Thank you Alyssa Milano for calling out the double standard in American culture over breasts.
In a recent tweet addressing Kim Kardashian‘s nude cover photos for Paper magazine, Milano tweeted,
“Wait! I don’t get it. No disrespect to Kim but… people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies & are fine with her (amazing) booty cover? “

Yes girl. This is A-merica!
In October, many took to social media and the blogs to express their disappointment, disdain or disapproval for the Mistresses alum’s decision to share a selfie of herself while breastfeeding.
It also reminded me of all the shaming a college graduate got for nursing her hungry baby right after getting her diploma, then sharing a pic a friend snapped of her on a breastfeeding support Facebook page.
The image created a lot of controversy by those wishing she would cover up.
Interestingly enough, it is probably fair to assume that those who were decrying breastfeeding moms in public are the same ones who probably wouldn’t think nothing of Rihanna wearing a sheer dress that same month which revealed much of her bare breasts.
