So the consensus is that I'm ridiculous. That an accidental exposure of the breast isn't a huge deal and I can calmly explain that to my child.
Of course, I wholeheartedly agree. And accidental beach exposure of breasts is fairly common in the surf here in Hawaii.
So why is it that people are so ridiculous about a woman nursing her child without a cover outside of the home? Really, what's the difference? Why is THAT so hard to explain to a child? Why is the assumption that a woman nursing without a cover is attempting to draw attention or is being immodest, but the assumption of the woman on the beach is just going about her business and if anyone saw a flash or more of her breast then they need to get over themselves?
I genuinely want to know. My guess is that those who can't see the parallel are not, in fact, bothered by the breast. I believe it's the actual act of breastfeeding that bothers them.
