Breastfeeding attitude
Tuesday, October 5, 2010 - 12:29 pm

To me discriminating against a breastfeeding woman in any capacity doesn’t seem much different than discriminating because of race, sex or anything else. Besides, to ridicule a woman for feeding her child is just plain ignorant and really shows the mentality of people.

Hands off!
Tuesday, October 5, 2010 - 12:29 pm

This is to all you married or single men over 30 out there. Hands off! We women are not impressed or flattered by you putting your arms around us or touching us at all when you try to flirt and hang on us! The older you get, the grosser it is. Stop putting your arm around us, stop trying to show how cool and charming you are because you’re not. We women have more respect for a man who respects us enough to carry on a conversation with out the touching. It is even more un-cool when you are over 40 and 50. Grow up and show some respect!
