This isn't o.k., transgenders who breastfeed in public, who look like men.

The agenda to gender neutralize people isn't working so stop doing it, it's bordering on carny side-show freak.

People who want to have it all ways possible isn't healthy for a society, society cannot allow people to simply do whatever they want because they can.

If you're a "guy" and want to breastfeed your child at home, then do it - not out in public.

Up until last week the great breastfeeding debate was centered on where to do it and for how long. But Trevor MacDonald, a 27-year-old transgender parent, has raised an ever bigger question: who gets to do it?

If they have milk, why not?
Now you're upset about people feeding their kids?
Sheesh.

A transgendered "man" isn't going to be accepted as a "man" if he/she breastfeeds an infant in public. And isn't being accepted as a man what a female-to-male person wants?

Breastfeeding is breastfeeding. I don't care if the person doing it looks "female" enough in your opinion.

What's next? Women with masculine features aren't allowed to breastfeed? Women with short hair aren't allowed to breastfeed? Women wearing pants aren't allowed to breastfeed? Women with hairy armpits aren't allowed to breastfeed?

Get over your ridiculous gender stereotypes. This isn't the 50's.

1st, if you know how to breastfeed, you can do it without ANYONE knowing that you're breastfeeding.....it can be very discreet. So, learn the proper way and you can feed anywhere and it will offend no one!

Were you talking to me?

Personally, I don't give a rat's patootie who breastfeeds or where it's done. My post was general and not a personal statement about how I might feel but since you made it personal, I'll say this much. I am well past caring who does what anymore and I don't pass judgment easily--something you might well learn to do yourself.

Are you opposed to breastfeeding in public, or just opposed to people you don't like breastfeeding in public?
