    Exactly, I wonder if he had of made a racist or homophobic comment would we even be debating it? Or is it only ok because we are talking about the minority of women and children?

    Yes

    Yep, because when you're offending women by going against something that's regarding them that's protected by law, it's not a case of discrimination, it's just the wimmens being the crazy wimmens.

    This kind of gets though. No, no one has the right to an opinion that discriminates. I don't go around saying something racist and then say I have a right to that opinion, cause no, you don't.

    Exactly. So why all the hate around women and children people?

    Because women are bored attention seeking housewives with nothing better to do.

    I prefer to think it's because we know how to do two amazing things. Give birth. And provide nourishment. And that makes the nasty minority jealous. And threatened.

It was a one hour train ride, I had no choice but to feed him there and then, but I've never felt so self conscious and anxious and stressed out whilst feeding

    To be honest I'm counting down the days until DS weans now, such a horrible feeling but I hate the thought of people thinking I'm feeding in public just to flash a bit of skin to whoever is watching or to make a point.

    I'm not hating on anyone, but I couldn't do either of those things.

    But no jealousy here. I figure I do heaps of amazing things anyway...
