All the single guys have the luxury of sitting in the front anyways, and have no clue that it is going on.
I'm done with this thread.
Only one post decided to actually... y'know, deal with an argument. Thank you to that one poster. Everyone else... whatever.
No, you just wouldn't read and consider what anyone wrote because you're so sure you're right and everyone else is wrong.
Breast milk is food
. Urine is a waste product.
How many times must we tell you that?
Of all the secretions of the human body, only breast milk smells good, tastes good, and is nutritious.
And you are old enough to control your bladder and empty it in a proper place -- a urinal or toilet.
Not everyone has control over their bladder and/or bowels, though.
Next time you go to Mass, instead of worrying about whether some good Catholic mother is breastfeeding in church, worry about how many babies and incontinent adults or children may be sitting there with urine and/or feces in their diapers. You can't tell by looking at someone whether they're wearing diapers for the incontinent as the diapers fit quite nicely.
Of course, some incontinent adults and children who use wheelchairs may instead have a catheter with urine collecting in a bag hung on the back of the wheelchair and discreetly covered with a cloth so people can't see the clear bag with urine in it.
Some incontinent people who can walk have a catheter running down their leg, held in place with tape, and emptying into a bag taped to their lower leg -- a woman who wears pants to Mass might be covering one of those for the sake of modesty.
Then there are people who've had colostomies, who may be any age, and their feces empty into a plastic bag attached to their stoma (opening surgically created in their abdomen at the same time part of their colon was removed, due to injury, cancer, Crohn's disease, etc.) So they're walking around all the time with feces in a bag outside their body, unless they've just changed the bag and no feces have gone into it yet.
Don't forget the women who are menstruating, which is all the girls and women who are past puberty, not pregnant, and haven't reached menopause or had a hysterectomy. There will always be a number of menstruating women in any group of men and women.
You're around menstruating women all the time.
After childbirth, women normally have a bloody discharge called lochia for weeks, while the inside of the uterus is healing, and women don't stay home until it stops. Many go back to Mass before the lochia stops, even though they're not required to attend Mass that soon after giving birth.
Only women bleed, but men sweat and some of them sweat a lot and smell bad.
Better not go to Mass at all, there are human beings there!
