Conduct Unbecoming: If You’re Breastfeeding, You Shouldn’t Be in US Armed Forces . . . Esp if You Pose Topless

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s official: we are Girlieman Nation USA. And it’s infected our Armed Forces.

It was bad enough when male U.S. soldiers were forced to wear fake wombs to feel what it’s like to be pregnant. But now we have breastfeeding chick “soldiers” posing topless, and somehow this isn’t conduct unbecoming? Now, I’m starting to see why gay soldiers wanted the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. They had to do their biz in secret, while these women–who have zero sense of decency or modesty–are letting it all hang out . . . while in uniform. As I’ve said before, if you are a woman with kids, you shouldn’t be in the U.S. Armed Forces. If you are nursing, you definitely shouldn’t be. And if you pose topless–whether you are nursing or not–while in the U.S. Air Force uniform, you should be court-martialed. Male soldiers have been dishonorably discharged for a lot less.

Conduct Unbecoming: US Air Force Natl Guard Exhibitionists Terran Echegoyen-McCabe & Christina Luna Should be Court-Martialed

If I were Al-Qaeda’s chief of propaganda, I’d e-mail the photo below far and wide to show how weak and silly America is. The woman on the right is at least a tad modest. The one on the left–nursing twins–is clearly an exhibitionist ho, and more important, there is absolutely NO way she can be nursing and raising twins and serving our military at the same time. Someone loses, and its probably the Air Force AND those kids. Everyone’s shafted but she gets her slutty exhibitionist fix satisfied. Their names are Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna, and they deserve to be named so that they can be shamed by Google forever (and constantly seen by weirdos with the sick fetish they just satisfied). Sadly, they also shame our brave U.S. men on the front lines. With women like this, I now understand why some people call it the Air Farce. We just got through Memorial Day, remembering the men who died for our freedom and . . . for this???


I’ve already figured out the problem with the chick with the twins and her boobs in full display, Terran Echegoyen-McCabe. She has two last names either because her own father had no testicles and agreed to his daughter’s hyphenated surname to please his masculine, shrewish wife. Or it’s because Ms. Echegoyen-McCabe, herself, is married to such a ball-less “man” and he gave in when she refused to take his surname without a silly hyphen.

These attention-whore chick “soldiers” claimed they did this as a public service promoting breast-feeding awareness. Riiiight. More like they did it to say, “Me-me-me-look-at-me-look-at-my-t–s.” Does anyone think that even one mother who wasn’t going to breastfeed is going to see this picture and say, Okay, I’ll do it. Nope. Won’t happen. We are already aware of breast-feeding. We don’t need your absurd public display to make us more aware. This is nothing more than a vanity photo. Period. But it will inspire more of the continued La Leche League breastfeeding-in-public terrorism that we don’t need. And it’s not the display becoming to anyone wearing the uniform of the United States Armed Forces.

Public displays of affection–even hand-holding–are forbidden while wearing the uniform. If a male soldier gets arrested for exposing himself while in uniform, he now has a precedent for claiming sexism, unless these women are disciplined.

The feminization and chickification of our soldiers’ ranks isn’t anything that’s made us stronger. Photos like this just make us a joke. But they are great for some sicko with a fetish for topless breastfeeding women to masturbate to. So, what makes these women different than those who pose for weird fetish magazines? Nothing.

And that’s the thing: these women have reduced the U.S. Air Force uniform to an accessory in a sexual fetish photo shoot.

Here’s more on this absurdity:

The picture shows two mothers, Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Christina Luna, both in active service, nursing their babies on an Air Force base.

The striking image has seen a flurry of comments, from supporters who say breastfeeding is a ‘fundamental right’ to another who compared it to ‘defecating in uniform’.

The photos were taken for the Mom2Mom Breastfeeding Support Group, set up by a military wife and mother-of-three to raise awareness of all women’s rights to breastfeed in public. . . .

Robyn Roche-Paull, a lactation consultant and a U.S. Navy Veteran wrote a book and has a blog called Breastfeeding in Combat Boots which aims to make women’s position clearer while breastfeeding and serving their country.

As she writes: ‘There are NO polices or regulations in any of the military branches that either approve OR disapprove of breastfeeding in uniform.’

Well, that’s sad. Even sadder, they don’t have the guts to make this illegal.

