If a man can be shirtless in a public area so can a woman. It's legal in Vancouver for women to walk around shirtless so the indecency factor can be thrown out the window right at that.

Secondly and most importantly, it is a natural and essential thing for a woman to breastfeed her infant when the infant needs food.
To say that women need to 'cover it all up' or be in a private area in order to breastfeed is absurd and in all reality is suppressive to her rights can also be suppressive to the babies needs.

If you dont like it then dont stare. (which you shouldnt be doing anyway) We live in a beautiful city and there are far more things to focus your attention on.

As for the argument that it's not something for younger audiences....I say we need to stop making natural acts like breastfeeding so taboo and sheltering youth from the realities behind it. By hiding it from them and not educating them early on the subject they create their own conclusions which are almost always incorrect and inappropriate.

Seriously, some people really need to grow the f*** up.



Nothing is more beautiful than a baby bonding with it's mother while feeding, and it's not like the mountains won't be there tommorrow. If your on some bus or in some store, what else you gonna look at, the ads on the bus or the cheesy plastic models in the store?

How hypocritical is it that we can't tell you where to feed your kids but you can tell me where my eye's should go? Avert my gaze? What if your right in front of me, do I have to look unconfortably at the floor when straight ahead is the most interesting thing going on?

No but you dont have to gawk and stare like its some type of exhibit at a museum or stage show. It's simple common courtesy. You really shouldnt sit and stare endlessly at anyone because 9.5/10 it's going to make the person extremely uncomfortable. maybe you are just completely apathetic towards others feelings and dignity though?

it's not hypocritical at all. Stop trying to make an apple an orange.

Hold on. I'm not a big fan of this argument here. I don't really consider breastfeeding bonding, whether or not there actually IS bonding. When I see it, the first word that comes to my mind is not "beautiful".

Then again, the first word is not "gross" either. It's just another part of motherhood.

If you're on the bus or somewhere else in public and you see a couple kissing or hugging, do you stare at them? When you see a little girl playing at the beach in a swimsuit, do you stare? When you see a guy with speedos on, do you stare?

Well, you can if you want to, because what they're doing isn't illegal and staring isn't illegal...so if you get your rocks off that way...keep staring. I assure you...you won't be staring for long....at least not with a blackeye. That will be the day you finally get your lesson in what's ok to stare at and what's not ok to stare at...since you seem not to know. Hey, some kids just need to learn that the stove is hot by touching it...don't worry, next time a woman feeds her kid...just stare and everything will be alright...i promise.

And you keep on making your 'right to stare' argument....

Except in BC nursing mothers have the right to breastfeed their children in a public area, and it is discriminatory to ask them to cover up or breastfeed somewhere else.



What's the rules on that? Has to be your child or can it be someone else's? Is there age limits on this?

people who say they should cover up or no then should never come over to Europe and hope to go to the beaches. It is perfectly normal to be topless or completely nude on the beach. Someone called the people that think they should cover up squares. He was spot on. Funny how in the U.S. they are so against nudity yet it has one of the biggest porn industries. Talk about your double standards.

What I would like to know is what everyone ehre who votes yes but the should cover up means by cover up? Should the infant have its head shoved under the shirt? thats ridiculous, especially on hot summer days. If a single breast is out and the child is feeding you can really see much now can you? Maybe they should be using car tarps? Would that make CDC more comfortable with nature?

Why is a fat man with man boobs allowed to walk around the beach without a shirt while a female cannot even breast feed her kid in public when the baby is covering the breast in a sense they are almost similar!

Hey, speak big internet tough guy, I ain't no pushover. Someone going for you is great. Either you kick their donkey in protection, or you loose the fight and you can still get retribution for your trying to tell me what to do with an assault charge. Or both. Sometimes an donkey kicking ain't enough after all.

I ain't no fan of pda's unless it's two chicks going at it (who wouldn't stare at that?) then I would probably want to look away, it's not something I want to see. And nope, I don't stare at little kids at the beach unless they're doing something odd, and I certainly don't stare at a speedo since that's not something I want to see either.

