Personally, I love seeing photos of women breastfeeding while going on about their lives, and I love seeing photos that subvert the ‘good nurturing mother’ mythology. But you can probably imagine the kinds of anti-breastfeeding comments this photo is generating. I like how so many people are saying they’re totally supportive of breastfeeding, totally on board, just do not do it in public. Right. Do your ‘female thing’ behind closed doors, but otherwise you’re completely welcome to participate as a full member of the community and enjoy public space like everyone else.
This is why breastfeeding is a feminist issue.
