Why do so many breast feeding advocates get so angry at mothers who do not breastfeed?

If not angry, why do some get so insistent that others should breastfeed or should have breast fed?  Where does this sentiment come from?

If there were a significant difference in the health and well being between children depending upon which way they were fed, I could see their point of view.  However, the fact is that there is not a significant difference.

 I don't care what women do. I have done both.  I do feel that if more women chose to breastfeed that we could get past the sexualization issue.

In some cases it seems like the women are thinking that they had to endure it so others should have to as well.

I honestly don't care what other women feed their kids. I did what's best for me and I believe every woman should be able to do whatever works for them.

Have I seen that happen here, where bf moms attack ff moms? Yes, a lot! Should it stop? Of course. Because at the end of the day if your kids are healthier or not is not going to affect my day or my kids' life.

Because they are nosy busybodies who require validation of their choices.

That is a good point.
