So, the Seattle City Council voted Monday to make it totally freakin' illegal to ask a breastfeeding mother in public to cover up or move. This makes sense, especially since breastfeeding has been protected as a civil right in Washington since 2009. We're pretty sure Blossom agrees. By definition, it's hard to argue that people shouldn't be able to engage in something that's their civil right. It's actually a little silly that the City Council had to weigh in at all.
But it did, and now we have a new law of the land. Lactating mothers are free - for real now - to suckle little Johnny and Sally anywhere. We'll call it progress.
Of course, while we're fully supportive of breastfeeding moms and their right to feed their children the way nature intended, what we're not so sure about is Blossom's right to breastfeed her three-and-a-half-year-old kid on the New York subway.
Given Seattle's new breastfeeding mandate, what say you? Should someone have asked Blossom to cover up? Maybe move to a more secluded section of the subway? Or can Blossom breastfeed that three-and-a-half-year-old anywhere she damn well pleases?
Note: We're not asking because we question breastfeeding. We support breastfeeding. We're asking because this is Blossom we're talking about here.
