Myspace is at it again

Breastfeeding in public is legal in all 50 states, and therefore exempt from public indecency and nudity laws.

Why then does Myspace think that images of breastfeeding is pornographic? And why are they censoring photos of mothers nursing their infants and toddlers?

What about images of birthing? Especially in light of the multitude of content on Myspace depicting nudity and videos depicting the act of sex?

My baby was born early 2007 and the first roundof Breastfeeding censorship by Myspace was big news at that time. I'm surprised that they are back at it again. An online petition was circulated. Currently there are over 10,000 signatures. And according to Birth Without Boundaries, the ACLU is now on board.

So here I am, recirculating the petition and getting it going around again. Myspace needs to listen to mothers that giving babies the best nurtrition available in the world and the educational videos and images of birth are not indecent.
