154. the difference from today and yesterday. growing up in the 60's, mothers often breast fed regularly
whereever they were. i remember often having a mother around breast feeding. was such a norm. no one bothered with it. i would run up on a mom to say something, for her to be breastfeeding, move the blanket away to coo at the baby, without thought to a boob, and then ask what i wanted, go off on my way.

i was talking to my father about it and that is how he remembered it in his time, back in the forties.

the issue today, is we want the breast to only be about sex for male entertainment, and no longer associated with feeding of baby. as we yell from top of our lungs what a puritan nation we are.

i ponder

about how much this supposed "puritan" behavior today is vs the past when breastfeeding was NO issue at all.
