Breastfeeding in Public

After I read the article on the woman who was removed from a store in the local mall for breastfeeding, I was appalled and a little scared. Could I too go out in public and have an employee ask me to leave for breastfeeding? Or have a stranger look at me in disgust. It's a little scary. All I am doing from my point of view is feeding my baby. It is completly normal to me. Yet I found myself at Super Walmart this weekend with a crying baby and I knew the only thing that would soothe him was nursing. So I found a bench which was between the food section and the clothes section and fed him as discretly as I could. I never noticed any dirty looks and no one bothered me at all. So why is it that people get so offended anyway? What could be dirty about a little baby getting the best nourishment they can get? I mean can you really look at a woman and think that it is sexual that she has a baby at her breast? What is it pedophilia? I just don't get it. I mean if you are a woman and make the choice to not breastfeed, thats one thing. But to judge another woman and think there is something wrong with them? I personally have not encountered many people who had anything bad to say about breastfeeding, but after all the stoires I hear I have to wonder.