The public affairs department at Fairchild Air Force Base did not respond to messages for comment.

Of course the Air Force didn’t respond. They are too wimpy to denounce inappropriate behavior while in uniform. We’ve become a nation of wimps where anything goes, especially if it surrenders to the feminist ridiculous.

Congrats, America. We’ve sunk to a new low. The ghost of Bin Laden: still having the last laugh.

***

Read these absurd Air Force regulations on breastfeeding from the site, “Breastfeeding in Combat Boots.” (Here’s a tip: if you have combat boots, you shouldn’t be a mom . . .and probably shouldn’t have a vagina.)

4.16.2.

AF members who are breastfeeding or pumping remain eligible for field training, mobility exercises, and deployment. However, AFI 36-2110, Assignments, supports deferment from deployment for 6 months post partum. AF commanders may consider supporting deferment of deployment for breastfeeding mothers for 12 months post partum to ensure the full medical benefits of breastfeeding.

4.16.3.

The AFMS encourages commanders’ modifications of these activities and/or work conditions for Airmen who are breastfeeding, when possible. Nonetheless, duty requirements may not always be compatible with exclusive breastfeeding. In these cases, the AF member must decide in consultation with her medical provider whether to attempt to continue breast-feeding and/or pumping breast milk. AF Form 469 is not the mechanism for documentation that an AF member is breastfeeding.

Getting a deferment because you are breastfeeding? Um, maybe you shouldn’t be in the Air Force. Do men get deferments like this? No. This is a military organization, not a spa or a nursery. These women clearly cannot serve AND breastfeed at the same time, especially when we are at war.

With BS like this, in the long run we will lose to the Islamic threat we face. The enemy doesn’t engage in this idiocy.

Another avenue of this that I haven’t heard much about is the safety issue. In this day and age of paroled sex offenders, and mental patients being free to roam our society due to budget cuts, does it make much sense to put ones “assets” out there like that? Last week a crazy guy down the street from my parents was parading around his back yard nude. Off this meds? Pushing the limits of free expression? The man was soon visited by the local PD but it could’ve ended worse. Fact is there are a lot of weirdoes out there to be dangling nude breasts in public.

    Samurai:

    Also, depending on the the available pool of recruits, there will be an inevitable sprinkling of people with some real psychological problems. These people might be functional in jobs in civilian environments, but the military quite often does not furnish that environment even when the new recruit is not deployed. Annoying, disturbing, or even arousing(for some)situations are often unavoidable. A civilian worker could ask for a transfer or simply quit the job if the situation became unbearable. That is not a ready option in the military unless you want to blot your record or get something nasty like a general discharge. For a person who is psychologically marginal, these constraints can become unbearable over time. There have been and will be people who snap in such situations, and the consequences can range from upsetting to lethal. Why bait such people for “feel good” reasons?

    Worry01 on May 31, 2012 at 7:30 pm

      Worry, Only a sliver of news out of the military community makes it off base. Some things are very effectively smothered. COMSEC is necessary for several things. Our military has an impossible task, and as a result, they are effective in keeping a lot of stuff out of the news. This story is pretty light compared to the real issues. LIke all the wisdom in having joint patrols with the ANA that result in repetitive tragedies of our troops being gunned down by troops that are supposed to be allied with our own for example. What’s the hold up with Major Nidal Hassan being prosecuted for his murders? These women are part of the reason a lot of Marines refer to female U.S. Air Force members as Marine mattresses.

      samurai on May 31, 2012 at 10:05 pm

        I am not disagreeing with you. It was an effort to stay within the scope of Debbie’s post. Mentally unstable people do manage to get into the military, and various pressures and situations that would be odd in the civilian world sometimes push these people over the edge. Partial or full female nudity(not talking scantily clad)and the increasingly unclear boundaries probably has or could lead to some really nasty outcomes that would leak out despite COMSEC’s best efforts. This is not pilfering cash from the post exchange or snagging some entrenching tools.

        As for Major Hassan, it is fairly evident what is going to happen. After the November election, if President Obama wins, an insanity defense will be accepted. Even though there is really no evidence of mental aberration or breakdown prior to the massacre, this conclusion will be pushed through. Major Hassan was remarkably clear about what his views were of the United States and its Armed Forces for years, if anyone had cared to listen. Also, his emailing that lovely man in Yemen had been monitored by the FBI long before Major Hassan did his dirty deed. There would be no other justification for delaying Major Hassan’s trial other than to have Major Hassan plead to diminished capacity or insanity. No one is claiming that there are any loose ends regarding the man’s guilt. What is amazing is the Republican complicity in allowing the silence to continue.

