Doc Tries To Outlaw Public Breastfeeding Because Men Shouldn’t Be Exposed To Boobs ‘Against Their Will’

patrick-johnstonYet another idiot man is speaking out against breastfeeding this week, and his laundry list of why it’s offensive is so dumb you almost have to laugh. I said, almost. That there is this level of ignorance in the world is a little too troubling to actually be funny.

Dr. Patrick Johnston, the director of the anti-abortion group Personhood Ohio, wants to ban all nudity because he claims topless women who protested outside his church are an “offense to God.” No, they weren’t breastfeeding. Try to stick with me here while I attempt to insert logic where logic doesn’t live to explain this.

A handful of women from a local strip club marched outside of the New Beginnings Ministries church in Warsaw earlier this month. They had endured nine years of the church’s protests in front of their club, and got fed up with being regularly called “tramps” and “whores” by these people of God. So they decided to turn the tables on the church, and protest topless outside their Sunday services. Brilliant!

Johnston responded to the protests by asking Ohioans to call the legislature in support of banning “all public nudity in the state.” Not only would this get rid of the tiny protests that are happening outside the church, but it would have the bonus effect of not allowing women to breastfeed, since they have to expose their breasts briefly to do so. Oh, also – boobs promote gay pride, and he’s not having any of that. Johnson said he’s never seen more boobs in public than he did at the Gay Pride parade.

“I am sick that women can legally bare their breasts to children and to married men against their will in Ohio,” he wrote on his Facebook page following last week’s protest.

So, are you following? A boob ban equals no more “tramps” and “whores,” no more breastfeeding, and no more gay pride. Because, that makes total sense. He definitely wants to make sure all the babies are born, as his Facebook page boasts he’s pro-life “without exception,” he just doesn’t want them to be fed when they’re hungry, because – gross. Boobs.
