The point is we are talking about Facebook. The sole purpose of posting photos on Facebook is to display yourself in hoping of receiving likes by people
Hence the like button. In this case breastfeeding is more of a personnel issue and doesn't need to looked at from a photo perspective and hoping to receive likes over it...If anything it is just showing off.


Sorry but I know what it is about... I have been here since page 1. Like I said before... this thread has gone from posting to fb, to public breastfeeding, to starting all kinds of personal attacks...

What are you getting at? I agree it is a personal issue, but IMO should be kept private or discreetly handled... not showcased.

That it shouldn't be showcased over a social network...That is all.

Referencing a Hollywood movie to make your point is weak... Time to follow what Hollywood says now... No mine never fell off, but mine are also not a object of attraction as well... Boobs are great. Just not when they are feeding babies in public... now in my hands and on my mouth in my own PRIVATE residence is different...



Smartbeatz, that bit about the film wasn't something I added to solidify my point, it was genuinely just a joke I added on. Also, how you do you know your nipples are not an object of attraction? They might be the finest nipples in the universe for all I know, have some pride in your nipples will you? I like the sound of them already.

I also believe things like showing breast feeding pictures should not be allowed on the social website. As natural as it may be, Facebook is not a sexual or porno website. Showing breasts in public is considered to be porn (unless the baby and breast are covered up for privacy). Eating a sandwich in public is not porn. Two vastly different scenes.

Kudos to Facebook, I hope they keep the site clean.

Sorry but to prohibit pics of breastfeeding moms can limit a woman's need for info. My mom didn't breastfeed, none of my friends did. Instead they offered up a all kinds of horror stories to keep me from doing it. Actually I got more heat from other women than I did men. That speaks volumes about our society. That attitude is repressive for women who want to try. I needed help asap, breastfeeding help.

The doctor gave me illustrated books that looked more like comics. Ridiculous. I wasn't born knowing how to breastfeed. Although it's natural there are many things one could/should do to help ward off real trouble or possible failure. Our society is greatly lacking in some of the old ways used by women for generations. While Drs like to promote breastfeeding unless they've done it they really can't offer much.

Women back in the day learned as children watching their moms breastfeed. It's not as easy as you might think and could be the reason why some women fail. Nothing wrong with info imo. There's enough that could go wrong without making women feel uptight about it. Emotions/stress can impact milk production.

We should be encouraging modern women to do it instead of making them feel obscene and outcast. Pics of happy moms feeding their babies naturally might encourage more women to at least give it a try. To categorize something so vital for humanity as primitive/dirty to the extent that it must be kept from public view sends a loud message. Whether you accept that or not it's true.

I completely agree. There is everything right about women being good Mothers.

Well, if it's natural to show a baby feeding from a mother's breast on Facebook then I demand the right to photograph and display my bat and balls, as that is where the damn baby came from in the 1st place... hey, it's natural right?


No, I don't need to see that thanks and I'm sure as blimmin' that no-one wants to see "little Mister_Bit"


The irony is, the same women who fight to get topless models removed from sight are the ones that demand to show theirs in public.

^ Their excuse being is because they are simultaneous showing an innocent baby in their picture. Can it be said that the feeding mom's are suffering low self-esteem and therefore have the need to show off their mammary glands?

On the other hand, if a UFO was seen in the background, then I have no problem looking at the picture

There is no similarity between someone putting up a picture of their testicles and someone showing a picture of a baby nursing.

No one is taking anything away from you. If you don't want to be friends with a nursing Mommy, then don't be.

There is EVERYTHING right about a woman being a good Mom and giving her children the best. You can see almost nothing when a woman is nursing.

Very bizarre how in American culture [primarily] we've come to identify breast as sexual/pornographic... I say that it's complete nonsense & quite irrational. First off not all women have "good-looking" breast & after seeing some of the banned photos I'm actually turned off. But I had a good laugh knowing how people are actually overreacting. Do you really have a problem with a nipple? So you find a nipple distasteful?? NONSENSE.

I find nothing 'offensive' about these photos, whether or not you find them disgusting is relative. The OP went as far to say they should be arrested. PLEASE tell me you're not serious. If you think a woman should be arrested for exposing her breast, let alone on her Facebook, you have issues.

I can see why some would want these photos taken down, and I don't really blame them; only because that's the current societal mindset. Our culture is literally obsessed with sex, promotes it at every corner; but when you see a pair on Facebook with a child feeding you freak out. Or if a woman is topless in public you want her arrested...

It's entirely natural and right for a mother to breastfeed a child, I was breast fed... it's entirely another thing to put photos up on a social network site


...and what could be more natural than the creation of said baby? It can't feed until it's created right? So why not display pictures of that?

Ok, you've got a baby, well done, have a cookie.... We don't need pictures of breastfeeding on a social networking site.


..and if the argument is for information and training young mothers, put the pics on a young mother's web site.

You can see more at the mall.

I think that some of you gentlemen are merely.... jealous of babies.
Or think that their heads are in the way of your view.



Even in historical cultures where women covered from head to toe, they did not think as you.

No fair Aeons...pictures like that make me broody! Not only is it the most natural thing in the world, that close, quietness...now I feel weepy...I think I'll leave this thread while my dignity is still in tact (assuming I ever had any).

Thanks

Breasts being sexual or being pornographic are two different things entirely.

Breasts are sexual, they are supposed to attract men, how else would the human species survive if men weren't sexually attracted to women and vice verca? All animals, mammals or otherwise use sexual attraction. Humans are no different... live with it.

Or if you take the psychological perspective...men find them attractive because it reminds them of the warmth and comfort of being snuggled into their own mother's bosom. Freudianly speaking, most men are attracted to women who remind them in some way of their mother, or ideal of a mother...

Well respectfully, everyone knows Freud was an idiot lol


If whenever a man saw breasts and thought of his mother the planet would've been barren millions of years ago

Besides as I said, it's animal nature, it's part of nature, plants sexually attract each other too.. it's not a "male ego" thing, it's normal.

Really? News to me. Here I was thinking it was so that you could share pictures you think are pretty/interesting with your friends.


If anything it is just showing off.


Actually, what you just described as 'the sole purpose of posting photos on Facebook' is just showing off.

Although, we should add, that most men harbour a deep psychological rejection of mother, based on the 'trauma' of seperation, which usually means, that they often go for the opposite of their mother. Proportionally, and in other ways. Again...Freudianly speaking...

Haha...sexual attraction therefore, by your own description there, must be far more than just about breasts. Have you never been attracted to someone's voice over the phone? Breasts are mere accessories to attraction, not the basis of it.
