If you’ve been on Facebook in the past few days, you may have seen this picture of Karlesha Thurman breastfeeding her daughter during her college graduation from California State University Long Beach.

Thurman, 25, posed for a picture while she was breastfeeding her daughter in her cap and gown. She shared it with the Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Black-Women-Do-Breastfeed/109639955730943" rel="nofollow - Black Women Do Breastfeed  and they posted the picture with the following caption: “Congratulations mama!!! Giving her daughter more gifts than one! Isn’t this beautiful?!” And the hate started streaming in from there. While comments on the initial Facebook page were supportive and encouraging, once the photo went viral, the opinions ran the gamut from ignorant to hateful.

I think people share a little too much on facebook . I never go on the site . I disagree with the person talking about her study habits . Many young mother's never graduate .

If a random classmate popped her titty out in the middle of the ceremony just cuz she wanted to, would that make it appropriate? No, it obviously wouldn't be.

eta: I was right the first time Confused it's late, time for me to go to bed lol

Just because there's a baby attached to it doesn't make it more appropriate. Understandable? Yes but not appropriate. She could have easily thrown a towel over her shoulder. Damn, is it that hard to carry a towel with you when you know you're breastfeeding?

I would've pumped ahead of time. Breastfeeding is an amazing thing but that moment was inappropriate. She should've been prepared

What part of the ceremony is this?  

looks like extremely poor planning.  Why not pump beforehand?  Looks like a baby big enough for a bottle.  Who was feeding her while she was in class?  Im team feed where ever whenever but something like this should be avoided.  Not enough to get in my feelings about.
There was a recent story about a hs yearbook section dedicated to the teen parents...that was inappropriate.

And I do not understand people being up in arms about seeing a boob.

Folks walk around with their boobs on display ALL day everyday. The same people talking about its inappropriate show more boob at work and church and funerals and picking up their kids from school.

LOL at being up in arms.

If one y'all popped out a boob during my wedding. Y'all would be politely asked to go out to the breast feeding area. I love seeing my boobs, and a few others but are going too far. Farting is natural, and so is belching. So is defecating. So is eating when hungry. But please try eating a subway sammaich during a job interview let me know how that turns out. She just wants attention. I'm all for breast feeding in public places but during ceremonies NAHHhhhh.

Part of her ABC interview .
 
I personally have gotten nothing but positive feedback, but the people on Twitter are being very harsh towards the photo,” she told ABC News.

“I do not care how natural breast feeding is, a college graduation is not the place…decorum, people,” tweeted @theSilentGiant.

“I never said not to be proud, but breast pumps exist for a reason! Middle of graduation is not the time to whip breast out,” read a post from @SarahKitty21

Thurman said she didn’t post the photo  to get attention,  and it’s since been deleted. But she said she doesn’t understand what the big deal is about the photo.

“Nobody there had a problem with it,” Thurman told ABC News about her breastfeeding during her May 22 graduation ceremony.  “I was facing the other graduates. The crowd couldn’t see me.”

Her daughter, Aaliyah, was hungry and needed to be fed, she said.

Molly Peterson, manager of Healthcare for Lansinoh, told ABC News that breastfeeding in public shouldn’t be a concern.

“This was a beautiful natural expression of a mother’s love for her baby,”  Peterson said.

“Seeing pictures like this is something that normalizes it so that more mothers are able to feed their babies whenever, and wherever, they need to,” Peterson added.

The Facebook group where Thurman posted her photo uses the hashtag #normalizebreastfeeding in their posts to spread awareness. The group, according to their blog, was created as a means to “highlight the many black mothers in the United States (and beyond) who do indeed breastfeed their children.”

For Thurman, having her daughter by her side at graduation was important since Aaliyah helped her get to that day.

After finding out she was pregnant in her last year of school, Thurman contemplated dropping out or taking a break, she said. However, once she had her daughter, she said she knew she had to finish.

“With me having a better education, I would be more likely to provide her with the things she wants and needs in life,” Thurman said.

If you notice though, she posted the pic to a breastfeeding facebook page as a comment. Not her own page, not instagram, not anywhere else.

So this was definitely not a grab for attention in general. It was posted to the appropriate place.

