Facebook and Brestfeeding
If you have not heard of it by now there is a big brouhaha over Facebook removing pictures and videos of moms breastfeeding. They ARE NOT contrary to popular gripes removing all of them.
No, breastfeeding is not dirty or pornographic, hell when I was a kid i grew up when neighbors actually sat on their front porches and conversed when people walked by, while breastfeeding their kids.
I personally believe that many of the women who started this protest were seeing how far they could push and envelope and that is not right.
1) Why do you have to put these pictures and videos on line?
2) If you want to share with family members then ** EMAIL ** them, it IS that easy.
3) It is Facebooks property, they and they alone have the right to dictate what is and is not appropriate whether or not you or I approve. GET USE TO IT! They can do as they please, you accepted their agreement so you are out of luck. The moment someone tells me what I can do on my personal site is the day that our republic based on a democracy takes an another giant hit to personal rights.
4) These women can PAY for their own site, write it, maintain it, and make up their own rules. Oh yeah, these women do not want to have to pay, they want a site that someone else pays for and allows them to use it FOR FREE and then they want to make the rules. Get a grip people you have no right!
There are many other issues that come into play here if if you do not understand or agree with these you never will. I am telling you your stance is wrong. Do not tell me about freedom speech either because this is not covered by the freedom of speech, it is someone else’s property and if you do not like their rules you can pay for your own space go somewhere else, just leave or play by their rules.
If you come to my house and you do not like my rules and I ask you to leave and you do not that is TRESSPASSING, I believe that this same law should apply to web sites.
Be aware the above is coming because of Megan Meier myspace incident. This might have been avoided if their computer was in a common room.
One more gem, people have been DEMANDING that websites assume parental responsibilities regarding safeguarding THEIR children and now that some sight is doing this based on what they believe is appropriate people are all up in arms about it. This defies ALL LOGIC.
Let me add that you are the parents and I do not believe that web sites should be responsible to be a parent. No computers should be in kids rooms they should be in a common area so that YOU as a PARENT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN KIDS ACTIONS. It is your job to teach them what you think is appropriate or not.
