Breastfeeding Mom 'Covers Up' With Lingerie Model & Shuts Down Hypocrites

Shamed breastfeeding mom fights back with amazing pic

At some point, people are going to get tired talking about breastfeeding and let those who make the choice to nurse their kid -- whether with a cover or otherwise -- do the darn thing. Sadly, we haven't arrived at our final destination just yet, as new mom Maria Corry's photo of her feeding her baby was reported on Facebook ... five times. Choosing not to stay silent, Maria's new breastfeeding photo spotlights a big double standard in an oh-so perfect way.

Maria is just a North Carolina wife and mother of two who doesn't see the big deal in sharing breastfeeding photos online. So after folks started reporting her pics, Maria thought of the perfect solution ...

Just cover baby girl with a lingerie model, because obviously, that form of "nudity" is okay.

So since my breastfeeding photo which showed NOTHING got reported more than FIVE times, I'm posting this. I bet this won...

"Breastfeeding is natural, it's what our breasts are meant for!"

Right on, mama!

More from The Stir: Breastfeeding in Public Terrifies Too Many New Moms

Whether you agree with it or not, you gotta give it to Maria; Mom does bring up a good point:

I bet this [photo of lingerie model] won't be reported, because you can see this picture in every mall you step into, huge and blown up outside the store. This is not frowned upon, or ever reported, as it is seen everywhere. But a woman nurturing and feeding their baby is looked down on. That is completely absurd!

As a mom who breastfeeds, I get it. I get that some people are uncomfortable when a woman "whips out" her boob to nurse her kid, especially in public. But, guess what? There are times when I get uncomfortable with things in plain view, too. Whether it be shorts that are just an inch from cooch hairs, cleavage that makes my baby jump at the thought of lunch, or some other fashionable choice that is worthy of a fashion police citation ... in the end, it's your right as a tax-paying citizen of this country to wear what you want.

It's also a mother's right (and a legally protected one at that) to breastfeed her child in public.

Maria is right -- there is a double standard. It's okay to showcase pics of women in bras and panties, but a woman breastfeeding? Oh, no!

Come on. We can do better.