        Worry01 on May 31, 2012 at 11:29 pm

          Oh I know you weren’t disagreeing. We cool, we cool. You’re on it for sure. You’re posts are always pretty much a mirror of my own opinions.

          samurai on June 3, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Well, first of all, as a taxpayer, I resent having to pay the salaries of these exhibitionistic women. It is a sign of the degeneration of any type of military standards that there is even the need for a discussion about the inappropriateness of their actions. But I guess it is academic because our (mis)leaders are departing from the idea that the military should even be a factor in international relations — I guess they just want to see it as a subsidized form of welfare with the trappings of the military to add a good PR twist.

But in a sense, I can’t blame these women for what they are doing, and I can’t blame the Air Force for not taking any action against them. Think of the recruiting potential of this photo. I’m sure the Air Force (and lots of the women who are there) hope that photos like this will attract lots of guys to join up. More sex, more babies, more welfare, and of course, less fighting.

Just like the photo on Time magazine’s cover was designed to increase circulation, I expect the military to use this photo as a means to increase recruitment. Sex sells. And we know the elite doesn’t care about military standards. How many of them have served?

Little Al on May 31, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Personally, I could not respect a woman who used her gender to impose on others unfairly. If sex is all you want, there are escort services. If some of the women who posted here are examples of what is available in the military, paying for something would be preferable. You would at least be dealing with someone who was honest about who they were and what they did, despite all of the other issues involved with them. The military should not be an institution whose functions include breeding and breastfeeding as part of its core mission. Those who apparently turn to it for such things are not serving their country, but themselves.

    Worry01 on May 31, 2012 at 9:03 pm

But would anyone even pay for these women? If you pay you’d probably want something better.

Little Al on May 31, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    As I said, you would at least be dealing with a more honest person, despite their profession.

    Worry01 on May 31, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Skunky, You obviously totally misread what I said about the Time cover. I said it was disgusting and there was something disturbingly erotic about it, particularly because although the kid is supposedly only 3 they made him look a lot older. I still don’t think discrete breast feeding is improper and by that, I mean as long as flesh is covered. I do think it’s preferable in some places to cover with a shawl but if the woman doesn’t want to suffocate her baby, that’s her choice. I have seen more than one Orthodox Rebbitzen nursing her baby in the synagogue so I will not back down on it being ok if discrete. That’s my objection to the woman on the left. She’s flaunting her chest and the way the babies are being suckled is not the natural, comfortable, nurturing way it should be done.

As for Norman, he said that his urge to pee, he didn’t say within the confines of a loo, was natural but should it be done publicly? Of course not but peeing is not the same as eating. Try to remember, people, these babies are EATING not eliminating or engaging in other private behaviors.

I’ve been on the other side of this question. I did not nurse because my mother had the attitudes expressed here and would have gone into a rage if even my husband saw me doing it. I am still a little squeamish but having seen my daughter nurse 4 of them until toddler age and will probably do with this new one, I got to the place where I can accept it. Also living in a foreign country which is not so hung up, maybe makes a difference.

You can try to libel me with a liberal label. It’s irrelevant. I am a complex person with differing views on individual issues. You might just be surprised how conservative I can be if you got to know me. You might now want to hear my views on non-heterosexuals or abortion for example. I’m an Orthodox Jew in Israel and I will fight tooth and nail with anyone who tries to find “accommodation” for these sins. And on the political side, I think you guys blew it letting Romney get by with the nomination. He’s no Conservative and he’s no better than Obama. But y’all chose to get on blogs and rant instead of hitting the streets while your enemies, YES, ENEMIES worked at the grass roots to bring down America and now your in a disaster. And I could say the same thing is happening in Israel except I learn prophecy and I KNOW that even if it gets bad and we have WW3 soon, we will WIN. GET BUSY and start working on REAL issues. Has anyone bothered to notice the rise in cannibalistic attacks? If you doubt there’s such a thing as demon possession, you’d better think again. The TaNaKh talks about cannibalism in dire times but not even our Scriptures talk about demonism at this level in the End Times.

