Alyssa Milano Vs. Kim Kardashian

Over the past week, two celebrity pictures have caught my attention. One picture was of actress Alyssa Milano, getting all dolled up for a photo shoot while breastfeeding her baby at the same time and the other was of Kim Kardashian bearing her butt for the world to see. 

According to society

Alyssa Milano posted her second breastfeeding photo on her Facebook page and received a ton of negative comments. Some said it should be kept private and isn't something the world needs to see. Kim Kardashian's butt picture and full frontal nude pictures have many breastfeeding moms in an outrage. I guess their thought is why do breastfeeding mothers receive such a negative response when they post a breastfeeding photo yet full on butt shots are okay and apparently even meets Facebook guidelines. I'm not about shaming other women for being comfortable enough in their own skin to flaunt what they have. By all means show it off sista! My upset is why is one more accepted than the other? Why do breastfeeding moms have to FIGHT for their right to breastfeed in public uncovered? Why are breastfeeding pictures being reported and removed off social media sites? 

"Wait! I don't get it," Milano Tweeted in response to the Paper pictorial. "No disrespect to Kim but... people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies & are fine with her (amazing) booty cover?"

So what do you think? Why do you think society is so quick to judge moms for posting their breastfeeding pictures, but see a picture of bare butt and it's celebrated? Is seeing a visual of our bodies being used for their original purpose so disgusting and wrong that it should be kept in private? It just makes no sense! I think the shaming on both sides need to stop!
