This kind of ignorant hostility is what breastfeeding mothers face all around the world in the United States* every day. This is just four tweets from this afternoon that were retweeted into my feed. Imagine how awful it is if you’re the woman on the receiving end of this hostility.

I really just don’t understand why so many women are offended by other women who breastfeed.