An abhorrent disgrace.

Txpilot1997 on June 1, 2012 at 8:22 am

My feelings are mixed:

– my daughter was in the National Guard when she became pregnant. She delivered, then continued serving. Her commander had been a nursing mother, and was able to allow her to serve on office duty for several months after returning. During that time, her husband brought the baby into the post to nurse during her lunch break; she used an empty room for that. Otherwise, she pumped. After a few months, she went on regular drill weekends, pumping and dumping the milk (no place to store it).
– after a few months of nursing, you really get relaxed about whipping a booby out. In public, I always used shawls. Some people got grossed out, even then; the noise of the kid (some kids are very vocal about their enjoyment of the meal) bothered them. For people like that, I left the room. With family, I didn’t bother.
– YES, this was inappropriate. OK to nurse, NOT in uniform. Just not right.

LindaF on June 1, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Breast feeding is a natural thing and all women regardless if they are serving the country should not be told not to breast feed their babies. Yes the mother on the left with the twins could have covered better than she did but I feel that this picture shows the strength of a woman in the US Military. It shows that woman can do as a man and should not be told she is less than. It take a hell of a woman to serve, be a mother and a person doing all. This does not make this woman any less of a soldier. Did anyone ever check their record to she what type of report they have in their serve skills, did anyone check to see how many year of service these soldiers put in? No I bet they had not. All people are seeing is breast not the meaning behind the image (woman are capable of many things life puts in front of them).

    cincin on February 20, 2014 at 11:14 am

It’s made the cover of Time, ever eager to stir up the breastfeeding debate :

Uncle Elmer on June 1, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Sooooo – breast feeding means sex?

Tanstaafl jw on June 2, 2012 at 12:05 am

I really don’t see where these gals’ nursing of their babies in any way affects their ability to do their jobs. And as for your ridiculous posturing about them being exhibitionists, just what is it about the female breast that upsets you so? While I’ll grant that a lot of guys get turned on by the sight of a topless woman, there really isn’t anything sexual about a mother breast-feeding her child. I think the sexual connotation you allude to is in your own mind, and Freud would probably have a field day exploring that with you.
And by the way, the lady on the left is exposing no more in the photo than you can find on just about any beach. In fact, I’ve seen a lot of bikinis that were a lot more revealing.
Get over yourself and stop trying to impose your own Victorian attitudes on others… we’re not all so hung up on sex that we see it at every turn.

Doc Sheldon on June 2, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    Doc, your missing the point dude, this article that Debbie wrote is NOT about women breast-feeding in general, as Debbie said between the lines in the article, she has NO problem women breast-feeding their kids in private, BUT it’s doing it in public infront of hundreds and thousands of people, that’s the problem Doc. Let me ask you something Doc, do you find it appropriate to view pornography infront of underage kids? Do find it appropriate that folks engage in sexual behaviors in public infront of tons of people?

    And let me ask you another question Doc, our islamists enemies in the middle east (and southeast asia) will use this specific photo of these two women in uniform while serving in the military breast-feeding their kids as propaganda by forwarding it to “Al-Jazzera” TV tell their viewers how weak our Armed Forces are with female soldiers breast-feeding their kids in the military. And the samething can be said for China, they to will use this picture as propaganda and show it to their citizens in China, Doc, our enemies are LOLing their asses off at us on our inane and PC weakness, don’t you get it?

    And BTW, Debbie is NOT imposing a so-called “Victorian” attitude on us or anybody, she didn’t say that tank-tops, bikinis, mini-skirts, short-shorts, etc. should be banned, I don’t know why the hell you bought up “Victorian”. Enough with the stupid liberal clap-trap PC nonsense!

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on June 3, 2012 at 3:16 pm

      See, there you go, equating breast-feeding with pornography. I guess we either had considerably different upbringing, or I failed to grasp the concept of everything being dirty or pornographic.

      And as the article explains, the “pornography” in question was a private photo-shoot, where both moms were benefiting from at least as much as cover as most bikinis provide. They weren’t on the parade ground during inspection.

      To answer your question about whether I would find it appropriate to view pornography in front of underage kids, the answer is no. In fact, I don’t find pornography interesting at all. To me, it’s akin to watching someone else eat a steak because I’m hungry. And I also don’t feel that anyone should be engaging in sexual behavior in public.

