Oh, I'm sorry I thought we lived in the 21st century

I'm sure by now you've seen the picture of Miranda Kerr and her little bub Flynn... no?

I think it's a  posed photo, (after all she's a model and can't be seen without makeup or ratty hair) 
but beautiful and natural none the less.

I was just checking out the picture and comments on SMH in regards to the picture Miranda Kerr released.

I am so shocked that things like:
Have some decorum, cover up.

What an exhibitionist! Is it really necessary for the general public to see this photo

THAT is GROSS. why do we have to be subjected to a picture of someone breast feeding!!!! On the opening page of the SMH website that is not what I need to be seeing! YUK.

are being said in the year 2011. (I'm sure there were more stupid things said, I couldn't read anymore)

Is anyone else sick of the stigma attached to breast feeding and breast feeding in public?
While I know that BF is hard and difficult and not for everyone I feel like we're still living in the dark ages when I read comments like this.

Breasts are for babies, not play things for males.

It's ridiculous, isn't it?

People raise their eyebrows at breastfeeding yet it's totally ok for the likes of Ke$ha and Pussycat Dolls to stroll about in next to nothing.

Aargh!

Oh me, me! It's just appalling the attitude some people have. Surely it's their problem if they want to attach sex and smut to it?!

I think it's an absolutely gorgeous photo and I'm very biased about how wonderful her son's name is ;)
