Apparently later she did a follow up tweet saying: "My sister breastfeeds! It's a natural beautiful thing, there's nothing wrong w it, but she covers herself, not w her boobs exposed." Thank you for the lesson in modesty, dear Kim. I will be sure to cover myself whenever nursing in public from now on.
First of all the irony of the statement is obvious- she posed for Playboy! How could she be so prudish about a little bit of boob exposed in the act of nursing! It was funny. And also very very sad.
I find it disturbing how vicious women can be to one another. When I had an article published in the Toronto Star on the subject of the censorship of my art from Facebook http://www.thestar.com/living/article/794323--are-these-obscene?bn=1 some of the nastiest attacks in the reader comments were from other women; the worst being the following statement: "As a mother of 2, trust me, others are not interested in seeing your bloated breasts from pregnancy. And another newsflash, they ain't gonna last!"
It's also unfortunate for the many many young women who follow her tweets. The breastfeeding statistics for young women are depressing already- something like 20% -30% of young women choose to breastfeed. Imagine how many more might be affected by this post: "EWWW! ...breastfeeding!" and choose not to give their babies the best start to life. The diservice this statement has made to the breastfeeding advocacy movement is staggering.
