TITS OUT;The Freedom To Feed.


In our overtly sexualized society, has it come to the stage that the sight of a women breast feeding their baby is now seen as some sort of offensive sexual act? cos I for one can't understand what the problem is. If a mum feels comfortable breast feeding her baby in public, let her, doesn't bother me, but it bothers others. How can this be? there are breasts exposed in the papers and on TV daily. Is this just another case of the media stirring up a small issue into something bigger with the help of a bunch of prudish right wing control freaks. The right to breast feed in public, what a load of bollocks. Just do it! Why does anyone need to be given the right to do something that is natural? (and no I wouldn't take a piss in the middle of a crowded McDonald's, not even as a political protest.) The main reason this has become an issue is economic. In the proposed 'Right to Breast Feed' legislation there are also ideas for women who breast feed being allowed time off work to feed their child. If the bosses are worried about losing money, perhaps the government can provide some sort of breast feeding subsidies or tax breaks for firms, because after all it has been proved that breast feeding cuts down the increasing health problems the government have highlighted recently ; such as asthma and obesity. Why not invest in this at an earlier stage so not to drain NHS resources at a later date. If there are other workers who aren't gonna be happy, cos someones getting something they are not, chances are they're gonna be male, lets look at the discrimination that women still suffer in the work place and barriers in their path to promotion. Often involving the issues of having children shall we. If they're not male then they obviously haven't heard of solidarity or are women behaving like men in order to survive in a mans world.

Gotta admit I must have missed this story nuzz but, as usual, you are spot on. My wife was more than happy to breast feed our daughter, irrespective of where we were, and I am very proud of her for that. I think the difference in her health, compared to others, has been demonstrable (but then I would say that).

It was a story in one of the sundays and there was a phone in on a radio station i was listening to, and i'd never heard so much kak about nothing that I was inspired. My daughter was breast fed for first 6-8 months, not in public, girlfriend wasn't comfortable with idea, which is fair enough. Have to say also that her health is better compared to others.
