re-post: “INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY & FACEBOOK’S MISOGYNY!!” by Female+1

My Thoughts:

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.

A Petition to Sesame Street on Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding on Sesame Street, Please.

(On the Lettuce Edge) - old site

A few years ago, someone pointed me to this Sesame Street clip from 1977 with the wonderful Buffy breastfeeding her baby Cody and Bigbird asking all about it.   Since that day, I have returned to the clip several times – both alone and to share with my children.

Today, I was happy to discover this piece on Huffington Post where mothers are calling on Sesame Street to bring breastfeeding back to Sesame Street.  It is actually pretty hard to fathom that it is controversial to include breastfeeding in the mix of ways to feed babies along with bottle feeding.  The piece includes several links to clips which show how breastfeeding was removed from other Sesame Street pieces over the years including this sweet version of  You’re My Baby which includes a brief breastfeeding clip that was removed from a later version.

You can sign the petition too by following this…
