Cre8buzz has just given mamas everywhere a new reason to join their new social networking site- unlike Facebook, Myspace and others they have taken a stand and are publicly stating they support not only a woman’s right to breastfeed, but her freedom of expression by posting such pictures.
Yes, you are reading that correctly, a social-networking site is loud and proud that they will NOT consider breastfeeding photos obscene, and support your right to post them. A FAR cry from the recent Facebook and Myspace incidents in which both sites have declared such photos indecent citing their rather arbitrary rules on nudity in pictures. (Many, many pornographic photos can be found on both sites, even today.)
Cre8buzz’s take on the matter-
Our official position:
Cre8Buzz is the place where people can be seen, heard and found and interact with communities of like-minded folks. We believe that each community has its topics, issues and means of expression that are unique. Therefore, we at Cre8buzz accept all means of expression, including photos, as long as they meet reasonable standards of appropriateness for that community. For Moms, breastfeeding is part of motherhood like dirty diapers and sick kids. We have no issue with members of the Moms community expressing themselves with pictures of breastfeeding.
The site goes live on October 7th, however beta invitations can still be had at Mashable invites, or mothers can sign up directly to the moms community here.