What's hilarious is that odds are someone arguing for discretion would probably use it himself and perhaps I might just be being the devil's advocate here but my point is just because you have a right to do something doesn't mean you should and perhaps we should work on being a little discrete as opposed to rude and if I can't look in a certain direction at least do me a favour and minimise the area I need to not look at.

And while were at it, if the bus driver says cover up simply respond with get bent and if a store tells you to go into a room tell 'em fine I will take my business elsewhere instead of sucking my taxpayer dollars on a freaking tribunal. Last I checked nursing mom's are hardly pariah's feeling societies oppression, in fact, typically people tend to be nice and offer them seats and help getting stuff if they need it.

It's not rocket science. You might not suceed in being completely discreet, much like people might not suceed in not looking. I think so long as all parties at least TRY to be discreet then there's probably not going to be a problem.

Of course, it's your right to just go topless and hand a kid off each one. Sometimes you have to wonder how much an effort to be discreet these women were up to to actually get a response, typically it's hard to notice unless you decided to look at the kid's head specifically.

They both can. Heck, the women can take her shirt off just cuz she feels like it. It's not against the law.

I dont think that the user is saying he is personally going to come find you and punch you out but rather that you are likely to have someone take a swing or two if you made the woman feel uncomfortable. I know if I was on the bus and someone was staring at a woman who was breastfeeding and it made her uncomfortable id speak up, and due to my anger and personality id get physical quite fast. Also I would have the support of the majority around me, i'll put money on that.

The problem with your argument is that you are victimizing a person over this "hey if she can do it in public I can stare" theory. The way you deliver your argument makes you come across to me like a bully and a predator who is willing to jump at any chance to take advantage of this situation and twist it to exploit it for some cheap perverted thrills. Now I am not saying that is the type of person you are. I don't know you from a hole in the wall and I honestly think that you aren't likely to be that kind of person. But in this thread it is how you are coming across....at least to me. But like I said, I dont know you at all and you probably have more of a solid head on your shoulders than to be that kind of person.

If its not rocket science than please explain how they can go about "covering up". What is your solution ron? i dont think there are any women walking down the street topless shaking their chest while two small children hang on by the mouth for dear life. there isnt anyone breastfeeding and moving within a few inches of a persons face to make them uncomfortable. So what are they doing that is so unacceptable that they need to cover up? And once again, give examples for covering up.

It's the whole "it's my right to feed anywhere anytime I want and hell no it's also my right to not cover up" speach in here that makes THEM look like they don't give a damn if they are drawing attention to themselves that got me onto it, especially once wet brought the whole legal argument into it. The legal world is the non consideration world. If that's what we want to wrap ourselves around all the power I am simply highlighting how non discretion is a two way street and it can go either way.

And quite frankly, if someone tried to punch me on a bus for any reason deserved or not his arm would be broken about half a second later and that solid head of mine would be blowing it's top.

Speak big? Ummm ok....

If you want to get schooled by a left hook from some woman you're staring at...then be my guest....please, stare, please, I beg you.
You can just tell her or her husband or the other normal people pummeling you that you were just trying to play the devil's advocate.

Your point is pointless...when something is a 'right' people don't need your permission or your moral opinion on whether they can partake of that right. If you don't like it...tough...change the law. Otherwise...deal with it. And when you argue from a point of nonsense don't act all surprised if people are going to react negatively to you and your point.

And the last time I checked breastfeeding mom's were looked upon as pariah's, unitl they fought and contested the rules and ultimately had the law changed to include their fundamental rights. This new 'right' was given relatively recently. If you aren't going to stand up for someone's right, then don't give 'head up your donkey' opinion on why they shouldn't feel free to act on their rights. Devil's advocates such as yourself have been telling people and minority groups to discreetly act on their rights, since before women had the right to vote. Again, either support the right's of others or one day you'll find your rights being trampled on. Also, people typically tend to be nice and don't stare at women who are breastfeeding....but like I said before...you keep on staring.

That's what people are sure sounding damn certain they have the right to do.

Just minimse the amount exposed. It's not much effort. If the kid doesn't like a cloth around his/her head then so be it. Common sense and discretion aren't difficult concepts.

What's the rules on that? Has to be your child or can it be someone else's? Is there age limits on this?


I see what you did there, lol.


