Facebook “boobs” again!

Facebook takes its overarching responsibility to protect its users from the uncovered human female nipple very very very seriously

Squads of vigilant non-bot human admins scour the pages, gimlet-eyed, fingers ever-paused over the database delete button, ever alert to the glow of an areola or the actual wink of a nipple itself. Female nipples that is.

Zuckerberg's brain

So it was no surprise to read at Yahoo News just after we published a post detailing vile Facebook-based defamation of an anti-racist activist, how Facebook was responding to an activist group of breast-feeding mums and their babies.

Boob out 1

Anyone who runs an activist group on Facebook and who has attempted to get them to act on legitimate complaints will be very familiar with the stone-walling experienced by the activist mothers detailed below.

Boob out 2

We can imagine what happened to the letters of protest once building management got their hands on them. We wonder why Facebook’s Australian reps were so afraid of. That they’d be asked to change nappies?

One of our own fans expressed it so well:

Double standards really. Blatant racism, hate speeches and pages are ok, as well as young women posing semi nude in front of mirrors in their bedroom or bathroom BUT a baby having a feed deemed explicit?! The world has gone MAD!!!!

So for future reference for those women and for others aggrieved by Facebook’s poor management of legitimate complaints and poor management of its site administration we are going to publish as much detail as we can about how to contact your not-so-friendly Australian Facebook rep.

Facebook’s Australian representative is Stuart Wragg

He is CEO of a spin doctor PR company called N2N Communications

  1. One important factor that is being ignored, is that IF this content really is damaging for kids, if it really is sexually explicit or pornographic, shouldn’t Facebook do a lot more than deleting the images and accounts? Surely they should be contacting the police?

    It’s clearly a rubbish defense.

  2. You must be running short on stories to pin me! LOL. I stand by what I’ve said and would say it on a soap box, microphone and all! I have seen women breastfeeding in public and they have no qualms at all in exposing themselves, some women don’t exercise any discretion whatsoever and bare themselves for all to see. What’s wrong with mothers extracting their milk, bottling it and feeding it to their baby if they happen to be out? there’s just no need to expose themselves! My sister is currently breastfeeding and so is my sister in law, they both prefer to bottle feed their babies when out in public. If they can do so can others. What has this world come to? doesn’t anyone have any morals any more? Gone are the days when all women had self respect and acted like ladies. Women of yesteryear managed to raise their babies without exposure so what’s the problem with women of today doing the same? I find it humorous that you consider yourselves to be anti-discriminatory and yet you do not allow freedom of speech and you crucify anyone and everyone who does not share your opinion. You are downright pathetic as you are the most vehemently critical and discriminatory group of people I have ever had the displeasure of “communicating” with.

    • So, let’s get this straight:

      Because your sister and sister-in-law bottle their own breast milk, to feed their babies later, all women must do so (Even though babies prefer warm milk, and darn it, we can’t all get to a microwave in time, can we?)? And why? Because using a breast for its natural function is somehow lowering a woman’s self-respect?

      Lauren, look at the words you’re using. It’s called “self-respect”-SELF. You don’t get to set someone else’s self-respect. Ask the women who breat feed in public if they have self respect as they perform the most natural act in the world why don’t you?

      If you don’t like women breast feeding in public, you are entitled and encouraged to look away. It’s a pretty lazy and pretty stupid person who would rather penalise all women rather than slightly turn their head.

      • Actually it’s incredibly lazy for a woman who cannot be bothered to ensure that her baby is fed without having to do so publicly…..why not walk a few steps to a restroom? or….as I said once before, extract some milk, bottle it and take it with you, there are means in keeping it warm btw, lol. Who’s the lazy one now? so much easier to simply pop your tits out wherever you are instead of making a modicum of effort, it’s too much like hard work aint it? lol

        • That is my real photo, do I look like a man to you? Will this comment stay in the spam bin? mmmmm I wonder pmsl.

        • The little orange dude in the gravatar? Well it’s cute but I can see why you have problems.

          Your comments will remain in the spam bin once we grow tired of you. That moment is fast approaching.

        • “it’s incredibly lazy for a woman who cannot be bothered to ensure that her baby is fed without having to do so publicly”

          So now mothers are porn stars, rude, selfish, and lazy….whereas you are not being rude and selfish by calling them so. You really hate women don’t you?

