My Photo Shared on Huffington Post, marking the change of Facebook’s breastfeeding photo policy

Seeing breastfeeding is important, as is being able to share those images without fear of scorn or deletion. Facebook has finally updated their policy regarding breastfeeding images. They now match most state laws that specifically allow nipple exposure during breastfeeding. Exposure during breastfeeding doesn’t constitute indecent exposure. Why is this important? Basically, Facebook is slowly but surely realizing that women, or at least breastfeeding mothers at this time, are allowed to live in their own skin and share images of themselves topless (and breastfeeding) without being deleted for nudity.

My breastfeeding photo was shared by Soraya Chemaly on The Huffington Post yesterday when she announced the policy change.

I was also quoted in Monica Beyer’s article on She Knows about Facebook’s censorship of the Badass Breastfeeder after this new change was in effect.

It’s time to test Facebook’s new breastfeeding policy. Here’s my message to Facebook.

Facebook: You say you allow breastfeeding mothers to share their photos without cropping out their nipples?

Prove it.

We are proud to nourish our babies with our breasts and we will not be shamed for it. We will share our special/difficult/funny/priceless breastfeeding moments with our friends, families, and community and we will not to told to keep them to ourselves. Enough with the shaming of women. We are mothers and we are strong. We are equal.

I’m going to post this photo today with these words and see how long it’s allowed to stay up. Meanwhile, men all over Facebook are allowed to post topless photos of themselves with no baby clause. Anyone who wants to be rude about my body is welcome to read this poignant Guardian article about the problem with attacking breastfeeding mothers online.

Although I am certain more mothers will be flagged and photos will be deleted over the coming months, I feel liberated to have this barrier lifted on breastfeeding moms after years of tireless work by so many people. I am happy to help the cause in my own way. ‪#‎freethenipple‬

How do you feel about this policy change on Facebook? Will you share your own breastfeeding photos without shame?

**Update 6/10/2014 9:33PM**

A reader shared this screen shot with me. If you read it, it says that my photo was reported for containing nudity or pornography but it was reviewed and found that it does not violate community standards. Facebook’s new policy is working! At least for my photo. What a wonderful step for breastfeeding mothers and all women! I have already heard of other ladies who have had their photos, far less revealing than mine, being removed today. I hope they are able to appeal their removals because when one mother is shamed, we all are.

As for my personal thoughts on the public’s reaction to my photo, I am amazed by the power of social media. In a mere 6 hours my photo has reached nearly 300k people. It has been liked 5,847 times, shared 1,747 times, and I’d like to think at least half of the 1,739 comments on my photo are supportive. And hey, even if they are not, I know that without a doubt that I am helping women all over the world. I have received so many positive messages in my inbox today from mothers, each telling me how I’ve helped them. And it’s not just today. I didn’t just show up on the scene this morning and throw this photo out there, no. I’ve been blogging about breastfeeding news, Facebook censorship, and NIP (nursing in public) harassment incidents and my journey through motherhood here on this page for two and a half years. I’ve worked hard to create positive breastfeeding posters to encourage breastfeeding mothers. I have helped organize nurse-ins with other major breastfeeding activists and have assisted mothers after they’ve been harassed for breastfeeding in public find out who to speak to. I have enjoyed sharing my breastfeeding photos, helping normalize breastfeeding for the new generation of mothers, and reminding those that are no longer nursing how sweet their time was with their young children. I know that my children are proud to see their photos in magazines as well. I have saved copies of each publication for them so they can have them when they are older and starting their own families.

Each little thing I do helps give other mothers the confidence to nurse in public, to stand up against a family member that isn’t being supportive, to breastfeed through a pregnancy and tandem feed, to keep going through a rough patch. At the very least, seeing my breastfeeding photos shows everyone that there are women out there breastfeeding, that it is normal and they can do it too.

We don’t see breastfeeding mothers out and about nursing their children often enough and when we do, sometimes we’re shy and can’t bring ourselves to say hello or give a thumbs up. But just know if I ever see you in person, I am thinking awesome things about you.

Breastfeed with pride, mamas!

**2nd Update 6.10.2014 11:07pm**

My photo seems to have gone away without warning sometime right before 11pm tonight. This is what I see this now:

Let’s see what I can do about this. Until I get that deleted photo back up, if it’s even possible, I will just reshare the photo again. I have not received any messages from Facebook warning me it was going to be taken down, it just disappeared.

This was my last screen shot of the activity on the photo just past 10PM:

[Screen shot shared on Facebook 10:25am 6.11.2014]

Look how many people supported and shared this photo. It was really wonderful.

