Today's social dilemma came from Carolyn. I found it interesting because I think it's something that people have strong opinions on. Carolyn wrote about breastfeeding and an argument she got into with a friend of hers. Here's the email: Hi Jaime. I recently had a big disagreement with a friend of mine and thought it would make a good subject for your social dilemma. My friend Joanne and I were at a well known coffee shop catching up as friends do. The place was very busy. Across the way from us, there were another couple of women, one of whom had a little baby with her. At one point, the baby started fussing so she decided to feed him. She was breastfeeding and did that right at the table. My friend was appalled. She said the woman should go into the ladies room to do that. I didn't mind at all. First of all, it's none of my business, and secondly it's completely natural. No reason to get freaked out by it. But my friend Joanne said that while she knows it's legal, that doesn't mean that women need to be exposing themselves at the table in a very busy restaurant when there's a perfectly fine ladies room available. We went back and forth and since neither of us budged on our opinion, I thought I would ask you and your listeners what you thought. I'll be listening, and hopefully Joanne will too. Thanks so much Jaime. ~ Carolyn Well for me, I don't think breastfeeding is a big deal at all. It doesn't bother me, I'm not offended by it and I too, think it's just nature. But I do have some friends that feel like Joanne. So, no judgement zone, how do you feel about it. When you're out to eat and you see a woman breastfeeding at the next table, does it bother you or are you okay with it? Let me know what you think on the TRY Facebook page.
