I'll be honest normally G4R has made it a policy to stay away from these type of topics along with politics and religion. Why?... Because there is no definitive right answer only opinions. To try and sway someone to your method of thinking is not our goal and simply foolish in the grand scheme of things.
One of our staffers posted this on his personal page and it garnered so many responses we had to post it here. The majority of comments are split on this. It's been a hot topic for decades and proponents on both sides have done demonstrations for their cause. Will this debate be settled in a short blog? No... but I'll try and shed some general insight on my take on this issue.
Breast feeding is a natural action by mothers. For our readers it's a no-win argument on either end. 2 ppl can look at the exact same thing and draw two different conclusions. What one sees as indecent exposure in a public place, another sees as a beautiful thing. On the flip side I've seen women whip out a breast and have it exposed for minutes before bringing up their child to feed. Their general response? "If ya haven't seen one before... oh well?" Again I'm not here to judge.
A mother will fight vehemently over her child and do anything to nurture him/ her.... even at the expense of others or any binding laws. Ya ever see a wild animal try and snatch an egg from a mother?... its not pretty lol. Maternal instincts come out and I salute any mother for that, wish more moms had this kind of passion for their kids. In the end its just ppl with varying opinions, nothing more nothing less. Would love to hear your comments!
