I'd much rather see a baby being breastfed in a stadium than some obnoxious drunk wielding beer bottles. I don't know how many horror stories I've heard about those jerks at local football games. They hit people who are pulling for the other team. They're dangerous. That's what I wouldn't want to pay to see. Babies? Bring them!

How about the "everyone else gets to eat in public/at the game" point....

Also, your penis will not swell and become infected if you don't masturbate every 2.5 hours.

This thread makes me want to laugh. A lot. I cannot really honestly believe that mature adults in the 21st century would possibly have any problem whatsoever with seeing women nurse their children. It certainly shows what a Puritanical double standard still exists in such an over-sexualized culture. Very sad indeed.

Why is it, I wonder, that many of the same men who can't get enough of the female breast as a sexual object are so riled about a woman breastfeeding in public? If you become fathers, will you tell your wife that she should let your child scream, cry, and go hungry rather than feed it publicly? Or will you refuse to let her leave the house while she's lactating?

I hope y'all are a bit more understanding of your own present or future wives and children than you're being now.

I could not agree more. I cannot believe we even have to have this discussion!!!

I am wondering how many have not had the experience, hence the viewpoint....

Side story....when I was a new teacher, right in the middle of a parent conference the parent decided to nurse as the baby started to cry...at the time I was like, WTF over? Now as a father I have a completely different opinion on it.

Unfamiliarity does breed uncomfortability with just about anything so I can sorta understand but people need to get over it! A little self-awareness could easily lend the viewpoint that 'hey, this is weird for me but I know it's because it's a new experience and I'm not used to it but since women have been breastfeeding (publicly!) since the beginning of time the problem must be in me, not with breastfeeding in public, and I'll probably get used to it." Now is that really so hard?

very recently on a plane ride I was sitting next to a woman who had a baby and a young boy with her, and she was flying without her husband. The baby was crying and screaming and I was so relieved when the lady just whipped her boob out right there and nursed the baby.
I wasnt offended
I was offended by the fact that the family smelled like garlic But the boob didnt bother me

I don't think you even have to be a parent, to be honest when I first started seeing women breast feeding in public it felt "strange" to me because it was new and something I'd never experienced before. Now I don't give it a second thought, it's something I see more often and I'm used to it. Now I think it's rather beautiful to see a woman nursing her baby. It's extremely rare to see a woman who doesn't do it in a discreet way. Yet you see women flashing their breasts at Mardi Gras or whatever and people think that's somehow funny and/or acceptable

And some people will actually pay for porn that shows lactating women but seeing a breast used for its intended purpose is disgusting and/or offensive. Go figure.

I think it's neither funny or acceptable.
