Just happened on this multi-vehicle pile up.

As a father, and grandfather of girls I became very aware that breast feed babies need feeding frequently and are not particular as to place. Just as getting a bottle to one hungry child satisfies it's needs another needs Mum's breast. Seeing a contented baby being feed is one of life's better moments. As for exhibitionism I've never seen such in relation to breast feeding.

In terms of the tasteless display of too much flesh there are sadly many examples but breast feeding is not one of them, in my book. Women do not always find breast feeding easy and harassment from those who ought to know better helps neither child nor parent.

Mums, carry on. Your baby's needs outweigh the outrage of your critics.

Oh, this thread... This glorious, glorious thread. It introduced me to my favorite .gif, so I count it as a win.

I'm sorry, what exactly was the topic of this breastfeeding thread? It's too much to look up, enlighten me. Just curious.
To summarize, some people here apparently believe that a woman breastfeeding is a sex act that automatically makes her a slut.  Everyone else thinks that is a stupid idea.  Endless argumentation ensued resulting the the thread getting locked and reopened a few times. Good times were had. We laughed, we cried, and we insulted each other.

The end.

I was going to add the article about the Pope encouraging women to breast feed in the Sistine chapel. But now that seems sort of silly.

I read thru this thread, and I certainly had my sarcastic hat on at times. Roll Eyes I have been working hard on reining that part of my personality in. So it is weird to read it when I give it a little lead on the leash. (yes, I only gave it a little lead in this thread, what I think is far worse than what I type/say most of the time).

It depends on the age of the infant so fed.  Wink

they can set up one of those pictures that started this whole thing, and they can congregate there.  Far from the Kerdy section.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
