This week's topic deals with breastfeeding. An always controversial topic, it can become even more inflamed when you bring in two aspects—breastfeeding in public and breastfeeding on Seasame Street.
The National Post has a story out of Vancouver, Canada of a breastfeeding mom who is taking on Facebook's nudity policy about the subject. Facebook and the breastfeeding activists are engaged in a battle over the posting of photographs that show mothers feeding their babies. According to the article Facebook has a very strict nudity policy and the latest incident happened Saturday, when the mother was sent a written warning that a photo of her and her two-year-old daughter Chloe, who was breastfeeding at the time, was considered “sexually explicit.”
At the same time, a television station based in Ohio, WNWO, is reporting that a local mom is petitioning for breastfeeding on Sesame Street. It wasn't long ago that Sesame Street openly taught children about breastfeeding, and now nursing mothers want it brought back. The Sesame Street breastfeeding petition was started by mom blogger Lani Michelle. She said she wants "lactivism" to go mainstream.
This can arguably deemed a hot button issue. Whether you are for or against breastfeeding and all that comes with the job, share your opinions. So for those roaming the , if you are shopping at or taking in some fresh air at someplace like how would you feel? Is it acceptable to openly breast feed in public, or post pictures of the act on a public site. Also, to what extent should one be covered if nursing in public.
