So apparently breastfeeding is considered "obscene" in the eyes of facebook. Not only do I know women who've had their pictures removed I've had some of mine removed as well. Photos from the first time L-Train nursed after birth deleted and a warning that my account would be deleted if I continued violating the terms of service.
Apparently this photo contained too much nudity. It was the first time L-Train nursed, at less than an hour old.
Yet...it seems perfectly okay that there are groups geared towards pictures of women with large breasts in nothing but skimpy bikinis or their underwear. Why? Why hasn't anything been done about THEM? Seriously it pisses me off. Why is it when breasts are photographed while being used for their natural intent it's obscene but when they're used for sexual purposes it's not? Have we really traveled back in time to the days when nursing a baby was considered taboo?
WHY WHY WHY??? When is it going to become normal again? When are women going to stop hiding to feed their babies? Just remember if it weren't for breasts being used to feed infants none of us would be here today. Think about that while you delete our photos and try to force us into bathrooms, hot cars, or under blankets.
