“Cuz the Nipple is Dope” — Actress & Filmmaker Lena Dunham

Breastfeeding has a new champion.   Actress and filmmaker Lena Dunham posted a picture of her nursing friend Sarah Sophie Flicker  on Instagram yesterday:

“My @sarahsophief feeding the brand new Dusty. I made the flower crown and she added the flower censor. Wish she didn’t have to cuz the nipple is dope. Instagram, get down with the nipple.”

Both Dunham (creator and star of HBO series “Girls”) and Flicker (The Citizen’s Band) are apparently aware that Instagram, like Facebook, has had a problem with breastfeeding . . . or more accurately, a problem educating their staff on how to tell the difference between breastfeeding, which is normal, healthy, and accepted around the world; and nudity, and even pornography, which is considered more private or taboo in many cultures.

So thank you, Lena and Sarah, for using your influence and visibility to speak up for the need for acceptance of  girls using their girls, if you don’t mind the pun, to feed and nurture their babies, and to protect their and their babies’ health.   Thank you for the beautiful, serene photo which captures perfectly the miracle of breastfeeding.

Can we give these ladies @lenadunham and @sarahsophief some love on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to thank them?
