In a recent conversation with a friend the subject of childbirth and breastfeeding became the topic of discussion to where she shared that she chose not to breastfeed her children because of personal reasons. I was intrigued and questioned her decision to find out that her choice was based upon her comfort level of her children suckling on her breast, reminiscent of her husband’s actions when they are intimate. “How does what you and your husband do sexually have any effect on the sole purpose of why you were given breast”, I questioned. “I mean, your breast serve the purpose of providing nutrients to your child from the milk that it has worked to develop, it’s all for a reason. I mean, do you think with that same disgust when your children have to travel through the vagina that your husband just emptied his sexual desire into with his manhood? This is the result of sexual perversion”, I continued. “How”, she responded. Let’s define perversion, shall we.
The alteration of something from its original course, meaning, or state to a distortion or corruption of what was first intended.
Now, let’s add the word sexual before the word perversion and the definition then becomes, “the alteration of something from its original course, meaning, or state to a sexual distortion or sexual corruption of what was first intended.
I then proceeded to express my opinion on why I believe God only gave women breast for breastfeeding by referencing not one, but a few verses from the Bible (i.e. Isaiah 49:15, Luke 23:29, & Song of Solomon 8:1) that define the breast as a means for nurture, growth and maturity all relative to food, which is translated into milk unto a child. For a greater clarity of what state of sexual perversion this world is in I referred us both to Genesis Chapter 3:5-11, which outlines the dependency on my argument that if Eve had not ushered us all into the world of sin as offered to her by the serpent we would all still be unaware of the sin around us including the nakedness of ourselves and the sexual desires and lust that nakedness provokes allowing thoughts of sexuality to things and areas of the body that were not intended for such activities.
In short, my only argument and belief is that breast were never intended to be viewed as sexual objects or sexual attraction objects, but that of source of nurture for the child[ren] that women were and are blessed to bare. Further exploration and understanding into Genesis Chapter 3 versus 5-11 as well as other Bible references that include breasts will support my belief; that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
