Free The Nipple! It shouldn’t be illegal for women to  breastfeed their babies in public, in fact it should be promoted. Breastfeeding is not only good for the baby but  the mother too. It can even reduce baby’s risk of disease later in life. Also Breastfeeding reduces the mom’s risk of ovarian and breast cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis.  The longer she breastfeeds, the higher the benefit.  In fact, a woman who breastfeeds for 8 years has nearly a 0% risk of breast cancer. Now why should something that prevents breast cancer be illegal?  Breastfeeding saves a family approximately $2 to 4 thousand dollars annually. In comparison to having to buy formula.

Free The Nipple! Okay so the main point that #FREETHENIPPLE is trying to get across is that we were all created equally, so why can a guy show his breast but a woman can not? That does not sound very equal to me. Why should a guy be able to walk abound with his shirt off but we cant? Is there something wrong with us? Last time I checked there wasn’t.

Women should be able to feel good about themselves and proud of what they have, they shouldn’t be ashamed because our country has shunned the woman’s’ breast. And why? Because it’s not their opinion of modesty,class or decency? Why is it okay for a man to run around shirtless or with his pants sagging?  It’s not about us wanting to run free and naked but it’s about the equality part of this.
