This is what I am talking about ....

Caprica I hope you feel like the man putting someone down about their literacy skills but I guess thats ok for you to do

It's b**ches like you that remind me why I deleted EB as a bookmark in the first place must be time to do that again I guess it is hard for you to comprehend that people can empathise with both sides

I can't believe people still ask this question.

See that's the thing. I DONT understand why there's anything to empathise with when it comes to feeding your baby.

Yeah Yeah, I'm a b**ch. Yet I'm one of the ones who leave the disabled loos for those with an ACTUAL disability.

I just don't understand why the disabled person can't wait. If it was an able bodied person and the loos were full we would have to 'hold on'.

I think that if a disabled person can't have some empathy for a breastfeeding mum, then it says something about their 'personality'. It is a world gone crazy with entitlements for everyone. A bit of old fashioned courtesy and commonsense of both sides would go further.


Dumb Ass.

I'm genuinely offended at this comment.  That someone is honestly too selfish or too selfish to try to imagine why perhaps a disabled person can't wait.

Besides a digestive person, have you considered how long it actually can take a disabled person to even make it to the toilet?

Having helped my mother through a humiliating situation when she was unable to get to the toilets, I honestly feel sickened by your comment.

(Waltzing - this is not directed at you.  I have large breasts (G Cup) and understand your recitence with feeding in public. But I couldn't let the comment I quoted go).

Holy sh*t. Being in possession of a shopping trolley IS NOT A DISABILITY.

What on earth is wrong with people??!?

You are all a bit loopy if you think this still about the OP. It's not. She did the wrong thing and she knows it. But some of the attitudes in this thread just defy belief. The sense of entitlement, coupled with the ignorance while all the while DEMANDING we show empathy because she's a mother? Really just incredible.

If you think being a mother of two children puts you on the same level as a person with a disability - you need professional help.

This.

Plus everything Sarita said.

Oh, and OP, I'm going to need a visual on a set of (.)(.) that can't fit in a normal cubicle.

Don't jest - I got a b**chy note left on my windscreen a few weeks ago.  A foot from my disability parking permit.  It still astounds me.

Or perhaps spend a day in a wheelchair, go shopping and need to go to the toilet.

I can't believe I stayed up half the night and came back after work to finish reading this post. I know I really shouldn't keep this thread going but after all this I have learnt:
1 - Thank God I don't have huge boobs. I never realised how hard it must be for those who do to BF.
2 - Sarita & others thank you for opening my eyes to how hard life must be for those with disabilities and those who care for them.
3 - EB is more entertaining than day time soaps.  laugh.gif

This is a joke right?

QUOTE
rather guiltily snuck out, checking the coast was clear in case I was accosted by a very p*ssed-off legitimately disabled person dying to use the toilet.

WDYT? Is it really selfish to use the only disabled loo for the rather long time it takes to feed my baby?


Derr YES! An incontinent person and their carer might have needed that space to change their continence pants. A person using a wheelchair could have p*ssed themselves in public due to not being able to make it to another toilet. How would you like sitting in your own soiled clothes for as long as it takes you to get home, including perhaps using public transport, or a taxi, or having to get into your car in pi$$-soaked clothes?? My DH is at risk of life-threatening complications from an overfull bladder. Would you rather we had to call an ambulance when he had a stroke just so that you can BF your baby without the whole world being exposed to your large breasts? I'm sorry, but most people have other things to do than bother gawking at someone BFing no matter how impressive their rack!

Not to mention the fact that I can think of more hygienic places to occupy your 3yo sick.gif while giving bubs a BF...

And I am amazed at the number of early responders (didn't read the whole thread) who thought what you were doing was absolutely justified.

Steph!  You're sounding like you don't have any empathy!  It is v important to have empathy or otherwise people just see you as a nasty unempathetic cow who just doesn't understand how hard it is to bf a baby.

#347 not-surprised

Posted 11 February 2010 - 08:36 PM

waves.gif Hey which bit of EB is Team Nasty Cow hiding out on because I think I need to head over there. laughing2.gif

Seriously the thought of sitting on a toilet to BF makes me want to vomit. Not to mention those disgusting air spray thingies would be going off at regular intervals sick.gif sick.gif

Yeah the bfing in a toilet, especially a disability toilet being seen as a reasonable choice has really shocked me.  I know what happens in those toilets and there is no way I would consider them to be sanitary.
