Re: the Applebee's story has been FARK'd! How cool!

don't be scared off from the site There are plenty of idiots, but ample opportunities for educating.

I've been a TotalFarker for something like 4 years and I've seen it go from about 95% against public breastfeeding to about 50%. That's progress It ain't perfect but the more we're out there educating the better the chances of impact kwim?

/and yes, there are a LOT of stupid, adolescent males on the site.

Re: the Applebee's story has been FARK'd! How cool!

oh I love Farking around as sometime they have the only real stories around!

Glad to see that story made it as well!

In my state I am allowed to breastfeed anywhere public or private. YAY! And I have done so recently!

I feel sorry for that momma...I hope she doesn't ever see some of those comments. Insane that they wouldn't mind if some Hollywood model strutted in to nurse her baby but because this woman weighed more than 100lbs, she should just stay home

I hope it somehow gets the point across to some of the people....what I read there didn't seem to be much more than a bash the overweight nursing mom and post pictures of pigs as comparison. There are quite a few ignorant comments and the put-downs are just childish....that mother is a fellow human. I can't stand people that think they are so much better than others that they have to put others down....I feel sorry for that mama.

Re: the Applebee's story has been FARK'd! How cool!

I love how some of the commenters said she should have gone to a "kid friendly" restaurant. Hello? It's freakin' Applebee's! We're not talking about a fine dining establishment here. Can you get much more kid friendly? Maybe she should be nursing in the ball-pit at McDonald's Playland. Or next to the skeeball machine at Chuck E Cheese...

*slaps forehead*

And the "typical fat women" remark....oh my, wasn't that special. I wonder, if Angelina Jolie was sitting in a booth breastfeeding one of her tribe whether that would be acceptable? Is it only "indecent" when its a boob we don't want to see?

Ha, this comment is great:

"My wife breastfeed my 4 kids, and each time we'd go out to eat, she'd bring a small bottle of formula just in case. Seriously folks, it's called consideration."

And this one:

"Aren't kids fed on some type of schedule and shouldn't the parent be responsible for accommodating to this schedule? Or is this why so many kids turn out fat because there parents feed them constantly and whenever they hear the first little whimper. Not a parent so I don't know but does a baby not eat three times a day like most people or are they fed more?"

This is the best:

"Babies have serious problems if they breastfeed too long, and it is common sense why. Problems include:
# lower IQ
# more allergies and asthma
# increased risk of many diseases

Why? Because kids need to eat some random food and dirt to get various other nutrients and build up their immune systems.

Why would you breastfeed that long?"

WOW, I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW STUPID SOME PEOPLE ARE! AND I ALSO HOPE THIS POOR MOTHER NEVER GOES TO THAT ..... LOVELY SITE (as in the majority of people who post there)
