Ashley James fired back at trolls for making mums feel ashamed of breastfeeding.
The new mum defiantly posted snaps of herself breastfeeding on Instagram over the weekend as she took aim at keyboard warriors criticising women.
Ashley became a mum when she welcomed her son Alfie River Andrews into the world six weeks ago with her boyfriend Tom.
In a fiery message, Ashley unapologetically said she was not attention seeking with her breastfeeding snaps and insisted women shouldn’t be shamed.
She wrote: “Put your hands up if you see a woman with big boobs and make judgements and assumptions about her?
Ashley James bangs gremlins for shaming mums as she shares defiant breastfeeding snap “I’ve pretty much been topless since giving birth to my son 6 weeks ago.
Breastfeeding is constant and I honestly love it because it’s the first time I’ve felt like my big boobs have a pure purpose. I feel so mother earthy.
“During this time, my inbox has been flooded with creepy comments from men (weird to sexualise someone breastfeeding), and judgemental comments from women about how often they’re out, or about me attention seeking.
“It genuinely makes me so sad that there are still women who think I / other big boobed women get our boobs out for male attention.
I understand it though, we’re so conditioned to be that way.” In her honest post, Ashley revealed she had suffered a barrage of abuse for her “big boobs” since she was a teenager.
She added: “These comments aren’t new to me. They started when I was 13 years old and first grew big boobs… Being constantly told to stop seeking attention, or to put them away even in a vest top.
And I know other big boobed women have experienced the same.
“We spend our lives trying to avoid unwanted male attention, usually starting from when we are teenagers. Feeling uncomfortable when we notice people looking at our cleavage instead of our faces.
Trying to find the line between wearing what we feel good in and what we feel safe in. Finding a balance between sexy and frumpy. We know the pain of getting ready and feeling good and then our friends asking who we’ve got “the girls out for”.
Ashley became a mum when she welcomed her son Alfie River Andrews into the world six weeks ago with her boyfriend Tom New mum Ashley said she was “bored” of women being made to feel “ashamed of breastfeeding” by others.
“It’s the most natural thing in the world,” she insisted to fans. Her note was finished off with: “My boobs are out ALL THE TIME at the moment because that’s the reality of my situation.
But also because I’m bored of women being made to feel ashamed of breastfeeding. It’s the most natural thing in the world. It’s why we have boobs, and I’m not going to hide away in any public bathroom to do it.
In a fiery message, Ashley unapologetically said she was not attention seeking with her breastfeeding snaps and insisted women shouldn’t be shamed “And yes, I show off lingerie.
As someone with big boobs, I WISH I had that when I was younger. I wish I saw someone proud of their body and their big boobs and not being made to feel ashamed for their God given body – as I was for years.
“Please stop judging women with big boobs. Our boob size is not our morals. We WISH people wouldn’t stare at them, but they’re literally attached to our chest and we don’t want to dress like nuns.”
