The battle to normalize breastfeeding continues in 2016! Less than a week into the New Year, it's clear that we've got a long way to go in defending a woman's right to nurse her child in public — particularly on daytime television (ahem, Whoopi).
On The Wendy Williams show earlier this week, actress Alyssa Milano – a pro-breastfeeding advocate – came to verbal blows (starting at the 3:45 mark) with the talk show host after sharing some of her breastfeeding photos on Instagram.
"I don't need to see that," remarked Williams, who is known for speaking her mind about hot-button issues. The statement clearly shocked Milano, who was quick to point out the contradiction of being disturbed by nursing but completely comfortable with a "picture of Miley Cyrus with two suspenders over her breasts."
Even Milano's attempts at explaining the biological purpose of breasts were lost on the daytime personality: "They're more sexual than a feeding thing," Williams said. "I'm a mom also, but breastfeeding is only a particular amount of time. The rest of your life, your breasts are sexual things . . . They're fun bags!"
Watch the segment above and try not to squirm at just how ridiculous it is that this is still a conversation that is happening, nevermind among women.