Now that it was taken down, I am not sure how to go about getting a hold of anyone. Clicking around, I found a section to submit a question. So I just typed this question up and it doesn’t look like anyone is actually going to see it on Facebook:

So then I tried another option. I reported a problem. But then when I was done it said it wasn’t going to be reviewed. This was my message, as seen in the Support Dashboard:

**3rd Update 6.11.2014 @ 9:31am**

When I woke up this morning, I was logged out of Facebook on my phone and computer. This never happens. Actually, it only happens when FB wants me to log back in and immediately tell me bad news. So I logged back in and sure enough, FB told me a photo on my Paa.la page was reported for nudity and doesn’t meet community guidelines. They showed the photo of it to me – It was a photo of my daughter holding my infant son, but only his little boy nipples could be seen so I don’t know why it was taken down. I thought boy nipples were okay but I guess FB is cracking down on adorable photos of babies. Anyway, these are my screen shots:

Oh wait, I guess you can see my daughter’s nipple. Maybe that was it. Anyway, the point is, I was not given warnings like this for my breastfeeding photos. After seeing these messages, I went on to my Paa.la page to check things out. I saw that my breastfeeding repost from late last night was taken down without warning/notice and the original post is still gone.

I am in the middle of trying to figure out why Facebook has removed my breastfeeding image twice now in the last 24 hours without warning, when screen shots last night confirmed that it wasn’t taken down for nudity. They gave me a proper explanation for another photo that was taken down but nothing for my breastfeeding photos. I find this unfair. The people who have been coming on to my page to condemn me think they’ve won. Some distasteful woman proudly exclaimed something about me being a trashy cunt, and her being glad she got my photo down. Was it her? I don’t know. Was it a glitch twice? Unlikely. These people who cannot accept our human bodies, babies breastfeeding on their mother’s chests, think they have won, that Facebook sided with them. I will not stand for it.

**4th Update 6.11.2014 @ 11:11am**

I am hearing from a couple of sources that my photo that was taken down twice might have just been done by bots, not people. We’ll see what I hear next, if I can get these photos back. I have now joined twitter so feel free to follow me on there as I work through this. https://twitter.com/paalasecor

My first tweet:

**5th Update 6.11.2014 @ 1:45pm**

I’m being told FB is working on the “errors” that keep taking down my photos. Until they’re back up, I’m reposting. Here’s a new photo so the photo bots don’t take it down so quickly.

[Facebook | Twitter]

***5th Update 6.12.2014 12:01am**

My Facebook page was just unpublished a few minutes ago for containing nudity, though I’m not sure what they’re considering nudity. My personal breastfeeding photos met the guidelines. Perhaps it was a breastfeeding photo in the comments under one of my many posts lately that other ladies posted that got my page flagged. I just don’t know.

Anyway, here was the screen shot of what I just saw.

We’ll see what happens with my appeal. Do you see that last little line about being deleted permanently if my appeal is denied?!

**6th Update 6.12.2014 @ 6:29am**

So! Quick recap. My page was unpublished last night at 12am, and I was threatened with complete page deletion. I was pissed. I went to bed at 2am, still pissed. By 4am, I noticed it was back up when I woke up for a feed. Yay! By 6am, I noticed an apology in my inbox – see screen shot – and thought, “Great! Maybe I’ll stop being harassed and having my shit taken down and being attacked by trolls now.”

But then when I hopped on the computer to share the news, FB had me log in again (which only happens when they have bad news for me) to tell me my 3rd repost of my original breastfeeding photo above is considered nudity.

But wasn’t it just 24 hours ago that it was deemed okay? And they apologized today for taking it down? And they just put back up, just as it was – See online here. And my 2nd repost was reinstated as well. Just not my third. Follow your own rules, Facebook. #FreeTheNipple

Apology email:

[Facebook's apology for removing breastfeeding photo.]

My original post was reinstated. Screen shot:

[Facebook]

My thoughts on all this fuss and back and forth?

I don’t even know what to say about all of it. It’s very stressful to think years of hard work is going to be deleted all of a sudden because Facebook can’t get everyone to follow their own policy change and are letting bullies win. But now that it’s back, I’m feeling much better. Is it the last take down, no, because my 3rd repost of it was just taken down this morning. But my 1st and 2nd shares of it are reinstated with an apology. It’s almost comical.

**6th Update 6.13.2014 @8:29am**

I was loggged out of Facebook again this morning so I knew something was going to be flagged for removal again. This is what I was shown: A photo of myself and my sleeping children had been reported and removed for nudity. Really. REALLY. What if these had be boys instead of girls?

Okay, fine I thought. I’ll give you this one, Facebook. You can take down my children, even though this isn’t nudity or in any way obscene. You’re an asshole but sure. Whatever. Then I clicked continue and saw this:

So this warning came up yesterday. I reviewed all the photos on my timeline and selected two of my children where you could see some skin (but they were not nudity in my opinion, no nipples or anything) and removed them myself. Then Facebook let me go about my business without any problems. However, this morning they prompted me to review and delete more photos. I saw nothing to delete so I clicked continue. Then I saw this:

Great. Grand. Wonderful. Then I was allowed to continue on to my account. I tried to like a friend’s posting of their daughter having fun at a farm and saw this:

So that’s it for my update really. I’m blocked from liking or commenting on anything for a day. Why? What was in my timeline that was nudity? Everyone had clothes on. There was a carton of eggs where you could see the eggs. Did someone think those were breasts?? I’ve see that happen before – people getting banned for eggs. It’s madness. Who knows. I’m pretty upset about it though. I cannot manage my own personal page or Paa.la page because trolls were hunting around and reporting things, whatever they feel like. It’s BS.

