"They call themselves lactivists and say Facebook's practices are discriminatory."

Well. It's a darn good thing they don't need nor want my support.

You know, when I posted those, er, candid shots of myself a while back, calling myself a "jacktivist" didn't seem to help at all.

Note to whiners:

When playing in someone else's sandbox, they can do whatever the fuck they want with the service they own.

I hope the bloom is off the rose. I'm getting tired of seeing another cover story every time another generation of 17-year-olds discover social networking.

But surely the NEXT social networking site the 17-year-olds discover will be pure and true and will NEVER do something like dictate their own terms of service!

The "Lactivists" should just start their own social-networking site. "BoobJournal.com" has the right ring to it.

14 or so years from now:

"Hey Mom, I was talking to Dad and he said something about you being a hardcore Internet activist when I was a baby."
"Hm? Oh...oh, yes."
"Really, Mom? Oh wow. Wow."
"Well, there was just this one issue I felt really, really strongly about and I...I guess I couldn't keep quiet."
"Oh, yeah. That's great, Mom. Those were really intense times too, weren't they? Was it gay rights? That stupid 'No Child Left Behind' thing? Oh! The Iraq War? That was still going on then, right?"
"Uh...no, no."
"Really? What was it?"
"It was over my right to post images of me breastfeeding you on this social networking site I used to go to all the time. I mean, it was...was outrageous that they...hm...wouldn't let me and other moms do that...you know..."
"......Okay."

In fairness, despite having a stupid name, they've got a perfectly good point. Arguing that images of breastfeeding are "obscene" is pretty fucking retarded, after all.

What I don't understand about the whole kerfuffle is why you'd *want* to post pictures of yourself breastfeeding. Sexy pixx, sure, but breastfeeding =/= sexy, at least in most peoples' books.

Why would you want to post any non-sexy photo, then? To me, a photo of a woman breastfeeding is no different from any other photo of a mother bonding with her baby. Breastfeeding's important to a lot of women, as we have all seen, sometimes to our cost, in breastfeeding vs. formula debates. :) But really, setting aside all the hokey rhetoric and excessive drama of the "lactivist" community, I think what Facebook is doing and what LJ has done is crummy. I get that they get to ban whatever they want to, but I do find it offensive that they think this worth banning.

Well, tongue-in-cheekness aside (which was how it was intended, though it might not have come across that way) I agree that it's offensive that they're banning pictures like that. It definitely carries the message that breastfeeding is distasteful, and while I don't think that's what Facebook is trying to say with this action, they're on shaky ground. It's pretty indicative of the fact that no one knows how to deal with these types of issues - all too often it seems like a broad, across-the-board statement targets groups that don't deserve it, and the forum of the internet means it gets blown up into an issue that wouldn't have happened anywhere else.

Anyway. I was kidding, and I agree. So yay. Congrats on the wedding, btw.

Ah... ha. Kidding, you say? What is this thing you call kidding?

I = lose. But thank you for the congrats! :)

Ah no, this is like the GREAT BOOB NAZIS THING OF '06. Let me remind you, Leonard, boobies are real, Harry Potter characters being fisted by elves is fantasy.

I hate Myspace. I fucking hate that ugly, blinking, noisy, buggy piece of shit. Most of the time the login screen doesn't even work. I hope it implodes.

I am all for public breastfeeding, but the fact is that when you post pictures online of naked female breasts in any state, most people in our backward, stupid Western culture automatically think "sex sex porn tits sex" and that will probably never, ever change.
