Boob Nazis Get LiveJournal Abuse Team All Hot & Bothered


Valleywag reports that a breastfeeding advocacy group blog on LiveJournal was told by the LJ Abuse Team that their userpic [above] was "inappropriate" and that they must discontinue it or face blog-suspension.

The Boob Nazis [their name] fired back, that the photo of "the single most natural act between a mother and child" is neither graphic nor sexual. [Unless, of course, you're a hall monitor on LiveJournal and this picture is the closest you've ever been to a breast since your own nursing days.]

That said, if the Boob Nazis need a different breastfeeding mom pic, I have a suggestion...
