Waitress Gives Mom Free Pizza For Breastfeeding

Fongs

According to KCCI 8 News in Des Moines, waitress Bodi Kinney is the woman behind the note on Johnson-Smith’s bill. “We need to come together and support each other when it comes to nursing our children,” Kinney told the news station in an interview.

Clearly, others agree. As of Thursday morning, the receipt had been shared over 2,000 times on Facebook. This comes on the heels of Hollie McNish’s incredible defense of breastfeeding in public that went mega-viral. Yes, folks, it looks like we might finally be getting used to this.

This is a very nice gesture from the server.

I fully agree with the subject, I have no problem with breast feeding in public. When I do not agree with something I see, I do the simple thing, and ignore it. Look away, change the channel, scroll on over the post onto the next one. With freedom of speech and freedom of expression, nothing irks me more then people that try to censer there surroundings judging only on what offends THEM.

Freedom is a 2 ways street, though many people seem to forget that.

Breast feeding does not really fall into free speech OR expression, but it is still the same in a sense. It is a harmless activity, but it could be considered “offensive” to some. So the message to those people is the same as my message to anyone who gets offended by my (or others) posts, actions or other media . . . . . . . . . . . LOOK AWAY!

Hate Speech Is Not Free Speech

I came across this (the title of this entry) today in my facebook travels, reaction to a decision by the Harper Government to repeal some hate hate speech from the Canadian Human rights act (you can read more HERE). Normally in times past, I would nod my head in agreement (maybe share the meme or enter my agreement). But with the Paula Deen story still fairly fresh in our minds, I seen it from a bit of a different way.

Free speech

You may recognize the graph, as it was taken out of the article I linked to above. Although the results may look different as time goes on, as it stands above, is how it was when I cast my vote on the subject. Yes.

Like I said when it comes to the Paula Deen incident, whether or not a person SHOULD say something is one thing, and is frankly subjective. But one should be able to say it. Which is why I find the above little graph interesting. Seemingly, the majority of the voters do not understand the concept of free speech.

It is understandable that some things are best left unsaid. But the fact is, its subjective. And if you start picking and choosing what can and can’t be said based on what offends people, there will eventually be no words left.

Freedom of speech does not mean that ones words give them immunity to criticism. If you feel the person’s views are warped, biased and racist (or anything of the sort), you can call them out on there bullshit (freedom of speech!).

But you should be willing to defend this person’s right to say those things that offend you so. Because with freedom of speech, you either have it, or you don’t. There is no middle ground.
