Why does breastfeeding offend?

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Photos, Quotes

I have long wondered why breastfeeding in public can be offensive. I simply don’t get it! The baby needs food, why can feeding be offensive – it is a natural thing to eat, the same can be said about a naked nipple.

If you have any answers please write your mind in the comment field 🙂

I defne myself as a naked freedom lover. I am founder of SpotNaked and blog about naked freedom and places to be nude.

    Have you been to America? Do you have any idea what American teenagers would do if they saw this much breast in real life?

    Plus their mothers protecting them from such.

      I have actually been in US but just for 2 days. It’s actually not only in the US the problem with breastfeeding in public occurs. In Denmark which must be called a very liberal nation, people has begun to be offended when they see a breastfeeding woman in a public place. I find that development really bad – but why has it started in the first place?

    I think it began with social media. The female breast has become so sexualized. It appears that the younger generations of mothers now view the female breast as a sex organ so they now have to protect their children from them. Not to change the subject but locker room nudity has also come under fire by both genders for the same reasons.

    In Mexico, we haven’t seen much of these type of attitudes against breastfeeding in public, actually it is done anywhere when the baby asks for food.
    Some women, in a modest way, cover their breast and the head of the baby with a scarf.

    I don’t have the slightest idea. And it seems so stupid a law. I live in a little town in California and any flesh shown by anyone out in public is unlawful…even by nursing Mom’s. There are few things more precious then seeing a mother and child in that tender embrace.

    It is only uptight religious cretins who object to the natural and beautiful act of feeding a child by its mothers breast, it is what breasts are designed to do, it is their sole function.
    Anyone who objects to this needs a lobotomy!

    I enjoy being barefoot and would rahter be but sometimes it just doesn’t make sense to be. Besides my wife and I still play footsie and if she takes the time to ensure her feet are nice, soft, free of rough, dead skin shouldn’t I? I’ve seen guys feet and some of them are gross! Having nasty feet is not manly! LOLSo I go with my wife and get pedicures every so often to ensure my nails are cut correctly and I enjoy the leg and foot massages! LOL But if I’m going to go through all that trouble of keeping my feet nice, why would I go barefoot ALL the time and either throw money away or ruin what I just paid for?I’m barefoot inside ALWAYS, out back as long as I’m not going to be working or doing lots of things on the concrete. Anywhere I can be barefoot and not get hurt and not destroy my feet I’ll be barefoot.
