I think it's my time to response again.
Yes, kids don't have that much inhibitions that age but I meant that things happened in childhood can affect on you afterwards. Even yes, I admit a leash isn't perhaps the most traumatic one, even people experience things different way and I can imagine that it'd perhaps be if used incorrectly
About the argument of losing your human dignity during a birth: People do have different sense of morals ans dignity (don't know if these are the best words to describe what I mean but don't find anything better now) and I wouldn't automatically equate these ones. Like I said earlier, people experience things different way. Besides that being "not so clean" (if you catch birthing like that) at some moment doesn't need to decrease dignity of some other thing.

I wouldn't either see a leash embarrassing. It can be more about values. You don't need to feel the thing you're against is embarrassing, but more like... just something you just don't like about. I see it don't absolutely need to be something related to your age or a point of a life span... Like I said, people can also try to find other solutions or then change their opinion later (read my previous response).
Yes, seems most of people are for leashes at least over here.
Ugh... I think I've gone bit over now and sound more "enthusiastic" than I actually am
. This isn't the thing I feel I have to make a mountain out of a molehill, just wanted to give an opposite view for your new arguments.
