Message to YouTube

Filed Under: Life

Dear YouTube,

I love you.

You have given my daughter, my husband, and me hours and hours of enjoyment.

But, I’m pretty pissed off at you right now.

The League of Maternal Justice posted a breastfeeding montage on your site in response to Facebook banning a picture of a woman breastfeeding her child.

It was a nice video. No bare boobs, nothing offensive.

For some reason, you’ve banned our video. I say “our” because my daughter and I were in the video. No warning, no reason. You just banned it.

How is a video of women feeding their children offensive or obscene while videos making fun of animal cruelty and fat people are left on your site as acceptable?

I’m a bit confused, YouTube.

I understand that you have the right to delete any video that you want, but some continuity would be nice. I’m just sayin’.

I just thought that I would write to you and warn you that you’re going to have a flood of “Message to YouTube” videos by pissed off breastfeeding women.

I just thought that you’d like to know.
