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*.

Meh, not mad at her. I can't stand crying babies though. Heck I don't care for loud babies at most social events.

Her breast aren't represented sexually... so it's a problem...

If she had worn this under her gown, there would be no uproar
