Well I might be the odd man out. I will say I am all for breastfeeding and even a bf doll, but I feel the "bra" that goes with it is what is sexualizing it. Does a girl or boy need to have a special bra with little flowers where the nipples should be? Most people who have kids that pretend to breastfeed do not use a special bra like that( they already know where breastmilk comes from. ) The act of breastfeeding itself is NOT sexual.

It contains magnets that activate the doll

Re: If one more person says that BFing is sexual...

I'm right there with you! What are people thinking?! Boobs are MADE for providing infants with nutrition. Thats what they're there for. The fact that men like them are just a bonus

I have heard it far to many times and it does make me mad. I had to let it go though and just roll my eyes at them. To many ignorant people and if I let all the dumb comments get me, I would be mad all the time.

I wish more people would educate themselves before opening their mouths. I admit I use to be someone who was uncomfortable around breastfeeding, but that was because I didn't grow up around it or personally know anyone who had breastfed. I never thought it was sexual however. Stupid!

Oh and I just had a "discussion" with someone on a friend's FB, he was saying you should not do it in public unless covered because he is a guy and he will look if he saw any breast, along with other comments ( like saying doing so was ok if the mom was super hot ) and also said private things should remain private. I laid into him a bit and finished my comment with asking if he had the same view points when walking by VS or just when breasts were being used for something other then a sexual tool
