Thumbs down Apparently I'm a pervert! MAJOR VENT!

I went to a baby shower today and brought Gus. Well toward the end I had to nurse him and most of the girls were gone by then. This one girl announced that she couldn't believe I was breastfeeding. I asked why is it so hard to believe? She said (her exact words) "I just wouldn't want my baby sucking on my tittie, that is perverted"! I was floored!!!!!!! I wanted to ask her what was so perverted about feeding my baby but I let it go. There was a million things going throuhg my mind, 1 being how trashy is to even say something like that out loud, but I kept my mouth shut. I just can't believe people think that way! And even if they do why would she blurt it out? I am part humiliated part furious! Oh, and she then goes on to tell the people left in the room how much she hates seeing people breastfeeding babies at a year or so old. She said she had a cousin who nursed till her child was 2 years old and she said it is just sick! I still sat there with my mouth shut, I was just smiling by this time, but was seething on the inside!

OMG how incredibly stupid of her to say!?! It would upset and anger me too but you shouldn't take it too hard since all she did was show everyone who was left there how uneducated she really was!!!

I think breastfeeding is a beautiful thing and I hope to do it some day with my children!!! And if my baby wants to feed until he/she is 2 years old then SO BE IT!!! It's your decision on how you want to feed your son!

Just a quick question... does she have kids? Probably not I would imagine!

She has 3 kids. And you know, I can totally understand some people being wierded out by it, my sister straight up could not do it. That is their business, I'd never push my views on them. But I am just floored that someone would make it their place to say something like that!

she's super stupid.

Its times like that that I toss out my pre-programmed responses.
one like "I see we still have alot of educating still to do on the benefits of breastfeeding. "

And, assuming she's a person without children - I'd probably spout off something cutting to her like "well, if you ever manage to have children of your own, you will likely find that there are a whole bunch of things you'll end up doing you never thought you will. Being a parent has a habit of putting people in their place."

There is something seriously wrong with some people. I can't believe you were able to stay quiet. You are far stronger then me, I would have turned it around and completely humilated her. I didn't know nurishing your baby with what mothers are naturally supposed to feed them with was disgusting or perverted. I can't believe she's a mother, she sounds like an uneducated 13 year old girl.
