I can't believe something as natural as breast feeding could ever be concieved as an "indecent act". That is crazy, but I am glad the bill passed..

The reason it can be concieved as an "indecent act" is because of the exposed breast, to some people. I know I don't want to walk around and see a woman's full breast just out in the air, exposed for all to see. Just my two cents, and I BF all 3 of my kids.

I honestly could care less, as long as the woman has something to cover herself up with. I wouldn't want to be whipping my boob out if I was breastfeeding, I'd be too shy lol.. I'd definitely use a blanket.

To each their own lol

I just wish this were a given, and not something that had to be legislated. However, since it has to be, I'm thrilled that it is![/b]
I mean, COME ON, do we really need government to tell us it's okay to feed children in the way they were intended to be? pshh. I mean thank God it was passed... but it's stupid that it had to be in the first place, kwim?

It is so stupid that this has to be a bill. I mean seriously...how do they think babies have been eating for centuries?!!?

I don't really want to see boobs flopping around all over the place either but I also don't think that my child should have to eat under a sheet or in a public bathroom because you can't keep your eyes to yourself. If I were walking around as a size 3 with perky C cups over half those people would mysteriously no longer have a problem with it.

LOL SHAWN hehehe


You're right.... If all of us looked like freaking Jessica Simpson and we whipped our boobs out to feed our child, no one would say S H I T lol

I personally would put a blanket over myself, but that's just because I don't want ANYONE seeing my boobies, they're mine and I'm shy hehehehehehehe

I don't have a problem with it...if it's intended for breastfeeding. I mean...it's a natural thing.

I agree...if we all had stripper boobs breastfeeding our little ones...people might be putting dollars between you and the baby. Humm....