And frankly, a black woman wanting attention for feeding her child nutritious food while getting her education...we should pay attention to that. And support it.

Like I said *black girls are magic* *feed your baby* *get that degree girl* *pop a titty out whenever you want, I got your back* *I bet that baby was quiet for the rest of the graduation once she had that milk unlike all these other folks hungry kids*.

I prefer she feed the baby than not because I don't want to hear her baby's hungry cries throughout the ceremony. 
Anyway, I ain't trying to see her titties and it may have been too hot to cover up with a blanket.

I witness numerous men that are not comfortable with a wife or girlfriend feeding in front of other men . I used a cloth diaper during my few attempts . I respect her desire to graduate and take care of the baby. I read nothing about the father .

Farting and belching does not equal breastfeeding in public.  Inhaling microscopic particles of feces is way worse than feeding a hungry baby.  I was weirded out seeing an woman breastfeeding her baby when I was hoping on the trolley thing at Disney World.  But ironically I wouldn't have noticed it until she was staring at me extra hard at me when I saw the empty seat beside her.  I guess she was expecting me to make a scene. *shrugs*

Well.

We've said that there's no prom for mothers, they need to mind their babies and she's minding her baby

A blanket would've been more discreet and if she'd used one, she'd probably get hand claps all around, deservedly

Didn't say it equated breast feeding. I just said it was natural. I really don't feel strongly about this I'm pro healthy baby so..... Like said I'm not mad.

LOL I don't like many people kissing in public, I don't like plenty of things. But will I tear this girl apart for breastfeeding. NO it's just not that serious. She did this for attention pure and simple. Who cares really though? People do plenty for attention.

It's not that serious...
and for everyone saying pump and use a bottle, it's not that simple. Some babies don't take bottles, some mothers don't express milk through pumping, etc, etc.

Let her feed her baby. She's not hurting anyone except those who have over-sexualized breast and aren't mature enough to accept that they're tools for nourishment.

I would love to see some posters eat in a dirty a** bathroom or under a hot blanket

so i guess she's screwed if she had to go pee then right? i guess she'd have to pop a squat right there on the lawn huh? cuz the time is when her bladder says its time, right?

And ftr, i hope the women in here who say that tatas should be viewed in a non sexual manner stay consistent. If your 17 y.o daughter wants to lay out in the pool sans bikini top you dont get defensive or your children come across a tv program in which breasts are on full display (Rated R movie, rated MA tv show) that yall dont rush to change the channel or cover their eyes, ijs...

lol but you tried it I'll give you thatLOL


im sorry, when does mother's milk come into contact with the air in the bathroom? not comparable to an adult eating a sandwich in the bathroom where the food is directly exposed to air. but YOU tried it though.

Don't come in here making sense!!

I'll say one thing, if the next chick wants to breast feed her baby in a filthy public bathroom, that's THEIR decision!! But I DARE someone to come with some body fluid nonsense when I whip the DD's out and feed junior. I'll promptly ask them how many boxes of diapers they're buying this month.
None? Oh, ok. Move along

Not sure why she is doing that there. That's like changing a babie's diaper at that time. You'd normally excuse yourself at that type of function.

And why is she taking a pic and then posting it on the internet?

This has nothing to do with age. Cheers to her for breastfeeding.

I think it is weird at a graduation. My sisters brought their pumps with them. If she didn't pump enough and the baby was hungry, that was poor planning and I doubt that is the case. 

Feeding a baby while the ceremony is doing the most, whether you are lazy as fck and using bottled formula, or you are a proper breast feeder.

Like I said, I would feel the same way if she brought a wipes and a diaper and changed them in her seat. The dad/fam should have been holding the baby and taking care of that.

maybe she's breastfeeding exclusively...I know some mothers who don't give their child a bottle at all even for breast milk

if I have kids, pumping would def be an option just for the sake of convenience and so other people (dad etc.) can bond with but I know it's not for everybody

Honestly, if she is breastfeeding exclusively, I can understand, but I don't get that. How do you work and breastfeed exclusively? Unless you are a stay at home mom, it doesn't seem sustainable. That's another topic though.

I meant breastfeeding with out pumping. 