So I sent them a message telling them they blocked me in error. We’ll see if they fix their block.

**Update 6.18.2014 10:07am**

My block above went away after 24 hours. But now, Wednesday morning, I received a notice that my page was unpublished. There was warning or explanation to accompany it. See my screen shot – the top note is all I can see. There were no other notes or comments from Facebook about it. Facebook still has some work to do.

What can I do about it? I sent a “feedback about pages” message to FB about it using their form. See screen shot.

It says they do not respond to every report. Great. Then I received this note after pressing submit. It says I should receive an email.

Okay, an email would be nice. Then when I tried to share the news on my FB vs Breastfeeding Alliance page and tag Paa.la, I received this pop up from Facebook.

So, that’s where I am right now. My page isn’t viewable by anyone except for me and the trolls think they’ve won. Again.

**Update 6.18.2014 11:24am**

I logged into my second Facebook account to see if I’d received any notices on that account and yes, I did. This is what I saw when I logged in – a note saying my photo (on my personal account) was reported but left up because it doesn’t violate standards.

This was the photo:

This photo was featured in international parenting magazines. I should hope Facebook agrees that it doesn’t violate community standards.

And a second notice that my page was reported and to remove content. Nothing about what the offensive content was though.

Then it took to my page where it still said “unpublished” at the top.

I heard from a reader this morning, Brandy from Latch the Babes, who reported my photo to see if Facebook would stick by their new policy a while back. She said she was notified a while back that it wasn’t nudity and Facebook was leaving it up. Well, this morning she got a notice from Facebook saying they reviewed my photo a 2nd time and they’ve taken it down. She sent me photos of what she saw this morning:

She clicked on the notification from Facebook and saw this:

So my photo was removed for nudity even though it is acceptable and meets the community standards. What about all of those other notices up there next to mine? Brandy said she reported many other photos for over the top blood and gore and they were all left up. Mine, a photo of a breastfeeding mother and child, bonding skin to skin, removed.

This is not right.

**Update 6.18.2014 @ 3:10pm**

My page is back up. I received an email and Facebook notice saying they reviewed my appeal and decided to reinstate me. That’s good news.

These are the messages I saw:

Facebook -

Gmail -

And Brandy sent me a screen shot of what she saw after I came back up, that my photo was restored.

Will this be the last time I have to deal with defending myself against trolls trying to take me down? Unlikely. But I will keep coming back. Mothers will not be bullied. We are allowed to share our moments without shame. I will keep on fighting to keep my page up, to share what I feel is important, to be a part of the global community, to help mothers across the world.

**Update 6.20.2014 @ 10:30PM**

My page was unpublished about 16 hours ago and brought back up after I submitted an appeal. Tonight, a bit over an hour ago, it was taken down again without warning or reason. I’m waiting for it to come back up.

Screen shot:

**Update 6.25.2014 @ 11:45PM**

My Facebook page was blacked out, unpublished for 5 whole days. I received this notice in my email and my page was published again, allowed to be public. No other explanations were given. No apology. Nothing.

[My latest email from Facebook, my page was published again after a 5 day banishment.]

I feel like I should have written a blog post while I was feeling all mad and lonely, kicked out of Facebook without my support, my friends. I was sick though, still am actually, and have hardly cracked open my laptop for 5 days. I got a really sudden, severe case of vertigo that is just now easing up. Has anyone else gotten that postpartum? Or did I just do something funny to mess up my ears or something.

All I know is that I’ve been stuck in bed most days and have not been able to share, laugh, and cry with you and I’ve felt lonely. It’s not right. There is only so much my hubby can listen to during his few awake hours before going to work all day or sleeping and I have no parents to vent to either. I am an orphan. And Facebook took away my online community. You can’t call your mama friends at 2am during a night nursing session to just talk. That’s what this page is for.

Anyway, my babies are all sleeping now and I’m happy to be back.

Want to share your story?

Use the hashtag #facebookSHU if you’ve been blacked out, blocked, deleted, unpublished, or otherwise isolated from your online community for being a woman.

My offense? None. All I did was follow Facebook’s new policy – allowing nipple exposure during breastfeeding. It brought trolls on here that started flagging and reporting everything in sight to try to take me down.

Stop siding with bullies, Facebook. Women will not be censored for merely having female nipples. For feeding our babies. We are equal. Men can be bare chested in public and online without being sexualized. So can we. Women should be “allowed” to bond skin to skin with their babies without being told they’re “looking for attention.” Without censorship.

Most of the media around the world is sharing the news of this Facebook policy update. That’s great, right? It appears most of the articles are taking phrases from this post without asking. I guess that’s fine. Sara Nelson of HuffPo UK did ask though. She shared this story right after HuffPo did with my thoughts and photo.

