Why Are Y’all Mad? Breastfeeding College Graduate Shamed On The Internet

June 9, 2014 ‐ By Veronica Wells

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, 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.

this could of been done without internet viewing....why was this needed to post on facebook in the first place?  

is she related to that female who dragged her baby on her train down the aisle when she was getting married?

congrats to her though on baby and her degree

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?
