Hey Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene! (Official petition to Facebook)

Welcome and thank you for your support of this group and the normalisation of breastfeeding. Prior to posting on the wall or discussion board, we encourage you to take a moment to read our info section and browse some of our discussion threads to familiarize yourself with the purpose of this group and the incredibly diverse range of opinions and topics that we share and discuss. Debate is welcome, provided it is kept reasonably civil and free from personal attacks against other members.

Due to the size and nature of this protest group, we occasionally attract internet trolls who post inflammatory content on the wall and discussion board and in photo comments. The administrative team makes every effort to deal with activity of this nature daily. In the meantime, reactions of any kind legitimize this attention-seeking behaviour and encourage the trolls to continue posting. Our recommendation to members who are irritated by troll activity is threefold: report any harassment to Facebook, use your profile settings to block repeat offenders, and remove unwanted comments from any photos you have uploaded to the group (only the photo owner can remove comments)

Ignorant remarks are apt to be dealt with swiftly, and vulgarity or abuse will not be tolerated. Admins have the authority and right to delete posts containing hateful content and remove and/or permanently ban members for repeated violations, however, we can not be held responsible or liable in any way for the user generated content of this group. Breastfeeding is not obscene!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Recently, Facebook has started 'pulling a myspace' by not allowing people to post profile pictures of babies nursing. The pictures have been reported as 'obscene' and have been removed- their posters warned not to repost or fear being kicked off of Facebook.

We're wondering: what about a baby breastfeeding is obscene? Especially in comparison to MANY other pictures posted all over Facebook that really are obscene.

Facebook, we expect more from you, and we expect you to realize that nursing moms everywhere have a right to show pictures of their babies eating, just like bottle-fed babies have a right to be seen. In an effort to appease the closed-minded, you are only serving to be detrimental to babies, women, and society.

**Facebook, allow breastfeeding pictures, and stop classifying them as obscene!**

"Hey Facebook, amamantar a un bebé no es obsceno! (petición oficial a Facebook)
Recientemente, Facebook ha censurado fotos de bebes que están siendo amamantados. Las fotografías han sido definidas como obscenas y han sido retiradas bajo la amenaza de que si vuelven a colgarse las usuarias serán expulsadas de Facebook.

Nosotras nos preguntamos qué tiene de obsceno el amamantar a un bebé. Especialmente en comparación con MUCHAS OTRAS fotos que hay en Facebook que si que son realmente obscenas.

Facebook esperamos mucho más de ti y esperamos que comprendas que las madres tienen derecho a amamantar a sus bebes en cualquier lugar así como a enseñar las fotos de sus bebés comiendo, de igual manera que se muestran fotos de bebés que criados con biberón. Tu acción va en detrimento de los bebés, las mujeres y la sociedad.

Facebook, ¡permite todas las fotografías de bebés que están siendo amamantados y deja de definirlas como obscenas!

Récemment, Facebook a commencé à censurer des photos de bébés en train de téter, interdisant la publication de telles images sur les profils.
Ces photos étant qualifiées d'obscènes, elles ont été retirées d’autorité, et les auteurs ont été avertis de l'interdiction de publier à nouveau de telles photos sous peine de bannissement de Facebook.

Nous nous posons la question : en quoi un bébé en train de téter est-il obscène ? Particulièrement en comparaison de ce que l'on peut voir comme photographies sur Facebook, qui elles le sont vraiment.

Facebook, nous attendons mieux de votre part, nous exigeons que vous acceptiez que les mamans qui allaitent ont le droit de montrer les photos de leurs bébés en train de téter, tout comme les bébés nourris au biberon.
Dans le but de satisfaire des personnes étroites d'esprit, vous ne faites que desservir l'intérêt des bébés, des femmes et de la société.

** Facebook, acceptez les photos d'allaitement, et cessez de les considérer comme obscènes ! **

“ Hey facebook, allattare un bambino non è osceno!”

Facebook ha recentemente iniziato a censurare le foto di donne che allattano i propri bambini. Sono definite “ oscene” e vengono rimosse con l'avvertimento di non inviare immagini simili pena la cancellazione del profilo.
Ci chiediamo: Cosa c'è di osceno in una mamma che allatta il suo bambino? In particolare considerando le molte foto pubblicate in Facebook che sono veramente oscene.

Facebook ci aspettiamo di più da te e crediamo che un bambino allattato al seno abbia lo stesso diritto di essere visto quanto un bimbo allattato con il biberon. Mentre vi sforzate di non urtare le menti più ristrette proponete un messaggio dannoso per i bambini, le donne e la società.

“ Facebook, consenti le foto di mamme che allattano e non classificarle oscene!”

Hey, Facebook, Stillen ist nicht obszön!

Vor einiger Zeit hat Facebook Profilfotos verboten, auf denen Babys
gestillt werden. Die Bilder wurden als "obszön" gemeldet und entfernt,
die User aufgefordert, die Bilder nicht wieder reinzustellen, sonst
würden sie von Facebook verbannt.

Wir fragen uns:: Was ist am Stillen anstößig? Vor allem im Vergleich
zu VIELEN anderen Bildern überall auf Facebook, die wirklich anstößig sind.

Facebook, wir erwarten mehr von Dir, und wir erwarten, daß Du kapierst,
daß stillende Mütter überall das Recht haben, Bilder ihrer trinkenden
Babys zu zeigen --- genau wie flaschengefütterte. In Deinem Versuch, es
den Engstirnigen recht zu machen, schadest Du Babys, Frauen und der
Gesellschaft.

**Facebook, lasse Bilder von stillenden Müttern zu und hör auf, sie als
anstößig zu bezeichnen!**
