Show And Tell

Events in the Middle East are unfolding too fast to post anything accurate about the situation here. Instead, I have chosen to bring up a case of New Age professors...

American University Professor Breast Feeds Sick Baby In Class, Sparking Debate

To whip it out, or not whip it out in class ... that is just one of the questions raised by this case. Oy, where to start? It's not a pretty sight.

Well, Cube, you seem to be joining the war on women. ;-0

What next?

DaBlade said...

Good one Jan! So what's up with that Cube?

Breastfeeding does not bother me personally. I breastfed all but one of my children. However, it is a big issue to some people who are made uncomfortable by it. I was aware of the feelings of others and made a point of not breastfeeding around anyone who would rather not see that. Its a matter of being polite.

In a public school class, it is not appropriate.

I can see where it would be a distraction in a college classroom... both the breast and the cute baby factors.

Its not okay to take a sick child out to a public place where the child can expose others to its illness and where it is not being properly cared for as well. A sick child belongs at home.

All public schools have "family sick days" for when your child is ill. Most employers expect you to have an emergency child care plan arranged ahead of time.

I cannot tell you how many times I got to class to find a "No Class Today" sign on the door with instructions on when the next class would be. Explanations were never given. We happily took that time off.

I can't believe she was foolish enough to think that this would not cause an uproar. I think it is more likely that she wanted to make a stand on the issue of public breastfeeding and push some buttons. Nothing the college said in that article was anti- woman.

What if one of the students had a compromised immune system? It could have had serious consequences for someone.

Uh, excuse me....don't we have other things that need our attention? Let the woman breast feed. Let all the women breast feed. Let women go shirtless just for the heck of it. Who gives a rat's ass? I love freeing up the girls.

Breastfeeding doesn't bother me. In front of a class though?( Although, I was never allowed to take my kids to work; I had to express my milk. Why should this be any different?)

The biggest thing here is taking a feverish child with her. The kid should be at home; she should've called off to take care of the baby.

We can see where her priorities lie!

Jan & DaBlade: But those were the talking points I received from my bitter white male conservative overlords... Being a woman, I couldn't possibly come to these conclusions on my own.

cube said...

Silly Rabbit: You're so right. I don't have a problem with breastfeeding either as long as it's done discreetly. To me, a professor in front of a class is calling attention to herself. Especially when you take into account her militancy when the school didn't give her their blessing for her actions.

The other problem is the sick child. The poor thing has a fever and it's crawling around on the dirty classroom floor, getting a paper clip in it's mouth, and coming dangerously close to an electric outlet.

A single mother should have a better contingency plan for her child's care when she has to work, especially one with a good job with benefits that many women would wish to have themselves.









cube said...

Granny Annie: I know where you're coming from... there are many other things that need our attention. From my point of view, this seems like one of those "progressive" actions that push the envelope of societal mores. If we don't stand up and complain, it goes unchallenged until the next "progressive" action comes along.

cube said...

Brooke: Exactly. There are many working moms that take care of these situations on a daily basis without such an upheaval.

From her actions, I think this professor would dearly love to make a federal case out of this.
