Cover that Tit, you cow.

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Chanting "Got milk," 50 mothers staged a protest "nurse-in" at a Houston shopping mall after one of them said security guards asked her to cover herself or move on while breast-feeding her 4-month-old son.

Women, we are our own worst enemy. We scream about perceived slights and insults, and we react in such ways that we cause reasonable people to discount us when we truly do have a legitimate point.

What, What, What in the world was that woman thinking? What is the big issue surrounding being a little discrete? What was so out of line about being asked to put a towel or a thin receiving blanket over your shoulder to cover your crusty, swollen, lactating tit in the middle of a shopping mall populated with people who not only don't want to see it, but see no reason why they should be forced to see it?

Instigator of the action was Julie Doyle-Madrid, who said that a few days before a female security guard admonished her to cover up while she was feeding son Will and another said the mall preferred that nursing be done in more private places like the rest room.

All you "Kids" who hang your breasts out for the world to see don't have a clue about what it was like for mothers who chose to breast feed back when you were children. They arrested women for breastfeeding. Period. It took strong women with the common sense to breastfeed discretely to change both public opinion and the laws at the time. And what they accomplished was a good thing.

If people do not want to see women nursing their children, "Don't look," Doyle-Madrid told the Chronicle.

No, don't hang out your tit! Most women have a modicum of modesty and either pump and bottle for the mall, or sit in the lounge/sitting area most large department stores provide for woman shoppers. But by demanding your perceived right to be exhibitionists, you do nothing but show yourselves as spoiled children and dishonor those who have given you the right to breastfeed, and you should be ashamed.

And all you LaLeche Leaguers who back this shit, get real. This nonsense might work on your communes or in your little ladies group meetings, but this doesn't play in the real world.

There's nothing wrong with mothers nursing, if they use some descretion.
The recent passing of Marlon brando brings to mind a scene from a movie. Imagine Michael Moore nursing, "The Horror", "The Horror"

Someone take the gun from that gaurd and shot him in the foot. He has no brains so do not
shot him in the head. Asking a mother to feed
her child in the toilet. Is that not against
health code violations.
