Why are people so offended when they see a woman breastfeeding her baby in public? It’s so natural and beautiful that it so doesn’t deserve the negative criticism from some folks. In fact, if anything, it should make you go aww, cause it’s adorable, albeit a private moment.
Well, when a video popped up back in June of 2016 showing a mom breastfeeding, some people on social media were freaking out, but not for the reasons you might have thought. It wasn’t the exposed boob in public that got people talking, but rather what they saw as the camera panned closer to the mother’s lower extremities.
So there’s this mom who breastfeeding her baby in public? So what, right?
In itself, this is between the mom and her baby. Why is everyone else all up in their Kool-Aid when they don’t even know the flavor?
Well, it turns out that it wasn’t the “Kool-Aid” that was freaking netters out.
In fact, most passersby weren’t alarmed by the fact that the woman was spotted in broad daylight breastfeeding her kid so casually.
What people couldn’t believe was what their eyes were showing them when they looked at the woman’s legs.
It might not have been as noticeable from a distance, but this poor woman was in some serious distress… as in, how in the hell was she still conscious and able to breastfeed.
The unidentified woman from Brazil was involved in a motorcycle accident.
Her bike had been crushed beneath a car, and so was one of her legs. She was so badly injured and her son so terrified, that breastfeeding him may have been the only way to keep him calm.