          “…..why not walk a few steps to a restroom?”

          Yeah, why not make some of the child’s earliest memories of being fed be equated to expelling waste? That’s not going to damage their psyche in any way!
          Come on, are you comparing breast feeding, to defecating and urinating?

          ” or….as I said once before, extract some milk, bottle it and take it with you,”

          As other posters have asked….what if you run out? What if you can’t bottle your milk, as many women can’t?
          And as I have asked before, why should women be inconvenienced, so you don’t have to move your children’s heads?

          ” there are means in keeping it warm ”

          How? You’re in a park-are you going to use your radiator? You’re at the beach-hold it under the sun? You’re at a shopping centre, run from place to place, hoping some place has a microwave and is willing to let you use it?

          “so much easier to simply pop your tits out wherever you are instead of making a modicum of effort, it’s too much like hard work aint it? lol”

          Whereas telling your children to turn their heads is apparently agony to do!

          Tell me Lauren, how is telling your imaginary children to not look at the breast feeding mother harder than the acts you just described?

    • Get stuffed Lauren.

      Boobs are for feeding babies. Breastfeeding is natural and healthy. It is also easier and quicker than expressing and feeding later. They belong to the woman who owns them, and she can use them for their natural purpose whenever she wants, because doing so hurts no-one.

      I have never seen a woman do it with her breast overtly visible. Wouldn’t care if she did, unless she was being really vulgar about it.

      Re Scotty and his crusades, if a Muslim had a go at my partner for discreetly breastfeeding somewhere off to the side in public I would tell him to get stuffed like anyone else.

      • Boobs are for feeding babies….no doubt, they’re also a sexual part of a woman’s anatomy and should not be exposed in a public place. They may belong to the woman that owns them but that doesn’t justify parading them in a public place; if I had kids I would not be happy for them to be seeing a woman flashing her tits for whatever reason. You say you’ve never seen a woman breastfeeding with breasts overtly visible….well I have on more than one occasion and although perfectly natural….flashing one’s tits in public is rude and unecessary and the knowledge that you may offend some and still not care goes to show that you are incredibly selfish and disrespectful. Has it not dawned on you that some men do find it arousing however wrong this may be? the mere thought of that makes me want to cover up! No class at all. Once again….women coped perfectly well in days gone by…..so what’s the issue?

        • I don’t get a hard-on. I am a woman and not a lesbian either. You know that we do live in a sick world hence there are men that get turned on by seeing women breastfeed their public, the knowledge of that should be enough for women to cover up, that thought makes me feel incredibly uneasy as a woman.

        • I don’t get a hard-on.

          Of course not you’re a no-balls bigot.

          I am a woman and not a lesbian either

          No you’re not.

          …men that get turned on by seeing women breastfeed their public

          Then they need to seek help for their problem.

        • So some men get turned on by breastfeeding, therefore all women should cover up.

          Lauren, some men get turned on by sneezing-should women be banned from sneezing in public?
          Lauren, some men get turned on by exposed toes-should open toed shoes be banned?
          Lauren, some men get turned on by women….should all women be banned in public?

          Why do you always want to punish women for problems you have with men? First it was the burqa, not it is breastfeeding-you’ve said the problem you have are men, so why do you condemn the women to be punished?

        • You know “Lauren” you are beginning to sound very much like those men who when asked why they have raped a woman point to the woman and say it was because she was dressed provocatively and they couldn’t help themselves.

          So am I correct in assuming that you think it is a woman’s fault that some men cannot control themselves?

        • “no doubt, they’re also a sexual part of a woman’s anatomy ”

          Why are they sexual? Why is the female nipple sexual and repressed, but the male nipple not?

          “They may belong to the woman that owns them but that doesn’t justify parading them in a public place;”

          Breastfeeding your child is not parading-let’s not be silly!

          ” if I had kids I would not be happy for them to be seeing a woman flashing her tits for whatever reason.”

          Then turn their heads. You are telling women they should be made to feel ashamed, made to feel uncomfortable in many situations, and made to be inconvenieced, so your imaginary children don’t have to turn their heads.

