…This was created in 2007 for MySpace’s silliness, but seems to apply to Facebook just as easily. Enjoy!
Myspace.coms avatar nudity rules
This is appropriate: (photo with a big breasted woman with stars over her nipples)
letter reads: Dear pornstar, yay you! welcome to myspace.com and enjoy spreading your
love um…avatar around. xox, the censor
This is inappropriate: (photo of mother breastfeeding)
Letter reads: Dear mother, it is obvious that you have not read nor understand our rules in which we clearly star “no nudity of a sexual nature.” your obscene photo has been removed. Sincerely, the censor
Hathor says, “grrrrrr.”
baby thinks, “why don’t YOU have star nipples?”
…In Honor of today’s Facebook Nurse-In, Hey Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene! (Official petition to Facebook) and FB! Stop harassing Emma Kwasnica over her breastfeeding pics and nursing mothers everywhere, I’m posting a comic every hour all day long…comic #3
Images of breastfeeding babies. then a blank screen. Then the screen says: This video has been removed for indecent and inappropriate content. Then the screen says: Watch these other videos with the YouTube seal of approval:

…Today is the Facebook nurse in/protest. I can’t go to any of the protests in person, so I’m doing my part by posting a breastfeeding in public focused comic every hour, all day long…this is from 2007, a similar situation with YouTube…comic #2
Hathor asks, “Mr. YouTube? I’d like to ask you, and FaceBook and MySpace some questions about your policy, the one where you won’t show images of babies eating?
Mr. YouTube: yes?
Hathor: Can kids eat on camera? a six year old?
Mr. YouTube:Well, I don’t know about that.
Hathor:What about formula? Can a baby drink from a bottle on camera? or is it the Breasts? Is it all breasts?
Mr. YouTube: I don’t know, um…I think, no, um Uh…
Hathor: What about tiny breasts? male breasts? Is it because they’re round? Have you got something against circles? Have you considered that you might have ‘issues?” That maybe you need to speak to someone? Get help? Possibly rest?
Mr. YouTube:I’d like to speak to my psych…um er, lawyer, please.

The logic problem that is FaceBook’s Breastfeeding Photo Policy.
man says, “We take ’em down and if you put ’em back we’ll suspend your account…it’s how we roll.
IT’S BECAUSE OF THE NUDITY…
But is this nudity? Or this? Or this?
Is there a square inch nudity standard? do you use a ruler?
IT’S BECAUSE A NIPPLE IS SHOWING…
Like this. So what about this? or this? Or this?
IT’S BECAUSE FACEBOOK HAS TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT COMMUNITY STANDARDS…
Mama says, “yet in most communities it’s perfectly fine to breastfeed where ever you’re already entitled to be.”
Facebook’s logic is illogical….
