ok i accept, i think they should not because

1. it could ruin kids innocents.
2. it would just give tons of men uhm, you know what
3. thats just weird, imagine seeing a women breastfeeding in public
4. they can wait until they get home

i am By NO MEANS against breastfeeding, i think women should do it actually later than most women do
Debate Round No. 1

On the idea that it could ruin kids" innocence:

Well it won"t for exactly that reason- the kids are innocent. If someone considers seeing someone"s breasts (in a non-sexual context) to be inappropriate in some way, then their innocence has already been ruined. No one"s innocence will be ruined, because they will either be oblivious to it or their innocence has already been ruined.

On the idea that it will give men sexual pleasure:

We allow all kinds of things in public that give men sexual pleasure- everything from beer to cars to music is advertised to men using scantily-clad women with large breasts, and this is done in public. Society has no problem with presenting material which has the potential to sexually arouse not in public. In any case, all of this is consensual- if someone is breastfeeding in public and someone else is watching them, the latter party is apparently okay with seeing breasts in public- they are choosing to watch them. If they did not want to see breasts, they can look away.

Point 3 wasn"t really coherent enough to offer a rebuttal. What"s so weird about it?

On waiting until they get home:

Someone may be working full time or have some other commitment to honour and so this is not an option for them. Also, babies are known to scream like hell if they don"t get what they want- telling it to wait isn"t going to work, and it will become distresssed in the meantime and will make a lot of noise, which is a bigger problem for everyone present than the possibility of seeing a breast.

My points:
1) It is possible to breastfeed on public without the risk of a breast being seen- many parents choose to cover up with a scarf or blanket.
2) Even if a breast were to be seen, it"s really not a big deal- breasts are seen all the time in adverts, and will only sexually arouse those who wish to be sexually aroused by them.
3) Babies cannot be asked to wait- they will scream and cause more problems than the potential to see a breast would cause.
4) Banning public breastfeeding may push some parents to bottle-feed, which is widely considered to be worse for the baby.

well, if they cover up, FINE. But you saying we see women's breasts all over is a bad argument, you don't see their nipples, so its different. i just think it isnt appropriate, thaking a dump, and taking a piss is essential for our survival, and if there is no bathroom nearby why cant we just pee in a bottle, we can cover up?

Con

"Well if the cover up, fine" out to be a concession- if one is breastfeeding in public while covering up, this would be incompatible with a motion to ban public breastfeeding. Con has indicated circumstances in which public breastfeeding should not be banned (i.e. if they cover up) and therefore conceded. I need not comment further.

I mean, I am pro breastfeeding but am definitely against girls just going around without clothes on. I mean there is a pretty fine line between those two. One is because the baby is hungry dangit. Let a mom breastfeed her kid. Telling the baby to wait until it gets home for that isn't right. Now if girls were just going around flaunting their breast that is just them over sexualizing themselves. The whole "free the nipple" movement is stupid and practically would force every teenage boy to look at every girl around lustfully. I mean its like a highlight on a piece of paper. You just cannot not notice a naked person. It physically isnt possible. Especially for someone going through puberty. It just wouldn't work out.

According to the Canadian charter of rights and freedoms, a women can expose her chest any where a man can, and it works great for getting the burka wearing Muslims out of the hot tub.

So women should withhold food from their baby cause men might creepily be staring at the woman's breasts and get a boner? Yeah, great argument there.

arganger you claimed they arent sexual, yes they are by human nature.
Men ARE by nature attracted to that, it is a sign of fertility

"ruin kids innocence"
Yes, because watching other children feed off of their mothers' breasts could ruin their innocence, even though they did the exact same thing with their mothers.

And if whatever men you know get off on a woman feeding her baby, you need to find new friends.

So, if a baby is screaming for food in public, it should wait to eat?

Why are breasts even considered sexual? They have nothing to do with sex only eating.
