Facebook's Anti-Breast Policy

Facebook is censoring pictures of mothers that are posting pictures of themselves breast feeding.

The mothers aren't taking this too kindly and are now scheduling a "nurse in" on December 27th in which thousands of mothers are expected to post a breast feeding picture as their main profile photo.

At first glance, I was thinking... "no one reallly wants to see that!" It is still a very private area of the body, it's not like we're living in a third world country here. I don't find it obscene as much as I just find it as distasteful.

After thinking about it though, it really does just depend on the picture. If it's from a distance and you can just tell what the mother and baby are doing, I have no issue with that. It's when we get up close and personal with the extreme closeups that are a little out of control. Click here to see what I mean.

All in all, I'm all about breast feeding. It's perfectly natural and healthy. I reaaaallllyy just don't need to see an extreme closeup of it on my Facebook.

What do you think?

  1. I would have to agree for the most part, on most of what you're saying.
