A FB friend (more of a FB acquaintance) posted this status today-
I may well be in a minority here and yes I'm fully aware that it's a perfectly natural thing. But is there really any need to post pics on Facebook of breast feeding your baby? I'm more than aware that I may well stumble across it from time to time in a public place, but to consciously post it, I think says more like look at my tits than look at my adorable baby

3 women have told him basically to get his head out of his arse and he has compared bf pics on facebook to having a w*nk in public. I'm trying to decide whether or not to post something and thought I'd open it up to the jury of MN!

PoppySausage Tue 20-Jan-15 00:07:50

Yes, post something. I'm sure lots of helpful people will be along shortly with suggestions.

Horrible comparison

MumsyFoxy Tue 20-Jan-15 00:09:45

What a moron!

Discopanda Tue 20-Jan-15 00:09:50

I do love a good old Facebook debate!

ImLizawithaZ Tue 20-Jan-15 00:11:45

Sounds like he's looking for attention. He's the tit!

ChickenMe Tue 20-Jan-15 00:13:23

Yes I would post. He's entitled not to approve of bf but unfortunately for him there's nothing he can do about it because it is protected by law. And his comments make him look pretty immature anyway with a boob fixation. Perhaps he needs breastfeeding?

binspin Tue 20-Jan-15 00:15:21

Id just delete him. Sounds like a twat anyway.

Theboodythatrocked Tue 20-Jan-15 00:17:20

Tell him to have a public wank and post it in protest. grin

Look obviously he's a prat but then I really don't think it's interesting to see pictures of breast feeding on fb either.

In a cafe of course. In RL yes feed but it's not really something that deserves a medal or adoration. I bf my kids anywhere and everywhere but what's the deal? Who cares really. Certainly wouldn't have bothered taking a picture of it.

I wouldn't take one with a bottle stuffed in its gob either.

But he's still a twat.

Just reply- Is there really any need to post ANYTHING on Facebook? No, just don't look at the stuff you don't find interesting dear, that is how I avoid being bored by inane pictures of you out on the lash for example.

Suggest he tries to arrange a public wank-in. A group of like minded men can meet inside Costa and have a good old wank. The subsequent arrests might make him see that it isn't quite comparable to feeding a child his or her breakfast/lunch/dinner.

FightOrFlight Tue 20-Jan-15 00:28:38

He sounds a very enlightened chap.

I do think it's a little odd to post a picture of yourself breastfeeding on Facebook though - is it the new 'selfie'? Perhaps it's a statement about pictures of breastfeeding mums being removed when porn etc. is removed.

I breastfed both children in public places (perhaps even 'ostentatiously' according to some) but wouldn't have taken a snap of it for the family album.

The only exception would have been if I was that BF mum who was upside-down doing yoga and her daughter decided to feed. That is an awesome picture and I'd have had it blown up life size and hung in my front room grin

Dammit, x-posted with theboody grin

FightOrFlight Tue 20-Jan-15 00:30:47

* when porn is not removed

Theboodythatrocked Tue 20-Jan-15 00:31:10

grin just thinking of lots of men wanking in costa!

Oh dear! Latte anyone? Cream? grin

RandomNPC Tue 20-Jan-15 00:34:31

He's a man, and he's scared of a few boobs? hmm

LRDtheFeministDragon Tue 20-Jan-15 00:36:06

I have never seen a picture of a breastfeeding woman, on FB, where I could see more than the baby's head and about as much boob as you might see from the average low cut top. In fact, I only notice which pictures are 'mum cuddling baby' and which are 'mum feeding baby' when they're captioned as such.

I think, surely, people take pictures because babies feeding get that blissed-out look, and it's cute? No more than that?

TooOldForGlitter Tue 20-Jan-15 00:37:34

I might avoid Costa tomorrow...just in-case. I don't want to be offended grin

AlfAlf Tue 20-Jan-15 00:38:48

You have to say something! It's like letting a racist joke slide, it will eat away at you.
I would say, 'you're being a tit', or just plain and simple, 'you're wrong.'

caroldecker Tue 20-Jan-15 00:51:45

Unless he is hoping for a deluge of boob shots to keep him happy.

TinLizzie Tue 20-Jan-15 01:01:34

I don't see why someone NEEDS to post a picture of BF in public? Says more about the person posting such a picture. Call me old fashioned, but what's wrong with just getting on with it and not making it a 'thing' for public consumption?

Theboodythatrocked Tue 20-Jan-15 01:06:53

Yep no costa for me tomorrow either. grin

Agree LRD you can't tell BF generally unless told. Iycwim.

Ask him if he's jealous of bitty!

Blackout234 Tue 20-Jan-15 01:40:49

Well I don't see a need for posting pics of yourself BF, but if you want to then fine. I don't see the need but i dont see a problem either

Mrsstarlord Tue 20-Jan-15 06:21:36

Not sure what his life situation is but I'd be tempted to point out that he's making himself look like a bit of a knob and probably putting most sane women off him for life. the bloody weirdo!

PunkrockerGirl Tue 20-Jan-15 06:31:50

I absolutely defend a woman's right to bf anywhere. Do I want to see pictures of it? Not particularity, no. But he should just ignore/delete If it offends him that much.
He sounds like a complete knobber charming.

My thoughts exactly caroldecker grin
