I've seen reports of one major occurrence to the contrary - last year? a woman was demonstrating her endowments from her balcony to some partygoers, and the police wedged in and arrested her for it. This angered the crowd and was the cause of the infamous Hallowe'en Riot.
Ducatista: I'm sorry if my phrasing seemed unromantic, but in legalistic terms everything
is unromantic. In the cold light of ?reason, tears are just a bodily secretion for lubricating the eye, semen is just an energy source for the male gamete, and blood is just a simple oxygen carrier that certain exceptionally stupid corporate scientists continue to persist in trying to replace with lumps of cross-linked garbage hemoglobin in order to save a few bucks (but I'm getting off track again...)
Am I exploiting breast-feeding as a point for gratuitous breast-admiration? Yes and no. Yes, I'm exploiting it --- but on the other hand, the social perception that breast-feeding is something that shouldn't be done here or there or under this and that circumstance and which in any case is some filthy thing that we shouldn't make special allowances for ... is the cause of a great many bottle babies. So I prefer to think of it as recognizing a natural symbiosis between two different issues for one common purpose.
