Because we so need more variety in images of breastfeeding.
UPDATE: Sorry about the troll on the loose in this forum. I’ve cleaned all but one of Jake’s comments up. I kept the counter-arguments people made in response to comments removed because there was some lovely stuff said in defence of mothers who breastfeed and there was such volume. These are my views on breastfeeding in public –
The feminist campaign to allow women the full freedom to breastfeed is about all of us. It is not really about the choices of individual mothers and their babies. It is about women being considered as important.. as fucking normal as men. We are all made stronger when a woman can breastfeed, in public, as a member of her community, while getting shit done. Because when that happens it says that women belong, it says that women’s bodies belong, it says that women are here.
Please trust that trolling won’t be tolerated on this blog and neither will any kind of bigotry including, but not limited to, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism and anti-mother or child-hatred comments. Sorry I wasn’t here to address the troll when he was about and that so many people new to the blog were left to deal with it – time zone differences etc.
