    However in saying that atropos I do personally believe it is a great and important part of the process. Your commitments to getting this message out there are obviously inspired by pure heart and courage. Youre an inspiring woman!

    No they were all different issues. Religion is always a debate that's shoved down our throats. Penis was a joke. Gay rights are always being protested and in the news and so is environmental preservation.

    Think of all the people who were uncomfortable because they thought they'd catch diseases of black people. They thought they were right, they had plenty of support in their views as well.

    Just because someone is uncomfortable around breastfeeding doesn't mean breastfeeders need to accommodate them.

    I'm glad there are people willing to stick their necks out, who ultimately change the shape of the world. Breastfeeding is nowhere near as big an issue as racism, but it is important.

    If you start saying 'don't do that, it makes some people uncomfortable' you just can't draw the line.

    Personally, drunk people make me uncomfortable, and I would love to see alcohol restricted, but it's not illegal, and so the problem is mine, not the drinkers.

    The apathy upsets me too, about this, but also gay rights being thrown around

    When your rights are being stomped on, I hope you have people supporting your crusade, instead of rolling their eyes and burying their heads in the sand because your rights (or lack thereof) are boring to them.

    My cheeky husband just said he thinks 'breastfeeding in the home is a crime against humanity'.

    Yes, he wants a big nurse in at our home!

    In answer to the OP, I think nurse in's are always going to be a much more powerful tool than simply boycotting and think what the nurse in ladies did today was awesome.

    * Note* this is all tongue in cheek as I'm a breastfeeding Mum with a very pro breastfeeding DH*.

    Don't get me wrong, I think protest can be useful and I love protesting when people are passionate about an issue. People coming together for a common goal is awe-inspiring.

    It's just that I don't believe, in regards to a coffee shop or similar, boycotting nor a nurse-in are going to do much at all long-term.
