"[Breastfeeding mothers are] completely ignoring the rights of customers to come out and say 'I don't want to see that while I'm eating'"
Hughesy. If your wife had been bottle feeding your baby at the entrance to a cafe would you have asked her to move? Your discomfort with where she was breastfeeding stems from the same socially-learned offence to breastfeeding as the cafe owner who insulted Regan Matthews. It's not valid and that's why 29 years ago our federal legislators made it illegal in The Sex Discrimination Act.
