Tittilating stuff from Facebook

A popular social networking site is being criticised for its decision to take down photographs of a breast-feeding baby and a topless grandmother.

Photographer Gemma-Rose Turnbull says she posted the images from her current exhibition on her Facebook fan page.

She says two were taken down by the site administrator, but others showing topless Sexpo workers, a wet tee-shirt contestant and a breast enhancement were left up.

Ms Turnbull says the site's no-nudity policy is being applied hypocritically.

"I've spent five years doing this project and it really has validated it for me that mainstream media says that young, sexualised breasts are okay and that breasts that fall outside those dimensions are not okay," Ms Turnbull said.
