He's Not a Big Fan of Breastfeeding in Public: Kasey Kahne, NASCAR Driver
Sometimes I run across something I feel the need to share. It's also nice to know that not everything in my world is controversial and related to the LGBT community at large.
I honestly don't know who Kasey Kahne is, but the guy probably doesn't come from a large extended family. Trust me on this.
I come from a long line of therapists and chiropractors. I've seen my mother breastfeed, my sister breastfeed, and even my nieces...one, I am certain, might just do it on facebook any day now. I've been quietly making bets with other family members.
So it doesn't bother me when I'm out in public and I see a woman breastfeeding. I got used to it a long time ago. Have at it...especially if it keeps the little darling child from screaming and ruining the rest of my day.
Obviously, that wasn't the case with Kasey Kahne while he was walking around a supermarket and saw a woman breastfeeding. He tweeted this:
Just walking through supermarket. See a mom breast feeding little kid. Took second look because I was obviously seeing things. I wasn't!
And then followed with this:
I don't feel like shopping anymore or eating
I don't know what to say to that. Clearly, this freaked him out. You can read more about it here if you are so inclined.
