obscene. The suitable nature of breastfeeding disappeared. Now mothers had to
resort to all kinds of idiotic behaviour to feed their babies. They’d to conceal
their breast–and their infant–under a towel or blanket. They’d to be exiled to
another room, away from “ordinary” folks. They’ve even had to sit in a people
toilet booth as a last resort, instead of exhibiting that terrible, sexual breast of
This is absolute madness!
Breastfeeding in America
is so inconvenient, because of this nonsensical belief that an uncovered nursing
breast is obscene, that many women just choose not to breastfeed, in spite of
the fact that breastfeeding is the healthiest option for their kids.
Because the breast is
sexualized, women need their breasts to appear as attractive as possible.
Consequently many girls choose not to breastfeed because they’re afraid it’ll
cause their breasts to appear less attractive. So the health of our kids is
Endangered for purposes of vanity!
This madness has to
stop! The female breast, notably in its function as nurturer to the individual
species, must be restored to its initial nobility. Women must have the capacity to feel
comfortable breastfeeding their kids. They must be made to feel accepting of their
breasts, regardless of what state they are in. They must be able to feel that
the intention of their breasts would be to nurture kids, not to be targets of lust
for guys.
How do we do this? By
allowing girls to nurse their babies wherever, whenever, the need arises,
without driving them to leap through senseless hoops to prevent being seen. The
human race has survived millennia of exposed breasts as mothers nursed their
children. The morality of “enlightened” Western civilization WOn’t crumble at

the sight of a nursing breast.
The funny part is, it’s
Totally legal to do that! The La Leche League’s web site states:
Mothers have a right to
breastfeed where they go with their infant, even if that is outside in public. It does
not matter whether the mother goes to a people or a private place, or even
whether they are in a state with laws. No one has beachitoo to tell a
mother the best way to feed her infant, notably a way that increases the danger of illness
to both mom and baby! Legislation was enacted in nearly one half of the
states in the U.S. because they need to clarify this right… It really is hoped that
legislation will help change society’s attitudes that breastfeeding is
something indecent and should not be done in public….
Infants have to be
breastfed on demand, and mothers shouldn’t feel pressured to use bottles…. No
breastfeeding mother should be told that she should need to use bottles, anymore
than a bottle feeding mother should be told that she should be breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding is an action of nurture, not something to be concealed. Mothers should
be permitted to choose for themselves how they want to feed their baby, and our
society shouldn’t discourage their choice, especially when it is one that
benefits all people.
It really is important to
Recall that women have a right to breastfeed in public whether there is a law
or not. The goal of laws is NOT to legalize it, but to clarify the
fact that girls have the right to breastfeed in public, or it is not a
criminal violation, like indecent exposure. Consequently, in case you are in a state that
Doesn’t have legislation, you still have the right to feed your baby where you
If it’s not illegal to
breastfeed in public, then why doesn’t it happen? Why, at those rare times when
a courageous mum does do it, do individuals become shocked and offended and make an effort to quit
Because the social mores
of modern Western civilization declare it a taboo. It’s an “inappropriate” thing
to do. Showing the breast is at least indecent, if not obscene.
The truth is, that
belief is obscene, not breastfeeding in public.
Family Skinnydippers as an
organization is fed up with the irrational social obstacles to breastfeeding
that exist. Those challenges are unhealthy for the child, for the mom, and for
society in general. Family Skinnydippers is devoted to altering the attitude
in society that the female breast is sexual and ought to be concealed.
The female breast is a
nurturing organ. To call it sexual is the action of a twisted head. We need to
Enable mothers to nourish their kids in the way nature meant; the way that
is most healthy for the mother and child, both physically and emotionally; the
way that is most convenient for the mother (since when should feeding one’s
Kids be a hard act?); and in the manner which will liberate the breast from
the warped mind-set in our society that it is an object of lust for men.
The means to accomplish this
is simple: breast feed. Do it whenever, wherever it’s needed. In private, in
public. At home, at the shop, at the park, even at church. At family
gatherings, at Little League, at the pool. Everyw here .
The law is on the side of
