By Dana Guthrie (Beaumont Enterprise) A mom who posted a photo of her 18-month-old daughter breastfeeding on Facebook is planning to flood the social media site with similar photos over the next 72 hours.
Gina Crosley-Corcoran of TheFeministBreeder.com claims on her website that Facebook deleted her photo and suspended her account for three days after she posted the photo.
“The photo broke NONE of the facebook rules for photo-sharing, yet it was deleted and I was punished anyay,” she said in her blog. “This happens all the time.”
Michele Zipp of The Stir highlighted Crosley-Corcoran’s blog, encouraging other women to post their own breastfeeding photos on Facebook starting at 10 a.m. Friday.
This is just wrong,” she said. “Let’s roar loudly so Facebook hears and makes some very needed changes and not just removes a photo because someone reported it…for no good reason, and that doesn’t even violate any rules.”
