I'm not sure what there is for people to get offended about. It's a scar. People get all up in arms when a woman reveals her breast. Well this woman doesn't even have a breast left and she's still in trouble? Ridiculous! FB doesn't go around taking down photos of topless men.
The woman was celebrating beating cancer. I applaud her.
While I applaud her, I also keep in mind that FB doesn't go around looking at everyone's page. Someone on her friends list or friend of a friend reported the picture as offensive. Just like with that mom who had her FB deactivated that was spoken about in the article. And just like the moms who have had their breast feeding pictures removed by FB. The real problem isn't so much FB, it's the people who get up in arms about these sort of pictures and hit the report button.
I'd also want to know who of my so-called "friends" would turn me in for showing the type of pics this lady was showing. I can't see how one of my friends would think I would post porn. If they knew me at all, they'd know better than that.

While I do agree with you Kat, it is FB that makes the final call thought right? I do not see this as nudity, she has less breast than your average guy. If she was a man, I doubt there would be a probelm. The one with her cupping her remaining breast could probably toe the line.. but I have friends in bikini's who show more... and despite being reported, are still there.

I think it is absolutely ridiculous though facebook can obviously do what they want. As someone else pointed out, she has less breast than a man and doesn't even have a nipple anymore.
The story about the baby appalls me even more. What the hell kind of friend reports that! That really made me mad. How hurtful for that family that a "friend" would report their deceased 'picture as inappropriate because of the very thing he died from.
I think the entire notion that boobs=offensive is ridiculous. A heavy man with man boobs bigger than mine is free to go around topless but I'm not? Likewise, he can post topless pictures of himself on facebook but God forbid a woman with a masectomy do the same?
So boobs are sexual? Well I do get aroused when I see a muscular man without his shirt. Heck in countries where women are expected to cover up head to toe, just seeing one of their ankles can cause arousal.
^ I don't think your views are extreme. Many people share that same view.
No her paged shouldn't have gotten banned. I thought FB policy was that no nipple or aerola on a female could be shown? She has neither of those things, so I don't see how this is nudity. This whole FB war on women (which is what it seems) is getting a little old and beyond annoying now. Don't like to see boobs? Then don't look. Sheesh.
I don't see anything offensive about the pics but its not my call. The final decision is with FB. As FB is free, I figure that if I get overly annoyed with decisions they make or content that is there or removed, I can always close my account.
I don't think it's offensive, but like others have said...it's FB, and therefore, their call.
Considering how very easy it is to have a website(free one at that), I see no reason to get up in arms when someone says "nope, sorry, not on our site". Yeah ya may not like it, but, really, not that big of a deal. Not when there are so many other places to go with that.
I commend the woman, more than I could ever possibly muster into words, but FB is probably not the best place to proudly proclaim your triumphs when it teeters on the edge of a TOS violation(or any other site with such restrictions, for that matter). That's certainly no way to get the word out, or, well, celebrate, such a monumental achievement.
Then again, though I use FB, I'm not super fond of it, or how reliant people really have come to be. I'll never understand why such a fad grew to such an enormous "zomg it's on FB, it must be important" kind of deal it's become, lol. I use FB, but I don't really understand it entirely-or rather don't entirely understand the folks who are as reliant on it, as they are. It wasn't all that long ago when blogs, and websites were where all the cool kids were. I preferred it that way.
I think something like a personal site, would be a better place to have something like this. Partly because, yes, you're not restricted by a TOS, but also because it's worthy of something more than FB. (but again that probably has to do with the fact that I don't think of FB all that highly, lol)
