I've said it before and I'll say it again: No one wants to see your boobs.
Unfortunately there are still large groups of women who cannot seem to get this fact through their little polyester t-shirts. Once again, Facebook has attracted the ire of a whole bunch of these peeved moms who, for some reason, feel disenfranchised for not being allowed to post pictures of their naked breasts on the social networking site. "It's natural," they say. "This is discrimination."
Oh puh-leez. It is not discrimination to demand that breast feeding photos do not include exposed nipples. And forgive me for pointing out the obvious, but if you can see a fully-exposed breast, that breast is not, in fact, "feeding".
This isn't an issue of Facebook being anti-breast feeding. It's an issue of moms not having the courtesy to cover up while they feed. You know, decency. You remember what that is, right? Not flashing your breasts to unwitting strangers? (Or witting, for that matter. Bonnie's PSA - do not flash your breasts to any strangers. Thank you).
Breast feeding is not indecent, but exposing your breasts to a room full (or, in this case, an internet full) of people who do not want to be confronted with an up-close view of your cup size, is indecent. It's also rude. And rudeness does not lend itself to understanding.
Common courtesy, ladies. It goes a long way.