      I think where we’re missing each other is in our respective definitions of what is pornographic or sexual. I find a woman breast-feeding to be a perfectly natural process, as is urination or defecation. Normally, all three are done with some modesty, I’ll grant you. But just because you or I might feel that our sensibilities are offended, does NOT redefine the behavior as pornographic or sexual in nature.

      As for the terrorists and communists, I don’t care what they think or say. If they don’t find something , they’ll just make it up, anyway. The Viet Cong and Chinese did it to us in Nam, occasionally with the help of a liberal or two.

      In closing, by your final remark, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that you’d consider yourself to be a conservative. So we DO have something in common. And your “stupid liberal clap-trap PC nonsense” doesn’t apply to me.
      I’ll stand by my use of Victorian attitude, though. ;)

      Doc Sheldon on June 4, 2012 at 1:49 am

    Well said doc. Breast feeding makes for healthier kids why anyone would have a problem with that is beyond me?

    Gez on June 13, 2012 at 2:42 pm

First off, the women are absolutely not topless. There is nothing more showing here than cleavage that is visible on many tank tops or while wearing a bathing suit, assuming one has cleavage to show.

Why is it that Breast Feeding mothers are viewed as exhibitionists (in the USA) when they are doing the most natural thing in the world, which is feeding their children? If these female soldiers had been photographed in the middle of a battle field scene, which is obviously hazardous, we could talk about safety choices but their pausing to feed their children still has no relevance to conduct unbecoming.

These are not lewd images.

Marj Wyatt on June 2, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    Marj you don’t quite get it, this is NOT about breast-feeding in general, why the hell should DS attack women who breast-feed their kids? She’s NEVER done anything silly like that on this blog of her’s, the problem is these two women breast-feeding their kids in public while serving in the military. Lookit Marj, the US Armed Forces is NOT a regular 9am-5pm job or occupation, serving in the US Armed Forces is a serious issue which is mainley about National-Security protecting everybody within US shores & borders.

    And also, if any female while serving in the military who’s pregnant should be discharge and force to leave, and it’s not being harsh or being a anti-female misogynists, it’s me using common sense and critical thinking. And yes these photos are quasi lewd, as I said to Doc from yesterday Marj, our enemies (mainley the islamists) will use this picture as propaganda on their citizens and indoctrinate them and tell them how weak this country is and our Armed Forces is not strong, etc. Think about what I said Marj!

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on June 3, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Sean R … I get it. Perhaps you don’t recall from your history classes that our government used women in images that were “propaganda” to bring women into the factories in WWII? These images were obviously not taken in a battlefield. Is it even remotely possible that this could be a way to use “propaganda” to make women feel safer in the armed forces?

You write as if you feel that I believe being a soldier is a “normal” job. Nothing could be further from my reality. I came of age during the Viet Nam war. Many of my friends suffered life-long emotional damage from being in the military there so I know it is not a “cushy” job.

My point is, the women are not topless and there is NOTHING lewd about these photographs.

You are entitled to your opinions and I hope you will respect my choice to disagree with you.

Marj Wyatt on June 4, 2012 at 1:29 am

    Why should a woman get discharged for having a child? (Sean) This is crazy its like telling a man who gets a woman pregnant that he can no longer be a soldier either because he is a father. What makes a man better than a woman, nothing at all. Woman do many jobs that men do and have done for years. The hardest jobs are done by women everyday and that is being a mother and if she is a mother and a up standing soldier then she is a hell of a lot stronger than any male soldier. If our enemies see these picture it will just prove one thing, We are stronger.

    cincin on February 20, 2014 at 12:10 pm

First, the ‘true’ issue at hand here is the uniform. It is ‘expressly forbidden’ for our armed services to use their uniform or the wearing of it, to promote a ’cause.’

If you are a conservative, you would not want our servicemen showing up at a pro-life rally, in their uniforms, and if you are a liberal, you would not want them at an anti-abortiion rally in uniform either.

However, calling the women exhibitionists, sluts, hos, etc, is not appropriate either. Anyone who is willing to enter the public eye to support a cause is as exhibtionist to a certain extent, because yes, they do want attention. The whole point of entering the public eye in support of a cause is to bring attention to it.

