Today’s Lady News: Photographer Says Facebook Removed Her Breast Photos

  • Australian photographer Gemma Rose-Turnbull says a Facebook administrator removed two of her photographs from the site’s “Photos” section because they depicted exposed breasts. One photograph showed a baby being breastfed, while the other showed a topless middle-age woman. Turnbull also had “sexy” photographs, such as from a wet T-shirt contest, which were left up by administrators. “I’ve spent five years doing this project and it really has validated it for me that mainstream media says that young, sexualized breasts are okay and that breasts that fall outside those dimensions are not okay,” Turnbull said. “So we don’t want to see old breasts. We don’t want to see breasts being used to feed babies.” [ABC.net.au]
