I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

I Love My Parents And I'm Not Embarrassed By Them

They have always been there for me when times were tough and the fact that their love is unconditional is amazing.


I am so grateful for many things in my life. I have an amazing boyfriend, for the most part, I like school, I have the best group of friends, but I wanted to highlight two very special people in my life. My parents! They have always been there for me when times were tough and the fact that their love is unconditional is amazing. Have we disagreed? Definitely, but who hasn't disagreed and fought with their parents?

I have always been close with my parents and could always tell them everything - I still do to this day. I know I need to keep in touch more but college gets hectic. I have always told many people that if my parents and family moved up to New York my life would be complete, even though my father would never leave his home state. However, when they visit, it's always really nice and refreshing. We just talk about our lives and my gorgeous dogs, of course.

When they leave, it's sad, but I always feel a little more motivated to do well and not give up. Even if we're miles apart, I could still go to them and tell them why I'm feeling down. They listen and support me, and although they put in their input sometimes, they are trying to do what is best. When they tell me about home, it breaks my heart that they work so hard and they don't get what they deserve. The fact they adopted and rescued two dogs, were fair with me, and work their buts off inspires me.

When I was younger, my mother told me that I had to do my homework on my own and that has stuck with me. That doesn't mean they didn't encourage me to get help. They encouraged me to speak up when something was wrong and if I needed help.

Mom and Dad, I love and miss you two so much. And if Autumn and Troy get upset, I'll write an article about them, later.