They aren’t trying to bring attention to their breasts, they are trying to make a statement which will alter the ‘Puritanical’ views about modesty to support their sense of ‘entitlement’ to ‘convenience.’

There is no ‘need’ to breastfeed in public. Mothers can pump, plan their day around feeding times, or find private areas to feed their child in.

The truth is, being a mother, or a father, will be a life filled with ‘inconveniences’ and the need to schedule things.

Choosing to have a child does not mean that the rest of the world must now change to make life ‘convenient’ for you.

No one ‘owes’ you a life of convenience just because you chose to have a child.

Children ARE inconvenient, grow up and get used to it.

Children require sacrifice. From the parents who chose them. It’s not up to ME to sacrifice for YOUR choices.

I am a mother. I did not breastfeed my first child because he was in a level III NICU for the first 6 weeks of his life. The breastfeeding division of the sanctimommy contingent insisted that I should have pumped, and therefore, I see no reason why they can’t also pump to ‘prepare’ for when their children need to be fed during a public outing.

I do not believe for one minute that these women are trying to ‘raise awareness for breastfeeding,’ (the subject doesn’t even warrant the need for raising awareness, we’re all aware that we are mammals, capable of feeding our young from our breasts) but rather are posing for a picture to be seen by the ‘public,’ to support women’s rights to breastfeed in public.

The liberal point of view is that it’s perfectly natural, and that we need to stop looking at breasts as ‘sexual objects,’ but that is idealism and not reality. Men are men, people are people and breasts will always been as sexual objects. Furthermore, it should not matter if my ‘modesty,’ is ‘Puritanical.’ Who is anyone else to tell me that being Puritanical or modest, is wrong?

Mothers who insist on breastfeeding in public feel that they are ‘entitled’ to ‘convenience,’ and have no consideration for those around them who my feel uncomfortable.

You have every right to breastfeed your child. I have every right to not want to see it, even if it is “Puritanical,” because… Your rights end, where my rights begin.

And the US Military Uniform by no means should ever, ever be used to support any cause that is centered around entitlements and convenience.

Vanessa on June 4, 2012 at 10:13 am

1st time that I can say I do not agree with you DS.

CrazyPeas on June 15, 2012 at 7:09 am

Breastfeeding isn’t sexual, it isn’t pornography, and it certainly is not something to get worked up about. I bet that if this were a picture of two mothers bottle feeding their children none of you would have anything to say. Breastfeeding is the ORIGINAL function of the breast, it is why we women have them. If someone got off on this it is because they are a pedophile. Breastfeeding is natural.

Sparky on July 22, 2012 at 4:29 am

I don’t often use this word, but today I will- you’re a cunt. In every sense of the word. These women are not putting their bodies on display. They’re nursing their children. A legally protected RIGHT of all women in this country, regardless of their military status. They’re not posing topless. I think it speaks volumes about how awesome these women are for not only being mothers but also serving our country.

I also think it speaks volumes about your lack of character to shame women like this.

Catie on July 23, 2012 at 1:00 am

    Well said, catie. I am so flabbergasted by this woman’s hatred and ignorance that I am speechless.

    amanda on July 23, 2012 at 9:24 am

Clearly the writer of this horrendous blog has some type of delusional mental issues! I served in the United States Army for 4 years and breastfed through out my term! I was able to maintain my professionalism while on active duty and take care of not only our country but my family aswell! To state that a female should not serve while being a mother Is a bit ignorant! America “has sunk into a new low”?! Seriously?! All im gonna say is that this broad is probably mad cause she is an ugly cunt with no life and wants to go viral and become “famous” with her IQ dropping remarks about something she knows nothing about. She probably hasn’t even served in the military a day in her life. Seems like debbie needs to sort out some emotional issues along with some daddy issues too. Grow up chick!

Priscilla on July 23, 2012 at 1:56 am

Unbelievable and despicable (you, not these outstanding women in uniform).

Jessica on July 23, 2012 at 2:29 pm

As a former member of the military who breastfed, I can say that the author is completely out of line who she addresses breastfeeding while in the military and her views in general on breastfeeding and woman in military. That being said those woman were totally out of line. One of the first things we are taught is that it is against protocol to USE THE MILITARY UNIFORM TO FORWARD A PRIVATE CAUSE. That is the issue with the photo not the fact that they are breastfeeding. That is what the breast is meant for. This author, I wouldn’t even call her human, sickens me and I will NEVER read her articles ever again.