          “flashing one’s tits in public is rude and unecessary and the knowledge that you may offend some and still not care goes to show that you are incredibly selfish and disrespectful. ”

          So exposing yourself, knowing someone is going to be offended, is rude and shows selfishness. However comparing a woman who breastfeeds to a porn star, is apparently not rude, offensive, or selfish, right?

          Again, you are asking women to be inconvenienced so that you don’t have to turn your head, right?

          “Has it not dawned on you that some men do find it arousing however wrong this may be?”

          And that’s the women’s fault? Shouldn’t it be men blamed for being aroused by breasts? Hey-isn’t this exactly want you condemn Muslims for believing-that women should have to cover up so as to not arouse men? But it’s okay when you believe it right?

          You know, some men get turned on by exposed toes, or women sneezing, don’t you? Should we ban them too! Also men get aroused by cleavage, or a pretty face just as much, if not more so, than lactating mothers….we better ban that. Oh wait, now we’ve got burqas. But presumably you’re okay with it now that they aren’t Muslim burwas.

          ” the mere thought of that makes me want to cover up! ”

          Good, do so. No one is stopping you, or imposing their beliefs on your body. Why are you imposing your beliefs on them?

          “Once again….women coped perfectly well in days gone by…..

          Well, evidently they didn’t. Women would be stuck at home, as you can’t really breast feed in private and have a job. Women couldn’t bottle their milk in some situations (See below posting for a woman who couldn’t do it described much better they I could).

          So public breast feeding does improve on what was before. But I’m sure that doesn’t matter to you, because apparently it’s more important to inconvenience mothers and children than it is to turn your imaginary chuildren’s heads.

    • I know loads of women who breastfeed or have breastfed in the past. Not one of them “exposed” themselves while breastfeeding in public. They do it discretely and most use a towel or piece of fabric to cover the baby and themselves.
      It’s very sad that your sister and sister in law are made to feel so ashamed of feeding their baby that they need to express into a bottle before they go out. What happens if they’re out for longer than expected run out or the bottle leaks? Baby goes hungry so strangers aren’t offended?

  3. Having just read your other postings I pmsl at your hypocrisy. You go all out to defend muslims…….I wonder what muslims would have to say about women breastfeeding in public, huh? They wear a burqini at the beach, covered from head to toe, most wear a head veil and others wear the burqa. Why don’t you question the muslims how they feel and once your question is answered…..would you crucify them for having an opinion? hypocrites is all you are.

    • People can choose how and where to feed their baby.

      Of course you lot are all about control and having everyone think and look the same as you do.

      Why are you so obsessed with Muslims…oh wait…you’re a bigot.

      Last post here.

      • You can’t make up your own mind pmsl. You talk about “bigots” being controlling whilst defending an ideology that is all about control in every facet ! Hypocrisy reeks around here.

        • You defend persecuted minorities not the religion they follow ???? you have just contradicted yourself big time. Those very “minorities” follow an ideology that contravenes our own culture, islam does not accept western civilisation, duh. You cannot defend a minority without defending their religion!

        • You defend persecuted minorities not the religion they follow ???? you have just contradicted yourself big time.

          Yes we do no we don’t and no we haven’t

          Those very “minorities” follow an ideology that contravenes our own cultur

          I am sure the Jews will be pleased to hear that.

          …islam does not accept western civilisation

          Prove it!

          You cannot defend a minority without defending their religion!

          Last time we looked Australia had freedom of religion. Are you in a different country?

    • So….you have a problem with women breastfeeding in public. You also have a problem with women covered from head to toe, or even wearing a headscarf. So, under your rules women are not allowed to be too exposed, or not exposed enough, have to be covered, but not too covered.

      Wow-that’s so liberating for women! You must feel proud you promote such freedom in women, but extremely limiting what clothes they’re allowed to wear, and what acts they’re allowed to perform! Go you!

      Have you got a chart worked out showing the perfect middle ground of “Acceptable levels of exposed skin”? Think you’d better!

      Seriously, how many times have you seen a Burqa? Ever? Ever seen a burqa? I live with a lot of Muslims nearby, and I think I’ve seen a niqab three times at most, and never a burqa.

      • Yes I do have a chart, a happy medium. NO extremes one way or the other, is that like….too much for you to comprehend? I have seen more than my fair share of burqas and this is unacceptable. As the numbers expand…so will the burqas. I don’t have a problem with hijab or a head veil, I have a huge problem with burqas.

