Perspective, people

The other day I got caught up in the Twitter Shitstorm of Stupid over Kasey Kahne’s (@kaseykahne) comments about breastfeeding in public. In an exchange with one particular knuckle dragger (to be clear, it was NOT Kahne) I was called a cunt, a troll, dumb, and pervert for my belief that breastfeeding in public is perfectly acceptable. I’m not surprised about that, nor am I surprised by the reaction of the male population (re: GROSS). What nearly knocked me over was the number of WOMEN who referred to the act of breastfeeding in public as “disgusting,” “indecent,” and, “ewwwww!”

In lieu of my rambling, irate commentary, I’ve chosen to illustrate my point with images. Here we go…

Note that their tops are body paint. At a public event.

To review:

Boobs and ass being contained by barely-there spandex and lycra in a hyper-sexualized manner is fine. Boobs are for ogling, sexy time and making ladies look hot.

Nursing in such a way that one actually has to take a second, lingering look to determine what the mother is doing, DISGUSTING AND SHAMEFUL. Functional boobs= revolting. Have they no sense of public decorum???

Quite frankly, I’d rather walk through a hoard of nursing mothers than see women happily whore themselves to a society that would rather view them as sexual objects than functional human beings.

Get some perspective, people.
