But excusing yourself and moving to a more private area IS reasonable. It is the raging mothers who expect the room to conform to her wishes that are unable to be reasonable. It is the bellyaching about dirty washrooms, refusing to wait a short amount of time, and lots of I AM WOMAN, HEAR ME WHINE thrown in for good measure.

Here's a question. If this should be viewed as a completely comfortable and acceptable thing to do in a crowded room, do you mind if people watch you with interest? I imagine you don't mind if someone eavesdrops, since its as public as a cell-phone conversation.

Oh, that's right! You demand politeness on the part of everyone else around you to pretend as if they didn't notice, yet the lot of you are unwilling to extend the courtesy in return by simply excusing yourself to a more private location.

This seems to be more about proving a point than feeding a child--that is quite clear from the reactions of some of you to Susan's wise choice to take this private moment to a private place.
