But breastfeeding is not natural. However, TSA run body scanners and fluoride rich baby formula is. We need to wake up people and resist this oppressive tyranical system

You would think that people would have a lot more to be concerned with than a bulbous piece of human flesh with a baby getting nourishment from it. The primary reason for breasts is to feed babies. How and when breasts became objects of lust remains a mystery to me.

Stop your bitching. It's people like her that are always testing the limits. She couldn't just put a picture of her and the baby on there like most people would. Yea breastfeeding is natural, so are a lot of other bodily functions I don't care to watch someone else do.

Who in their right mind would want pictures of them selves breast feeding at all, no less on the internet. People continue to amaze me how stupid they can be. And to top it off, lets make a huge media scene because your facebook page was deleted. Is it really news worthy to report such "news".

I breastfed all of my children. It is a deeply personal and intemate experience that no mother should have to miss. Having said that, I never once felt the need to expose my child or myself to voyeurs.

I was wondering if these photos were flagged by friends or does FB browse albums in search of something "naughty"? In either case, I'm appalled.

I nursed my three children 15 to 20 years ago and was always discrete to the point of hiding in the ladie's room; in a stall if there wasn't a chair or bench to be had. It made me feel creepy and sad. But to feed in public - even with a shawl over my shoulder and baby - I would have felt I was "making a statement". I just wanted to feed my kid in the healthiest way possible.

Just more useless displays of narcissism. This is a very long article about nothing of any importance. Great reporting, Banner.

The Facebook policy has nothing to do with keeping people safe. "Keeping people safe" requires that there is some harm that people need to be protected from but the objective evidence is quite the opposite. Facebook is encouraging attitudes known to result in widespread and often very serious harm. There is not a shred of evidence that they a protecting anyone from any harm what so ever. Their policy is nothing but irrational prejudice and the hypocrisy, pretending that it is anything else, is appalling.

Breast feeding is obscene, but the f word isn't? The crap I read on some of those pages is rediculous!

Peeing is natural and beneficial too, but that doesn't mean I want to watch.

There is a huge difference in using the bathroom and eating.

How does not wanting to watch justify a ban? It doesn't. In a free society there must be objective evidence that restrictions on freedom are necessary to protect from harm. It is quite the opposite for breast feeding.
There are objective hygiene reasons for confining excretion to particular places. There are no such reasons for confining breast feeding in a similar way.