        • Okay, so what’s the percentage? How much is too little, and how much is too much? What is too exposed? Are bikinis okay (They don’t leave a lot to the imagination), but breast feeding not-is that it? Are women allowed to expose their breasts to sun bath, but not to feed their child-are these the rules you stand by?

          I said, how many actual burqas have you seen. Don’t just say “More than my fair share”-considering around 2% of the muslim population of Australia (Which is a tiny minority of Australians wear them), actually wear burqas, you must be extremely lucky to meet so many!

          “As the numbers expand…so will the burqas. ”

          Well, the numbers of Muslims have expanded so far. So you should have some proof of your theory by now, shouldn’t you? Or are you just making it up?
          I mean, you do know that women wearing burqas in ISLAMIC countries are the exception, not the Norm, right? You do know that?

          “don’t have a problem with hijab or a head veil, I have a huge problem with burqas.”

          Well, let’s be honest, you do have a problem with the hijab-because it’s worn by Muslims. Am I wrong?

          And what’s your problem with burqas? I don’t like them either, but it’s an overblown issue, that has little effect of my own life, and plus I don’t think you can liberate women by legislating what they are and aren’t allowed to wear. What do you think?

        • Bikinis are worn at the beach…..have you forgotten about the old adage that there’s a time and place for everything?! BTW I have yet to see topless women in public except the beach. I personally don’t appreciate topless sun baking….there is no need for it and women who do so are crass (for want of a better word). Pertaining to % of women wearing burqas in australia? I have seen a few…..and even a handful is excessive, it should not be allowed, period! You are obviously in la la land when saying that burqas are the exception in islamic countries, not true besides which I don’t give a ff about what goes on in islamic countries. I am all for assimilation and wearing a burqa is a rebellious and blatant act of not assimilating especially when these women know that the majority do not appreciate it! These women are also forced to wear it, they don’t choose to do so and I know that for a fact, it is not liberating for a woman to be wearing a burqa irrespective of what some would say, fear does amazing things to a person. My work provides me with factual insight.

        • Bikinis are worn at the beach…..have you forgotten about the old adage that there’s a time and place for everything?!

          They are also extensively peddled and promoted as garments of choice by Australian males

          I personally don’t appreciate topless sun baking….there is no need for it and women who do so are crass

          Strangely enough most women probably aren’t interested in what other women wear or don’t wear to the beach. So why are you?

          … and wearing a burqa is a rebellious and blatant act of not assimilating

          And as long as you lot persecute them for doing so, Muslim women will continue to wear religious dress as an act of defiance – good on them.

          My work provides me with factual insight.

          The printing trade?

        • Just to be clear, do you think women should be allowed to breast feed at the beach? What if they’re fully covered up, except for one exposed breast for which to feed their children?

          “I personally don’t appreciate topless sun baking….there is no need for it and women who do so are crass (for want of a better word).”

          So, more regulations for women. You really are wanting to repress women’s rights, don’t you?

          “Pertaining to % of women wearing burqas in australia? I have seen a few”

          Again, how many is a few. Is a few one or two? Or is it none?

          “I am all for assimilation and wearing a burqa is a rebellious and blatant act of not assimilating especially when these women know that the majority do not appreciate it!”

          Okay, so should we ban all other items that demonstrate non-assimilation? So all traditional dress, all racist t-shirts (We fought a war against racists, after all)-or just a special law for Muslims?
          Oh, and we’re meant to ban clothes if a majority of people do not appreciate it, now are we? Are we going to conduct polls every four years to determine which clothes are banned, based on a majority view, or is it again a rule you only want to apply to Muslims?

          Funnily enough, I remember an episode of can of worms where they did conduct a survey on the burqa amongst Australians, and yes, the majority didn’t think the burqa fit in Australian society. But you know what a majority also wanted-not to ban it! So while the majority do not want it, they believe in live and let live-so why can’t you do that also?

          “These women are also forced to wear it, they don’t choose to do so”

          And if it’s banned, what do you suppose will happen to the women being forced to wear it?
          Y’see, this is the problem I have with those anti-burqas cursaders. I don’t like the burqa either, but every ban will ultimately hurt more than it will heal. They say they do it for the women, but who is ultimately hurt by a burqa ban. The man? no, never the man-it’s just hurting the woman again!

