A NEW mum asked her friend to wear a bra when visiting her baby as he tended to grab on to nipples but was accused of being a "misogynist".
The woman explained that she wanted to protect her friend from harm as she had an intimate piercing so it could be very painful.
But the friend was offended by the suggestion and said she was "sexualising her breasts".
Taking to Reddit the mum said: "I have a six-month-old, and just started allowing visitors.
"My best friend came to visit and I texted her suggesting she wear a bra or a thick shirt if she plans to hold my son because he grabs nipples, very hard and my friend has hers pierced and has told me they’re super sensitive.
"I explained this to her and she ignored my messages but she came over anyway , nipples poking through shirt and my 6 month old was staring hands ready.

"I was so confused and she left abruptly. She keeps telling our mutual friends that I was sexualising her breasts and was trying to make her wear a bra or that I wouldn’t welcome her but that isn’t at all what happened."
The upset mum added: "In the midst of our arguing she suggested that I should teach my son to not grab nipples but he is just a baby."
Fellow Redditors were quick to jump in with their opinions.
One person said: "You explained why you’re suggesting that so it should be clear it has nothing to do with sex, and she’s the only one sexualising the situation. She sounds like a drama queen."