And here a few good old breastfeeding photos to share. Look how normal breastfeeding used to be, how no one batted an eye and our human skin wasn’t treated with such disdain.

  1. Some of the comments I’ve enjoyed that were shared on the photo that was taken down:

    Nell
    Point is to create tolerance, and break through the old prudist attitudes. This is a beautiful picture. No one bats an eye at a male pair of exposed nipples. Time to put to bed remnants of puritanist dark ages.

    Btw, call me nobody. I breastfed just like this, mostly at home, and on occasion also in public. As in on the beach. The law in NY supports women going topless at public parks & beaches. So there you have it, perfectly appropriate.

    Rochelle
    Way to go Paala, you’re a bloody legend! I’m so glad to have met you, you’ve been such a huge inspiration when it comes to my breastfeeding beliefs and advocacy ever since doing the Applebee’s Nurse-In in 2011. Keep doing what you’re doing, you’re making a difference!

    Also, I’ve breastfed like that. I’m just not skilled enough to take a picture while at the same time.

    Bre Ann
    I can’t tell you how many breast feeding pics I’ve had to get rid of because I couldn’t post it due to my other nipple being out! This is amazing!!

    Rachel R
    Your picture was shared on a private breastfeeding forum and I was surprised by the number of women who claimed to support breastfeeding who said that your picture was not appropriate. There were about 40 comments (some very positive as well) before the administrators took the post down. Your picture is beautiful and it should not be up to anyone to judge what is right and what is wrong. Keep doing your thing and normalizing breastfeeding. (Glad facebook is getting its act together too!)

    Stefanie M
    Maybe some mummys are jealous about your beautiful breasts. Because the truth is that mine doesn’t look any like yours after 5 years breastfeeding!!! You are beautiful

    Tom
    It’s all a matter of personal perception. There’s really nothing obscene, dirty, or shameful about this photo. What makes it any of those thing is what some people choose to think about it. It’s like looking at a painting, some people see it as a work of art and some see the same painting as a piece of junk. If it were a father lying topless with a child on his chest people would see it completely differently. It would be cute, sweet, loving, and a wonderful bonding moment captured between father and child. Because this mother has a little more mass in her chest and her nipples are bigger it’s wildly inappropriate to some. After people finish ranting about how wrong this is, what has it done to hurt them? Not a damn thing! Nobody died, her nipple didn’t reach through the computer or phone screen and slap someone, the world didn’t end so what’s the big deal? It’s her body and her choice. If people find it so offensive they can simply hide it from their feed or scroll past it and get on with their lives. It’s that simple.

  2. I am breastfeeding my baby to sleep right now, skin-to-skin without shame. I thought I’d share these messages, positive notes I’ve been seeing all day in my inbox:

    Heather – “You’re doing beautiful work, there are so many of us behind you. It’s so hard to not take one negative comment & let it outweigh all of the positivity you’re receiving. Stay focused on the positive & keep changing the world. Love to you & yours!”

    Ryan – “Way to go I applaud your bravery. My wife breastfeed all of our kids and it really upset me with the disgusting looks she would get while feeding our children. It’s is a natural and beautiful thing and I admire you for letting the world see a magical moment between mother and child.”

    Mitch – “I just want to say that i appreciate what you are doing. Not because I am a dirty old man who wants to see more boobs, but because I am an artist/photographer who appreciates the beauty of the human form.

    I am moved by the love and tender feelings evoked by your pictures. I wish others would see this way as well. I don’t know why breasts have been criminalised and sexualised.

    As a medically trained person (medical technologist), I also know how important breastfeeding is to infants. It bothers me that people have been arrested for doing it in public.”

    Kailee – “If only we (women) could all walk around topless without being told we’re gross Equal is not always equal.”

    Andrea – “Thanks for all you do and now knocking down double standards! I love the men posting shirtless selfies proving a point! You are brave!! Just wanted to show support, especially while this is blowing up.”

    Samantha – “I know you probably receive an unimaginable amount of messages and notifications a day, but I had to send you one as well I just wanna say thank you for being the beautiful activist that you are. You’re truly making the world a better place. Keep up the hard work, love…you’re absolutely inspiring.”

    Jason – “Beautiful photo, you should be very proud of what you have done, congratulations”

    Dave – “I just wanted to say I fully support you and your picture. It’s a great cause and it’s also just a natural beautiful thing!”

    Hannah – “I love your fearless posts! Haters gonna hate. I’m so glad to see someone standing up for breast feeding without judgement or shame. Nurse on, fellow mama, nurse on.”

    Michelle – “You rock!! Ignore the negativity on your pictures!!! People have nothing better to do than to try and shame others! Love the picture!”

    The negative ones? Gone. I don’t have time for that. Let’s stay positive! Keep on breastfeeding without apology, mamas! And for all the supportive men, you’re awesome.

    Skylark Prentice theres nothing sexual about this picture. i nurse topless frequently and so do many others i know. it strengthens the dyad bond because of the amount of skin to skin and maximises the amount of oxytocin release by both mother and child.

