Decent spot: wherever the Mom is. Nice you want to deny helpless babies from eating when hungry because you canít handle even the slightest sight of a breast (assuming you then do the reasonable thing of not looking if you donít want to see.)

Okay, if you want to get right down to it, I think ruining a guy for life because he peed in an alley once is absurd.

Happy now?

There is still no real comparison between breastfeeding and public urination or defecation. All other considerations aside, the latter is a public health issue.

If you don't like seeing it, look away. Same as I do when I see some man with huge, hairy man boobs going topless.
Exactly.

The very argument of supporting public breastfeeding is specifically about the natural non sexual functionality of the breast. The same can be said of peeing in public.
There is nothing for others to clean up when a woman breastfeeds. There are no diseases spread when a woman breastfeeds like there has beeb in history where proper sanitation was not used.

She should have a basket on her head and the picture would be perfect.

Thank you for proving the point of everyone here who has said the argument is more about her looks than the fact that she is feeding her child.

The more I think about some of the responses here, the more they depress me. For Pete's sake, the image of a mother and her child is one of the most enduring in art, in literature...in everything. It's universal.

Forget her looks, forget her tattoos, forget all of the superficial things. A woman is nurturing - nourishing - her baby. The correct response seems, to me, to be not contempt, but tenderness.

Yep. That's why women are special.

If she doesn't need privacy, why should I care?

I don't think she deserves Backlash or Support.

I have three six year old baby nephews and one six year old Godson. We saw a nursing mother once, and I told them, "Boys, stop staring, it is not polite." It is a learning opportunity for us because there are all kinds of people out there. Boys need to be taught the world does not revolve around them.

No more/less.
