Haha this is the best.
i dunno i think the best is where he thinks women who breastfeed in public should go to jail.
Shizzle wants so many people jailed that you kind of come to expect comments like that.

I've seen more boob displayed on women wearing tank tops than women breastfeeding in public.

Bet if the woman had been hawt, not with a baby, and showing a bit of nipple, peeps wouldn't have been offended.

This has been my experience also, and it seems to be similar throughout the country. I've never experienced the militant boob wielder syndrome when it comes to breast feeding though even in the most conservative states, some women who might be better off showing less cleavage seem determined to present as much as possible. Cleavage is either great or not, and some women don't understand that 200lbs of fat tit isn't exactly something to be flaunted.

When I have happened to notice someone breast feeding in public it is almost by accident since they are generally rather low-key about it.

And even if they did, who gives a fuck? It's just a boob.
Matt also has the answer to this question.

but to answer your question public nudity laws prevent women from going topless, so if you were walking around topless in most public places you'd probably be breaking a law. however doing so unintentionally or accidentally is not cause for arrest in most states.
Women go through very complicated structure building with blankets to be as discreet as possible in public. my wife had it down to a science. One friend of ours wasn't all that demure and would just pull out her boob and put the baby on it. I wouldn't say it was public nudity, because the boob seldom lingered...

but again: it's not disgusting or sexual just because it's a female body part. It's skin. I just don't see what the big deal is.

here are some other people with interesting opinions on breastfeeding

http://thinkprogress.org/health/2011...-unemployment/

http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1868177216521

my grandmother has some pictures of me pretending to breastfeed my dolls when iw as like 2- 3 years old. I was imitating my mom, aunts, etc.

i would have probably loved the breastfeeding doll.

not all women go through the blanket process because not all babies latch on super easy, apparenrly. there are ways to do it discreetly without the blanket. having your boob out for a second is much different than taking your boob out, going for a jog around the mall, and then popping your tit in your kid's mouth.

in all seriousness, what is the problem with this? it's out there for like a split second if that. I've seen plenty of women feeding without a blanket who do pretty much the same thing and i've never seen exposed nipple.

howevre, i've seen teenagers pop out of their tank tops several times. I myself unintentionally flashed an entire airplane once.

Just a few seconds ago you guys were like "no one ever just whips out a tit...they're super demure about it" and now you're all "well, what's wrong with just whipping out a tit?"
