Exactly!

I just wanted to add that these photos are most likely reported by "friends". The other girls out there with half naked pics, well their friends prob don't find the pics inappropriate and don't report them. I don't think fb goes looking for "indecent" photos, more like they are being brought to their attention.

But there are some I agree where I can see areola, and those should be taken down, as should any that are revealing ****ographic. I personally won't put up bf pics on facebook, as I see that as a private thing, but I don't care if other people do.
I have a hospital pic of me nursing DS2 for the first time and you can see my areola. I have huge areolas, no baby could ever cover it all. Its not at all p-rn. Why does nipple make it ****?

I dont see how breastfeeding is ever p-rnographic. Is a cat BFing graphic? Do you sheild your eyes at the petting zoo when the baby sheep goes in for a drink? Its insane.

Re: Breastfeeding & Facebook...

I don't get the big deal. A line has to be drawn somewhere and the photos being reported. If your friends/relatives feel uncomfortable with you posting them, then why post them? Furthurmor, if it is THAT important to you that they stay up, then unfriend those who are going to be offended since those people obviously don't belong on your fb page anyway.

I don't know that posting BFing pictures does anything to really promote BFing anyway. (It's kind of like posting pictures of a birth to get people interested in having babies.) Post interesting articles about it. Post personal stories about it. Post questions and have discussions. If you really feel the need to share a picture of yourself BFing email it to everyone or link it.

ETA: Maybe I should start a petition asking FB to allow crowning birth pictures on their site.

Re: Breastfeeding & Facebook...

Really? I am kinda shocked. Breastfeeding is something I do every 4 ish hours and have for 3 years. It is as normal and every day as lunch. It IS lunch. Its a huge part of my life, why wouldnt I share it with my friends?

Maybe, if someones pics offend you, you should unfriend them instead of reporting their photos.

This exactly.

I think breastfeeding pics are beautiful, no matter how much boob is showing.

I agree with you. If breastfeeding photos offended me, I'd first address it with them instead of being a little snitch. If I was really offended and my friend still didn't pacify me, I'd defriend them.

My point is that if the photos are so offensive to my friends, I don't want them as my friends. It works both ways.

I agree with this. I can't imagine what kind of person would snitch on their "friend" or be offended by a BF picture. Talk about needing to get a life.

I 100% agree. And I did the same thing up until Aaron weaned at 3 years old. I also posted pics on FB with varying degrees of skin showing. Thankfully none have ever been reported/deleted. I'd just assume if it offends someone they go ahead and delete me. They wouldn't even have to say anything to me personally because my own personal view is non-negotiable and I generally post what I want on my FB page.

I do too! I belong to a FB page that features breastfeeding art through the ages. With painting, photos, sculptures, etc.

I find the human body beautiful and nothing to be ashamed of. It's sad that our society has sexualized things so much that we can't seem to get back to the primal mode and realize that breasts are mammary glands first.

And really, even though I realize FB has a "right" to do this, where should it stop. In this case sense right leaning political quotes/pictures slamming left wing parties are offensive to me, I think they should be removed. Cursing offends me, it should be banned. Photos of people kissing offend me. Religious posts/pictures/articles offend me, they should not be allowed either.

It could be, and is really a slippery slope. For me, there are too many other things in the world to be concerned with like lack of human needs being met in society. I'd rather spend my effort doing something about that, then getting some pictures removed.
