Things got awkward during Alyssa Milano’s visit to “Wendy Williams” this week when the topic turned to breastfeeding in public.

It all started when Williams noted that the actress stirred up controversy over breastfeeding photos she posted on Instagram.

 

“I was surprised by the reaction and I was surprised that I then was then put in this position of being a breastfeeding advocate — which I love, and I take that job with a lot of responsibility,” Milano, a mom of two, explained. “But it was kind of shocking that [people] were so opinionated about something that’s supposed to be so incredibly natural.”

Williams then expressed her opinion.

“I don’t need to see that — I just don’t want to,” Williams said. “I would go to the car [to breastfeed], not on the bench in the front of the big-box store.”

Milano countered that society has since sexualized breasts, citing widespread photos of Miley Cyrus sporting suspenders over her bosom from last year’s Video Music Awards as an example.

“So for you, maybe you’ve sexualized breasts, where [Cyrus’ outfit from last year’s VMAs] is OK,” Milano pressed Williams.

Williams, 51, agreed, also admitting that she wasn’t sure where her stance had come from.

“Yes, they’re more sexual than a feeding thing,” Williams continued. “I don’t know why I feel this way. I just feel like … I’m a mom also, breastfeeding is only a particular amount of time. The rest of the life your breasts are sexual things.”

    Wendy is ignorant. How dows she think babies were fed before the advent of “baby bottles”, homogenized milk and formula? What did baby Jesus drink? Titty milk! Feeding babies is their primary purpose!

  2. Every since I first saw a porn movie when i was in my teens, that showed a penis being squeezed between two bazooms (as Steve Urkel called them), the idea that they looked anything like baby bottles pretty much flew right out the window. A lot of things done with the human body is “natural”. But that doesn’t mean people want to see them done in public. I very seldom listen to anything Sasquatch says, but I have to agree with it on this subject.

  3. This discussion will never reach consensus. If a breast fed child is hungry in public, what’s a mom to do? She’s going to feed her baby. I do think certain moderations should be considered BECAUSE so many people have also sexualized breasts. I do think social media fuels a lot of the dissenting opinions and people feel like they most choose a side or take a stand to fuel their need to be heard.

    On one hand, I breastfed and at times in public places. However, I always felt the need to go to a “quieter” place like a bench/chair off to the side. I didn’t do it in bathrooms and only in the car if I was on the road or before I went into a store to shop (that was convenient for us both). I always covered us both up and never “whipped” my girls out in front of an audience.
    We live in the “I can do whatever the hell I want” era and we don’t consider how others may feel about what we do. We live in a society where showing your bare breast in public is “taboo” if you will. I hate the phrase it is what it is, but that’s exactly what it is. It’s natural and considered the healthiest nutrition for a baby, but why does that have to be made so public? That doesn’t mean you should hide the fact that you are breastfeeding, but what’s the harm in covering/shielding you and your baby from gawkers? It’s not about offending others, it’s about showing some decorum and class. And also not about “yall can kiss my azz, I’m going to do what I want.” ijs
