Have I read this right - is it illegal to breast feed in a public place in Queensland!?
In Queensland, breastfeeding is protected by law and discrimination on the basis of breastfeeding is illegal in all areas of public life.
Basically what this pool staff person did is illegal as they have discriminated against her by asking her to stop.
It is most certainly not, as the idiot staff member said, a 'grey area'
I would have refused to leave. What are the going to do, pluck the baby off you, or push you into the pool? I'd smile cheerfully and say "No thanks, I'm comfy right here. It is perfectly legal to breastfeed in public." Then turn away and ignore them.
Maybe if people started being more bold about it then these fools would think twice about trying such stupid tricks.
