If this has been posted, bite me.



This makes me so freaking heated, that people are turning this into a big deal. The comments posted are disgusting. I can't believe things like this are still an issue. Personally, I wouldn't post that on facebook, but this mom saw her kids doing something that she thought was adorable and had to share. I don't understand how anyone can perceive an act of love an nurturing as perverse. I just want to strangle people.

The only people that find it perverse are the perverts.



That being said, I wouldn't post a picture of my little girls doing that on Facebook, but whatever.

Yeah, well, if they hadn't banned her and later that pic had been shared a bazillion times in the pediphile community- I'm sure she'd be more pissed.



FB is free. Don't like the rules? Leave.

This wasn't really a rant on Facebook. I'm more offended by what people are saying about the mother, and the act itself. I think her intentions were innocent, and I'm completely pissed that commenters are calling the mom a pervert, among other things.

I think it was inappropriate. I know she meant no harm but there are pervs who would turn something innocent into something sexual, and enjoy the photo in the wrong way. Any perv would have jerked off to that. That is sad a mom cant post something that innocent now-a-days.smh

I wouldn't post a pic like that. I'm not a pervert but it does look like it could be taken sexually.

I agree with all of that.



I think it's gross though, that people's minds go straight to sex when they see that.

I don't think it's obscene, no- but you'd have to be an idiot to post it and then be shocked at the responses.

The article also doesn't state whether the photos were private or not.

Yeah, well I'm pretty sure FB doesn't go around inspecting photos looking for baby and breast feeding and whatever photos. They rely on things being reported.

If FB hadn't done anything about it, and her profile pics were friends only, chances are that pic wouldn't of gone anywhere.
However, since FB made a deal about it, and so did the mother, NOW that pic is all over the news where if anyone wanted to do harm, now has access to it.

It's a cute photo. Not sure why everyone's making a big deal over it, honestly. I agree with you OP, the crap being said about this mother is ridiculous.

This is what I don't understand, how are people going to do harm to a photo? A pedophile can come and masturbate over any other innocent baby photo on the Internet and we'd never know. Nobody makes a big deal over that.

I dont think its cute at all. Breastfeeding a baby is a natural thing....if you are the mother. A CHILD cannot breastfeed another child....so why is she all over her chest like that? I know its "pretend play" but its kinda weird IMO. I dont think the mother deserves any negative feedback from anyone...but I dont want to look at a picture like that either...
