Some people just don't get why breast-feeding moms can't be "discreet" and cover up in public. It makes some people uncomfortable. Not everyone likes to be reminded that we are mammals.

We're animals. Breast-feeding is natural and healthy. Babies need food. Get over it, puritans!

Do people really not have things to do other than police women who are just trying to feed babies? What's the big deal?

Everybody looooooooves breasts until they're actually doing the job they exist for....

The more women are made to feel self-conscious and ashamed about feeding babies in public, the less they will breast-feed, and that has negative health consequences for mothers, babies, and society.

Opponents say it shouldn't be that hard to cover up with a blanket.
