Breastfeeding in Uniform, Moms Disgrace the U.S. Military

posted by Donna Calvin

Watchwoman: This breastfeeding thing is totally out of hand and obnoxious!  Plus, here’s another reason women shouldn’t be in the same military as men! I don’t think it should stir controversy, I think they should be dismissed from the U.S. Military for Behavior Unbecoming to Military Personnel quietly and without any controversy!  I don’t think they’re good mothers, I regard them to be “skanks!” And here’s the Wiktionary meaning of SKANK – Any substance considered particularly foul, unhygienic or unpleasant.  Watching the skanks breastfeed their babies is foul and worse than unpleasant, plus, they’re being conscienceless about where they are breastfeeding and making sure the breast is hygienically cleansed before feeding their child.  Yuck!  Honestly, I firmly believe they are doing this not for the child’s pleasure, but their own 15 minutes of fame and to show off their breasts in public.  I believe that it is being done to promote nakedness and sinful behavior!  It’s just another way to promote the evilness of the far-left sinners who think that every thing is wholesome — from putting Christ in a bottle of urine to pictures of thousands of people naked being photographed in a park in Cleveland, Ohio, to sodomy, lesbianism, abortion, and fornication!  Our country has drifted so far from our First Love, Jesus Christ, that it can no longer distinguish decent from indecent, modesty from exhibitionism, motherly love from child exploitation, moral from immoral, healthy from sick derangement!  For God’s Sake (I mean that literally) WAKE UP AMERICA!!!  If this were you, the baby, how would you like to have this put on your Facebook page 12, 13, 14, 15 years from now?  Think it would help you secure the job you always wanted?  What would it mean to your boyfriend or girlfriend to see you sucking your mother’s breasts in public!  Think about it!!!  Do not be deceived my dear Christian readers, these two stories and two obscene photos coming out within a few days of each other is NOT by ACCIDENT!  The evildoers and promoters of sin have an agenda they are blindsiding the simple with!  The biblical meaning of “simple” is those who are biblically illiterate!  Didn’t know that?  Look up the word “simple” in a concordance for the King James Bible and you’ll see how it is used.   ▬ Donna Calvin

 

Military Moms Breastfeeding in Uniform Stir Controversy


At a time when breastfeeding in public is already controversial, pictures of two military moms doing so while wearing their uniforms is sparking outrage. – Photo: Brynja Sigurdardottir

The photo is part of a local breastfeeding awareness campaign by Mom2Mom of Fairchild Air Force Base, a support group launched in January by Crystal Scott, a military spouse and mother of three. Among the intimate close-ups of smiling young mothers cuddling their adorable babies, the images of the two airmen stand out.

“People are comparing breastfeeding in uniform to urinating and defecating in uniform. They’re comparing it to the woman who posed in “Playboy” in uniform [in 2007]” Scott told Yahoo! Shine in an interview. “We never expected it to be like this.”

“I’m an X-ray tech and I breastfeed in my uniform all the time,” Scott says. “Granted they’re scrubs. But people do it all the time in their uniforms. If you have a hungry baby, why would you take the time to change completely?”

Terran Echegoyen-McCabe, a member of the Air National Guard who was photographed in uniform nursing her 10-month-old twin daughters, says that she’s surprised by the reaction to the photos.

“I have breastfed in our lobby, in my car, in the park … and I pump, usually in the locker room,” she told the “Today” show, adding that she usually nurses her babies while on her lunch break during drill weekends. “I’m proud to be wearing a uniform while breast-feeding. I’m proud of the photo and I hope it encourages other women to know they can breastfeed whether they’re active duty, guard or civilian.”

All of the women in the photos volunteered to appear in the awareness campaign, and Echegoyen-McCabe is featured — wearing civilian clothing — in a few of the other candid shots. None of the photos are posed; the women are simply feeding their babies the way they usually do. But even though some of the other photographs are just as revealing, only the ones of Echegoyen-McCabe and her friend Christina Luna in uniform have been criticized.

“The Air Force has never endorsed these photos,” the photographer, Brynja Sigurdardottir points out on her website, where she posted several other photos from the Mom2Mom campaign. “These women just happen to be in the Air Force, in their uniform, breastfeeding their babies.”

When it comes to talking about breastfeeding in public, comparing it to other bodily functions — and even sex — is common, in spite of the fact that breastfeeding is legal and protected while defecating or having sex in public is not. But the fact that two of the moms are shown breastfeeding in public while wearing military uniforms makes the entire controversy more complicated. The Army, for example, didn’t even come up with a combat uniform for women until 2010, so accepting the idea of a uniformed soldier breastfeeding a baby may be especially jarring. And the uniforms themselves come with their own sets of rules.

According to Military Spouse Central, public displays of affection — even something as innocuous as holding hands — are not allowed while wearing a military uniform. Also forbidden while in uniform: eating, drinking, or talking on a cell phone while walking, carrying an umbrella that’s not black, and (in some cases) smoking or even chewing gum. While there is no policy that addresses breastfeeding in uniform, Air Force spokesperson Captain Rose Richeson told MSNBC: “Airmen should be mindful of their dress and appearance and present a professional image at all times while in uniform.” Military moms who are still breastfeeding are encouraged to pump and bottle-feed their babies while they’re in uniform.