          ” and I know that for a fact, ”

          Cool-like to demonstrate some of those facts?

          “it is not liberating for a woman to be wearing a burqa irrespective of what some would say, ”

          So it is not liberating for a woman to be made to wear a burqa, but it is liberating for a woman to be forced to not wear a burqa?
          Y’know, most people think forcibly removing a woman’s clothes and making her wear less is, y’know, sexual assault….but according to Lauren its liberating now! Even when you force omnen to wear particular clothes, you’re liberating her!

          “fear does amazing things to a person. My work provides me with factual insight.”

          And what work is that?

          And again, what you missed:

          Okay, so what’s the percentage? How much is too little, and how much is too much? What is too exposed?

          Well, the numbers of Muslims have expanded so far. So you should have some proof of your theory by now, shouldn’t you? Or are you just making it up?

        • Thought I’d follow up on some comments that Lauren has made regarding Burqas in Islamic countries. Remember, according to her, as the number of Muslims increase, so will the number of Burqas. She believes this, even though…

          Fun fact no.1-France, which has a high population of 3 million Muslims, far higher than Australia, has a niqag or burqa wearing of population of…..367…so that’s 0.012% of the Muslim population. Wow-that’s so huge! (Source: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/01/world/europe/01france.html?_r=2)

          Fun Fact 2-The rest of Europe’s burqa wearing population is even smaller!

          Fun Fact 3-More Islamic countries ban the wearing of the veil than enforce it. The countries that do enforce wearing of the veil together make up less than 5% of the world’s Muslim population (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijab_by_country#Muslim_world)

          But remember, everyone, Muslims if given a chance will repress all our women, and make them wear burqas….even though they don’t do that in their home countries. Oh well, they’ll definately repress women, even though four of the five most populous Islamic countries have elected female leaders (Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey & Kosovo). Which is an achievement that, for starters, America has yet to achieve (And Australia only achieved in the last two years!).

        • No, I dont have a problem with the hijab, I made that perfectly clear, I don’t care what ideology or religion lurks behind a woman wearing a head veil or a hijab and for that matter I don’t have a problem with muslims. Integrate and assimilate with your adopted country and I’m happy. Rebel against it and I do have a real problem with that! If muslims want to pray….so be it but not at the expense of others, employers should not be forced to allow muslim’s “prayer time”. Universities should not have to provide special bathrooms so muslim’s can wash their feet before praying, nor should the curriculum be interrupted to suit muslims. Is that clear enough? Nor should christian colleges be forced to hide the crucifix for fear of offending muslims. Muslims choose to attend a christian college, they should accept what goes with it. How rude and selfish are they?

        • We contemplated leaving you in the Spam bin but have decided to amuse ourselves with you.

          We don’t give a flying fuck what you have problems with.

          Having problems? See a psychiatrist.

          Muslims wishing to send their kids to a Christian school because they prefer them to the government offerings invariably choose Catholic schools. Where crucifixes are not hidden and where girls may wear hijabs as part of their uniform.

          Next time you post you better have some facts not brain farts.

    • It’s good to see some others pointing out the (fairly obvious) errors, hypocrisy and contradictions of this bunch of very sick people, who presume to now “police” the thoughts, speech, and actions of Australians!

  4. I bet you wouldn’t crucify a muslim’s opinion no matter what it entails yet you jump leaps and bounds to vehemently criticise a non muslim. You are so full of shit, go gargle your E Coli ridden mouths!

      • @Lauren- once again, a bogot tries to hijack a women’s rights issue to spread their venom. TAB is Anti Discrimination, and it seems an awful lot like discrimination to allow sexed-up teenyboppers to parade underwear pics on facebook, but not nursing mothers.

      • It’s damn obvious what this all has to do with muslims, ignoramus! I have read your other postings and you come to muslim’s defence incredibly strong and yet if you were to live under an islamic regime…breastfeeding in public would not only NOT be allowed but you would have to wave a permanent goodbye to alcohol amongst a thousand other things. You’re nothing more than a grand hypocrite.

