Ladies, I have had my constitutional right to nurse in public and private places VOLATED!
Today I was tandem nursing my 4 year old twins in the middle of an aisle at my local Home Hardware. I was minding my own business and keeping myself moderately covered but this one employee kept walking by and staring at me.
I was sitting crisscross apple sauce in the middle of the paint aisle when my little Patchier Rose told me she was hot. My twins are not used to being nursed while I am wearing clothes so I removed my top for their comfort!
About that time, the nosey clerk came back as started yelling something about indecent exposure! I started yelling back. “My twins should not have to suffer because I can’t nurse them!”
“But Miss, you’re naked!” He yelled back.
Why was it a problem that I had removed my top to nurse my kids-- And that top happened to actually be a dress? Have these people never seen a woman in her underwear standing in the middle on the paint aisle with two preschoolers suckling at her before!!
I was asked to leave and then escorted to the front door. When I heard sirens and decided to flee!
I am calling all nursing mothers to boycott Home Hardware and to hold massive nurse-ins all over the country! With your help sisters, we will show Home Hardware that they have no rights as private owners of property! We shall nurse where we see fit!