Jessica on July 23, 2012 at 7:27 pm

I’m not going to dignify this idiot’s article with a response. However, just want to add that Vanessa is a moron. I breastfeed my son on demand, whenev he is hungry. It could be every 2 hours, it could be every 45 minutes. I can’t pump for crap. There’s no way I’m going to make life more “convenient” for YOU by planning my life around when my son is going to eat. Guess what? I feed him in public, and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it. Don’t like it? Too bad, you don’t have to look. I’M protected by the law.

hahaha I haven’t read anything this ignorant on the web for quite some time. I assume the writer has some excessive sexual repression and is now suffering due to seeing partially exposed breasts.

I in no way can see how this can seriously debilitate their ability to work, further more when feeding a child seriously offends someone, we know that the offended has some other problem.(sexual repression issues?)

Breasts are simply skin, they exist for the soul reason of being able to nurse a child. Prohibiting a woman from feeding her child because it may offend someone is absurd in all logical forms, this is a case of an attempt to censor life. Which is boarder lining if not crossing one’s personal freedom to feed and be fed.

It is disgusting that their are people that actually feel this way. Get your head out of your own offended ass please

Debbie you’ve erred in your criticism on the photo’s being sexual, they wouldn’t be for most men aside from some with a fetish. There is no way to prevent all possible fetishes of any type being stimulated. So drop that one. Had the military used these photos for recruitment purposes, these photos would be just fine.The real issue is these women innapropriately used their uniform to promote their own private cause.Debbie you also have not kept up with how effectively some women can sustain their professional roles while sustaining breastfeeding effectively. Modern pumps are extremely effective in maintaining lactation and many babies do cope well with a few expressed milk bottle feeds as well as suckling while adjusting well with other good caregivers if brought up early that way.My daughter in law while not in the military, but working as an engineer handled this well and has the most happy well adjusted son who was weaned around 20 months. That’s despite the boy being born three months prem. Her husband and family provided excellent support with assisting in his care while she put the effirt into the lactation as well as relating to him. You need to catch up with the times and these realistic commited mothers who realise they need to keep their careers and end up doing both arena’s better than many stay at home mothers.

There is nothing wrong with nursing.

I’ve read your article about women in the Military. You sound ignorant. It makes me wonder if your kids are going to be ok when they grow up.

The woman with twins doesn’t really have much choice to show or hide her boobs, unless you have found a shirt that has a special flap to cover the middle part between her children’s heads.

Al Qaida thinking we are weaker than we are is a good thing. That way, when we destroy them, they won’t be expecting it.

An exhibitionist ho? She has more covered in that picture by FAR than any bathing suit she might put on.

Creepy weirdos are going to be creepy and weird no matter what.

We call it the Air Farce because the vast majority of Air Force personnel don’t work in/on/around planes.

Her name has no place in this conversation. Have you ever thought that her name was changed to MATCH his? That could be her married name and it was his family for reasons unknown that hyphenated his name. Or perhaps he might have been adopted and the hyphenated name is part his birth parent’s last name.

Not everyone is attention seeking like you are. You wouldn’t have a blog if you yourself weren’t ME-ME-ME.

I don’t have a problem with nursing or pumping in uniform, but I wouldn’t take a picture of it, I’ll give you that.

You keep bringing this back to a fetish. It makes me wonder if you have any real material for this childish post, or if you yourself have the fetish.

They didn’t respond to you because it wasn’t worth their time. They had real issues to deal with elsewhere.

From the tenor of this and ALL of your blog posts, it doesn’t sound as if you are pro-America. You do a lot of bashing for someone who uses the right to free speech that the very soldiers you are bashing help to uphold.

The reason the Military is so open to nursing is because breast milk is the most healthy option by far for an infant. If they didn’t allow their personnel to nurse, they would be trying to take away the most basic and healthy of all ways to nurture a child.

As a conclusion to this post, it has become blatantly apparent that you were not breastfed as an infant. That is the only explanation for your ignorance and the blurred lines you have surrounding your thoughts on what is right and wrong.

I thought women in the armed forces weren’t allowed to have breasts?
