Candice Swanepoel has something to say about the act of breastfeeding.
And about the general concept of breasts in general.
A Victoria’s Secret model, Swanepoel has walked on runways around the globe.
She has also posed topless for a number of campaigns and magazines.
And not once has Swanepoel received criticism for this scantily-clad spreads.
If anything, fans have clamored for more, praising Swanepoel’s body and asking for her to show off as much cleavage as possible.
But attach a small child to one of her boobs and Swanepoel hears a very different response.
She’s noticed it ever since becoming a new mother to a baby boy named Anacã, who she welcomed into the world this October with fiance Hermann Nicoli.
And now Swanepoel has something to say about this very clear double standard; about the fact that she can make a living taking her shirt off…
… and yet also somehow offend folks by taking her shirt off.
“Many women today are shamed for breastfeeding in public, or even kicked out of public places for feeding their children,” the model wrote as a caption to the following image.
As you’re about to see, it depicts her providing an important meal to her son.
“I have been made to feel the need to cover up and somewhat shy to feed my baby in public places but strangely feel nothing for the topless editorials I’ve done in the name of art…” she continued.
Swanepoel included the hashtag “mothernature” with her justifable rant and concluded as follows:
“The world has been desensitized to the sexualization of the breast and to violence on tv…why should it be different when it comes to breastfeeding? -Breastfeeding is not sexual it’s natural-
“Those who feel it is wrong to feed your child in public need to get educated on the benefits breastfeeding has on mother and child and intern on society as a whole.”
Swanepoel is the latest in a long line of female celebrities to extol the virtues of breastfeeding and also lash out at critics of the healthy act.
Must these women actually apologize or feel embarrassed about giving sustenance to their baby?
Come on, society. We’re better than this, aren’t we?
Hopefully, going forward, more people such as THIS TARGET EMPLOYEE, will speak out any time they see someone being shamed for feeling her child.
And as stars around the world try their hardest to normalize the act, we’ll be right there with them, sharing photos and singing their praises.
Good for these women!
Good for all women who make the health of their baby a priority over everything else!
But not you, Wendy Williams. After THIS DEBACLE OF AN ARGUMENT, not you at all. Not ever.
