SixApart getting into a bit of strife over breast feeding

May 23, 2006

Valleywag reports SixAparts Live Journal team is in battle with breat feeding advocates over images on LJ blogs showing breast feeding.

I’m male, so I’m not even going to go near the whole breat feeding in public issue, but I’d share this advice: banning pictures of a totally legal act undertaken by mothers and their children in public, particularly when thise pics are in context, doesn’t bide well for the LJ team, or SixApart for that matter. Surely there would be far worse content elsewhere on LJ or even TypePad for that matter, that would warrant action than pictures of breat feeding, and I’d think from a PR perspective that SA doesn’t really need a fight with the breast feeding nazis that are likely to start attacking the company once this news spreads.
