It totally pisses me off! Facebook continues to remove people’s profiles for breastfeeding photos. There is no case by case basis where a fbook employee reviews reported photos for actual obscenity before deleting said photos or artwork. In 2012 we ALL should support a woman’s right to breastfeed or not to breastfeed, to practice extended breastfeeding and/or to wean when she and her child are ready. OUR photos and artwork, and those photos and artwork of world history, should not be demonized for showing part of an areola, nipple, child suckling, or whatever is in that visual representation of breastfeeding!
Breastfeeding is Normal.
Facebook is Not.
There is something deeply wrong with shaming a woman for breastfeeding and being proud of it.

On Monday 6th February 2012 at 10.00am Facebook offices worldwide will be the focus of breastfeeding women and their supporters. Earlier this month Facebook removed photos of Vancover mum Emma Kwasnica breastfeeding her children classing the photos as “sexually explicit”. Not surprisingly this has angered mums worldwide and again questioned the public perception of breastfeeding and especially social breastfeeding.
Emma Kwasnica is not the first mother to have had breastfeeding photos removed from Facebook, according to the website Terca.ca, 391 people are recorded as having had breastfeeding photos removed by Facebook.
The International Facebook Nurse-In is one of a growing number of protests that have been occurring in recent months as new mums ask not to be harassed and disapproved of as they feed their children. The most high profile recent event was the nurse-in that occurred in Target stores across America after a mum was asked to move…

Update: The breastfeeding sit-in at the Facebook headquarters in Prineville, OR was cancelled by the local organizer due to the difficulty of getting to the location. Of course, if you want to make your way out there and organize a group of your breastfeeding buddies, you have that right 🙂
If there are any other Breastfeeding Actions in Oregon, feel free to post them in a comment here.
Find the facebook headquarters closest to you and join the nurse-in! If you’re not breastfeeding, bring a sign and show your support 🙂

Here is one more reason to boycott facebook, if selling your personal information to other corporations and the government wasn’t enough…
For a few years, facebook has been giving warnings and disabling accounts that have breastfeeding photos and artwork.
I am one of those people who have been permanently removed from facebook and who chooses not to return under another email, also against their “rules.”
Stand with me, post your breastfeeding photos or public domain artwork and photography on your facebook profile.
If they warn you and/or disable your account, boycott them.
