So, do you women who didn't breastfeed and don't like seeing breasts do what they do naturally...

Get offended and disguted whn you see a documentary set in Africa, in places where women openly walk around topless and breastfeed their babies and toddlers on the go?



I mean, by your logic, they should have a little respect and cover up right?

  • I don't watch it, I don't go there. According to YOUR logic- it is ok for me to go to the store topless because women get to breastfeed in public....

  • WOW! Are you trying to start drama or what? We all have our own personal preferences. I'm glad you're so open about your breasts. Why can't you live and let live?

  • i don't watch either. however they also live in a country where it is normal to walk around topless. its not normal or acceptable behavior here to walk into a store topless.

  • zata, I think that would be a step in the right direction for you. You need to learn that your body is not disgusting. I hope you'll one day realize that. :(

  • Women in Africa breastfeed as long as possible because of the starvation factor. Where's the comparison there? Apples to oranges. I breastfed and when I did I didn't breastfeed in public. I don't want to see your breasts while your are breastfeeding anymore than I want to see a non breastfeeders tits hanging out or thongs. Keep it decent.

  • Legalmommy how ignorant.

    "Women in Africa breastfeed as long as possible because of the starvation factor"

    There are women in Africa who breastfeed because of the health benefits and because it's natural, and have plenty of food to feed their children.
    It's ignorant to think that they would only not formula feed because they are too poor to.

  • Well that is your opinion, but I really dislike seeing mothers breastfeed in public, much more, when they decide not to cover themselves up. Yes it is a natural, beautiful, nuturing thing (For your baby though) Not for the entire public!
