It is forbidden to drink or eat in the Taipei MRT not even drinking water, chewing a chewing gum or sucking a lollipop. What is contradictory is that in the Taipei MRT, you have probably seen there are breastfeeding rooms for mothers with babies. But, not for long. Indeed, the MRT Company just lost in court and will have to remove all the breastfeeding rooms by the end of the year 2015. A group of determined people won the trial against the transport company. They were complaining because they felt babies had advantages compared to them.
Peanuts Daily met Mr. Duncan Fu, the attorney of the winning side:
My clients are very pleased by this decision. This was unacceptable to have breastfeeding rooms while no one is allowed to drink or eat in the MRT. My clients did not understand why babies would have such advantages. They did not ask to remove the breastfeeding rooms at first, they asked for adult feeding rooms. Seeing that there was no way the MRT includes those feeding rooms, we had to fight against breastfeeding. The verdict is fair and justice is made now. So, you can suck it up babies!
That was a wise decision taken by the authorities.
