  1. or is referring to breastfeeding (your own) child as 'giving titty' just completely crude, disgusting and foul??
    I am genuinely appalled!

    Urgh - I'm with you there! Where did you hear that phrase?
  5. Thank goodness it isn't just me, I was literally like - urggh!
    Someone used it on Facebook [​IMG]
  6. Revolting expression!

    I wondered if that was what it should have been. Still disgusting.

    Yes breastfeeding is a perfectly natural bodily function; but so is defecating. There is absolutely no need to witter on about either on FB, and particularly no need to descend into such grimly twawful* language.

    *twawful - an instant neologism denoting twee awfulness

    Sounds like a **** thing! All wrong for something as essential, tender etc as breastfeeding is.
    Reminds me of the phrase 'giving head'.
  13. I feel indifferent to the phrase, actually. :-/
    Doesn't offend me at all.
    Did she write it in textspeak? That I can get on my high horse about.
  14. I don't like that at all.

    Just idle curiosity you understand, but do Headteachers use a capital H for that expression?

    I have never known a headteacher give anything - they all seem to take

    [​IMG] Lol to both of you
  18. Seems odd to talk about it on FB, whatever the phrase used

    As for the particular phrase ... perhaps said in jest/ironically in conversation but not as a status on a public forum

    Very odd

    It's better than titty bot bot (!) I kid you not! But it's not revolting - people have all sorts of names for it, personally I quite like 'getting the **** out for the lads' ;)
