Boobophobes

It's a BOOB!

Help, help, I might see a breast! Or at least the side of a breast. If you think this cover is gross, or icky or inappropriate ("think of the children!"), maybe you should just lock yourself in your house and not come out at all. Anyplace a woman can bring her baby is an appropriate place to breastfeed. Seems like a lot of people have the idea that it's their right to not see certain things when they venture out into public. The list of things that people can reasonably expect not to see in public is a lot smaller than some people realize. You may see a woman breastfeeding, or two men kissing or holding hands, or a someone wearing tight clothes, or someone wearing white shoes after labor day, and there's nothing wrong with that!

I'd prefer not to see stupid people when I'm out, can we make them stay home?

Well, I got a hat tip from Shakes which was cool, and of course her post was much better than mine. But once the title 'boobophobes' popped into my head, I had to post something.

Isn't aversion to the female greast some kind of DSM-IV classification? If not, we should christen one. "Titophobia" sounds right to me.

You're right about the lactation thing. But you're completely wrong about the white shoes after Labor Day thing. How tacky!

Okay, just look at how cute that baby is. Doesn't that just distract from everything else about that cover?

Ooh, I just wanna kiss those little cheekers...what a googly-goog!