    Rainey Schulz Now I’m all for breastfeeding. I’m tandem nursing my 21 month old and 2 month old and breastfed my other older children also. But doesn’t the Facebook rules state you don’t have to crop out the nipple that the baby is actively nursing on? Maybe I read wrong. I also don’t really understand why you are putting up such a huge fight to post your nipple on a social media site.

    Allie Lynn Betancourt Intimate as in closeness, not using it in a perverse way. In my opinion it’s no different than posting a picture having sex and saying, oh this is beautiful bc it’s how my child was made. It should be about a bond between mom and baby and nurturing your child, not about posting your nipples on Facebook.

    Jacquie Erbskorn-Kass I am frequent topless nurser, as it’s almost impossible not to be with a toddler. I think it’s sad of all the women who are embarrassed or to too ashamed of their bodies to do so and because they are uncomfortable, they feel it necessary to look down and shame other women for embracing their bodies. I will be the first person to say, I’m by no means tiny or perfect, but I’m me and comfortable in my own skin. I proudly nurse in public. I embrace my body and it’s flaws. I embrace the body that gave life to my son and continues to nourish and provide for him. Every scar and stretch mark I wear with pride, as they all came from him. I commend you, paa.la. You inspire me. I only hope other women can find some measure of comfort within themselves and accept people for their choices, as well as embracing that they too can choose what they want to do, without shaming others. Nurse on momma!

    Becky Eskenasy Don’t you think it’s because of the free nipple and not the breast feeding that they’re banning it? I don’t care about nude nipples, I think it’s weird that it’s ok for men but not women… But in reality, if your breast feeding uncovered in public, a baby is covering the nipple most if the time and your other boob is still in a shirt, right? I feel like this is only partly a breastfeeding rights pic and mostly a nipple equality pic, which may alter the way Facebook handles it. I’m all for both issues, I’m just saying I see two different issues, that, although are similar to us, may be treated differently by Facebook. Because there’s a whole can of worms in allowing naked boobs, because of porn, and other ugly portrayals of women’s bodies. Where and how would Facebook draw the line between innocent and natural vs porn. We can clearly see a difference, obviously, but a lot of people aren’t quite on the same wavelength…

    Kendra Shaffer Stone Becky, the point is that Facebook changed their policy to include nipples showing while breastfeeding, yet they still remove breastfeeding photos, nipple or no, stating their policy, which directly contradicts why they are removing it. They either allow it or they don’t. Right now they allow it, but they are still removing the photos. It’s a giant hypocracy and Paala is calling them out on it.

    and it’s unfair to say leave the page then …. I love the page and the support it provides

    Timothy Hewitt Becky is right. Let’s start by saying that’s a beautiful photo. It’s great you are breastfeeding and great that you are sharing. But it’s not OK by facebook standards to have your other uncovered breast in the photo. They OK’d breastfeeding photos, not topless photos.

    Back to what Becky is saying, you are using one defence for another argument. If you want breastfeeding photos to be allowed, post them while following the rules (keep fighting to change the rules if you wish). Let there be breastfeeding photos without controversy surrounding them.

    Are you really supporting this issue, or just trying to get attention?

However I think those people are still missing the point. She IS posting this to get attention. She has fully admitted to that, hasn’t she? She’s not only raising awareness about BF but also the spin off issue of the sexualization of breast. If you’re one of the people who got uncomfortable looking at this picture because her other boob is out than I suggest you try to reflect the reason(s) why it made you react that way. Maybe that insight will lead you to the point she’s trying to make. This picture is packing a powerful one-two punch and it’s freaking awesome!

    Do a little inner reflection. This isn’t supposed to be sexual. Breasts are made for nourishment. WE, our country (and plenty others at some point), decided that women needed to cover up since the men couldn’t control themselves, religion, yada yada. This is what we are trying to change.

In Washington, you can breastfeed anywhere you are allowed to be with your child, with or without a shirt. Yes I said shirt and not cover. It says in whatever manner the mother finds comfortable. Seriously, it’s a boob. It’s not a picture of a sexual act. It’s not pornography. Our bodies aren’t porn. They are bodies. Get over it.

    Scott Alexander It’s funny when you think about it: all the people who are saying that breasts shouldn’t be exposed, that breasts are inappropriate, that kids could see the breasts and be traumatized or whatever… they are unable to explain why or how these claims are true.

    What is the issue? “It’s inappropriate/ obscene/ indecent/ best left in private.” Why? “… … Because…uh…because I cannot comprehend that the human body doesn’t always have to be a sexual thing. Because I think women’s bodies in particular should be mystified and sexually objectified.” Oh, okay. I’m glad you cleared up the fact that you’re the one with the problem, rather than the person whom you’re disrespecting, judging, criticizing, and condemning.

    Seriously! If you can’t logically and rationally explain what’s wrong with women breastfeeding in public, proudly posting breastfeeding photos, or, gasp, going shirtless on a hot day, perhaps you’ll realize that you’re being overly-emotional, brain-washed, and irrational.

