Really, she does.

It's because it's 'more discreet' that way. And she doesn't want to see someone with 'their baps out'.

Honestly - I am not making this up.

It's in AIBU.

Seems not to be a troll.

I know it's not mumsnetiquette to have a thread about a thread. So I'm not starting a thread. I'm just sort of alerting people.

well given quite a few people think like that some of them have to MNers!

i would suggest if she doesn't want to see anyone's "baps" that she stops looking at women's chests.

that would work too no?

But aren't the people who think like that crusty old Daily Mail readers with a sexual hang up?

FattyArbuckel Thu 13-Jan-11 19:12:06

would she like to eat her meals in the toilet?

Yikes

Oh dear.

Hopefully she will spend enough time on here to educate herself.

Maybe she is from some sort of space time continuum for the 1970's? Ask her if she is having Vesta curry followed by Artic Roll for her dinner and we will find out.

Unfortunately all sorts of people are deeply ignorant and bigoted, even Mumsnetters.
But am shocked, I have to say.

<goes for a nosey on AIBU>

blimey.

i didn't care what people thought when i was breastfeeding, so she would have had to come and ask me to stop. That would have been interesting grin

I used to will people to confront me about breastfeeding so I could tell them where to go. sadly no-one has ever done so.

pagwatch Thu 13-Jan-11 19:32:21

a woman once said to my dh 'wouldn't your wife be more comfortable in the toilet'

'no. she wouldn't.' he replied. pithilly

I think a toilet is the only place I haven't breastfed in grin

Its wisteria12

Its not difficult to find

The names of the posters children are apparently "Atticus, Algernon and Celeste with Cuthbert on the way"

Can I point TikTok in teh direction of a blogpost which she may find good background reading, I think it will put her mind very much at rest.

Best but:"The ability to throw a grenade and no one realise you even did it is something very special. The key to getting it right is perseverance of your position though. You pick your subject, you pick your line, and you stick to however illogical, however nutty, and however much your argument is destroyed by others, you do not move and the reaction just keeps coming thick and fast."

but bit

Round here baps are things you butter and pop cheese on for lunch. hmm

DancingThroughLife Thu 13-Jan-11 19:38:27

I saw it, but decided to back away lest I implode.

Thisisyesterday, me too! Alas, I have yet to receive even a raised eyebrow. Which is how it should be, but I'd still like to have the fight just once.

ramonaquimby Thu 13-Jan-11 19:40:58

but you have started a thread

what's the point? she's not going to change her mind about it so what do you want to get out of this?

(sincerely)

I loathe this sort of thing. I too long for someone to try and give me a hard time about it. It seems I must give off "don't fuck with me" vibes because nobody ever has. Either that or the majority of people are reasonable types who don't think the normal act of feeding a baby human should take place in a lavatory.
