    Info Facebook banned breastfeeding photos

    This article has been published at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - visit our site for full content.

    Breastfeeding or nursing represents a way to feed infants and it’s also a natural part of being a mother. But the popular networking Facebook removed all the photographs which showed this type of mothers nursing their infants. And this wasn’t left unpunished as on Saturday many activists gathered round in front* of Facebook’s Palo Alto headquarters in order to make protests connected to this censorship. Yet, the Website clearly stated that they had no problems with breastfeeding and that they only try to keep away images of fully exposed breasts. But the activists think that the images aren’t obscene and shouldn’t be taken off the Website, even if Facebook’s decision is irreversible.

    For example, Heather Farley put a photo of hers while breastfeeding her infant around Halloween, but the picture was removed in November. In addition, Farley was warned that she would have her account erased if another photo of this kind would have to be removed again. Barry Schintt, spokesperson for Facebook, stated that the pictures which show a nipple or areola are considered to be vulgar and violate the policy of the site. Thus, any kind of photo which presents such images has to be removed.

    Although it's not something I would go looking for on FB, that type of pic is definately a 'tease'

    Don't really know why you would want to put them on in the first place unless you are trying to tease people or something. Maybe they like the idea of thousands of strangers getting a glimpse?

    The only time I like to see somebody sucking on a breast is when it's me.
