I am not saying the law should change, I am not saying people shouldnt stand up for what they believe in, I am not saying that people shouldnt breastfeed in public...............I am just trying to offer up the flip side of these kinds of protests and, as usual, am picking the brains of hubbers because I am genuinely interested to see what other peoples opinions and views are on different subjects. Im rarely arguing, more just saying 'ohh ok..but what if..' sort of thing.
I do wonder what would happen if a mother was asked to leave a venue or cover her baby while she fed her baby with a bottle?
I know a lot of people have strange opinions of babies being fed with bottles, and going by some attitudes I have heard about bottle-fed babies I have no doubt there are some people who are uncomfortable seeing them being fed with bottles (I'm not one of them at all btw).
Personally, I would hope that other mothers would also band together and let people know that this kind of discrimination is not okay. I get the feeling that because this is part of the sex discrimination legislation people don't take it as seriously but in my opinion it is no different to discriminating based on disability, sex, race or sexuality.
I know you're not arguing and I totally get where you're coming from I really don't think anyone is taking your responses as argumentative, but answering your genuine queries.
London, I love you
As for pretty much all protests (even if I agree with what they're upset about), I just don't care. I think a lot of people are like that and the protesters are just seen as annoying (to me anyway). I used to get really involved in these things and be very opinionated but now I just think 'mm get over it.'
I have heaps more to add but can't be bothered right now lol, so I might comment again later elaborating.
