The people are divided when it comes to this issue because some believe that it’s a natural thing, which is a fact while most believe it should only be done in private. It’s quite sad because nursing mothers are criticized and discriminated for doing what is natural. And a lot of nursing moms also want to go out of the house and nurse their babies as needed without feeling they have to hide something because it makes others uncomfortable. The act itself is not offense but it’s probably seeing a woman’s bust exposed in public is what drives people insane.

Adults eat anywhere and anytime they want without having the need to hide in private and so should babies. There’s more to nursing than just about a woman exposing her chest.

More than 57% of the American public population are uncomfortable with public nursing and only 42 states have laws that protect women’s right to nurse in public, but many mothers are still being asked to move into private areas like bathrooms to nurse. To prove that, a social experiment on Youtube was shown. Even pumping milk is seen as an abominable thing. There were many varied reactions from both men and women from revulsion to apathy. A different woman did the experiment on a train and a man went off on her.