        • And you’re nothing but a xenophobic wuss who is obsessed with Islam. At what point do you think Australia is going to ban public breastfeeding? How about never? Around the same time we’re all forced to wear burqas… which will also be never. Maybe look up the word “democracy”?

        • Lauren Rivera have you ever considered putting up evidence to your claims and no not from The Media especially from Today Tonight and Andrew Bolt who are well known for lying and scare mongering in their stories or are you just a potty mouth?

    • So….because some Muslims have opinions that are worse than yours, we’re not allowed to criticise yours?

      Fun fact-the TAB has criticised a muslim’s opinion-in particular one Sidiq Conlon. It’s rare, because this is an Australian site, and Australians are, by and large, not Muslim.

      • It’s funny, but if anyone else but a card carrying-self hating-liberal-leftist-multicultist said something like that, they’d be “discriminatory”, or something, wouldn’t they? It’s hysterical how people like you chop and change with what you say Australians “are” or “aren’t”, now”! Australians are, by and large, also NOT a lot of things! However people like you are hell bent on “changing” that, aren’t you?!

        • What’s discriminatory, Scott, about saying Australians are, by and large, not Muslim? Look at the demographics of religion in this country, and you can see that only a small proportion of Australia is Muslim.

          But there’s a big leap from saying “A minority of Australians are Muslims” (Which is actualyl what a lot of anti-racists point out, whenever idiots like you say “We’re being invaded by Muslims”), and saying “People who differ in anyway from the majority are not welcome in this country” which is what you seem to imply in all your posts opposing any non-white migrants, non-christian migrants, or anyone who doesn’t look exactly like you.

          Here’s a quick fact for you, Scott-EVERYONE in some dimension in Australia is not part of the majority. You want to talk about religion-well there’s much more Catholics in Australia than other religions, but the majority, as in over 50% of the country is not Catholic-so Catholics are a minority, and by your rules are not Australian. Anglicans too. And before Atheists start feeling too good-they’re not the majority either. Let’s go beyond religion to political beliefs-anyone with any party support would not share that with over 50% of the country-so everyone, politically is a minority too! And Scott, pretty sure the majority of Australians don’t see prostitutes, and those that do, don’t proudly reveal that on a public forum. So guess what-you’re doubly a minority too!

        • And for that exact reason, the argument that the bogots always throw out- “Do YOU want to live under Sharia Law? Do YOU want to wear a Burqa?” Is utterly ridiculous. The MAJORITY won’t agree to any forms of extremism from any religious or political group, as this is a democratic society and always will be.

        • But that’s their logic. You either a) agree with them 100%, or b) want to live under Sharia Law.

          They fail to recognise that the vast majority of the population want neither.

          It’s a unique form of ignorant narcism I’ve started referring to as “The Bolt Effect”.

  5. @Lauren A few things about your comments have made me feel very uneasy.

    1) You suggest that breast feeding is synonymous with porn “…If breastfeeding women want to parade their tits….let them partake in a porn site” This is really disturbing Lauren and your viewpoint on this suggests that you have some perverted tendencies.

    2) My body is a sacred vessel at the moment but when the time comes, I will not hesitate to breastfeed my baby, if and when s/he needs feeding. Seeing as I will be breaking no laws, this will be offesive only to your sensibilities and therefore your problem. You will need to manage your discomfort as and how you see fit.

    3) In breastfeeding my child in public I will neither be “parading” my breasts or partaking in porn as you suggest. I’m not out to impress anyone, I’m not being pretentious. I’m fulfilling a very real need in feeding my baby.

    4) Congratulations to those members in your family who have managed to express their milk! I tried to do this with my first child and experienced pain and stress as a result. I suffered mastitis and quickly came to the conclusion that, for me, breast was best.Why should I and my child be made to suffer for the sake of abating discomfort in others? Alas, not all of us mothers are able to do what your sister and sister-in-law have managed. Neither should we have to.

    Lastly, I would like to bring to your attention again that breastfeeding in public is not against the law. However, it IS against the Law to discriminate against mothers who are breastfeeding (this applies to all states in Australia) under the Anti-discrimination Acts and our Equal Opportunity Acts (Victoria and Western Australia). By berating mothers in public (whether on the internet or otherwise) you will be breaking these Laws and until the Law states otherwise, I won’t be affected by your, and no doubt others, discomfort.
