Social media sites light up over controversial photo

If you spent any time on social media yesterday, you know the Internet chatter was all about breast-feeding—specifically, Time magazine’s new cover featuring a three-year-old boy breast-feeding from a ladder while his beautiful mom, Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26, smiles into the camera.

Grumet discussed the reaction on the Today show this morning. On Twitter, she writes, “Oh my gosh! Aram and I are on the cover of @time magazine,” the news show reports. Her excitement met with mixed emotions, ranging from outrage to praise, from others over the cover story, which deals with “attachment parenting.”

Our favorite reaction belongs to writer and editor Julieanne Smolinski, who goes by the Twitter handle @BoobsRadley. The Huffington Post points out she wrote, “Photographing a grown woman’s exposed breast is one thing, but putting a helpless kid in camouflage cargo pants? Inexcusable.”
