Submission + - Facebook under Fire over Breastfeeding Photos ( 4

NewsCloud writes: "Facebook continues to struggle with when to enforce its own terms of service. While the 78,240 group members who want Facebook to shut down the F*** Islam group are still frustrated, those concerned with photos of breastfeeding mothers can rest more easily. The site has recently come under fire for removing pictures of breastfeeding mothers, and banning users on the grounds that they'd uploaded "obscene content" to their profiles. Says Facebook, "Photos containing an exposed breast do violate our Terms and are removed." In response, more than 33,431 concerned Facebook users have created the "Hey, Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene!" group. Apparently, scantily clad college co-eds, fine and dandy."

  • So, men can be (and are) charged as sex offenders for urinating behind a tree, but exposing female breasts in public should be okay just because there's an ankle biter attached to it?
    • The problem isn't the breastfeeding being accepted, the problem is being punished for pissing behind a tree because you think no one can see you.
    • [...] men can be (and are) charged as sex offenders for urinating behind a tree [...]

      It sounds like you live in a crazy police state! Perhaps if you try hard enough, you can help to return your state to the rule of law in time.
