If you haven’t seen Miley Cyrus’ boobs in the last month, you must have been in hiding. But we bet you haven’t seen one woman breastfeeding despite the fact you’re probably all over social media.
That needs to change.
Alyssa Milano is a huge advocate for normalising breastfeeding. She posts photos of herself breastfeeding constantly and recently shared her anger over having her breast milk confiscated by security at Heathrow airport. (We wrote about it here.)
Now the mother-of-two has defended a woman’s working breasts again.
The 42-year-old spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how ridiculous it is that our society loves sexualised boobs, but that we are disgusted when a mum posts photos of her breasts doing what they are made for. Breastfeeding.
“I think people are more comfortable sexualising breasts, than relating them to what they were made for, which is feeding another human," she told the American TV Show.
Milano posts a lot of breastfeeding photos to her social media accounts, and feels like the response to those are much more negative than the response people give to 'sexy' boob shots.
