Probably an odd place to post this...but I want to anyways.
So...I saw on my FB feed something about Australia's "The Voice". It seems there is a list of people in uproar over the thought that someone could possibly be offended by a woman nursing her two year old child on television.
First...I warn, I am an asshole. So...if anyone dislikes assholes, try to gloss over this entry.
Getting on with it....
So...why is it I am the bad person for not agreeing with this? "But...But...But...Breastfeeding a baby is a beautiful thing." is the argument I hear, and I agree. Breastfeeding a baby is a positive experience. That being said...if it can walk...its no baby. It is now a toddler and should be working on solid food. And even if the child isn't eating solid food...by this point you should be working on meal times. That means, you don't whip out your tit ever time the kid says "I'm hungry"...you wait till meal time, and do it privately.
It's possible I feel this way mostly because I have walked into it unexpectedly before. I used to work nights, and my lady would babysit her friends kid. On more than one occasion I would stumble out of the bedroom, into the kitchen, and there was my girls friend at the table nursing her three year old daughter. No warning, no "Hey, this is your house, do you mind", just...bam....looks like someone is shooting midget/milking porn.
As a working professional I understand I have to support this AT WORK. But in my home, I get to be the closeminded dick I want to be...don't I?
