Breastfeeding Pictures on Facebook
Breastfeeding is Natural
Facebook has decided they are offended by pictures of mothers breastfeeding their babies, well I'm offended that they have removed them.
Facebook is filled with photos and videos of people highlighting themselves and other "friends" in sexy and almost nude positions - and that doesn't offend them. Facebook friends' posts are filled with links that direct their followers to inappropriate content; that includes links to websites, films, trailers and especially music videos jammed with inappropriate visuals from numerous sources.
It seems to me they are implying that breastfeeding is MORE offenseive and inappropriate than than all the close to pornographic inuendo in the form of jokes, cartoons, photos, videos and updates that they allow to be displayed on their site. This makes no sense to me, when were they born?
Breastfeeding is more natural and healthy than giving a baby anything else in a bottle. In these days of processed foods and replacement of our local food supply we need to remember the first food we were ever meant to have; our mother's milk.
The Best Food for Baby
Created for a Reason
The breast actually exists for a reason; it was not created to be part of the female anatomy so that men would have something to get all excited about. The female breast exists so that women can feed their babies. Can you believe that? In our world we have been taught to believe that a woman's breast is for men, not for babies, but that is simply not true.
The breast was not created to be glorified and used as a lure for sex: man created that illusion. They have also gotten better at abusing that imagery by using the media and marketing this misrepresentation of women. They (the entertainment & media industry) continually have pushed the line of acceptability and now the pedulum is swinging; Facebook has decided that breastfeeding a baby is the dirty, unacceptable image.

Do you think Breastfeeding is important to the health of a child?
Apparently Facebook doesn't know that breasts actually have a purpose other than cheap entertainment for men. Or do they? Have they have decided to push the imagery of how we are actually meant to live far away, so we'll easily accept the crap they are associated with now and the direction they are going? The kind of control they are enforcing is directional and that makes me wonder about the intergity of the company.
It makes me wonder how a company so progressive can be offended enough by breastfeeding to take the pictures off the site. What happened in their world to make them see this as a negative image? I want to know if they were breastfed; any of them? It has my curiosity hightened to think of a group of people that are collectively distraught over breastfeeding pictures, instead of the other content passing through their site ... It just doesn't make any sense to me.
