Famous aging TV host, Wendy Williams has started a controversial topic saying that women don’t need to share pictures of them breastfeeding their children on social media.
Actress Alyssa Milano, has a different opinion.
On January 6’s ‘The Wendy Williams Show’, Milano, 43, found herself at odds with the show’s host, who insists that br**sts are ‘sacred’ to women.
“I don’t need to see that,” said Wendy, saying if it were her, she would go breastfeed her baby in the car.
Milano pressed Williams on the issue, asking why it was fine to show a picture of Miley Cyrus in a scantily clad outfit but not of a woman nursing.
“I don’t know why I feel this way,” Williams said. “Breastfeeding is only a particular amount of time. The rest of your life, your br**sts are s*xual things.”
“Biologically they [br**sts] are not made for s*xual things, that’s what we’ve done to them,” Milano, mother-of-two countered that br**sts were not s*xual objects.
Milano has been outspoken regarding breastfeeding, particularly the right to do so in public. (Forty-nine states in the U.S. have also passed laws specifically allowing it.)
“I think that breastfeeding moms feel like what they do needs to be hidden, or not feel like they’re getting the appreciation that comes along with being a breastfeeding mom, and it meant something that someone was being vocal. When I post pictures of me breastfeeding Bella, it’s not that I’m trying to be very outspoken about breastfeeding, it’s that it’s a very special moment in my life. What [other people] take from that is a whole other thing. Support from not only breastfeeding moms, but moms everywhere, has been really powerful and really overwhelming,” she previously told People magazine,
