A Labour MP is introducing a Bill in Parliament in order to "end discrimination" against mothers who breastfeed.

Sometimes, I don't understand the furore surrounding breastfeeding. That's WHY women have breasts, isn't it?! Surely all women should breastfeed their babies, since this is the natural method of feeding infants. I doubt Mitochondrial Eve, all those millenia back, bottlefed her children.

Of course, it should be property owners who can determine whether women can breastfeed, not the goverrnment. Personally, I'd consider it offensive to see a woman exposing her breast in public. But if a property owner permits it, then there is little I can do about it (apart from complain to him/her), is there?
