Petition Tag - breastfeeding photos
I am a breastfeeding mother first and foremost. I am a huge lactivist, I attend support groups, nurse ins, I nurse in public, and recently completed breastfeesing peer counselor training.
Recently I was blocked from Facebook, because of breastfeeding photos. Obviously this isn't the first time it has happened to me, nor the first time it has happened to other nursing mommies. In other situations, Facebook has stated breastfeeding photos "violate" their rights because the ENTIRE breast is exposed. It is IMPOSSIBLE to expose an entire breast while breastfeeding. Facebook talks about "their" rights. What about the rights of breastfeeding mothers? What about the rights of our nursing children? How are our rights not violated?
There are more "offensive" photos on Facebook, yet those "half naked men and women" photos have 15,000 likes. We as breastfeeding mothers and our supporters have not only an obligation to ourselves but to our children.
Breastfeeding is a normal, natural and beautiful thing and its about time Facebook realizes that!
