I put this little button in my sidebar:
If you click on the button, it takes you to League of Maternal Justice, a site set up by Her Bad Mother and Motherhood Uncensored, to protest Facebook's policy of not allowing photos of women nursing their babies. They do, however, allow pro-anorexia groups and photos as well as pedophile groups. Breastfeeding, however, is verboten.
I'm 100% pro breastfeeding. I'm not a lactivist, I don't think women who use formula are horrible mothers or any of the other stupid things you hear some women say about them. As long as your baby is being fed, and fed properly (ie, formula or breast milk), then I'm not going to get my panties in a bunch. However, I do think, if a woman choses to nurse her child, she should be allowed to do so freely and not be forced into a bathroom. Women shouldn't be stared at, whispered about or asked to leave a location just because they're feeding their child. I don't know any woman who nurses because she's trying to titillate (hur) anyone. She just wants her child to stop hollering, most likely. And unless you're really trying, you're not going to see much anyway.
So, I've deactivated my Facebook account. If anyone would like to do the same, in support, I'd love it. Just post your website on the LMJ site and they'll give you credit. You don't have to be a nursing mother, or even a mother, to join us. Even if you can't live without Facebook, you can still register your disapproval by putting up a button and writing about it.
