Our update about breastfeeding advocate Jeanna Hoch, whose Facebook account was blocked when she posted a new version of a photo supposedly removed by mistake, inspired readers on both sides of this controversial issue. Here's the take of someone critical of the posted pics.

There is nothing natural about breastfeeding with both of your tits hanging out. I'm all for breastfeeding but she is clearly posting these pictures for attention. Grow up and get you attention elsewhere and don't include your baby in it.

I agree. These women are attention seekers. When your child sees those baby photos with tits all over it's face and out in public, they will be SOOOO embarrassed. Try a little modesty.

The world is being destroyed right before our eyes and we're arguing about whether one breast is more appropriate than two... Think about it for a moment.

Show those working ladies off!! If it bothers you, don't look. Move along. Don't worry.

I kind of agree. She's doing it to get a thrill over getting lusted after by perves.

As a breastfeeding mom, in my home I have fed my baby shirtless, sometimes both your tits ARE out. Just sayin......

I was breast fed! So what!!!!!! Stop being stupid! Lil formula is not natural! She should look up the definition on natural!!!!! If she is lazy here it is: 1. existing in or caused by nature; not made or caused by humankind. Since titi milk is made naturally! Hmmmm I would say it is! And since we are labeling people for what they thing I label her "ignorant" lol

I think women should be able to flaunt their stuff. That being said, this woman is disgusting. She didn't post this to be motherly she posted it to be sexy. The baby is barely in the picture and she's all positioned like "Jack, I want you to draw me like one of your French girls..." Motherly, Ha please! (I also think IT IS fine to be a sexy mom, but she was using this in a selfish, dramatic, self-serving kind of way...)

Guys...you cannot compare peeing in public to a woman breastfeeding in public. Maybe you all shouldn't be able to swim shirtless if you want to compare the correct body part. Nobody want to see your nasty penis or it's waste.

Breast milk is food. Urine is a hazardous waste. Not even close to the same thing.

Don't care who likes it or not. Go ahead and pull both of your tits out, I don't mind :D As long as you don't....

I suppose breastmilk is just a sprinkle all over the masses for fun?

You can still breast feed and cover up! No need to have both of your saggy tits hanging out! Be respectful when in public! Thats all there is to it! Plan and simple!

If you feel uncomfortable that's your problem! My babies gotta eat! Jerks!

You know, it gets so over sensationalized that everyone is paying attention to it so other things can slip through the cracks without anyone saying a word. For example the hundreds of troops sent over to protect an embassy could just be the tip of the iceberg of soldiers being deployed to wage war on ISIS "Are they still called that?" Or another big example, the big corporations in the news fighting over things when in fact our rights are being chipped away by the Government and Big Business.

If you don't like it don't look. This should be everybody's mentality. It's not your body so it's not your choice. If you don't like breast feeding I'm public than don't do it.

I was hoping for two tits to be hanging out in this article. Boo.

She should get an indecent exposure ticket! If I can't pee in a dark alley, then this bitch shouldn't be able to put BOTH tits out when clearly the child can only suck on one at a time. Stuff them both in its mouth, or cover it with your hand or at least wipe the excess milk dripping out! Ewwww

Daisy Keys

I personally never saw the need to have both out, but whatever floats your boat. If you don't like it, don't look.

Well it depends, nobody wants to see two fried eggs hanging to the belly.

You only use one at a time anyway lol

Yeah I have to agree. Both out is just too much

People are getting lost in the topic. Of course everyone wants to jack off to you naked. It's about doing it in common areas. No I don't want to watch your baby suck on your tit while I'm eating.

The puritans need to get over their fear of the human body. Seeing a tit or 2 never hurt anyone. Being angry over bare tits is pretty pathetic.

Holy shit are we all still upset about this? Ok hold on let me get back into 2 weeks ago.

Technically being naked is natural .....people let's get over this argument! We've all got some variation of the same parts....it is a boob . Woopdy do. If you are so upset that she posted it for attention, why are you giving her your time???

Brest feeding is natural stop whinnying and release your parents raised a pussy.

America and the middle east are the only places that are ashamed of the human body. Laws against being naked were made by men with tiny penises. People need to grow up we are born naked!

Seriously, why give a fuck? WIth so many actual problems in the world, with a child starving to death every 5 minutes etc, THIS is what grinds your shit? If so, congrats, you passed the asshole test. If you don't like it, don't look. Let the mothers feed the babies.

If women have a problem with it, it's because the titties on"display" are nicer than what the offended has to offer, and the nicer pair might draw attention away from the offended... if guys have a problem, either the one breast feeling isn't that attractive, or his gf/wife has a problem and he's too much of a pussy to tell his offended gf/wife to shut the fuck up

I don't understand why boobs out makes a girl a "whore" whether she's breastfeeding or not. It's such a double standard. Men are posting shirtless pictures ALL the time whether I want to see it or not, and I'm not making a big deal about it. But breastfeeding especially, woman should not be shamed for feeding their child publically.

Why are we shaming her again?! This is ridiculous! I mean so what both her breast out.. If you are a man or don't breast feed just sit down and shut up with the awful comments. Most people don't know that you have to rotate breasts while feeding your child or you will be lip sided. Regardless that doesn't matter because this is only natural and it is perfectly ok!!! Also I see men shirtless all the time and it is ok!!!

The shame... she should act like a good decent Merican mother and feed her kids Mc'y D's. Seriously who ever made breastfeeding indecent? Its just part of natural life.

This is gross. No one wants to see your boobs!! Yes it natural but dont makebit public.

I really don't care either way, but just because something is natural doesn't mean that you don't have to have some modesty about it. Pooping is natural too, but I don't want to see it.
