When did breastfeeding your baby become indecent exposure?
When exactly did breastfeeding your baby become “indecent exposure”?
So today I was sat in a car park with my two youngest and a woman in her 50s bangs on the window to ask me to stop “doing THAT”. When I asked if she meant breastfeeding and pointed out she couldn’t actually see anything anyway she replied “yeah but we all know what you are doing which is just as bad and basically indecent exposure…I’m going to report you!”
I’m not actually sure who she thought she was going to report me to!
She asked me if I was “some new age hippy or part of a weird cult” – what a very strange thing to say. I’m not sure why she was going around peering in car windows anyway so I asked her how long she had been part of the ‘breastfeeding police’ and suggested she re-direct her attention to some of the real crimes of society.
She went on to ask me what was wrong with the powdered ‘stuff’ from the supermarket!
I told her I had neither the time or energy to have that debate with her and put the car window up.
