Breastfeeding Is 'Vile And Borderline Incest'

Mother breast feeding baby

Ever used your breasts for what they were intended? That's feeding a baby, not topless modelling in case you were wondering. Well then, you could be guilty of child abuse. According to wannabe celebrity, Josie Cunningham, breastfeeding is basically a form of incest.

Josie who? You know that, erm, intellectually challenged lass from Leeds who had a boob job on the NHS, before getting pregnant and threatening to abort the baby so she could appear on Big Brother.

Oh yeah, her. She changed her mind about the abortion and recently gave birth to a daughter, Grace Neiv (though perhaps she should have checked the spelling first).

Instead of snuggling up with her newborn, Josie has been spending her time between sterilising bottles doing what she does best, that is shit stirring on Twitter. Like that other rent-a-gob, Katie Hopkins (only a bit more dim ) Josie is so desperate for fame that she resorts to goading other actually-famous people on social media.

She told her 58.6 thousand followers: 'Wish people would stop asking if I'm breast feeding like Kimberly Walsh. No I'm not! I think the idea is vile and borderline incest!'

Presumably even Josie knows what breastfeeding means. Though perhaps someone should remind her of the correct definition of incest, that is: the crime of having sexual intercourse with a parent, child, sibling, or grandchild. Who's making the vile comparisons now, hey Josie?

Not content with offending huge swathes of women and turning a despicable act into a cheap tweet, Josie continued in her bid for attention.

'People saying its natural.... Maybe it was before powdered milk – in the same way it was 'natural' to walk around naked before clothes,'

Genius. So are other 'natural' foods also out? Carrots, apples, potatoes? Should we all be eating Smash instead? Or has Miss foot-in-mouth not yet worked out that 'powdered milk' started out as 'natural' milk - albeit from a cow rather than a human being.

But it would be pointless to enter into a discussion about breastfeeding here, as Josie's aim clearly isn't to contribute to the (yawn) breast versus bottle debate. As usual, her only mission is to thrust herself into the limelight by any means possible. And being both talentless and unremarkable, the only way she can do this is by spewing out deliberately shocking tweets in the hope of getting a reaction.

Josie has previously made it clear that any publicity is good publicity. Which is more of a reflection of her warped view of motherhood, and lack of intellect, than any kind of truth.

As was no doubt her intention, Josie's outburst has spawned a sea of incandescent tweets. She's been derided as at best 'uneducated' and 'immature' and at worst - well, I won't repeat those here.

Kimberly Walsh has kept a dignified silence on the whole thing. The former Girls Aloud singer gave birth to a son, Bobby, a few weeks ago and admitted she found breastfeeding a struggle to start with, before finally cracking it.

Fortunately, Josie's views on breastfeeding are so transparently stupid that they are unlikely to deter any new mum planning to feed her baby that way. And her tasteless, crass comments won't have won her any respect with bottle-feeding mums either.

Because what Josie doesn't realise is that bottle or boob, the only thing mums need is support.

Having threatened to have an abortion to further her career, then bragged about smoking and drinking during pregnancy, this new baby could have been a chance for Josie to make amends. Sadly, this doesn't seem to be the case. If it was possible for her to make herself look any more ignorant or desperate than she did already, then she's succeeded.

Unfortunately, we probably haven't heard the last of Josie Cunningham. The only thing bigger than her NHS cleavage is her mouth. Though like her boobs, nothing useful will ever come out of that either.
