Im with Facebook on this one.


So these Australian mothers are upset because facebook has been taking down photo's of them that show them breastfeeding.


TextSo far 391 people have been recorded as having had breastfeeding photos removed by Facebook, according to website Tera.ca which was set up to collect all the images Facebook has taken down. Of those, 375 have been temporarily banned from using Facebook - sometimes more than once. Read more: www.news.com.au...


I think these people should be ashamed of themselves. It is very offensive and disgusting that they would display such a thing on facebook. I am surprised by all the mothers that seem to have no problem with breastfeeding in public.

These people should show some consideration for others.

I thought it was un-PC of me to voice my disapproval actually. Cant offend those precious mothers can we? If it wasnt for having to worry about being PC someone would have told them to put those things away a long time ago.

And yes,its disgusting. They should be arrested.

Yes, I have this to add, in case you missed it from my previous comment:

Public breastfeeding is as natural as me eating a sanwich for lunch on a park bench.

Having sex is pretty natural too but Id prefer not to see you do that in public or on facebook.

Are you gonna tell me that a women giving birth is natural and beautiful too? I think not. And we dont want that on networking sites either.

I think those people who say breast feeding is disgusting never had a mother, and dont have a girlfriend or wife, hungry children like to be fed, if they are not fed, they scream/cry/ make one hell of a fuss, and the mother is accused of being a bad mother, thats half the trouble with this world, its run by uptight men.(probably upset they don,t have nice looking chests.or access to one!)

Having sex is vastly different to having lunch.

Do you really think a guy with my wit does not have access to a nice chest? Im a looker too.
Females are no match for me.

Im uptight because I find public breastfeeding offensive? Its offensive.

And Im not alone in thinking that. Not at all.

Why is it disgusting for a woman to use her breasts for the reason they are intended, but okay for women to let them hang out for male entertainment?

Are you saying the baby should go hungry because you cant control your eyes? If you don't want to see it don't look.

I think you're trolling and have no problem with it. If you're serious and really do then I feel sorry for you.

It's like being disgusted by watching someone eat at a restaurant.



is it really the same, I don't think so

:O So you're anti-boobie! Even when they are doing what they are MEANT to do? Do you complain when a dog breast feeds her young? No, you don't. So stop this and act like a grown up. It's natural and people shouldn't be forced to hide something that is natural and not being done to harm anyone, in fact it's being done to nourish a child.

Facebook’s terms of use state that users cannot post content that is hateful, pornographic, contains nudity or incites violence. Read more: www.news.com.au...



“When it comes to uploaded photos on Facebook, the vast majority of breastfeeding photos comply with our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which closely mirrors the policy that governs broadcast television, and which places limitations on nudity due to the presence of minors on our site. “On some occasions, breastfeeding photos contain nudity – for example an exposed breast that is not being used for feeding – and therefore violate our terms. When such photos are reported to us and are found to violate our policies, the person who posted the photo is contacted, and the photos are removed. “Our policies strive to fit the needs of a diverse community while respecting everyone’s interest in sharing content that is important to them, including experiences related to breastfeeding. “ Read more: www.news.com.au...


Fair and reasonable response from Facebook it seems.

Precisely! If your child sits there screaming because it is hungry you are made to feel like a pariah, sort the problem out and you are 'disgusting'. Purlease! The world isn't run by men, but by little boys who find nature icky. Pathetic doesn't even close to describing this mentality.
