I came up with the term Lactaboobiephobia after I had a few breastfeeding photos taken off of my Facebook page.
This was back in 2012. I was banned from Facebook for 24 hours because of one of the photos.
Facebook has thankfully changed their policy on breastfeeding photos since then, but women are frequently having their breastfeeding photos reported on Facebook.
In fact, I had a few different people contact me today asking me to take down photos that I posted yesterday. They complained they were “sexually explicit”. Give me a break people. It’s just a lactating boob.
All of this lead to Anna Kaplan conacting me after she found my blog on being banned. It has since been turned into a documentary as part of "The Booby Trap" films she is producing.
Watch the trailer here. (Post continues after the video.)
I am incredibly passionate about the topic of breastfeeding in public.
I have three boys and have breastfed them all (still feeding my youngest boy). Over the last nine years I've been breastfeeding my boys in almost every public space you can imagine.
When my middle boy was just one-week-old I was asked to go breastfeed him in the toilet while I was eating in a cafe. The owner obviously did not like the fact that I was breastfeeding in his cafe, so he asked that I head down the hall to the disgusting public toilet and feed him in there.
This was a horrible experience to go through and I don't want anyone else to have this same experience.
