Somebody needs to tell Candian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to chill at being so perfect all the time. It’s borderline unfair at this point. At the heels of photobombing a wedding while shirtless (because of course), The Other Amazing Canadian JT tweeted the most feminist PDA of all time on Monday: a photo of his partner of 10 years, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, breastfeeding their youngest son. The tweet was posted in honor of World Breastfeeding Week and features a caption from Grégoire Trudeau that says, “Let’s support mothers to breastfeed anytime, anywhere.” I mean, COME ON. #Relationshipgoals x 100000000

World Breastfeeding Week aims to raise awareness of the relationship between breastfeeding and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The UN explains the need to highlight the relationship on its website, “By recognizing that breastfeeding is a key to sustainable development, we will value our wellbeing from the start of life, respect each other and care for the world we share.”

Surprisingly, in 2016 breastfeeding in public is still a controversial issue. Even though feeding a child is a natural part of life, women are still shamed and harassed for doing it in public. Mothers can’t even post photos online without someone giving an opinion no one asked for. Not everyone is as progressive and awesome as the Prime Minister, unfortunately. Trudeau’s tweet may seem inconspicuous, but he’s professing an extremely political and progressive stance by supporting his wife. He’s considered “Canadian’s Wokest Bae” for a reason!

Hopefully, others will follow the couple’s lead.

Happy Breastfeeding Week, parents !
