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.
