If you’re one of the gullible and naive members of the public who believes mothers breastfeed in public because their babies are hungry, this video is about to change your life.
For too long, we have been lied to about the real reasons why many mamas choose to breastfeed their babies in public.
We are always told they do it because their babies are hungry or want comfort.
And so many of us have accepted this as truth, no longer wanting to question the rights of these women to feed their babies in cafes, restaurants and on buses across the world.
Thankfully, Australian musicians Sparrow Folk are finally shedding some light on this matter, and what they have to say (sing) is pretty groundbreaking.
It turns out that mothers choose to breastfeed their babies in public not because the babies need it, but because the mamas are exhibitionists.
In as hope to educate the public and disprove the widely held view that breastfeeding mothers are simply doing what comes naturally, Sparrow Folk have recorded a music video.
The video, which features an array of exhibitionists brazenly feeding their babies, hopes to tell the truth about public breastfeeding. Set in a cafe, we see a number of appalled, uncomfortable and shocked customers as women around them start shamelessly breastfeeding their babies.
The lyrics tell us:
“Must be this new ego, comes when your assets grow.
Now I want to share them around with everybody.
When I’m out getting a bite to eat, or meeting people on the street,
I’m always thinking to myself ‘Would you like to see them?’
They’ve never been this big before,
Come on, what you waiting for?”
The lead singer herself doesn’t even bother to feed a baby, instead simply stripping down to flaunt her assets to the cafe’s customers. The breastfeeding mothers appear to be preoccupied with their babies, or even reading newspapers, but the lyrics make it clear that they are deliberately and provocatively breastfeeding as a way of showing off their breasts.
The song also addresses the well-known but little-discussed fact that breasts are scary. Unlike the mainstream media, Sparrow Folk aren’t afraid to tell the truth, and compare the sight of breasts to monsters under the bed, spiders and a sharknado.
If you’ve ever had your day ruined by the sight of a mother unabashedly breastfeeding her baby in the hope of flashing you a bit of nipple, this song is for you.
Warning: It’s very catchy and you will almost certainly be singing it for the rest of the day.
