    To who ever reported my avatar picture as offensive and not kid friendly...I apologize. However, I am practically in tears. The photo that was removed for being offensive is a portrait of me in my wedding dress. I had my son a month prior and was breast feeding...therefore I had "offensive cleavage". There is nothing more "kid friendly" than the miracle of life and being able to nurse a child. It was the most important day in my family's existance and I have been told that I looked too "provocative". I am so close to sobbing right now. My feelings are so hurt. I am a mother and a great one at that! I am so hurt that people think my appearance is bad for kids. I would never do anything that would damage a child. I thought it was a beautiful picture that's why I used it. I am sorry to whomever it offended...but I don't see anything wrong with the photo. That's what I look like...I don't know what picture of myself would be less provocative...I don't get it...I guess I looked like a tramp at my wedding...I am going to go cry now.

    Aw, hon...don't take it to heart.

    Be proud of your appearance, no matter what. On a forum with 9000+ people, I'm sure there's someone who could find a way to be offended by just about anything here.

    :aww

    I thought it was an absolutely great portrait. I don't think I realized it was in a wedding dress. I am sorry it was removed and I am sure you will find a great one to post. [​IMG]

    My thoughts exactly. Don't let one out of 9000 get you down. I'm sorry they've made you upset [​IMG]

    Don't cry. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go round. For every person who thinks something is offensive there's usually 10 more who enjoyed it. But you gotta take that one person's opinion into consideration, too. And that's hard.

    I didn't mind the picture, either. And I admired you guts in posting a picture of yourself. I don't do it. I'd rather make people laugh with my sarcastic attempts at wit than with my face....

    Did'nt bother me. I had a person on this forum rant at me through a PM. Told them where to stick it. Don't let one out of many get to you.

    Please don't take it personally sweetie. I don't recall ever seeing it. The pictures are so small its hard to make out what most of them are anyway. Just remember whom ever reported this most likley does not know you and therefor meant nothing personal by it. Do you have another picture of your wedding you could use? Because now you have us all curious and wanting to see wedding pics!!! [​IMG]
