The Julie Bowen breast feeding images have stirred different reactions from those who have seen it; some shows, like The View, did not even show the images. Julie Bowen stars the hit comedy series Modern Family. She has twins who she breast feeds together and she showed the picture of how the twins feeds. Here is a little about it from Forbes:
Bowen used her appearance on George Lopez Tonight to poke fun at herself and described nursing her twins as a great way to lose weight, calling her twins "two liposuction machines" that "suck it all out, the fat."
Now there are stirrings that Bowen and Lopez should not have shown the picture. Another talk show, The View, apparently refused to air the same photo. A Fox news blogger asked in a survey if: "These are private shots that should be kept as such"? (The counterpoint from Bonnie Fuller is here.) So the media filter has reduced the important act of breast-feeding to either an inappropriate form of exhibitionism or a weight-loss technique.
