“Seriously what is wrong with you? How much hate is in your heart?”

“Seriously? I am expressing my opinion it has nothing to do with the amount of hate a person has within their heart, of which by the way I have none.”

“I hope you never come close to knowing how you would handle a situation like this. What went wrong in your life to think it is ok to judge a girl that just had her life ripped apart?”

“Oh I have and I know how I handled that situation and it wasn't even close to smiles and giggles”

“You clearly have no idea how trauma works. Any one- male or female of any age could very well have done exactly what she did. I prey that you never come within a million miles of being able to know for sure how you would handle a situation like this. Her mother and brother were tortured and killed and for you to make a statement like you have with no evidence to back you is beyond heartless and cruel.”

“Hmm, how does trauma work?
Hows does it work for a narcissistic, sociopath
and
How does it work for a true victim?”

“I'm sorry you either can't or unwilling to see how making women breastfeed in private makes breastfeeding harder and discourages women from doing so. If you are unwilling to try to understand the benefits of breastfeeding for us as a society then I'm sorry for you.”

“Sorry about that but the health of others trumps your discomfort. You should know that increasing breast feeding benefits you as well, healthier kids means less of a drain on social services- less of a tax burden which is a big part of why these laws exist.”

“look, they can do it all day long, i just prefer not to see it. and because i am not child friendly, guess what? i don;t have to see it! but if and when i do, i am not going to march up to some lady minding her own business and demand she stop right now. i'll just move along.”

“Yes, I would have as she is an employee and so I would have given her a pass even if I didn't agree with the law. And no it isn't just about the law because I think it is really important to make it as easy as possible for women to breast feed. Covering up can make breastfeeding more difficult. I know from experience as I always covered up in public but it often was a struggle. In the end, the child's needs are more important than other people's discomfort. And by the way there are huge public health benefits to breast feeding that help not only the children but everyone's bottom line- healthier kids= less need for services.”

DrErvinTrapp on Aug 8, 2013 at 23:38:34

“You are obviously passionate about this subject, having the perspective of having first hand experience, for which I greatly commend you. And, you are correct in your assertion that the result is healthier children, thus, less need for healthcare services. At least on the whole. My beautiful wife also covered up in public, and I did consult her opinion on this matter. Her feeling is that it just shows a touch of class to be cognizant of others, and the trouble to cover up is but a small price to ensure others rights are valued just as much as hers, while not depriving her baby of optimal nourishment. All win in this scenario, but I honor your right to your opinion.”

“The reason that people get worked up about it is because of how important it is to encourage (and not discourage) breastfeeding. Increasing breast feeding rates and length of time that women breast feed have huge public health benefits. The more people become used to seeing this the less of a big deal it will be. Covering up is also not always so easy. I think you should really question why breastfeeding disgusts you.”

“I nursed with a cover up too and I used to feel similarly but I think in part because of my experience of using a cover and having it often not be easy, I think it is really important that we as a society change to make breastfeeding uncovered as well as covered socially acceptable. It is more important to encourage breastfeeding with all the benefits it brings than to keep the status quo. As it becomes more common, the more it will become destigmatized and people will no longer see it as a big deal. After all breastfeeding in public with a cover wasn't always so accepted as it is now.”

“Actually they have. By standing up for their rights, they may have made it easier for other women to breast feed there. In terms of the other woman she may have been polite but it is unprofessional to not know the law. Once she asked and the woman asserted her rights she should have left it alone. Especially since she was legally wrong and essentially infringing on the rights of that couple. The reason these laws exist is because encouraging breast feeding provides real public health benefits and helps the governments bottom line.”

“Actually it can be a problem. Covering up can make breastfeeding more difficult and not all babies cooperate. It is also easier for people to avert their eyes than for a woman to cover up.”

“The reason why people make a big deal about covering up, is because it makes breastfeeding harder. It is not always easy to cover up and babies don't always cooperate. Because of the health benefits of breastfeeding, our society needs to continue to do everything possible to make it as easy as possible for women to breastfeed. It is really in everybody's best interest.”

“Actually there is a difference. It is easier for people to avert their eyes than it is to cover up. It may not seem like a big deal but asking a woman to cover up discourages breastfeeding by making the act harder and more uncomfortable. The benefits of breastfeeding are huge not just for each individual child but for all of us. And not just for altruistic reasons, healthier children need less services which means they are less of a tax burden. It is a win win for everyone, which is one of the reasons that the laws allowing women to breastfeed whereever often specify they don't have to be covered. The point is to make it as easy as possible to encourage more women to breast feed and to breast feed for longer.”

“If you hadn't noticed, this woman was up at the counter where everyone conducting business at this place, could be expected to be. But again, carrying your argument to its logical end. Why do we require clothes at all if it so much easier to avert eyes than to cover up?

