Sexualization and objectification involves taking something and making it out to be an object rather than a living thing, and making it seem like it is a sexual thing when it really isn’t. Everyday, people frown upon women for breastfeeding in public because their breasts are supposedly too “sexual” to show any part of in public. There are also chain restaurants, or “breastaurants” that require waitresses to wear revealing outfits to show off their bodies. However, in other types of establishments, such as bars, strip clubs, or burlesque bars, women are degraded and frowned upon for showing off their bodies. Honestly, the sexualization and objectification of women’s bodies is a problem and needs to stop.
But putting a nursing baby anywhere near those women's breast and suddenly people are offended. Yes, breast are a woman's private part but women don't flaunt them around while breastfeeding to show off. Some mothers would rather use a blanket to cover themselves up while breastfeeding than to have sexually or disgusted comments directed to her. Others believe “formula was made for these reasons” (Campoamor). People suggest mothers using baby formula and breast pumps, but sometimes a mother would rather have this intimacy with her child.
It is no ones business but the mothers how... ... middle of paper ... ...s miss less work. If people were more accepting of the perfectly normal act that is breastfeeding; it would become so normal that it would no longer be seen as a problem or be made a big deal of and women wouldn't be so afraid to breastfeed their children. Breastfeeding in public needs to become a regular thing; so it is not deemed unusual and made a big deal of. There is no valid reason as to why a woman should be denied the right to breastfeed her child in public.

Our many focus should be not on how your feeding you’re baby but, on the mother and child’s well being. It shouldn’t matter how you do it, breast or bottle. Yes breast is best, but not everyone is capable of breastfeeding and that is why there is formula. What should really matter is that you made the choice to do what is best for yourself and your baby. People should stop judging each other due to how they feed their child or what they view as acceptable or not.
There is no other single action by which a mother can so impact the present and future health of her baby” (Why is Breastfeeding so Important 1). This topic is crucial to the future to our humanity by giving the future generation the best chance for prosperity in life. In American society mothers are often passed judgment on for feeding their children in public. The government, hospitals and society in general are to blame when it comes to general knowledge about breastfeeding. Although most states have a clarity law in which the government has set forth to allow women to breastfeed in public without being arrested for indecent exposure, no federal law addresses this specifically.

Again, there are different ideas of what is considered pornographic from artwork, movies, and books. While one may look at a painting that depicts nude forms or read a book that includes sexual acts may not see this as a form of pornography while others would find it morally offensive. Feminist would argue that the morality of porn is it is degrading and humiliating to those involved, not of its sexual nature. Their concern is that it promotes sexism and violence against women or children. “What is objectionable about pornography…is its abusive and degrading portrayal of females and female sexuality, not its content or explicitness” (Rodgerson & Wilson, 1994) However, others may feel that it is sexually liberating and in no way degrading to those involved.
Breastfeeding is the most natural way a mother can provide nutrients to her child for healthy start in their development. On a daily basis breastfeeding mothers are asked to remove themselves from public spaces because society believes that this instinctive occurrence is indecent exposure! Women have every right to breastfeed their children wherever they see fit because it is not illegal, it sets an example of motherhood to younger generations and social marketing does more harm than a nursing mother. Society ought to show compassion to mothers who breastfeed in public rather than humiliate them for doing what is natural. This essay will discuss the vitality of breastfeeding in public along with the trials and tribulations mothers face while doing so.
Some view prostitution as a business, selling goods and services to make a profit, but others view it as morally wrong. Most people think selling one’s body for money should not be promoted, but others simply see prostitution as business. Critics of prostitution are concerned with the ethics of the service. They argue that, prostitutes do not have morals because they are having intercourse to make a profit. This also ties into religion; most religious people believe intercourse should be shared between a man and his wife.
Then there are others that will argue that a breastfeeding mother should be able to breastfeed where ever her child needs to eat. Since everyone is allowed to have their own opinion, we can no longer ignore the breastfeeding controversy surrounding the feeding of a baby. Society needs to support and respect a woman that chooses to breastfeed her baby in public. We are all in agreement that a mother needs to feed her baby whether it is bottle or breast. However, there isn’t an agreement on where a mother should be allowed to breastfeed her baby.
