Wacky Reality Star Says Breastfeeding Is 'Incestual' & 'Gross' (VIDEO)

I think women should get to decide whether breastfeeding is right for them and not be judged by other women for their decision. I know a woman who couldn't produce enough milk for her child and needed to supplement it with formula, and yet my other friend, who is not a judgmental person on the whole, said she just "hadn't tried hard enough." Woah. Women really get crazy on this whole breastfeeding issue. So I have no problem with the fact that model and Miss USA runnerup Shanna Moakler, who used to have a realty show with her former husband Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, didn't breastfeed any of her three children. But her reason is the wackiest I've ever heard!

A TMZ videocamera guy stops Shanna in what appears to be a parking garage and asks her if she's ever heard of the "fact" that babies who are breastfed are more likely to be slim than those who weren't. (Leave it to these TMZ guys to come up with such celeb stoppers!)

"I've never heard of that," says Shanna, a mom of three. "I didn't breastfeed. I'm selfish."

Okaaaaay. So far she's sounding a tad drunk or off her rocker, but whatever. I think it's okay to want to not breastfeed for your own reasons. She should have had the sense to stop there, but does she look like she has sense to you? So she continues ...

"I just look at my breasts as like sexual ... and it's incestual and gross ... I don't like it. I couldn't do it." Err, what?!

Shanna sounds like she can't think of herself as anything OTHER than an object of sexual desire. Shanna, your babies wouldn't be sucking on your boobs for sexual purposes, ya weirdo. This is what happens when you spend your whole life on the beauty and modeling circuit. Shanna, babies just want food, not nookie. Comprende?

It's bad enough that men sexualize women's breasts and breastfeeding to the point where women still have to fight for the right to breastfeed in public, but women have to do it too?

What do you think about what Shanna says?

She is an idiot. She probably shouldn't talk...

I caught the MTV show once, and was not impressed by the way the dad had the toddler in the car seat, loose straps and all.  I didnt even have kids then, and knew that was wrong.

That's not that weird. A lot of women feel like that. Thats part of the reason I didn't.

Calling breastfeeding "gross" is what an immature 12 year old boy would say. "Gross"? How is something so natural and normal gross? She sounds like an idiot..

I don't think its gross but that's partly why I didn't breastfeed... it just didn't feel right to me... I didn't want to try the thought of doing it creeped me out... I don't think its wrong at all for women to breastfeed and kudos to all the women who feel comfortable doing so... but y'all shouldn't be so judgemental to us women who don't...

I have always been uncomfortable with breastfeeding, When I have my own child I will probably opt out of breastfeeding for two big reasons. I will have to go back on my seizure medications immediatly after birth and, I want my husband to be a part of feedings aka share the workload. On top of that I think that since it makes me that uncomfortable I would resent having to do it. Not an emotion you want to have toward your child.

Nursing your babies is both natural and beautiful, two things this woman clearly knows nothing about.

Lol.  Selfish and down right stupid.  Anyone who thinks this way did not spend nearly enough time in science class.  Every single other Mammal also breastfeeds, humans ALL breastfed until the last 60 years or so. 


How awful it must be to walk around in life like the sole purpose of your body is for the sexual pleasure of men.  And, not realize that not only can the female body create life, it can also sustain it.


Oh well.  You can't fix stupid.
