Well I can tell you I’ve learned my lesson from the last argument about this. There is nothing gross or even unusual about this, it’s perfectly fine and normal and anyone who thinks differently is a sexist asshole.
Dawn of the Dead: YOURE the fucked up one if you think that it’s wrong to breastfeed a five year old. Who are you to judge a woman for what she does? You want to take us back to 50′s sexual politics, well I won’t have it. You dick.
It is better than some friends that never do it because they are creeped out by newborns on their boob. That’s wrong. Hubby wants me to do it till son is two. Leaking milk out of your tits at the sound of a baby crying is something I want to get away from.
Look, if she wants to breastfeed the kid until he’s 12, that’s none of my business. My problem is A. I don’t want to see your tit and B. I don’t want my kids to see your tit so don’t do it at a bloody school.
I think this is a case of backpedaling by the original poster, otherwise why not say ‘breastfeeding a 5 year old at a parent-teacher interview’ in the first place? Personally I don’t really give a shit if people want to breastfeed until 5, even in public, as far as stuff people do in public that makes me want to stab them, breastfeeding doesn’t even make the list.
“I don’t want my kids to see your tit so don’t do it at a bloody school.” Yeah I only want my kids to see tits in a sexual context in the media, I don’t want my kids thinking tits could have any purpose beyond being honky funbags.
You guys are so sexist, this is the 21st century. If you don’t want your children to see tits without learning about them, why not have the mother or some family member show the kid their tits and let them touch and ask questions about it. That would be the progressive way to go about it, no need to be sexist!!!!
^no, you did infer it, though. Your inference that the human body fulfilling a normal biological function is bad and wrong is nothing more than narrow-minded priggishness, probably as a leftover from the social and moral indoctrination of boring fucking fifties.
I bet you would secretly pleased if I took a dump on your coffee table. Fucking hypocrite.
@frankenstein, yeah I guess, but it would have been funnier if the kid had been 15
@ Evilcow, yeah you could do that, or you could just say ‘ thats how mammals feed their babies, just like we get milk from cows’ and leave it at that.
@bunnyslugger, I know you didnt say that but it was inferred. I apologise though I was being a bit dickish there. And while I applaud your efforts to curb sexual content at home the fact is that sexualisation of breasts in the media goes beyond the overtly pornographic/adult, it would be very hard to eliminate that influence entirely. Not to mention the influence from sources outside the home eg other kids.
It’s just my personal viewpoint that making a fuss over public breastfeeding is creating a taboo where there doesn’t need to be. I dont know what the fear is, what damage is going to be incurred to a kid seeing breastfeeding.
And for the record I do find breastfeeding at the age of five a bit odd, but not for any sexual reasons just that I feel a child should have more independence by then.
Phew this is all a bit heavy for lamebook…..lets talk about circumcision instead
