Ok, NOW I'm pissed

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! Myspace removes nursing photos because they're sexual?! Have they bothered to look at all of the nude hoochie pics plastered all over that place? Or the teens trying to be sexy and posting sexually provocative (sp?) pictures? I have been inadverntly exposed to images that make me want to scrub my eyeballs on myspace and they take issue with a natural, biological process? Here's some news that some might not know: THE PRIMARY FUNCTION OF BREASTS IS TO FEED CHILDREN, NOT BE SEXUAL OBJECTS. You don't want me to post the words circling around in my mind right now, I'm so freaking mad.

I'm sure there will be a fake apology next week from Myspace, like all of the other places that have been busted for their ignorant, hypocritical and downright illegal actions in the past (i.e. Victoria's Secret, airlines, restaurants, etc.). Blah, blah, blah, they can stuff it.

Here's a c&p from the above link: Considers Breast-Feeding Mom 'Too Sexual'

TACOMA, Wash. -- A Tacoma mother facing a ban from the social networking site has been gaining support for pictures posted of her breast-feeding.

Melissa Rocks said the networking site has removed images from her profile of her nursing her baby because believes the images are “too sexual.”

Rocks, a mother of three, reposted the pictures, and again, they were taken down and the Web site threatened to delete her profile, she said.

“We’ve seen flagrantly sexual images on there that haven’t been removed after reported attempts to get the removed. Yet in one day my wife’s pictures are removed three times,” Rocks' husband said.

According to Rocks, a woman in Delaware has started an online petition to support her, and so far, 2,220 people have signed it.

KIRO 7 Eyewitness News contacted, but they had no comment.
Here's a link to the online petition.

Damn MySpace! I signed the petition the minute it came out. We are all doing a 'virtual nurse-in' but they are still deleting our pictures.
