Mum Highlights Double Standard of Body-Shaming By Copying THAT Kim Kardashian Selfie
We love the sentiment behind this photographer’s take on that Kim Kardashian selfie.
Birth photographer Lacey Barratt from Australia shared the below snap, which shows her breastfeeding her youngest child, on her social media accounts to draw attention to the double standards of body-shaming.
Alongside the picture on Instagram, she wrote: “I just felt the need to say this. As a woman who actively fights facebook and other social media platforms for censoring birth and breastfeeding images....this has bothered me.
“The double standard of body shaming I have seen because Kim Kardashian posted a censored nudie of her body. WHO CARES?! It is a womans body!! Only difference is a baby isnt hanging off her boob...so does that now make it innappropriate? No way!
“A womans body should be celebrated, regardless if there is a baby on the breast, or simply because, one feels like it. Lets be very very careful not to have the same double standard facebook has.
“Neither one of these images are sexual. Just two women's bodies at two very different times in their post partum walks [sic]”.
Her caption on Twitter read: “#stopbodyshaming it’s the same body if there is a baby attached or not… #doublestandards”.
Lacey’s work is all about celebrating birth and the postpartum body. She is described on her website as an “avid lover of birth, breastfeeding, and babywearing.”
Let’s just say, we are avid lovers of her work and this particular post!
