Public breasts

Was at In-N-Out today and saw Earth Mama standing in line, ordering her hamburger and fries-- with babe suckling at her breast, uncovered. Everyone around her stood in silence: in equal parts of shock, fascination and horror.

Why is it we don't bat an eyelash when we see a woman half-naked, yet when we witness her breastfeeding in public, we go bonkers?
