    wrong, your breast cannot simply flatten after lactation because of all the tissues we have in them. why dont you flatten your balls after you have done having your family?

    You mean like they do in all other species?

    We have chest butts on women because we like them and spent a million years growing them that way.

    Then the damn prudes hide them.

    The distrubution of what is sexually stimulating varies from person to person. Some people get off to anal stimulation, some find it enjoyable, some don't enjoy it at all. Male and female. Its the same with nipple stimulation.

    They are trying to get a rise out of you. They are also the first people to complain if some one pee'd on their door.

    The fact is there is no reason a woman can't nurse in public if she cares to and that is becoming the rule now that women aren't house slaves any more.

    Our "burkas" get smaller each decade and many places are starting to shed them all together.

    So, ...a society shouldn't be permitted to make rules for all the members of that society? ...members of a society should be permitted to do anything they want ...without regard to any or all of the other members?

    We had spare pads.

    Formula is freaking expensive as shit. You can easily blow $200 a month on formula.


    It isn't even as nutritious or healthy and is far more likely to cause colic (which is worse than water boarding to Brittney Spears). Its also a huge hassle.

    Nursing is hands down the better choice in every possible regard.

    Selective perspective?

    Isn't that just a tad toward hyperbole, at least? One could easily make the counterpoint of asking, So ... we should keep a child hungry or opt for a less-healthy option just because someone else is conflicted about getting aroused at the sight of a nursing infant?

    In general, there are rules about the rules a society can make.

    Additionally, it's a bit of a leap from feeding a child to people doing anything they want. Didn't you once challenge me on the issue of perspective, sir?

    Or was that more than once?

    And just who makes those rules about social rules, Tiassa?

    Nope, it's about following the society's rules ...whatever they might be. Nothing of a "leap" in that remark at all.

    Discharge milk ?, You rarely see the milk, and It's not that obvious sometimes. ..


    In Singapore, there is a group attempting to remove the stigma of breastfeeding, It's only natural.

    I only breastfed for about a week. I had a hard time because I was soooooo sore from having a C-Section. I was also having a hard time with latching on, so I gave up.

    They talk about all the health issues concerning breast milk vs Formula but my sons have always been really healthy. I know kids that were breast fed, that were always sick and have health problems and kids that weren't and have always been pretty healthy. So I am not CONVINCED that breast milk is far superior to formula in the long run.

    I also found it to be very convenient. It was also nice that it wasn't always my responsibility to feed them. I could drop them off to Grandma's
    with a few bottles and they were good to go. You are right though, it is expensive. The cost wasn't an issue for us though.

    Also......I believe my breasts are better for it today.

    Luckily that's enough. Its the colostrum that does the heavy lifting for the immune transfer.

    that not what I was saying, note all the great apes, note they don't have breast except when lactating. The uterus for example atrophies incredibly after pregnancy back to is baseline state, the baseline state in humans though for breast tissue is have have large amount of fat around it, there is no physical benefit for this, its positioning is detrimental, its like a peacocks tail, its is a secondary sexual characteristic to court men.

    Your rarely see someone peeing into a urinal either. The stalls are designed to make it possible to conceal this action.

    Death is natural, war is natural, hate is natural, don't ever used an appeal to nature fallacy.

    Fair enough, but we don't bother hiding those do we ? In fact the media ensures that we don't. Also, when you meant urinating in public, I thought you mean as not in toilets, the typical anglo saxon tourist who had too much to drink.
    So why hide breastfeeding ?

    Well my second son I tried it the first day, had the same problems and went right to the formula. Like I said if you compare babies that were fed mostly breast milk to those who drank formula would you be able to notice any differences in their health? Are their noticeable differences between them when they get older? I KNOW they stress breast milk is the best, but in the end does it really matter?

    This argument is a red harring, my position was not the women should be forced to breastfeed in bathrooms, or that men shoudl be allowed to pee on building walls, but rather that if breastfeeding is allowed publicly why not outdoor urinals, based on both involving the possible displaying sexual organs, bodily discharge from them, etc, features they do have in common, of course they also have features not in common but that is irrelevant as the features they have in common are damming enough. Lets say I was stating that plants and animals are comparable, you would object and call me an idiot, stating all the differences between plants and animals, I would reply they are both living organisms, they are in fact comparable on a general level, a level which may have been relevant to that issue (just as exposure or possible exposure of sexual organs is probably the primary reason some object to public breastfeeding), your inability to recognize that is in fact idiocy on your part.
