NIP, and on FB
momstown Kingston is following a local story of a family that left a burger restaurant after the breastfeeding mother was treated poorly by servers.
Right now, a local “nurse-in” is planned to protest restaurant staff’s actions.
Over at Today’s Parent, blogger Emma Waverman writes about Facebook’s statement that it supports pictures of women “actively engaged in breastfeeding,” and mentions that perhaps this will help normalize breastfeeding and help uptight people unclench over a perfectly natural thing that happens to involve — gasp! — boobies.
“Brelfies” are here to stay, and unlike most selfies, they may be making the world a better place. I would definitely rather see someone post a photo of breastfeeding than another Kardashian cleavage shot. And yet, it is the breastfeeding pics that are more likely to be taken down,” Waverman writes.
We agree with Waverman: Either get over it or keep on scrolling.
If you don’t like how anyone eats, it’s not their job to hide, and it’s not your business to call a server, a manager, or mall security. Either unclench or look away.