    Why are breasts shocking? Half of the people in the world have mammary glands. Breasts are for nourishment; millions and millions of women breastfeed. Did you miss biology class? Did you not realize that breasts are EVERYWHERE? Just sayin’.

    It seems like you’re just trying to prove a point. And not really caring about breastfeeding. I could see if she was BFing twins or something, but she’s not.

However I think those people are still missing the point. She IS posting this to get attention. She has fully admitted to that, hasn’t she? She’s not only raising awareness about BF but also the spin off issue of the sexualization of breast. If you’re one of the people who got uncomfortable looking at this picture because her other boob is out than I suggest you try to reflect the reason(s) why it made you react that way. Maybe that insight will lead you to the point she’s trying to make. This picture is packing a powerful one-two punch and it’s freaking awesome!

    Kathryn Jones The world clearly isn’t ready to see a woman breastfeeding with one breast exposed least of all with the other nipple waving freely at them too it’s not going to be for everyone. Some are raised to be ‘more modest’ whilst completely missing the point that they are the ones sexualising the ‘freely flapping pornographic nipple’ when actually we are seeing it as a breast ready to feed a child nothing more, nothing less. Personally I’d just keep posting my pics back up and don’t feed the trolls with statuses like this. They’ll get bored eventually….

    Bare Reality There are some very negative comments here, as well as aggressive, rude language.

    I think the point is that as soon as you apply rules, like the unlatched nipple mustn’t show, or the photo should feature the baby more than the mother, or the subject or photographer has ‘good’ intentions / ‘bad’ intentions, you are applying your own value judgements.

    So many cultures all over the world do not have a problem with breasts and breastfeeding. That there is a variance shows our judgements are socially contructed, they are not based on ‘natural’ rules of decency and morality.

    Rules mean censorship and control. That means breastfeeding is not normalised and breastfeeding mothers feel uncomfortable. That is bad for breastfeeding rates.

    This photo is as acceptable a photo of breastfeeding as any. (I think it’s nice, lovely baby enjoying breastfeeding, confident mother…but who cares what I think, that’s not the point.) Why should an individual or organisation seek to criticise it or censor it? Why should anyone want to?

    Some people think that women should not breastfeed in public at all. Some people think women should use a blanket to cover if they breastfeed in public. Some people think a blanket is unnecessary but the other breast must be hidden. Wherever you are on that spectrum you applying socially-construced ‘morality’ and value judgements. Breastfeeding should just be normal, and not criticised.

    No justification is needed for why both breasts are out. But maybe it’s how she sleeps in bed? Maybe its hot? Maybe the baby had just moved from one breast to the other? Maybe she’s feeding more than one child? In fact, she is a triandem breastfeeder.

    One other thought…Paala is beautiful and she’s looking straight at the camera. If she was not conventionally attractive, or looking away, would you have had such a strong negative reaction?

    This photograph first appeared in article about Facebook relaxing the rules about breastfeeding images. Very welcome news. Naturally, the article had to use a photo which showed an unlatched breast to make the point.

    Nathaniel N Mary Leal Seriously, so many morons here. Why in the hell does it matter if her breast is showing? WHY? Breasts are primarily for nourishing babies. That is their intended function. Do they also serve a sexual purpose? For some, yes. But so does almost every other body part. If our breasts should be covered, then why not our hands or our mouths? I can tell you those things are a lot more active in most sexual situations than breasts! And why is it okay for a man to show his nipples, but not a woman? Again, WHY? Do most people seriously not question how ridiculous that is?

    Jodi Munson Again, Erin, you keep throwing out multiple reasons why this is wrong. Why the fuck are you so obsessed with our tits?
    Here’s my earlier response to your “concern” that a predator may take these pix…

    I find it incredibly ironic that the woman who has photos of her child in a tiny swimsuit is attempting to shame women for trying to normalize the image of bare breasts and a nursing baby.
    Do you understand the absurdity of your position??
    Do you have ANY clue how many people feel that dressing children in bikinis is inappropriate?
    You also need to understand that predators can be stimulated just as easily by the photos of your child as by a nursing photo, IN FACT, it’s more likely that a pedophile would choose YOUR child’s photo over a nursing image because they are often turned off at the sight of adult bodies. Did you KNOW that?!

