I can't wrap my mind around this. Why do we care? I mean, we show off parts of our bodies that are used directly and frequently in sexual acts (our mouths and hands) but we freak out if we see a naked breast in public. I'm so confused! If we don't care about someone showing their hands, then why do some people care about seeing a mother nurse her baby without a cover? Or hell, a woman going topless? Why did we decide, as a culture, that THAT part of the body was so taboo?

The over sexualization of females. My daughters school required girls to wear shorts under shirts and dresses. She is in pre-k. Also a friend of mine was told her daughter must wear an undershirt under her clothes for martial arts, the boys didn't have to. I mean she is wearing the typical cloths that covers her and she was 6 there wasn't anything there to show that the boys couldn't see in the mirror themselves. It is laughable. When I was little no one would have ask either.
Breastfeeding is gross because people see breasts more as a sexual thing instead of a food source. Also the past 2 generations were told that formula was better, thus many did not breastfeed so may not get it. I know that was the case with my Mother and Great Aunt. They really struggled with my breastfeeding past 6 months, in public or on demand. They both did formula.