I would breast feed as much as possible, and pump when needed. If I had a baby, I'd cry if I had to give him/her formula.
I don't even want to do whole milk when it's time.

Honestly, if she is breastfeeding exclusively, I can understand, but I don't get that. How do you work and breastfeed exclusively? Unless you are a stay at home mom, it doesn't seem sustainable. That's another topic though. 

I went to school full time & breastfed exclusively for 14 months. Pumping and being to that baby when they need it is key!

All you people saying she could've pumped at home before graduation sound hella silly. 1st off do you see how huge her jugs are. Breast milk is produced every second. I pumped all the time and it felt like I never pumped at all. She could've been prepared and the baby could've drank all the milk that she pumped. Who wants to hear a crying baby at a hot, long, dry arse graduation??? Not I said the cat. I'm proud of her making it to graduation with a new born baby and feeding that baby when nature called. I see's nothing wrong with what she did.

She's talking about not pumping, exclusively breastfeeding.
But if all the milk is from the breast, pumping or not, it's still exclusively breastfeeding..

EXACTLY! It hurts NOT to pump at times because they get so full! Luckily I'm a little a cup lol & C at the time.

How do we sound silly. I am not saying, that thirty minutes before she left graduation she should have pumpedConfused

You can pump all the time and keep breast milk for months. Either way, you are right that she could've pumped, but I doubt she did. She seemed like she purposely did this and purposely took the photo op. 

I just think the latter was in bad taste.

Nah Nita.... Think back to when you went to graduation. you have to be there at 8:30 in the morning. Ceremony starting at 11 right. So she pumped at 7:30 before going to graduation. ceremony starts at 11 and the ceremony takes atleast 3 hours. Speeches and all. Ain't no way a baby will be ok with eating the next meal at 4pm. No Ma'am. The person that took the picture just caught her while she was feeding. Its not like she said hey everyone look at me i'm breast feeding my baby!!!

Its unrealistic. She could've pumped and the baby could've wanted more milk. hmmm what do you do?

So I tried to do a quick pump and ran out of milk. 

excused myself and breast fed. It's not like "I" would walk across stage with a baby on my nip. I wouldn't have taken a photo either, just like if I were changing my child at a graduation.

i feel like when people posts pictures, they want attention...she got what she wanted meh

this. She knew what she was doing by (1) posing for the picture and (2) sharing it on fb.....

Even though I don't think she should've taken a pic of her breastfeeding I hate when people say it's inappropriate to breastfeed somewhere. When exactly is it the appropriate time to breastfeed your hungry baby?

It's not her breastfeeding that bothers me I wish she was more discreet
It's people feeling the need to share every aspect of their lives with the internet
Somethings should remain private

sstttuuuuppppsssss
Guess who has a one year old who refuses to drink formula
Guess who breastfeeds on demand, anytime, anywhere


All day everyday with no care in the world cause when my daughter gets her titi she  is all like 


So when I read threads like this and realize that breastfeeding bothers people I'm all like

Babies are gonna want to eat, no matter what's going on, they could give 2 shyts about what you're doing 'cuz dangit......they're HUNGRY! LOL

I can understand that.....I get it!

But to take a picture of an intimate moment between mom and baby and post it on the social media, I don't understand the purpose of that.

And ftr, i hope the women in here who say that tatas should be viewed in a non sexual manner stay consistent. If your 17 y.o daughter wants to lay out in the pool sans bikini top you dont get defensive or your children come across a tv program in which breasts are on full display (Rated R movie, rated MA tv show) that yall dont rush to change the channel or cover their eyes, ijs...

this sounds sooo disgusting.  

there's no way i would ever go into a public bathroom to feed my child.  makes me want to gag.

This all could have been avoided if we stopped giving a sh*t about when and how women breastfeed. LOL

Many folk are against posting the picture . I used a cover to avoid sick looks men would give me . I understand both sides.  . Several of the male grads felt uncomfortable . We are talking about young men . I think she made a mistake by posting the picture on any part of facebook . People search all topics . I would feel uncomfortable exposing my entire breast to men in public , but women do it everyday for fashion . I wish more young mother's would loose the pacifier/ bottle and breastfeed if possible . I quit after 2 weeks due to the pain . Sorry . Cry
