Mid-week Grievances

I've just been thinking about this lately and I wanted to get it out.  Recently, I'm sure you heard that Facebook has deleted a "fan" page of the popular blog, The Leaky Boob.  You can read about it here and here.  Also you can find the ridiculous email from Facebook here.  The email gives no specific reason for the deletion, but it's no secret that Facebook is a fan of boobs... as long as they aren't feeding children.  Just Google Facebook and breastfeeding and I'm sure there are a plethora of articles on their penchant for deleting breastfeeding photos and labeling them obscene.

I breastfed my son.  I intended to breastfeed my daughter (didn't work out).  I'm going to breastfeed my new baby.  I support breastfeeding as much as the next person.  I think it's what's best for infants.  It's a natural process.  I'm also going to tell you that I really DON'T want to see photos upon photos of anyone with a boob popped in a kids mouth.  You, my dear Readers, will never see a photo of my boobs feeding my baby.

I do not think that women should have to hide while feeding their babies.  You're not going to find me hiding in a bathroom while feeding my baby.  However, you aren't going to see me whippin' out my boob in public either.  So there I said it.  I don't want to see lots of mommy boobies feeding little baby mouths.

Back in December, Leon Walker was all over the news.  Who is Leon Walker, you ask?  He's the husband who is being charged with a felony for "hacking" into his wife's email account and finding out she was having an affair.  Seriously?  A felony?  For reading his wife's email?

Yet dear ol' Julian Assange of WikiLeaks fame (or infamy) can hack (or have others hack) into the world's government's emails and broadcast those emails across the World Wide Web for all to see.  Yet he isn't being charged with ANYTHING.  Does this make any sense at all?  Hell no, it doesn't.

Brett Favre.  Good grief.  C'mon man!  It's no secret to my friends and family that Favre has been my favorite NFL player for years.  Maybe I feel like I should defend him a bit, but seriously?  If I were being sexually harassed by someone I wouldn't be waiting TWO YEARS (and mere moments before the statute of limitations runs out) to say "oh woe is me... a super famous football player sent me sexual text messages and I felt violated".    Can we say "looking for our 15 minutes"?  Yeah, I thought so.

My husband and 29 of his fellow co-workers went in together and purchased several chances at the Mega Millions lottery.  They didn't win.  This pisses me off.  I had plans for that money.  But then again... the numbers were eerily similar to Hurley's and that is scary.  However, 9,000+ people did play those numbers and each won $150.  Hey 9,000+ people... DON'T use that money to buy a plane ticket, mmmm 'kay?

  1. I think it's beautiful when women breastfeed their kids... not the Megan Fox kinda beautiful but rather the El Capitan on a spring morning kind of beautiful. And Facebook are being douchebags? I'm shocked... SHOCKED.

    And seriously the guy didn't HACK into his wife's email. She gave him the fucking password! Now I'm sure it's against the law to use the password when he knows damn well he shouldn't (think about giving the key to your house to your neighbor 'just in case' only to find out they've been going in your house regularly for no apparent reason other than to snoop. That's a crime too)... but still that's not hacking.

  2. I love this post. And surprisingly, since I don't agree with much, I agree with every part of it.

  3. Facebook definitely has it out for breastfeeding mamas, but apparently has no qualms whatsoever with young girls (including the infamous Miley Cyrus FB pics) hanging their boobs out, pushing their boobs up, and taking a picture far above their heads so that it aims right down their shirts. Hmm...

    Also, I am pissed you didn't win the lottery cause I had plans for THAT money. I'm sure you would have bought me a place to housesit for you in Savannah, right?

    Brett Favre, listen, you should not email pictures of your weeine. Especially, ESPECIALLY, when it's a teenie weenie. Right?
