Let’s Talk About Sex Baby……and Breastfeeding.
So locally we have had some breastfeeding drama. Drama that has gone way too far, so I am not even going to go down that road of immaturity. I want to disclose something before I begin this post. I never breastfed. I have specific reasons why and it would have been more emotionally detrimental for my children and myself had I forced myself to do so. I tried, but it simply was too much. However, whenever a new pregnant mom has asked me my opinion I have ALWAYS told them to try breastfeeding. I would never and will never put a woman down for how she chooses to feed her children. I don’t put much stock into the alleged statistics that say BF’d children are smarter/healthier/grew faster or whatever else claim that wants to be made (cough cough my 9 year old is taking a physics class at a university cough cough). Statistics can be skewed to show exactly what you want. Children are individuals and should never be raised in a specific box. What works for one is not a guaranteed method for another. Bottom line is….FEED your kids!
My other disclosure, I use the term Breastfeeding Nazi’s to very specific type women. I don’t call ALL bf’ers Nazi’s simply because (1) I mean it in a very negative way and (2) alot of bf’ers are very sweet people that I don’t find to be judgemental at all. It’s the Nazi’s that give bf’ers a bad rap and set women in general back a few years every time one of them opens their mouths. In my humble opinion of course.
So now to the topic at hand. So there was an issue with a woman breastfeeding in a restaurant. I was not there so I am not going to try and speculate how much breast she was showing or if it really matters. What has me very irritated (aside from the childish behavior) is something that certain Nazi’s have been saying. “Breasts should not be sexualized, they have a function”. Ok I agree that they do provide the natural function of feeding our children. I won’t begin to argue that. BUT I call bullshit on breasts not being sexualized. First of all they have a HUGE sexual function. They are an errogenous zone. It is natural for men and women to be attracted to breasts. It is impossible for humans to NOT sexualize the breast. Now I cannot speak for men but when a breast is being used to feed a child I don’t think they are all that hot. Maybe men do? So what? You can’t stop natural urges.
Perhaps these women are these bible-thumpers who feel that god only provided them with the breasts for feeding children? Does that mean they only engage in missionary sex? Or that they only have sex to reproduce and not for recreation? Well, by that very thinking the penis should not be sexualized much since it’s only function is to provide sperm to create a child with.
What the hell do those women think men are looking at at strip clubs? Or are these same women appalled that strip clubs are around?
The whole statement is ridiculous. Breasts are sexual and are functional in a non-sexual way. If they want to de-sexualize their breasts, by all means have at it. It’s America, you have that freedom. But don’t expect the rest of us, whom appreciate sex, breast fondling, and anything else non-missionary, to jump that bandwagon. My breasts are sexualized and I am proud of that!!!!!!!!
