Boobs Are Bad But Penis Problems Are A-Okay?!

Boobs, breasts, ta-ta’s, we ALL have them. Yet some are seemingly terrified of their existence.

I’ll never understand how people can make such a fuss about a mother breastfeeding her child in public but it seems fine to have male actors sing about how they have trouble getting a hard on in a television commercial.

Viva Viagra!

I’ll let you in on a little secret, when it comes to breastfeeding, it’s just a boob. I know, shocker!

What makes me stabby is when some say Well, taking a crap is natural but I wouldn’t do that in public.

Ahhh, yes. Because taking a crap is so comparable to breastfeeding.

Viva Viagra!

I think sometimes we as parents forget our children’s innocence. They see things through such different eyes. I don’t think seeing an entertainer in a low-cut outfit or hearing a musician singing about sex will make your kids destined to a stripper pole. I’m not saying that I want my daughter to idolize some of these teen actors and singers but I want her to have a healthy body image.

I think how my daughter will react to these things will be because of the way my husband and I do.

I want her to be proud of her body, not ashamed.

Like a woman’s body, I want her to know that a man’s body isn’t offensive either. I just haven’t quite figured out how I’ll explain. She’s only 2 so I’m hoping I’ll have some time to think about it although I know she’s starting to get curious about her body so I better think fast.

What do you think? Does a woman’s body get a worse rap than a man’s? What do you think is appropriate to tell your children when it comes to our sexuality? If you have a son and daughter do you notice if you approach it differently with them?

    Viva Boobs!! And right on sister, I so agree with you. I have two boys but I know a lot of little girls who are being raised differently, I’d try not to if I had a daughter. A healthy, but also fun body image and attitude to things methinks. I also know a lot of women, young and old, who think that all they have to offer is their looks, body and breeding/mothering skills. It’s unbalanced and us Mum’s have the power to readdress it. By teaching our daughters to believe in themselves. May they be smart, strong, and beautiful. And (once they’re 18 and up) sexy too! Healthily so…

    Too right. i got so slap-dash about hiding any boobage when i was feeding. as you say they are just boobs.. and they’re everywhere and everyone’s seen them before and it’s so natural and beautiful and healthy to breastfeed. anyway, i try to make sure i talk about how great i look when i look in the mirror at myself, in front of the kids. so they hear me liking my body and feeling good about myself, rather than seeing me look in the mirror and hearing me say “ugh i feel fat, my bum looks big, those bags under my eyes make me look old and haggard, i hate my hair’ etc…. i want them to love their bodies, though some may think that it vain – it is better than hating and being negative about their bodies. my aim is to give them confidence and not arrogance!

    I don’t know… Boobs are in a league of their own compared to penises and vaginas. Nudity is only as perverse as the intentions for bearing the naked parts.

    But that’s where the problem lies. Everyone has their own interpretation of the intentions. It might be a lovely bond between mother and child to some, and it might be an invitation to a lactation party for others.

    I was once having dinner with my family and a friends family. And suddenly at the dinner table (at their home) she whipped out the boob and started breastfeeding.

    I felt uncomfortable, because I was caught off guard. Truth be told, I wanted to see what her boob looked like, but not in a sexual way. Still, I wondered if her husband would be angry if I took a peek. So I was overly careful about not looking her direction at all, and that made me feel uncomfortable as well. I like to look at people when I’m talking to them.

    I’ve gotten a grip on the situation since then.
