I am with you on this one.

It is NOT Emily Gillete who has the problem, it is the rest of the world who finds a natural way to feed a child that is the problem. When a woman breastfeeds the nipple is about the only thing that you cannot see. I have seen PLENTY of photos of women who were NOT brestfeeding and they were showing far more than any breastfeeding mother shows and not a word had been said. But now, because a woman chooses to feed her child the way it was intended and not cover up, they want to kick her off a flight.
BTW, I breastfed my two younger children and one of those times I happen to be in WalMart without a blanket. I did have a jacket. I took my baby into the women's room to start her. She was too young to have removed the clothing from her face and I kept watch on her while she enjoyed her meal. NO ONE SAID A WORD. Once finished, I politely pulled my little one away and went about my business. There is nothing more natural than breastfeeding and therefore it should not offend anyone.
"Oh, sir, you eating manners are horrible and you are offending me. Please cover yourself with this blanket so I do not have to watch you eat."
