    Go Emma! Deleting nursing pictures should be against some law, somewhere. I remember the same debacle on Livejournal I think? Beyond lame.

    And yet they haven't deleted/disabled pictures of full frontal nudity (seductive), or groups such as "Sex" and "Anal" that you can become 'fans' of.

    Ya I find that odd ... just love the message that continues to be sent in our society that it is ok to oogle the female breast when it is being toted only as a sexual object but god forbid we remind people of its 'other' beautiful and natural function
