Thumbs down I'm sick to my stomach!

We were discussing this news article about a woman who got kicked off a plane for nursing, anyhow yada yada, one Mum said she never breastfed cause she thought it was gross, I said may I ask why, and this was her response!

Quote:
I never tried it, but even looking at it makes me think of incest. Again, this is just me, and my opinion, but to me, my breasts are for my husband, not my child. Sorry if this offends anyone, but it just creeps me out.


I said WOW that's all I can say I won't say more cause I am very passionate about it and it would get VERY heated... but how the heck do you respond to something SO closed minded and twisted as that! HOW can you compare BF to INCEST?????

You're right, WOW is about all you can say to someone that believes something like that.

Re: I'm sick to my stomach!

OMGoodness! I know my breast are not for my hubby they are to feed and nurture our son. I just don't get it at all why someone would say that. There really must be more deep seeded issue to start with.

Re: I'm sick to my stomach!

I don't even know what to say. Thats just so.....sad. We live in such an oversexed society. I do have to admit before I breastfed DS, I wondered if I was going to be able to do it. I thought it might make me feel weird, since the only thing I had used them for before was sex, but I forgot about that mighty quickly after I saw him. Its like your instincts just kick in and you want to feed your baby. And I should add that even though I wondered that about myself, I never thought that when looking at anyone else.

Re: I'm sick to my stomach!

Why on earth would breasts make milk if not to feed a baby with? That is awful of her!

Re: I'm sick to my stomach!

Wow, that is really sad! I was in a TTC group a few years ago with a mama that had the same take on it though. I chose to avoid her most times because she simply didn't understand me. She said the SAME exact thing though, I guess more than 1 person in this world have that exact opinion. It really does go to show us what society has turned into.
