A flash of public boob was put on display and I found myself looking away in disgust rather than enjoying the sight. Savvy internet denizens already know what I’m talking about . . . The dreaded and controversial topic of breastfeeding in public.
I was in Overland Park when I noticed a 30-something mom whipping out a pale, floppy, horrible-looking teet and I couldn’t help but avert my gaze in disgust.
The scene was a turning point because normally a bit of public nudity from flabby grown women is right up my alley. But the display was simply an affront to all things right about public booby flashing. Make no mistake, this public flash was something that this particular exhibitionist woman wanted the entire shopping mall to witness. In front of what had to be at least a few thousand people she fed her greedy little rug rat in a manner that almost made me lose my Panda Express. Old ladies were whispering to each other, youngsters were giggling and most passersby were simply grossed out. Somebody related to this cow must have clued her in because after a brief whisper she quickly packed in her breasticle away and moved on . . .
But the damage was done.
And please don’t get me started about the circle of life or a woman’s right to be gross. This wasn’t about equality, it was something out of a carnival act. There are all kinds of justifications for this nonsense and they usually revolve around a woman’s sense of entitlement for behavior that would get a dude thrown in jail.
Sadly, for me this display simply made me aware that not all boobie flashing is a good thing and that was a truly sad occasion.
