Facebook Under Fire for Breastfeeding Policy


1 comment

You gotta love a headline like that. According to the Hayward Daily News, Facebook's policy of deleting photographs of breastfeeding mothers has aroused an army of angry areola owners. A group of women, whose pictures of themselves breastfeeding have been struck from the social networking site, have formed a new protest group dubbed the Mothers International Lactation Campaign. (They like the acronym, MILC, but we like the "international" element to it. Here's hoping some Bengali breastfeeders sign on!) MILC plans to throw a "nurse-in" outside the company's Palo Alto headquarters on December 27. Will anyone post pics of the demo on their Facebook page?
