‘Family values’ conservative: If women can breastfeed in public, I can grab their breasts

In a recent Facebook post, New Hampshire state representative Josh Moore said that if a law to ban topless female nudity fails, men should be able to squeeze exposed nipples in public.

In a recent Facebook post, New Hampshire state representative Josh Moore said that if a law to ban topless female nudity fails, men should be able to squeeze exposed nipples in public.

Moore was responding to a post by a Democrat colleague who opposes the bill, when the two got into a squabble, prompting Moore to make the comments.

Currently in New Hampshire, it is legal for both men and women to expose their nipples in public, but a state bill would make it a misdemeanor for women to expose their nipples, even for breastfeeding. The bill is backed solely by Republican men.

State representative Amanda Bouldin went to Facebook to voice her issues with the bill and its Republican support. Bouldin found irony int the fact that Republicans claim to believe in freedom and small government, but are now attempting to ban the female breast.

Representative Moore chimed in on Bouldin’s brief post with a typo-riddled comment, presented below unaltered:

Who doesn’t support a mothers right to feed? Don’t give me the liberal talking points Amanda. If it’s a woman’s natural inclination to pull her nipple out in public and you support that, than you should have no problem with a mans inclnantion to stare at it and grab it. After all, it’s ALL relative and natural, right?

Although Moore deleted the comment shortly after it was posted, many Facebook users grabbed a screenshot.

Unfortunately, more Republicans harassed Bouldin on Facebook, even sinking to throwing personal insults. Another Republican, state representative Al Baldasaro, made an unprovoked insult about Bouldin’s body. Again, the grammar is atrocious:

Baldasaro and Moore both went on to comment again on Bouldin’s post, fearing that the state would turn into a “topless bar” and corrupt the minds of children. However, exposing the female nipple is currently legal in New Hampshire and there are no reports of the state descending into chaos.

Bouldin did not comment on her colleague’s strange comments or personal attacks, but stayed focused on the bill at hand when speaking to Slate. Bouldin said that she believes that the demonization of the female nipple is pure sexism, as the male nipple is equally sexual.

“We shouldn’t be introducing new legislation that only applies to women,” she said. “If we had any laws that started with the sentence ‘women should not,’ they should have been repealed by now.”

    I may not live in New Hampshire, but as a woman…I think that a law stating that women can’t breastfeed in public is ludicrous. Why not have men out there who oppose the nourishment of a child, look at young children and tell them they have to starve. Sorry, but I’m sure that there are some of these MORONS who might have been breastfed by their own mothers. For every man that thinks it is perfectly alright to grab a woman’s breast if it is out of their shirt……THAT IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT….feeding a child is not so that you can grope the women. How would you feel if a woman walked up to you in public and grabbed your privates?

    Conservative Constitutionalist here — if men get sexually aroused by watching a aby or toddler eat, there is something very perverted about those men. They need to be locked up before they hurt someone.

    If he can grab my breast, then I can punch him in the nuts. That fair?

    Go ahead and act like a dick in public, Josh. Then the woman you’ve insulted can grab yours. Right?

    This kind of uneducated and archaic thinking is exactly what will make this conservative-leaning independent want to vote Democrat in the next legislative election. I’m embarrassed that this person is representing New Hampshire.

    Ladies and gentlemen. I breast fed my baby in public simply by covering a baby blanket over my shoulder and latching my son. He was quiet and no one ever noticed except once in a restaurant the manager was kind enough to ask if the temperature was too cold for the child. I said no. He is just sleeping. However, for the mothers who wish to expose themselves, it should be allowed in public as long as you don’t impose on other peoples comfort level. Just be courteous. OH…God Bless the breast fed children. Remember, God gave us the ability to do that:)

      This is the same thing that my husband and I say all the time. So many of these women now nursing think that people are offended by it and don’t care. That is not always the case most of the time it is the comfort level and I wish that they would respect that. I like you, nursed under a blanket and now they have those really cute and convenient wraps but they won’t use them. The reason is, if you don’t cover your face to eat then why should they cover the babies face to eat.

      I agree, i nursed all three of mine, and “nobody saw nuttin”so I feel some women who feel that they have to take their shirt off to breastfeed, have a secondary agenda,

    I think he was just saying that not all “natural inclinations” should be exercised, and providing an example of this.

    Josh Moore, God made woman to feed her babies. The world has made the female breast into a sex object. Josh, you need help.

    Well, he is just a special kind of stupid isn’t he? So, breastfeeding women is seen as something sexual? That is his first problem. He is another conservative idiot that views women as just sexual objects here for his personal gratification. Then, he believes molesting and sexually assaulting a woman is a “family value”? So, I guess that means if he has a right to put his hands on a woman breastfeeding her baby, she has a constitutional right to either put his balls in a vice grip, or pull out her gun and shoot him, right? Can’t have it all one sided now can we?

    As a resident of New Hampshire my reaction is: I know there are a great deal more pressing issues that need to be tackled in our state…if this is how you are spending the valuable time you are in office then you won’t be getting my vote.

    I am not necessarily against or in favor of public breast feeding that is personal option, but that is the stupider thing I ever hear someone say. Just because a woman is breastfeeding or even a person nude in public doesn’t give anyone the right to touch any more than a person showing their naked face, arms, fingers or toes doesn’t give any one the right to touch it. Now if someone stares at them they should not be offended by it either.

    Then it’s cool if I grab your nuts and squeeze till you pass out?

    It’s natural, after all.

    We should get flip up/down pasties and just wear them around. That way we wont offend anyone with our evil nipples, and easy access for breastfeeding. BOOM. Problem solved.

    By the same logic, if this idiot is allowed to express a stupid opinion in my presence, then I am allowed to smack him over the head with a 2×4. #youcantfixstupid

    I’d knock his teeth out if he grabbed my breasts! Who does he think he is? Breasts were made just for that- feeding our young! They weren’t made for toys for men, what an ignorant ass!
