This disappoints me

Live Journal, a popular blogging website has deemed that they will no longer allow breastfeeding icons to be displayed as users default icons because they are 'obscene' and 'may be viewed by a wider audience.'

Read the full press release by ProMom here.

I support ProMom, and other's efforts. Breastfeeding is a normal, natural way to feed a baby. It is not dirty or obscene. I breastfed Chickie for almost 2 years and you see way more boob in general advertisements these days.

It appears that breasts are fine when they're for 'fun', but not for 'work'.
