?  In my state it is perfectly legal for me to breastfeed my child wherever I am.  Should I have explained this law to them?  Sound off in the comments — Do you have a great comeback?  Do you even agree with breastfeeding in public?
