I’ve added a new button to my sidebar to call attention to Facebook’s decision to ban images of babies being breastfed, while simultaneously allowing much more offensive content, including other pictures that show women’s breasts at least as much as the breastfeeding pictures show, as well as, apparently, other much more offensive and dangerous content. Here’s a link to the original photo that apparently set this off. Some people may not wish to see it, but it really doesn’t “show” anything.
If you’re interested in joining in a virtual protest, check out the postings at the League of Maternal Justice. If you’re no longer nursing, you can help by sending in your old breastfeeding photos. And everyone can help by spreading the word, or adding a button of your own. (On WordPress, you can add a button by putting the button code into a Text widget.)
