    I've been open and am astounded by what I've learned on here about nudity and sexualization of the body. I believe, now, that if the breasts weren't sexualized like they are in America, that maybe, a child seeing a nursing mom or even the breasts exposed, is not a bad thing.

    But growing up in the American culture and even being taught (very little) as a Christian, there are some parts that are sacred to only the husband and a newborn. And because it's sexualized so much among Christians and amongst those in Hollywood, I believe there could be some negative effects that could follow as a consequence to exposing a young child, teenager, or even an adult male that struggles with the eyes.

    Perhaps you could first answer my question, then I will answer your question. Exactly how are children harmed by seeing a mother breastfeeding her child?

    This ignores the fact that breasts were just as sexualized in Europe at one time, perhaps more so than in America. Visit a beach in France or Italy or Greece or other European countries and you will see that is no longer the case.
