You can't see the nipple is not that you can't see anything and no I don't agree with the tiny bikinis on woman for men to oogle at either. Yes I have breastfed I know it can be done discretely without a blanket with a jacket or sweater or even the t-shirt your wearing and I'm in no way out to say that anybody should use those silly nursing tents. But in our daily life we encounter a myriad of people from different ages,cultures,social backgrounds,etc... and our being able to exist in a common society means a certain number of social norms,meaning the extremes would usually be rejected as extremes. People need time to slowly warm up to new things.
PS Yes I've bottle fed under a blanket because my son is attention deficit and my daughter is a preemie who overwhelms easily

While I agree with what you are saying, I would like to point out that some babies don't mind being covered up with a blanket (mine loved it!), other babies HATE being covered up with a blanket (or anything else for that matter).

I don't eat under a blanket, you probably don't either, so why should my baby? I'll never understand why big, fat, hairy men with giant moobs are allowed to walk around topless but a mother feeding her baby is offensive.
