Is there something wrong with breast-feeding?

Woman starts breast-feeding kid in a plane. Flight attendant tries to give her a blanket so that she can cover up. She declines. Flight attendant calls ticket agent. The lady and her family are removed from the plane.

What comment can one make about such nonsense? The whole idea that showing a breast (a female one, that is) in a public place is wrong in some way is twisted, a perversion itself. (It is a different matter that in this case, the lady says that "she was seated by the window in the next-to-last row, her husband was seated between her and the aisle and no part of her breast was showing.") The people who think like this should just wear T-shirts that say, "Breasts are evil. Slobber slobber."

Pah, and suchlike.
