Man gets publicly shamed by his own mother over breastfeeding row.
A woman took to social media to document the ironic way in which she was attacked over public breastfeeding.
Tanja Krstic Radusinovic, from Las Vegas was out at a public pool when she decided it was feeding time for her son.
After covering herself and her 9-month old son with a towel to protect herself from any criticism, one man still decided to give his opinion.
She was approached by a 40-something man who told her categorically ‘you shouldn’t be doing that here’, before his own mother waded in.
Tanja captured the exchange in a perfectly timed Facebook post.
She told Bored Panda:
“This was at one of the hotels/resorts in Las Vegas, NV,”
Despite being a natural part of the mother-baby process, a lot of people with some seriously backwards views are uncomfortable being reminded that breastfeeding happens everywhere, every day of the year.
Thanks to an increase in awareness over recent years, it is now becoming more and more commonplace for public places to accept breastfeeding as a normal occurrence. But some people – usually men – find it impossible to understand the process. They see breasts purely as a sexual thing, and cannot seem to understand that the actual reason for breasts is to feed children!
Tanja says that she was so shocked initially as she couldn’t get her head around why someone would be so shocked at the simple act of eating.
“It’s normal. I can’t believe that grown-up men – and women – would be offended by a baby eating.”
The man in question was challenged by his own patriarch who gave him a complete dressing down, and he ended up looking even more immature than the baby he was trying to stop from having his lunch.
Tanja really paints a picture of the amusing scenario where the grown man gets called out by his own mother, made even funnier by the way that she explains how much smaller and skinnier than her son she was.
This is proof that you’re never too old to get roasted by your parents!
After sharing her story on social media, Tanja was met with many funny replies from people showing their support. Some were mothers themselves, others were simply people who wanted to show their support.
