Bloody Breastfeeding! How Nursing Discrimination Made Me Believe In Goddesses
via ***The GirlieGirl Army*** By Chloe Jo Davis.
I used to think people who had issues with women breast feeding lived in the bible belt, had missing teeth, and didn’t believe in evolution. Until I lived this tit-tascular tale.
Yesterday morning I finished an average toddler gym class with my 18 month old son. As I was leaving, I popped over to the teachers station to thank them so much for an extra awesome puppet show, calling it their “best one yet.”
The always sweet teacher said, “Oh, I meant to talk to you about something. We’ve gotten a number of complaints from other Mothers about your breastfeeding in the circle, so we have to ask you to nurse in the lobby.”
My mouth dropped open and my first thought was “Wow, someone finally said something” as if I’d somehow expected and waited for a moment of nursing discrimination, since I’d yet to have one.. ever. She went on;
“It’s just that we don’t allow snacks on the gym floor.”
