BREASTS are OBSCENE?

I was really furious when I read recently about Facebook removing some mums' photos of them breastfeeding their babies! ...and the reason being what, obscene or something...how ridiculous.

I wonder if Facebook applies the same ruling to photos of scantily-clad females, females in bikinis and females who just simply upload photos of themselves exposing alot of flesh...

WHAT is so obscene about mums breastfeeding their babies, anyway? The fact that the babies are feeding, definitely NO NIPPLES are exposed, do you get it. Well I guess some idiots don't.

To me personally, seeing mums nursing their babies and likewise, seeing babies suckling on their mums' breasts, is the most beautiful picture i can imagine, so calm, so peaceful, so serene. THIS is what Mother Nature wants, THIS is how it is supposed to be.

Those who beg to differ or think otherwise,...well, my sympathies to them. They probably never had the benefit of being nursed by their mums OR never had the experience of what joy it is to nurse their own offsprings OR thinks that the BREASTS are only for ...... (u fill in the blank yourself). So there, I really pity them.

As for me, I've said it before and I am still saying it,
My BREASTS, My Business!!

Ciao!

I didn't know about this. Thank you for sharing. The right to breastfeed in public is protected in most states and on ALL governement property. It will be interesting to see if this right will honored on the internet and how the law will now be applied to public spaces such as myspace etc...

as a mom who proudly breastfed both of her babies - I agree! It is something that should be spoken and promoted more. Its better for the baby and for mom. you say it sister!
