A Female Lawmaker Defends Public Breastfeeding. Her Male Colleague Threatens To Grab Nipples.

Thus reads the title of a Huffington Post article written by Laura Bassett yesterday.

The story goes, State Rep. Amanda Bouldin (D) wrote a post on Facebook opposing a currently proposed bill that would make it a misdemeanor for women to expose their nipples in public and told sponsor of the bill, State Rep. Josh Moore (R) he should either either protect breastfeeding mothers or scrap the bill entirely, not realizing it already held such a clause.

But rather than informing his colleague of her mistake, Moore chose to defend sexual assault and imply it would be the fault of the victim!
