June 3rd - Boob Sunday - Breastfeeding Photos

I saw this photo come across my facebook feed and stopped to read it and then share... but Facebook informed me I could not share the image. I am not sure if it was a "blip" or their attempt to prevent sharing of "breastfeeding" photos or not, but here's my attempt to raise awareness on the fact that breastfeeding is normal. We shouldn't have to worry about who is saying what.

If you are so inclined, please share a photo of you (or even some art if you don't have one) of breastfeeding on June 3rd, 2012.

We know that there's a good chance that are photos will be removed AND our accounts on facebook could be suspended. Facebook's policy on "nudity" needs to be redefined so that we can show breastfeeding photos online. Breastfeeding is important. We need awareness. It would be nice if we didn't have to take action like this, but since we still get "ew" comments or our babies are told to eat in bathrooms, we need to ask for these rights.

Please consider signing this petition to Mark Zuckerberg's wife, Priscilla Chan, MD. Afterall, if the CEO of this large company is married to a pediatrician, she should at least know that 1) breastfeeding is important, 2) it is normal and 3) she needs to tell her husband these things so that he can make change in his organization, including no longer censoring photos of breastfeeding.
