Is Facebook discriminating against breastfeeding images?

06 May

Paul Cezanne, “Hortense Breast Feeding Paul”, 1872,

Breastfeeding moms and their supporters have been hearing empty apologies from Facebook for months, for a problem that dates back years. We have reuploaded photos and shared them, only to have them removed again, and again. We are still being harassed, bullied, intimated, and our accounts are being suspended.

Cherie Raymond, suspended now for 30 days for sharing Cézanne’s 1872 painting of his son being breastfeed, was also suspended for 30 days in February for sharing our media notice with a photo Facebook encouraged Emma Kwasnica to reupload after you apologized for its removal.

Empty apologies do not make good public policy.
