I was bottle fed, as were my sibs. In those days women did not get =
"help" in learning to breastfeed so it was bottle time, wet-nurses =
having gone out of fashion (1930s, Tony, not 1950s) And I never had =
BUT I am numb with disbelief that ANYONE should equate "adult" with =
antipathy to nursing a baby in a room with the senescent! We have =
"adult" beverages, also known as booze. Major cause of illness, =
violence, dreadful accidents, and so on. We have "adult" magazines and =
movies, that show how human anatomy and human functions can be degraded. =
But being in a room with a nursing baby is un-adult!
I do not go to things--and I just learned another reason why. We are =
not that far from a time when other voices banned people from other =
rooms: non-Caucasians, Jews, out of the closet homosexuals...oh., =
before I forget, WOMENS. The women, I see, still are only partially =
accepted: if you're a nursing mom leave baby and breasts home, because =
we don't think breast feeding is adult. While we are in the compromise =
mode, only Reform Jews, light skinned Afro-Americans, and well closeted =

Many cultures ban women who are menstruating from religious gatherings, =

those two groups should be banned from the ClayArt Room.
Be of good courage

Gosh Lili, how often do I have to make the point?
this has NOTHING to do with
the righteousness of breast feeding !!!
Please ... I think one day even primal mommie
will have to blush and laugh over the fact that
she was actually lecturing aging hippies and
artists on how to behave around a nursing Mom.
I doubt there will be five people in the room whose
children were not breast fed.
Let us give this topic a rest ...
