Mom Squirts Breastmilk At Woman After Being Told She's "Distracting" Her Husband
Breastfeeding is one of the most natural things in the world. According to the NHS, breastfed babies have a lower risk of childhood leukemia, sudden infant death syndrome, infections, and various other ailments. Breastfeeding is also beneficial for moms and has the potential to reduce the risk of them developing breast and ovarian cancer, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and obesity. So, with so many potential advantages, it's no wonder it's often said that "breast is best."
However, because society has sexualized breasts, many women are pressured into covering up in public - an act which could make it difficult to for them to feed their children, something which, as I'm sure you'll agree, is a basic human right.
Thankfully, moms are now fighting back against the sexualization of breasts and choosing to feed their children in public - and I'm all for it. There is nothing sexual about a mother breastfeeding her baby, and if you think that there is, there is clearly something wrong with you and your inability to see women as anything other than sexualized creatures.
That's why when one mom was scorned by another woman for breastfeeding in front of her husband, an act which she said "distracted" him, she decided to defend herself in the best way possible - by squiring her breast milk at his moaning wife.
The incident was publicized on the Dartford Gossip Facebook page where the woman complained about the mother:
"To the lady Darford park who thought it was appropriate to breastfeed her baby whist my child and very easily distracted husband sat near by. I don't think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private, telling me to [blank] off and squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for. I hope you are ashamed of yourself! [sic]"
Needless to say, the post quickly garnered a lot of attention on the social media website. While some agreed that the woman was wrong to ask the mother to breastfeed her child in a private place, they believed that her reaction was extreme.
Others, however, praised her the mom showing the "distracted" man's wife that breastfeeding moms are not to be messed with.
Some Facebook users even used the incident as an opportunity to berate the woman, mocking her husband for being so easily distracted by a breast, despite the fact that he has a wife and child and - one would presume - has seen one before.
Others pointed to the wider problem exposed by the incident: because so many people have an issue with moms breastfeeding their children in public, many are choosing not to and potentially putting their own and their child's health at risk.
According to the Daily Mail, more than half of British moms don't breastfeed their children in public because of embarrassment. And those who do tend to stop breastfeeding their children after just two months, despite the fact that it is recommended that moms breastfeed six months and then use a combination of breast and formula milk until their babies are a year old.
And while the internet was, thankfully, almost exclusively on the mom's side when it came to breastfeeding her child, some of the more extreme reactions to the incident claimed that what she'd done was assault because it involved bodily fluids.
What do you think of the mom's reaction? Was she right to defend her right to breastfeed but took it a step too far by squirting milk at the woman who berated her for distracting her husband? Let us know in the comments section.
