Facebook has removed several photos of women breastfeeding and has warned users they would be removed from Facebook if they attempted to repost the photos.

Um.... I once scrolled down a friend's superwall to find a gaping moonie. Now, not much shocks me, but coming out of the blue like that it rather put me off my beer. So gaping moonies are ok, but breastfeeding isn't.....?!

Although maybe she can do what she wants with her wall as it's friends only. But still .... what?!?!

Ironically enough, when you look on some of the American television cable programs for the younger generations, outward "suggestions" are immistakably present. 

This seems to be North America in a nutshell. I remember discussing this in my Women's Studies class and that while we have such suggestive media, the actual -people- are not allowed to show any skin or else its scandelous. Or at least this is the feeling that I get. I've talked about breastfeeding it public with a few of my guy friends and one said he thought it was disgusting or at least inappropriate because to him boob = sex and its weird if there is a kid attached. I don't really understand, but. *shrugs*

(And maybe that's (topless beaches) why we never went near any beaches while we were in France on my school Europe trip.  Tongue Cheesy)

Facebook is like a lot of websites that will act on something (that is not illegal) only when people raise enough fuss about it.
