In the last 24 hours, I’ve received Facebook invitations to *more than 40* nurse-in events all taking place simultaneously tomorrow at Target stores across the country. What did Target do to gain the wrath of the mama-sphere, you ask?
Recently a mama was nursing her babe in a local Houston area Target. When she was asked to move to a private location, she refused, and was harassed and humiliated by three separate employees. She then called Target’s corporate customer service number and was told by a representative, and then her supervisor that they were aware of the laws, but …that just because something is lawful doesn’t mean its acceptable in their store.
Let’s show them just how many mamas they’ve offended. We have a right to shop and meet our babies’ needs while doing so. Public humiliation for doing so will not be tolerated.
These lactivists have called for an international nurse-in event today at Target stores around the globe. So if you’re near a Target, grab your babe and head on over for a snack. And if you’re not lactating, grab a doll and pretend.
