(Interestingly, upon reading this article I came across a link to another journalistic treat from The Stir, entitled "Mom kicked out of pool for breastfeeding and she deserved it", which in turn contains a link to another article entitled "10 reasons I am dreading nursing my new baby". Hmm.)
So let's have a look at this top 5, shall we?
Number 1 - In the swimming pool
I admit, when I first heard the story of Stephanie Wilby and how she was ordered to get out of the pool to breastfeed her baby, I had some understanding of how other swimmers may have felt. Not about being exposed to breasts, but of the leaking of breast milk into the water. But then, after a post on my Facebook page from one of my followers (hm, that sounds a bit sinister, doesn't it?) I changed my opinion and ended up completely defending the woman on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff. After all, with all the babies and children - and even adults - who urinate in the pool, what harm does a little breast milk do? Babies find it much more difficult to keep warm than adults, so it is quite understandable when a mother does not wish to leave the warmth of the water to breastfeed her child. If nothing else it is a breach of her human rights to ask her to move, as the lifeguard did.
Number 2 - On a plane
Planes are full of perverts. Didn't you know that?
Number 3 - Kids' sporting events
Because children are also perverts, apparently.
Number 4 - Church
Uh... oops. Sorry God.

Number 4 - Restaurants
Oh, um... well, uh... this is awkward.
