    Avie Poll: Breastfeeding in Second Life: Should SL moms be able to breastfeed in Public? Something Taboo? -Becca Drascol Reporting ~ The SL Enquirer
    "Having just become an SL mom just two months ago, and with the RL controversy surrounding breastfeeding in public; I got to wondering.  Should SL moms be able to breastfeed in public if they so chose and if the venue were adult and family friendly? In our first lives it's more than controversial for a mom to feed her baby in public if that baby is breastfed. Even RL celebs have taken to posting and tweeting pics of themselves breastfeeding their newborns. And yet a lot of the public would rather they keep it private. When did something so very natural need to become something so very taboo?

    What is good about it?

    • Issue controversial in the old world.
    • Gets attention in the old world. 
    • Great SEO: 1,600,000 hits on Google Search.
    • Calls for opinion.  That gets attention even if it does not get responses.
    • Gives me a great closing line:
    People who think their teen-age offspring do not know about breasts and their uses, are farther away from reality than any virtual world ever will be.
