Zhengzhou has begun rolling out semi-private ‘lactation rooms’ on its public bus system, because nipples are scary. The curtain-enclosed seats are designed to sidestep the whole issue of public breast feeding by simply eliminating the ‘public’ element entirely, and designating a nice walled-off space for new mothers.
This photo published in the Dahe Daily captures the ease and subtlety of these lactation chambers; nothing like a huge red label and various onlookers to make one feel at ease.
100 years ago, no one would have cared and mothers would just do it. Modern is funny and dumb at times and this is one of them.