As back to the topic at hand... I don't see why it's such a big deal for a mother to breastfeed her child in a private area. Sure your baby is hungry, but it's not like you have 30 seconds to give the kid milk or else it'll die. Just take a couple of minutes, walk down to a private booth and feed your child.

There are private washrooms or places to change your child's diaper. If there are none or in bad sanitary condition, I highly doubt any clothing stores will deny you the use of one of their stalls for you to breastfeed.

In any case, I would assume that feeding your child in a closed, secure and private area would be much better than doing it in public where there are creeps and strange people present.

Again, either support the right's of others or one day you'll find your rights being trampled on. Also, people typically tend to be nice and don't stare at women who are breastfeeding....but like I said before...you keep on staring.



That would suck being seperated from your child because of an assault charge, or daddy not being able to hold the kid because your arm is broken and/or your in jail. It's never anyone's right to violently assault another regardless of if they are being idiots. I am quite serious about how extremely poorly I would react to someone doing that.

That's about the only thing I have been serious about. If you can't figure that out when I just finished explitely saying that then too bad for you.

That's what people are sure sounding damn certain they have the right to do.

Just minimse the amount exposed. It's not much effort. If the kid doesn't like a cloth around his/her head then so be it. Common sense and discretion aren't difficult concepts.


You cant offer a single damn example. You have no argument. How do we minimize the amount exposed if a damn head is covering 2/3's of the breast? Oh and as for the cloth idea, that would only make it harder for the baby to breathe, could potentially start to overheat the VERY FRAGILE young baby and at the end of the day women shouldnt have to make attempts to conceal breastfeeding or be discreet about it. Stop treating it like a crime.

And women DO have the right to be topless and breastfeed in public and if you dont like it I suggest you move to somewhere where women dont have equality. I hear the Middle East is great this time of year...

Fine, don't use a cloth, I don't care. As you say, most of the time you can't even tell the kid is feeding so clearly it's possible. I am not a women's clothing mechanic and as I mentioned as long as one TRIES to be discrete then I doubt you would have an issue with 90% of people. In fact I already wrote two pages ago and several times since is it that hard a concept to get that you need me to answer how a women is to operate her clothing?

If I have to explain what discression is there's no hope for you either. I have the right to eat nothing but garlic tacos too, doesn't mean I should.

Right, we'd feel real sorry for you if you got pwned by a breastfeeding mother.

"I swear your honor, I wasn't staring that long, besides she was asking for it by indiscreetly acting within her rights"

reminds me of,

"Well, your honor, she shouldn't have worn that kind of dress in front of me...she was asking for it"

Pretty sure that so long as your not endangering someone that it's still assault. That's a good way to loose your kid.

What part of it's illegal to strike others do you not understand? Or the fact that it IS legal to defend yourself?

Or that I don't care either way and would respond poorly to someone attacking me?

I have to admit though, attack of the breastfeeding women does have a catchy ring to it.

It's called a blanket, drape it over your breast. But at the same time It's not like they can't use a bottle or go to the bathroom. But a blanket is the key


It's a human child eating why should she have to sit in the washroom? Or even cover up? Who cares.

I can't believe there are 4 1/2 pages of this (with the exclusion of the last page or so) I had no idea breast feeding in public was such a huge problem. I voted for cover up but I honestly do not care either way, it is just the most commonly used option I have observed so why not go with it. This entire topic is a non issue for the most part. Most women are too concerned with social norms or too self conscious to even attempt to breast feed without being covered. I can probably count on one hand the amount of bare breasted feeding I have seen in my entire life (not that I am looking for it like the other guy here). Even if people were clear on the laws and knew it was perfectly legal or even socialy accepted the majority of women would still choose to cover up. Modesty, bashfulness, and the adherence to social norms are such an influencial part of our society when it comes to nudity this will be unlikely to change any time soon. That being said there will always be free spirits who choose to challenge the social norms but they are so few and far betwen its basically a non issue.

What!? You're sure that as long as you're not endangering someone, hitting someone is still assault? Who's not endangering someone? The breastfeeding mom? I'm sure getting clocked by her would be an endangerment to the one staring at her....if she's doing it right.

Anyways, stop drinking and posting.
