A Virtual Nurse-In has been started in response to Myspace.com deleting countless pictures and graphics of a breastfeeding child/mother. Yet, the ads on Myspace.com’s very own home page normally contain scantilly clad women and finding young children in barely there clothing is no hard task. We are asking that the Myspace staff recognize the fallacy of this policy. If every state allows a woman to breastfeed in public without a law being broken, then why does Myspace.com have an issue with it?If you want to participate, please make your main myspace picture one of you nursing (or whoever). If you dont have one, or are uncomfortable putting up pictures of your children, there are many “icon” type pictures out there.

Here is the petition you can sign to tell Myspace that breastfeeding pictures are not obscene. Please sign and pass it to others.

To: Myspace.com

This petition is in response to Myspace users having pictures of a nursing child deleted. Our goal in signing this petition is to open the eyes of not only the men and women who run Myspace.com, but also to the public that there is NOTHING offensive or indescent about a mother and child nursing. Breastfeeding is a natural thing and is something that no woman should be made to feel embarrassed about. It is legal in EVERY state to breastfeed in public where any woman and child have the right to be. It is sad that even in this day and age that a woman is expected to retreat to a bathroom or her vehicle to feed her child because it “offends” someone. Myspace has been deleting countless pictures and graphics of a breastfeeding child/mother, yet the ads on their very own home page normally contain scantilly clad women. Not only that, but finding young children in barely there clothing is no hard task. We are asking that the Myspace staff recognize the rights of its users to post their pictures of breastfeeding proudly. If every state allows a woman to breastfeed in public without a law being broken, then why does Myspace have an issue with it?

    Well, I can’t do this because I’m not a woman and I don’t have a child. I’ll go talk about it at the Activism Forums, though.
