People that are on the you love to hate it too social network, otherwise known as Facebook, are all jumping ship and I am here to be the black sheep that cries out… Wait! Let me give you a few reasons to hang around.
Sure their policies are hypocritical and that does suck, but they also save lives! That's right. The paper that broke the breastfeeding scandal of deleted profiles is now reporting that Facebook has saved a Canadian woman from rabies from an infected bat. So please don't go batshit crazy.
How about protesting their sucktitude with other methods? You could join the group Hey, Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene! (Official petition to Facebook) where over a thousand breastfeeding pictures are posted. You can add your own breastfeeding pictures in support of the women who had their profiles deleted.
Buy some onesies for your child that read:
"Why buy formula, when you can get the milk for free?"
"I know where my next meal is!"
"My mom's more than just a nice rack"
Sign me up for a fun night of protest where we go around and flash the girls to give people something to talk about for real. Everyone in their right mind knows that as soon as you attach a baby to a boob, the woman is sustaining her child's life. She is not trying to make you uncomfortable. She is not partaking in a sexual act. I don't think spring break activities have been protested as much as those evil mothers that are not starving their children.
To the people that pop their rocks at the mere sight of a breast, you might consider getting a tattoo to remind yourself that Spring Break = Sexual / Breastfeeding does not. Still having difficulties? Envision your own mother breastfeeding.
I support The League of Maternal Justice but dear friends and flee-ers of Facebook, please don't leave me alone with the hordes of women poking my husband. I must stay and check in on his profile.
If you do deactivate please stay away from all rabid animals.
P.S. There is a free trial of Picnik Premium available this week. It's an application that I discovered through Facebook. It's a super easy way to make your photos look stunning!
