Do your thang, Mila Kunis!
In a very no f*cks given interview with Vanity Fair, Mila gave a very pro-breastfeeding PSA shaming haters who've made her feel uncomfortable for feeding her daughter Wyatt Isabelle in public. Considering M.K. is now pregnant with her second child, the subject has become near and dear to her heart once again.

The actress, who joins stars like Alyssa Milano in the fight against breastfeeding naysayers, explained that breastfeeding for her is a necessity rather than a political statement:
"I support every woman's choice in what she wants to do and whatever makes them happy, but for me, I did nurse my child and I literally breastfed everywhere. There were many times where I didn't bring a cover with me, and so I just did it in a restaurant, in the subway, in the park, at airports, and in planes. Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child. She's hungry. I need to feed her whether it's out of a bottle or out of my boob no matter where I was."
Well, that's a very reasonable position. What parent would let their child go hungry for the sake of not pissing someone off?
Elaborating on her stance, the beauty argued that America sexualizes the breast too much for its own good:
"It always made my husband and I feel a little weird. It took us a little back because people actually looked at us in a shameful [way], and we were like, ‘Oh my God,' because it's so not a sexual act. It didn't matter to me what other people thought. That's what I chose to do, but I think it's unfortunate that people are so hard on women who choose to do it and do it in public. In the States and in our culture, we sexualize the breast so much that there's an aspect of it that people just don't know how to wrap their head around the idea of showing your breast in public. But I respect the opinions on both sides. If it's not for you, don't look."
Interesting. No matter what side of the debate you're on, you have to appreciate Mila's decision to "respect both sides."
So, what's your opinion on breastfeeding?
