It is troubling to me sometimes to see how society views women. First there's the obvious peddling of various products that have nothing to do with sex or women, yet somehow all the advertising is blantantly sexualizing women. Then there's this constant pounding in of the idea that women need to be on BC -- not just for contraception, though, but because periods and just the regular functions of our bodies are bad. But the one that REALLY gets me is the reaction of so many people to breastfeeding.
I just don't understand why people are SO grossed out/offended by it. Why is it SO awkward for a man to be in a room where a women is discreetly feeding her infant, yet that same man loves checking out the barely-dressed cheerleaders at an NFL game? It's just crazy that apparently a woman isn't supposed to allow her body to function in a natural way.