    Beck Andrew What I love about your ability to show freedom like this is, that it confirms for me, how deep into shame woman are, I would like to say that this photo was confrontational for me even. On Facebook showing the whole world your naked self, for the purpose of the most vital part of a woman & mothers role, breastfeeding her child. I am a huge advocate of home birth & breast feeding, and while I breastfed most of the time I felt able to simply fed showing full breast… other times not so much… Even other woman, in younger, the same, and older generations looking or even saying out loud its not appropriate. I feel this is a major, deep disconnection which somehow produces that shameful feeling… I have to say, recently I started using Tapping, after finding The Tapping Solution after a few times of hearing of it & never really checking it out, once I did, it was amazing the emotion that came up, and shame was a huge one. Now, you are, like being, this like, breath of fresh air, being fully vulnerable & at the same time showing the courage & strength on behalf of all woman & mothers ! Simply Inspiring ! Much Love & Support, Beck

It’s the way it’s supposed to be actually. Full skin to skin contact. The babe is clearly naked also. It’s meant to make a statement. My daughter is one and for the first few months I felt embarrassed like I had to cover up to make other people feel comfortable. After a year. I very rarely bother covering up (that’s situational depending where we are)

    Antanika Ben Holton I am totally and completely for breast feeding anywhere any time and nudity if you absolutely must. I never use a cover and sometimes it hangs out for a while after even when I’m out. In my 19 months of breast feeding I’ve only breastfed completely topless in bed. It’s not often you would see both breasts out. And while yeah they’re just breasts etc I find that this photo isn’t getting the correct point across. In all my time on Facebook this is the first photo I’ve seen with both breasts exposed and it’s probably not really necessary. So I feel this is asking for a fight where there isn’t need for one.

Especially since (in most states) the law still states that only the breast in use does not count as indecent exposure.

    Meg Bennett As a fellow breastfeeding mother and supporter of NIP, I fully support posting images of a breastfeeding baby, however, I do find it unnecessary to fully expose a breast & nipple purely for the purpose of exposing them. This is exactly what gives publicly breastfeeding mothers accusations of exhibitionism and weirds people out. Fair enough if you were feeding twins and both were occupied…even a bit of nip as some babies unlatch a bit to have a nosy around them, but a full on exposed breast purely to test a policy is asking for it to be removed. x

If you read it, it says that my photo was reported for containing nudity or pornography but it was reviewed and found that it does not violate community standards. Facebook’s new policy is working! At least for my photo. What a wonderful step for breastfeeding mothers and all women! I have already heard of other ladies who have had their photos, far less revealing than mine, being removed today. I hope they are able to appeal their removals because when one mother is shamed, we all are.

    Rachel A Ratcliffe Your picture was shared on a private breastfeeding forum and I was surprised by the number of women who claimed to support breastfeeding who said that your picture was not appropriate. There were about 40 comments (some very positive as well) before the administrators took the post down. Your picture is beautiful and it should not be up to anyone to judge what is right and what is wrong. Keep doing your thing and normalizing breastfeeding. (Glad facebook is getting its act together too!)

    Erin Madden There is absolutely nothing wrong with breast feeding…. But honestly… That is something that should be PRIVATELY done, it’s a bond between you and your child that other people WILL NOT ALWAYS UNDERSTAND, nor care to see. If I was a child and my mother posted a photo of me sucking her nipple, as I grew to become an adult… I would be rather upset about the circumstances. That is not for every bodies eyes. It’s to simple give your child the nutrition they need. And for you to feel the need to post a picture of yourself completely topless more or less shows a lack of self respect. Yes being a mother is a wonderful thing! And it is very doubtful that anybody would ever judge you for breast feeding. But you can’t be upset if somebody judges you for exploiting your body. If I took a picture of myself topless and posted it on Facebook it would be removed for nudity. It should make no difference if you just so happen to have ONE nipple covered by a child’s head. You are still naked, it is still inappropriate. And honestly indecent.

    Dnup Skimo Hooplah Sure breastfeeding is a natural way of life but it shouldnt be photographed to put on a public site of which young kids can get access to….in the end it’s nudity/pornography so I don’t blame them for reporting the pics.
    Although I myself personally don’t mind it… Just thinking of those who are far too young and others who will abuse the pic for what it’s intended for, is all.

What happened to debates and freely expressed opinions without being told to leave or being called an idiot. I see both sides and both points of view as justified, breasts ARE a sexual thing in men’s eyes, they will always be attracted to them. If your a gay man probably not. They are tools for breast feeding and they are SEXY hello. The other point is that a breast feeding picture ISNT sexy but beautiful, even if your other breast is exposed the baby feeding completely wipes that out. Rihanna was just almost naked at whatever awards wasn’t she? THATS over exposure to the max since she’s just flaunting them around.

    Helen McGinn If you sexualise breastfeeding then that’s something you may want to examine a little deeper. For now, use your logical brain and try to see that it’s a natural part of life. If you truly feel angry or disgusted, at least realise that many do not and it is their right to breastfeed, whether in public or to share a photo of it if they wish. Respect that right and move on either by not clicking on the image or even hiding it in your newsfeed. Slating someone for their choices opens you up for the same. I personally think the photo is beautiful

    I reported the pic on my wall informing everyone I know yes I am still breastfeeding and a little about what happened asking anyone with a problem with it to please unfriend straight away.
    Why are these people on here? On a breastfeeding support page? Maybe they need to start a page called ” I support breastfeeding But….. Not if this not if that etc etc… “.

