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.

    I posted about Facebook yesterday, and as a proud beta cre8Buzz member I’d love to plug them on my blog…where did you find that quote from them? Can I just c&p it from here?

    If I didn’t love cre8buzz before, I adore it now.

    Time to gain back my top 8 status and pimp out that site some more!

    Nice choice of words – ‘expressing themselves’ – heehee! 😆

    Anyway, that’s great news. I’m already in the women’s community & everyone is really friendly. Definitely recommend joining!

    Great news! (I hope people don’t post pics of the dirty diapers though? I see enough of those in real life to do me thankyouverymuch 😉 )

    That’s awesome. As a mom who wanted to breastfeed but couldn’t and believes everyone should support those who do, I think that is great!

    Well, I took Kristin’s advice and cancelled Facebook (it was annoying anyway)– and I am now part of Cr8Buzz — fun site!

    While I no longer breastfeed, I’m a big supporter of being able to feed your kids how you want, where you want and when you want.

    The only way we can get rid of those pesky crappy attitudes is to make it more visible and prominent and get people used to seeing breastfeeding women! Why are we the only country in the world who have problems with it? Geesh!

    Ok, so apparently I registered for Cre8Buzz and promptly forgot my login and/or password. Sometimes I really am as big an idiot as I think I am.

    Anyway. I canceled my FaceBook account today and put up a post on my blog about it. Once I can figure out how to get back on to Cre8Buzz, I’ll be happy…..

    This is why we love the Buzz. And might I take some credit for telling Antman that he should allow us to put up our pics? Because I did. 🙂

    Breastfeeding is a huge leg-up for the babies! They don’t have a complete immune system until they are 2 years old. What they lack, they gain from the Mother through the milk! If a Mom is able to breatfeed, she gives her baby the best chance of optimum health possible! How can anyone be “against” healthy babies? Floyd

    The fact that anyone considers breastfeeding pictures pornographic is beyond what my little brain can understand. Way to go cre8buzz…

    Whoohoo! Yeah! One of the hardest things about breastfeeding, is that so many people have never seen anyone do it. So a new mom has no idea where to start! But we’ve all seen bottle-feeding… Must blog about this site!
