Apologies if this has been posted here before. I remember finding this website a couple of years ago and it made me very happy and even lessened some insecurities I had at the time about my breasts.

Facebook has removed a seemingly risque photo of a naked woman reclining in a bathtub, mistaking her rather large set of elbows for a pair of breasts. The social network removed the misleading photo because it deemed it to contain "pornographic" content, according to the audio-visual web magazine, Theories of the Deep Understanding of Things. While at first glance the photo appears to show the woman's buxom breasts, upon closer inspection it soon becomes clear all that can be seen is an innocent elbow.
Updated May 03, Breast Cancer Network Australia BCNA says it is "deeply disappointed" after Facebook decided to ban images from its latest campaign which features topless survivors. The images show the scars and mastectomies of nine women and one man and while the fundraising ads were approved by Facebook last month, the social media giant had a last-minute backflip before Thursday's campaign launch. The not-for-profit organisation slammed the ban as "nonsensical" and said it threatened fundraising efforts, which are being run in conjunction with a prominent bakery.
The recall comes after a March Food and Drug Administration hearing, which was held to discuss the safety of breast implants after a report found a link between the devices and a rare form of cancer called anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or ALCL. During the hearing, numerous women who had or currently have breast implants shared stories of other adverse side effects they experienced. Although many plastic surgeons deny this illness exists, some doctors advocate for women and help them remove their implants.
Outspoken Future Forward Party spokeswoman and list MP Pannika "Chor" Wanich is full of compliments for netizens' cheeky imitation versions of a now-famous suit she wore to parliament early this month, which helped trigger a personal spat with two women politicians who thought it out of keeping with mourning wear. However, she insists the hi-so fashion suit was an appropriate show of mourning, and also strikes a blow for the right of women, no less than men, to wear a combination of black and white in the House. In the days following the suit's debut in the House, one net idol took a white suit and spray-painted it in shades of black to achieve the same unusual look, spurring compliments from Chor for its authenticity.

They create an unflattering comparison but also an unobtainable ideal. I wanted to rehumanise women through honest photography. Dodsworth interviewed each woman at length, starting by asking them how they felt about their breasts.
Breast cancer is the uncontrollable growth of malignant cells in the breasts. The exact cause of breast cancer is unknown, but some women have a higher risk than others. This includes women with a personal or family history of breast cancer and women with certain gene mutations.