    Meg Bennett I commented on the original photo before it was removed and was one who didn’t agree entirely. I said I saw the beauty in the image, itself, just as I am when I see any body, no matter shape or size in the nude. I suppose I am a bit torn because while I don’t want to appear hypocritical, I didn’t find it necessary for the other breast to be exposed. I fully support breastfeeding and nursing in public (and women’s rights to do so) but I can see why the image may attract the attention for the wrong reasons. Breastfeeding is beautiful, and when I do it or post a photo of myself on FB (which I have done), you can bet the focus is more on the act with my child than anything else to take away from the image. Would I report the photo? No, it’s her right to post whatever she likes and it’s not my place. I’m simply saying I can see where people are coming from that the additional content isn’t necessary. I will continue to defend a woman’s right to breastfeed in private, public and whilst doing it in a handstand on a unicycle. I will defend against those who compare it to toiletng habits or sexual acts. One thing I cannot be accused of is not supporting, so please don’t. I attend any event I can to help “normalise” the act. However, I think the “shock factor” of the photo loses the purpose of what it’s meant to do. I’m not offended, personally.

    Do you understand the absurdity of your position??
    Do you have ANY clue how many people feel that dressing children in bikinis is inappropriate?
    You also need to understand that predators can be stimulated just as easily by the photos of your child as by a nursing photo, IN FACT, it’s more likely that a pedophile would choose YOUR child’s photo over a nursing image because they are often turned off at the sight of adult bodies. Did you KNOW that?!

    Jen Bussey Yeah, because eating and eliminating waste are totally the same thing.

  12. I have gone a million rounds with Facebook over this crap and now, anytime anybody reports ANY of my pictures, they automatically ban me for 30 days and threaten page deletion. I have 30,000 followers and I never know if I’m going to wake up tomorrow with my page just GONE. Even though Facebook has apologized to me a bunch of times and put back my photos, they never “reset” my ban so now it just defaults to a 30 day ban every time with no warning. And there’s no person over there to talk to. I’m afraid you’re going to find yourself on the end of a losing battle with them.

  13. Just a few more comments on this photo:

    Don Nelson I am a little dismayed that so many are so quick to either criticize or to support what seems to me to be the essence of humanness.
    Our society has an obsessive prurient fascination regarding our bodies. It is as if the human body is innately evil and a source of all thing immoral.
    Not only do we criticize other humans when, what is deemed inappropriate parts of the human body are bared in public but there is a certain disdained shown toward those that ‘look.’
    There are certain human functions that have been judge best not done in
    public, such as elimination of human waste. Generally human copulation has been reserved for private settings, though not exclusively.
    What is it about our humanness that is so frightful or threatening that something as natural as a mother feeding her child is castigated as not acceptable for public viewing?

    Don Nelson What is there about being a human being that is embarrassing? In my opinion the embarrassment surfaces when we accept certain social values and judgements as to what is acceptable, normal, and desirable. To be embarrassed at my humanness indicates that humans are an embarrassment. To hate oneself or what one looks like is the worst form of self deprecation. Jealousy is another form of self hatred projected outward to another – which in turn makes it a form hatred directed toward the “other.” As for religion – Calvinism considered human life to be a never ending battle between our human nature and divine will. Humanness was, at its best, the lowest manifestation of life. Self surrender and self negation was the way to achieve divine acceptance and escape the worldly evils of daily life.

    There is no more natural beauty than that of mother and child bonding over a meal. I’ve been to other countries that have less hangups over nudity, but mothers caring for their young? Come on America, Puritanism has been gone a long time. Along with witch hunts.

    Nick Wolfe What are people thinking. We scream at Muslims for making their ladies cover up, then we turn around and abuse our own ladies for using the natural nourishment God provided us with. For years I have worn a shirt when swimming. Not because I think there is anything wrong with being bare chested, but in support of the finer half of our population that has to endure the double standard.

    She’s hot, not because of her exposed nipple, but because she loves her child and isn’t feeding it mercury laden high fructose corn syrup sludge otherwise known as ‘baby formula’. I mean could you possibly give a product a more Orwellian name. The only thing it’s a formula to is autism and auto immune and neurological diseases.

    Jerry Munro Nice, indeed. It’s at the very root of being human.

    Chantel Nicole Jones I will teach my child to see a woman feeding her kid. A lot of the people commenting on this are the EXACT reason why breastfeeding is shamed in public. But it’s completely okay to bottle feed with no problems. If you teach your kid theyre just “boobs” than of course that’s all they’ll see. My child will grow up watching ne feed my child anywhere it’s needed. This is what breasts were made for. And it’s okay for the nude body to be flashed on tv, ads in every store, but GOD FORBID you’re children see it when theyre being used for their natural purpose. Ill be posting breast feeding pictures all I want, once my baby is born. I just don’t see the big deal is all. In other countries, they walk around like this in public. Why is it okay for men to flaunt theirs…but not for women? Theyre the same thing. Womens just have lumps of fat inside…..

    Dale Mallet I dont get it. Would some one get upset because I eat a rump steak in public. In reality im chewing on a cows ass. A baby has a feed and people get upset about that. I am somewhat puzzled.
