For those puritans shocked by the sight of a real live breast adorning Baby Talk magazine, or even those shocked by those who were shocked… remember, it could be much worse. Last month someone got stoned (as in, pelted with heavy rocks) in Ethiopia for simply breastfeeding in public. Further shocked was visiting world humanitarian and sometimes U2 band member, Bono. Reports CBS2 Chicago:
“The American woman was oblivious of the offence she was causing, and had to escape the angry onslaught from female Muslims who had no qualms about injuring her or her baby.
“One of the women was breast-feeding a child on the horse. She was so comfortable. She didn’t mean to be insensitive.
“But the Muslim women did not like this and came out and started throwing stones at her because she was showing her breasts.”
When breastfeeding in public, be discreet. Duck behind a nearby Joshua Tree.
