Eclectic Effervescence: Offense - Breastfeeding is not obscene, facebook

But you know what picture Facebook did remove?

This one. Originally posted on the "Hey Facebook, breastfeeding is NOT obscene" group, with 258,448 members.

Here, where, after three years of infertility and a traumatic and pre-term birth, I finally tandem nursed my babies successfully for the first time. Facebook told me this picture was offensive. And warned me that they will delete my account if I continue to break the rules

Go April and everyone else who created/joined the Facebook group, event and official petition, "Hey Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene! (Official petition to Facebook)".

Group now has 259,644 members cause I joined too. That's a quarter of a million people. But I agree with an earlier comment to the blogger above, America is a funny combination of repression and expression. Sex is ok but not being female.
