Shaming Women For Breastfeeding ‘Discreetly’ Is Just As Bad As Telling Them To Cover Up

Shaming Women For Breastfeeding âDiscreetlyâ Is Just As Bad As Telling Them To Cover Up

Public breastfeeding shouldn’t be controversial, but unfortunately we live in a society where it is. Countless times we’ve seen women shamed, asked to cover up, and even asked to leave places for the simple act of breastfeeding an infant. That sort of shaming is hurtful and ignorant.

I didn’t plan to be an old mom. I got married at twenty-three and wasn’t even sure I wanted kids. That ambivalence toward motherhood stretched through the first several years of my marriage. I didn’t think parenting was for me—I’d never babysat as a teenager or changed a diaper in my life.

10 Racist Costumes For Kids You Can Actually Buy In The Year 2014

It’s finally October, which means we can soon look forward to seeing cute kids parading around in their costumes: little baby ghosts, kittens, favorite cartoon characters, and … gross racial stereotypes? Ew. It’s the year 2014, and you can still pop into most online and brick-and-mortar costume shops and outfit your kid in the most outdated mishmash of faux cultural tropes.