Scott suggests that the issue might have less to do with the uniform and more to do with our own internal conflicts. “I think a lot of people think that you can’t be a mom and be a soldier,” she says. “This is not something that’s out of norm for them. They breastfeed in uniform all the time — it’s just not something that’s usually captured on film.”

I’m assuming you would be okay if this image was of two women feeding their babies a bottle of cow’s milk and corn syrup solids ..aka Formula… Wow…a good Christian would see that this is an image of God’s work..as basic as it gets…a woman feeding her infant the way nature and God intended.

    It’s not about cow’s milk, it’s about women’s nakedness in military uniform. We all have to evacuate, but we don’t pull down our pants in public and show off our naked private parts to the world, do we. You don’t have a clue about modesty or what a good Christian should do or think or how they should act. Please get a Bible and read it, starting with the Gospel of John and don’t stop re-reading it until you experience a huge transformation in your life! You will know when it happens. God intended you to be transformed into His Child, redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and saved from eternal damnation! You need to understand God (not me). Your eternal life depends upon it. Ann, your problem is with God and His Law Word, not me or two women and their babies. Here’s hoping that you get to know God and His Son Jesus Christ so you can be made wise. [Hosea 4:6] My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. — Ann, I am Christian and I truly care about your eternal soul and where you will spend eternity. To be saved, please read…”Inspirational. Do you know for sure?” – http://blog.beliefnet.com/watchwomanonthewall/?p=4928 —- It may be the best thing you’ll ever read! May the Holy Spirit, right now, beginning this moment surround you and begin to woo you into the family of God. I pray for you, Ann, in the powerful and saving name of Jesus Christ, the Redeemer! Amen.

    I am always provoked by the defense of one evil is to do something about another evil first. That makes no sense whatsoever! That is called misdirection and a well-known tool of how magicians deceive. The great deceiver is known as Satan. It is just another of his tools to take the focus off an evil being brought to light.

Ignorance Police

Wow, this site must truly be desperate for articles to publish something this ignorant. I love how the author feels that a breastfeeding mother is not only a skank, but is doing for fame and to show off their boobs. You obviously have never breastfed to know the sacrifice of pain, time, and freedom it takes to provide for your childs health. I for one would like to know what you think the purpose of breast are. To fill up your bra? Idiot.

    Ignorance Police,

    Well, I’m glad you’ve identified yourself. You certainly are ignorant. And you obviously think you’re the police with a private eye’s license to judge!

    I’m not desperate for articles. I’ve published 1,460 articles in the past year and every day I run out of time long before I run out of articles.

    You expose your own ignorance. And you’re not a very good policeman/woman — whatever — because you accuse me of not having breastfeed — and I did, likely long before you were even born! I did it before it was fashionable like joining a boob-exposure club!

    You call me an idiot? Maybe you think boobs are made to fill a bra, but what you need to know is that bras are made to support breasts.

    What you need are some Christ-filled brains to fill your head.

    King James Bible – [1 Corinthians 2:16] For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Proud Nursing Seabee

Did you really just call these breastfeeding women “skanks?” The only disgrace here is your presence in this country that these 2 have sacrificed themselves for you to live in freedom in.

You obviously have never breastfed, therefore, that makes you ignorant on the subject. Go educate yourself about it before you spout out.

    Proud Nursing Seabee,

    I did breastfeed, but not in public sporting my boobs to men who would look at it and salivate with lust in their hearts! You obviously have no understanding of the male gender.

    As far as loving the USA and the US Military, I have defended them and respected them.

    So because I called two exhibitionists “skanks” I have no right to citizenship? So you don’t believe in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution you have sworn to uphold?

    And BTW, I lost a relative in Iraq, a Marine, so don’t accuse me in your current state of ignorance.

    You can be proud, but not public, there’s a difference! The challenge is, “PROUD” NURSING SEABEE, is knowing the difference!

    TAKE NOTE “PROUD” NURSING SEABEE of what The God of all Mothers, Nursing Mothers, and all Women, has to say about being PROUD, PRIDEFUL AND HAUGTHEY in the Holy King James Bible

    [Proverbs 16:18] Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
    [Proverbs 8:13] The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
    [Proverbs 18:12] Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
    [Jeremiah 49:16] Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that holdest the height of the hill: though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the LORD.
    [Obadiah 1:3] The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?

    In your pride, NURSING SEABEE, you are causing men to sin if you expose your breasts publically. Read…

    [Proverbs 6:25] Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
    [Matthew 5:28] But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

    “PROUD” NURSING SEABEE, note! You will be judged by God at the White Throne Judgmment for your sin of making a male lust after you in his heart! Why do women work in strip bars? For the money they get thrown at them for exposing their breasts and bodies to hungry, lustful men. Now what is the difference between exposing your breasts in any public place from the stripper who does it for money. She gets paid and you don’t!
