There are many things I can think of that I wouldn't want someone to do to me now, but that I wouldnt' have cared if I was a baby. Breastfeeding is one of those things.
I figured someone would compare this to breastfeeding, but I'm surprised it was you to be honest. Breastfeeding has irrefutable benefits, this doesn't. I was bf for a year as a child, and although I wouldn't want to bf now, I'm fine with the thought of doing it as a child. I would be grossed out if I saw a video of myself sucking food out of my mom's mouth though!

I don't think that she was comparing pre mastication to breastfeeding. She was just making the point that babies don't give a flying F about societal norms. They don't care if the rest of the world thinks walking around in a diaper, or sucking on a boob for milk (as an adult), or eating pre chewed food is gross. So all those moms that wouldn't do it because 'it's gross' doesn't mean that their babies wouldn't do it and enjoy it. And in those cultures where pre mastication is the norm, they don't get grossed out by the thoughts of themselves as doing it as a child.

Exactly what Tiredmom said in the bolded. I was trying to point out that babies don't care at that age, and that there are things I wouldn't do at my age now that I wouldn't have cared that I did as a baby/child, example was breastfeeding.

I can still think it's gross, though. Just like in New Guinea when young boys give the "older and wiser men" blowjobs because they think knowledge is passed down like that - I still say it's gross. Other cultures may think us Americans/Canadians are gross for doing stuff certain ways as well.

Totally team Deniz.

I didn't say you couldn't think it was gross. I was saying that something not being common our culture doesn't make it weird or horrible.

The premastication is just gross because the idea of chewed up food.

To the bolded (nothing against you posting it, just my thoughts on it):
The boys giving BJ's in the other countries? That's gross because it's blatant sexual abuse on a child, unless they are at least of adult age, but then still, that's pretty disgusting they they have to do this kind of thing to "learn" anything. People are just making up their own s*it and calling it "culture" so that they can get away with being disgusting.

I guess that all depends on exactly what that something is...

Yeah, I think it's gross, but I also think salad is gross and ketchup is disgusting. What I consider gross might not be that way to others and it doesn't seem to be harming anyone...so no biggie.

It may not be harming Alicia S. and her Bear, but it reality, it can be harmful... Especially in 3rd world countries when disease is more prevalent.

Yes it is not suggested to do in places where HIV is common or if you have bad oral hygeine or a lot of cavaties/gum disease etc.

Jillian, ketchup!? So no ketchup on scrambled eggs? That is just too weird for me

There are three things ketchup should be allowed on. Fries, hamburgers and hotdogs. The end. I'm ok with jail time for those who break this law.

I love spicy ketchup on pasta!! Yum!!!

I also love tuna fish stirred into mac and cheese, sprinkle black pepper, and load up the hot sauce. I call it the "hook up." Also, if you're really poor, crunch up some cheetos into your Ramen.
