    Why is this a controversial issue? Why do people have a problem with breastfeeding? It's a natural act that is beneficial for children. My wife tried hard to breast feed, but her milk never came in. If it did and somebody dared say something negative about it in front of me i would invite their nose to my fist of fury party.

    The soldier on the left has nice sweater puppies.

    As for breastfeeding, my wife did it wife both my kids 'til they were about 10-11 months. I say do it if you can. As for in public, why not breast feed your kid. I see no problem with it.

    People do realize that is what nature intended breasts for, correct?

    As much fun as they are to play with, they are meant for feeding babies.

    We are so fucking fucked as a society.

    I'll never understand why breastfeeding causes such a damn stir in this country.

    Do people honestly believe it's more normal for humans to drink milk that is intended to feed baby cows???

    P.S. Soldier #1 is indeed sporting some lovely chesticles...

    I think most bemoan the lack of modesty that used to permeate society, that's all. I doubt few are actually against actual breastfeeding.

    Oh it's demeaning to the uniform. But it's okay to go kill people in the uniform though. That's honorable. Not raising a child. Dishonorable.

    Aside from the inevitable 'boob-admiration' comments, I have to say (and I really do not wish to come across as being sexist or condescending to the blokes on here in any way, shape or form), I am genuinely and sincerely impressed by the sentiments being expressed on here by you guys. Nothing aggravates me more than hearing people scorn women for using their breasts as nature intended - and in public, if they so wish. Speaking personally, I don't believe it is in any way 'immodest' to feed your baby with what amounts to nothing more than skin-covered milk ducts. Society is at fault for sexualising the breast to the point where women feel ashamed for doing what is, in fact, entirely natural. As for the issue that they are wearing military uniform - well, it's simply a 'non' issue in my mind, completely and entirely irrelevant.

    Very well said, Dib. I'd also like to add that the boobs on the left are big enough to feed an army.

    I respectfully disagree with that thought. These women aren't strippers swinging their tits around in public for fun. They're mothers feeding their kids.

    technically, they're mothers posing for the camera with a "look at me, I'm breastfeeding my kids" pose.

    I have to pee every once in awhile - it's a natural bodily function. Still, I'm not about to do it out in public and I'm not about to let anybody photograph it. But that's just me, I guess...

    Well, to be fair, these women aren't peeing in public either...In my eyes, there's a world of difference between having a piss and breastfeeding your child...But that's just me, I guess.

    I think this is disgusting. These pictures show what is wrong in today’s society where all the good stuff is saved for the “children”. What about the solders protecting our way of life? Shouldn’t they get to partake in such a satisfying meal? I remember if I brought gum to class I had to share it with everyone. If they are not sharing with their entire unit then they shouldn’t be in uniform. I know I would be offended if I didn’t get my turn.

    Ya, plus one is protected by law, the other isn't. Most people have enough common sense to go to an actual bathroom for "bodily functions". Anyone with a kid knows when their baby is hungry, you feed them then, not find a shady spot so some but bag isn't "offended". People "offended" by seeing someone breast feed obviously has a perfect life and nothing at all to worry about.

    As for the picture, anything that would inspire more women to breast feed in my opinion is a good thing. That even goes for the time cover, while I don't agree that 2-3 year olds need to be breast feeding, that's her right and not my place to question her parenting. I sure as hell don't want people judging me or my wife and what we do.

    Yup - and there is also the simple difference that the bits of our bodies responsible for urination are also, fundamentally and biologically, our sexual organs. Breasts, despite what society suggests, are not. Their basic function is to provide nutrition for our offspring, not to titillate. (And, yes the God-awful pun was deliberate!)
