Facebook bans breastfeeding
Like most social networking websites, Facebook has rules against posting naked pictures of yourself (or anyone else). It's a good rule -- mostly because it keeps pornographers from creating fictitious profiles just to promote their websites (and let's be honest, even if we're friends, I probably don't want to see you naked).
But where's the line?
The site has recently come under fire for removing pictures of breastfeeding mothers, and banning users on the grounds that they'd uploaded "obscene content" to their profiles. In response, nearly 7,500 users have joined a group on the site called "Hey Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene!"
However, many mothers say they've had photos removed in which no breast was exposed -- leading many to wonder about the site's real intentions. Others who have been banned for posting breastfeeding photos have been told by Facebook that their accounts won't be re-instated under any condition -- even though the photos have been removed from their profiles.
All this, when it's been established time and again that breastfeeding in public is legal, and companies that discriminate against breastfeeding mothers are routinely fined for doing so. I have a feeling that -- if push comes to shove -- this may eventually get the site in some hot water (as well it should).