And if the act is so beneficial, why not require women to breastfeed their children? According to your logic, we all have an interest in allocating fewer tax dollars to the problems caused by not doing so.”

“I am glad that you had the experience that you had and while I think women should cover up if it makes them feel more comfortable, I think it is important for women to not be or feel forced to. Covering up isn't so easy for everyone and honestly it much easier for people to avert their eyes than for a woman to cover up. The more we as a society become normalized to breastfeeding the less that people will feel uncomfortable about it. I also say this as a mother who was initially uncomfortable with mothers breastfeeding uncovered and always covered up when breastfeeding in public. I also found breast feeding with a cover challenging at times and my baby didn't always cooperate. I know it would have been easier if I hadn't been so worried about what other people would think and had simply been concerned with what was best for my son. By the way faved your comment by accident, not that you don't have a right to your opinion, I just don't share it.”

“By comparing breastfeeding to taking a dump or picking your nose you are comparing it to things that disgust people. Making women feel like breastfeeding is disgusting and something you have to hide discourages it. So while you may not identify as being against breastfeeding, you clearly don't support it.”

“It is not yesterday if women are still being discouraged from breastfeeding in public. And yes being asked to cover up discourages women from breastfeeding. Covering up is not always easy or possible if you an uncooperative baby. Yes some women may appear militant but this is actually a cause that has real solid benefits. The more women are encouraged to breast feed by making it socially acceptable to do so whereever without having to worry about covering up, the more children will be breastfed and that is best for everyone.”

“Yes but this is a case where any exposure is in the service of breast feeding. The importance of breast feeding means that making it as easier as possible needs to be the goal. Covering up can make breast feeding more difficult and babies don't always cooperate. Behaviors good and bad get normalized the more often people are exposed to them. This is a case where as more people get used to women breast feeding in public, the less that this type of exposure will appear sexualized and will eventually be seen as the natural and healthy act that it is.”

“I see nothing "sexualized" about it. What I see is another nipple-Nazi trying to get attention by insisting that everyone at the rec center--including the school-age kids it was full of that day--sign on to her agenda. I see no difference between this and someone who talks loud enough to create attention and then hides behind her "free speech". The issue is not rights--it's manners.”

“I think it is important to make breastfeeding as easy as possible. While there is nothing wrong with a woman covering up because it makes her feel more comfortable, it is just simply easier to breast feed not using a cover- and sometimes babies don't exactly cooperate either. While I do think some mothers can approach it a bit like a crusade and I can see where that might not be free from narcissism- I would say the cause is worth it. The more we can create a society where women feel comfortable breastfeeding whereever- will help encourage more moms to try it and stick with it and I think that is more important than other people's discomfort that can be solved by looking away. As far as children seeing this, the more children are exposed to healthy practices the more it becomes normalized and part of accepted culture- which I think is a good thing in this case.”

“Actually it can be a hassle. Using covers can make breast feeding harder, babies also don't always cooperate, and sometimes women forgot to bring them or they get dirty if you're out and have to use them multiple times. I'm all for compromise but I think this is one of those issues where the importance of breast feeding means that it should be made as easy as possible. Which means in this case, the people that are uncomfortable should be making the accommodation and look elsewhere - which is actually the easier than making someone cover up.”

“Covering is not always easy and babies do not always cooperate. Because of the importance of breastfeeding, I think that encouraging society to change it's attitude about breast exposure when it is directly related to breast feeding is the better way to go. I'd rather have some people feel uncomfortable than a woman feel she can't breast feed because she forgot a cover or her baby is uncooperative with the cover.”

“To answer your question sincerely and I think civilly- Yes breast feeding is a special exception. Encouraging breast feeding is a major health issue. There is a mountain of research about the health benefits of breast feeding. Babies that are breast fed do better across a wide spectrum of health issues from specific illnesses to allergies; from intelligence to obesity; and it even has been shown to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome as well as the development of later behavioral problems. Many of these benefits will follow them into adulthood. Wanting children to be healthier doesn't just have to be altruistic. From purely a pragmatic viewpoint, healthier children and certainly children with fewer behavioral problems are less likely to tax our public resources. There are many issues that cause Mothers to prematurely stop breast feeding or being able to breast feed. While some can't be helped, one that we can address is limiting the ways in which mothers are discouraged from breast feeding- by having to find "private places" or having to struggle to cover up which with an active baby isn't so easy. That is why laws have been created to make it as easy as possible for mothers to breast feed whenever and whereever possible. There is also the bonus of modeling- the more people see breast feeding as a normal part of life, the more likely more women will feel encouraged to try and keep at it. In the long run it benefits everyone.”
