    If we can see breasts as the wonderful means God created to feed and comfort babies, then the obsessions about them can disappear; men don't have to think that breast appearance somehow counts the most, and women don't have to obsessively worry about the size and shape of their breasts.What about women who do not want to or cannot have children? How should they view their breasts?

    Very few men think "breast appearance counts the most" so not sure what you're talking about.

    It's a western view that has historically sexualised breasts, though only in recent decades has that come against the norms of breastfeeding (even in the Victorian era, women breastfed in public without challenge). It's not something that can be changed overnight and it's so deep within our society I'd go so far as to say it might not be something that can be changed at all.

    That's pretty much a myth, normally perpetuated by insecure straight women as far as I can tell by anecdotal evidence.
