Particularly for those who have not breastfed/had children/been around people who have breastfed, I can see how they are shocked or uncomfortable around women who are not discreet when breastfeeding. I am not saying it's right, but I can certainly understand it.

There are a heck of a lot of norma, things that people take issue with. A lot of women scorn at attractive women, I don't think attractive women should be housebound or obly leave the house in tracksuits.
Even my usually understanding, left-wing employer tells me that he doesn't want to see homosexual couples in public.
Some people are uoset by the sight of a newborn because they haven't been able to have one.
A lot of people are offended by the sight of a baby being fed with a bottle.
Some people are uncomfortable and rude toward those with physical disabilities.
I'm sure you woukd agree with me that none of the above should give into our backward society, why is breastfeeding any different.
I would never ask a mother feeding her baby with a bottle to do it under a blanket out of "respect" to those around them, breastfeeding mothers should absolutely be able to use their legal right of feeding their baby in public without scrutiny.
If mothers don't feel safe feeding in public, I fear that even more mothers who desperately want to breastfeed will not succeed.
