The topic of breastfeeding in public has always been a controversial one. So it's no surprise that this particular story is causing quite the social media stir.

A woman named Brittni was on the receiving end of some backlash after she posted a picture of herself breastfeeding at Disneyland online.

Brittni has always believed that the nourishment of one's baby does not have to be something mothers should do secretly and behind closed doors. She is an advocate for public breastfeeding and sees no reason why anyone should believe otherwise.

The photo uploaded by the mother of two toddlers went viral and she received all kinds of responses, both positive and negative.

In her post, she explained that her 10-month-old got hungry as they stood in line. Brittni did not hesitate to pull her top down and feed her son.

Most people in the vicinity glared at her angrily. In fact, two of them were captured in the photo that her husband took of her.

Brittni couldn't be bothered one bit. She smiled proudly as she posed for her pictures, completely ignoring those who might have been feeling uncomfortable, offended or even disgusted.

Of course, as soon as the picture hit the 'net, it quickly went viral. People were pitching in with all kinds of opinion. There were those who believed she could have covered up at least a little bit:

Then there were some who felt it was not the breastfeeding itself that was the issue but how Brittni approached things.

Then there were the supportive mothers who said the woman had a right to feed a baby anytime and in anyway she wants.

We imagine that this is one argument that will probably continue to go on for years. In the meantime, we can only urge people to be kinder to each other, even when they disagree.
