Mom's 'Incestuous' Breastfeeding Videos Cause Online Stir
You're not always going to agree with everything you see on the internet.
That much was made obvious after people completely lost their composure at the sight of one woman's breastfeeding videos on YouTube.
According to Metro UK, a San Diego-based mother-of-two named Tasha Maile is dealing with major criticism over videos she posts online of her breastfeeding her children.
Maile's two sons, Josiah, 3, and Soul, 2, has appeared in multiple YouTube videos that have been viewed over 60 million times by people all over the world.
As expected, Maile's videos have divided the internet into two separate halves. While some viewers don't see anything wrong with Tasha Maile's breastfeeding videos, others have labeled them as "incestuous" and "disturbing."
Statements expressing disgust for Maile's videos have flooded her comments section on just about every video as well as on Facebook.
One mother commented,
I find this video very disturbing. She wants viewers to believe this is a natural mother and child bonding while breastfeeding. However, from the start, this doesn't appear to be natural but incestuous. Breastfeeding is a natural, beautiful extension of the mother and child bonding. However, this woman's exhibitionism certainly takes away from the wonderful bonding between other and child.
Tasha Maile is no stranger to the endless backlash she's received as a result of her many breastfeeding videos. After you admit you'd let your children breastfeed at 18 years old, you have to expect some kind of hate, right?
In a recent interview with Daily Mail, the mother-of-two explained,
What other people say is 100 percent to do with them and not with you. I listen to them [critics] and don't things too perfectly anymore. I feel compassion for them.
Still, most people just can't grasp why on Earth this woman would be so proud to put such a private matter on display as if it were some kind of show.
I'll personally say this... There's absolutely nothing wrong with breastfeeding your child. If people choose to absorb the natural act of breastfeeding the wrong way, that's on them.
However, I don't think it's completely necessary to post a series of videos on the internet for the world to see for the fun of it.
For instance, in one of her workout videos, Tasha Maile takes a brief break from her fitness routine so she can breastfeed her child on camera... Why?
Not everyone out there has the common decency and respect needed to comprehend something so delicate.
In addition to that, there's something about millions of people watching your children suck on your breasts that does not seem right. It's not like she's being strictly informational with her breastfeeding content.
Quite a few of these particular videos lack a deep message other than, 'hey look, I'm breastfeeding my kid on YouTube.'
Maile has basically created this treasure trove of personal videos our messed up planet just doesn't deserve.
I mean, you do realize MILLIONS of people aren't watching these videos because they're trying to figure out how to become master breastfeeders, right?
Their sick, twisted comments speak volumes.
