71. Oh, yeah, I always thought of my breastfeeding agenda!
I breastfed both of mine long-term (four and a half years total), and whenever I needed to nurse mine, the very first thing on my mind was the breastfeeding, feminazi agenda. :eyes: I never thought of keeping my child quiet and fed appropriately or anything. Nope. It was all to undermine what was going on and to force everyone to accept breastfeeding in public.


Honestly--she probably didn't think much beyond making sure that she had a good nursing outfit on that would ensure no one actually seeing anything. She had a baby who needed to nurse, and she nursed him. End of story. If it really bothers you that much, it tells me more about you than it does about her.

Of course it gave ammo to the opposition: so did the lights turning off and the crappy mikes. Are you going to rant and rave about those, too? Oh--you mentioned them but were more upset about a woman feeding her baby. :eyes:

Lack of respect is what you're showing by getting all upset about a woman feeding her baby rather than have a screaming kid. Her baby was too young to leave alone with anyone else, and she needed to be there. Get over it.
