Nursing in Public

Last Sunday (Jan. 6th) My sister, her sister-in-law, and a friend went to Hollister is Wilmington, DE to protest a woman's right to nurse her child in pubic. Apparently a woman in Houston, TX was harassed about it. Well, this whole situation has me fuming. For one, they are BOOBS. Everybody has seen them. I think people forget that a woman breasts primary function is feeding one's offspring, not sexual pleasure. I can't stand when people act like a woman breastfeeding her child is an "eyesore". If it offends you... keep walking, don't look. Simple. I absolutely cannot stand when people say that women should have to breastfeed in the bathroom... THE BATHROOM?!?!? A PUBLIC FUCKING BATHROOM?! Are you kidding me?! I'm willing to bet not ONE of those assholes ever ate a single meal in a public bathroom. That is ridiculous. UGH! People disgust me. So the Concord Mall, where this all went down, posted some OUTRAGEOUS comments on their facebook page, then went back and said they never even had a facebook page. However, when you go to their website, there is a facebook "follow me" icon right there in your face.. can't miss it. Well, they have since removed the facebook page and the button. The security officer's at the mall brought the State Police with them to confront my sister and company. They wanted them to be arrested for indecent exposure. Well, it just so happened that my sister had a copy of the Delaware law that says women have the right to nurse in public. Well, this whole thing is getting national attention, which is cool, because it raises awareness, but some of the comments on these articles are infuriating. The ignorance of some people! My blood pressure is rising as I'm writing this. So anyway, SUPPORT NURSING IN PUBIC! 

This is the best write up of the story, and most accurate, please read:
Concord Mall Equates Breastfeeding Babies to "Sucking on Wife's Breasts in Public"; attempts Cover Up

If you're interested in reading any of the other articles, just google "Concord Mall breastfeeding" There's even an article on reddit. -_-

My sister and company before they were harassed by Concord Mall staff: 
       So proud of these girls!


  1. You are absolutely right! It gets me so riled up. I used to hide BF my boys, but after a HORRIBLE experience in a McDonald's bathroom, I vowed NEVER AGAIN!!
    I chose to cover up, but even if you don't, or your baby rips your cover down, the public needs to GET OVER IT!

  2. Someone just commented this on one of the articles:

    "Fred Jones • 38 minutes ago Report Abuse
    Women who breast feed actually do it for the sexual gratification of having their breasts suckled. Thos who do it in public are sick exhibitionist freaks.

    Any woman who breast feeds in public should be charged with felony sexual abuse of a child, have her kids taken from her and put into foster care, and be forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life once she gets out of prison."


  3. It's infuriating that this is still even an issue.
