Breastfeeding & Facebook

So far, I’ve seen at least three mothers on Facebook have breastfeeding photos reported on their profile.  I’m going to share my unadulterated opinion on this topic.

First of all, let me say that I don’t have a problem with kids.  Several of my friends are parents, and I applaud them for the amazing job they’ve done and are doing with their kids.  I also don’t have a problem with breastfeeding your kids.  It’s natural, and if you’re a parent who never has never or will never breastfeed your kids – you’re doing them a significant disservice.

But I don’t want to see your fucking tit on my newsfeed.

Sorry, not sorry, but I don’t.  When I’m scrolling through cat pictures and geek, tech-related shit, the last thing I want to see is a boob with a kid attached.  It’s not that I have a problem with breastfeeding, it’s that I have a problem with it being in my face.  I have a problem with losing control of my relatively modest newsfeed to mothers who can’t help but post a picture of their kid on the boob.  You’re such a social media rebel, good for fucking you.

In my opinion, breastfeeding is an immensely intimate situation between you and your child.  But natural or not, why would you want to put that out for the world to see?  Why do you fucking insist on taking a picture of your kid on your tit, and forcing everyone on your friendslist to see it?  You’re as bad as the sensationalist headlines whose sole purpose is to gain views and likes.  “Next up, Obama is really a Martian alien.  And more gratuitous breastfeeding pictures!  ZOMG!”

What, are you trying to stick it to the man?  Are you trying to break out of acceptable societal norms?  Well good for you, but please, keep that shit out of my newsfeed.  If I wanted to see tits I’d go to PornHub or YouPorn.
