LiveJournal drama! Like, OMG, we haven't heard of that before. But seriously, this time it's between the blog hosting site's abuse team and some of California's militant breastfeeding advocates.
The advocates (who call themselves Boob Nazis) started fighting when abuse team member Eric told one member:
We have recently been made aware that your default userpic is inappropriate....We must request that you discontinue using it as your default by no later than 00:01 (midnight) EST 23 May 2006. If at that time, you have not made the change requested, your journal will be suspended.
After the jump, a taste of the breastfeeder's response.
In what way do you classify a photograph of an infant nursing, the single most natural act between a mother and child, as graphically sexual or violent in nature — or indeed, as sexual at all? Breastfeeding is not a sexual act. It is not a violent act. This icon in no way violates your state Terms of Service.
And back to the abuse team:
Finally, please be aware that write-in campaigns are never effective in swaying the opinion of the Abuse Team or LiveJournal administrators, or in focusing attention on a particular issue.
Oh snap. And the boob-bearers are protesting with some sort of sit-in. Pick sides, people — either the baby-breeding breast-feeding Boob Nazis or the play-safe-now-kids boob-blocking abuse team is going down.
