That's because those fat guys are funny and tend to be pretty entertaining people. If a 400lb guy is willing to go shirtless and enjoy himself, all the power to him. I'll high five the next one I see.

Ohhhhh, I see. Since they're "funny," it's okay! Of course! Now I see the light!

So his tits flopping around arent as offensive as a partially exposed female breast. Female..... Like the gender that is technically supposed to have them

ANd if that fat shirtless guy is behaving inappropriately at Fenway and I am there with my 7 year old and 4 year old....I will gladly be entertained while security escorts him out.

I did not pay for my season tickets to have some drunk, be the entertainment, when I brought my kids to be entertained by the game.

And before you tell me a four year old cannot enjoy the game, you should meet my kids, who can tell you the lineup, position, and where the play is when there are runners on base.

The people in my section know, when and how to behave. They ALL treat my kids right when I bring them to the game.

On the other hand, if Johnny Damon did his naked pullups in centerfield... now THAT would be highly entertaining

Now I can't concentrate

I can just imagine you Dreadsox. Turning to your 4 year old and pointing at the half naked fat guy with paint on his chest, gyrating to imaginary music and hooting up a storm.
"Look, lets laugh at the fat man together because its nice to laugh at fat people"

IN 1988 when Jim Rice punched the Coach Joe Morgan in the dugout because he was pinch hit for....

A game or two later, fan jumps the rail runs to second base, drops his drawers, and the words Jim Rice are written on his ass.

But, that was back in the day when I WOULD never have taken my kids to fenway. That was back when blow up dolls and not beach balls were batted around the park.

If anyone has a problem with breastfeeding, that is THEIR OWN problem. Not the mother's, nor the child's. Deal with it.


Ladies, go for it. I think breastfeeding is healty for the baby, good for the bond between mother and child and good for showing to men that there is more than drinking beer and eating hotdogs.

Personaly i think it is great that woman feed their baby in public because it shows that the baby is far more important to her than the public opinion.




BTW, now i am in Dallas. Where can i buy football tickets ?

I used to like going to mariners games with my dad and watching lou pinella pitch a fit all over the field. My dad made sure I knew that it was unacceptable behavior before we went ahead with laughing our asses off
Seriously, when you see the coach toss the bat rack out of the dugout, pull up first base and throw it, and kick his hat around the pitching mound.....how do you not just die laughing?

People sholud not be offended by breastfeeding.
Kids see their moms breastfeeding all the time. They don't think anything of it until some adult puts the stupid idea into their heads that it's wrong, dirty or shameful.

There is no inappropropriate place to breastfeed a baby. A baby must be fed and a mother must leave the house sometimes and breastmilk is the best thing for a baby. I think the fact that so many Americans have an issue with it is just another example of the puritanical backwardness of this country. We're way ahead in some respects but in other ways, so distorted and weird.

You find THAT entertaining? yech!

You get angry for paying $100 to see a woman quietly nursing her baby under a blanket, but LIKE paying $100 to see and disgustingly fat man waving his arms and belly fat all over the place?

You know what I find entertaining? You've probably "seen" a dozen woman breastfeeding in public and never even realized it because they tend to be so discrete.

If they keep it discreet, I have no problem with it. But breast shouldn't be exposed.

Somehow, I knew this example might lead to a "how can you compare breastfeeding to masturbation?" type response.

DaveC isn't comparing the two.

Given the arguments (natural, function, need) in favor of public breastfeeding, if you simply substitute "masturbation" for "breastfeeding" and the defenses (don't look) you get the same result (public masturbation is okay).

However, no one would seriously support public masturbation. Thus, the arguments proposed so far are flawed as they cannot be applied on a consistent basis.
