A Missoula, Montana mother was reported to the health department for breast feeding her baby in public.
It seems rather shocking (and sad) that a state would actually have to pass a friggin' LAW affirming that breast feeding a baby in public is not a crime, but here you go:
OK, I suppose it's nice that the folks in Montana want to accommodate new mothers by providing them a place to nurse their children, but why should women be stashed out of sight whenever they need to feed their babies? I happen to find the mastication habits of a lot of people far more offensive than the sight of an infant suckling her mother's breast, so why aren't private feeding rooms (or pods) made compulsory for EVERYONE?
Just in case you're unclear on this, the breast has a specific biological ("God-given," if you like) function in mammals (that's us, in case you skipped that day in Biology class): To provide nourishment to offspring. Breast feeding is highly encouraged by pediatricians and child development specialists. Sure, women can make use of a breast pump and bottles, but fresh breast milk is best for the child.
Seriously, if you're reading this (or if you're the dipshit who called the Health Department on the mother in Missoula) and you're one of those people who can't see even a small part of a bare breast without getting a hard-on or recoiling in horror because now you're going to hell, you need to grow the hell up and get over your titty fetish. Really, SEEK HELP!

I wanted to play around with some photos of my cute new turquoise lamps from Ikea, so of course Simon finished his nap and decided HE had to be front and center. As usual, it turned out that this one with him is my favorite shot of the bunch!
