Facebook... Keeping It Clean!

So, Last week I posted a link to a news article about Topless Jihad, this article to be exact:

And last night I received an message from facebook saying this post has been removed because it is obscene & if I post anything like this again my account will be deleted. The weirdest part is after I looked at the message it deleted & it's now as if it never existed. Shady facebook, very shady! Isn't that censorship?! It was a news story, but I guess freedom of press doesn't extend to facebook!

So let's take a look at what facebook considers obscene & not:

Obscene! This is just not right. That baby should be ashamed!
Hot Girls... profile picture now this is more like the kind of photos facebook wants us to post, classy ones! Not considered obscene at all?!
A breast cancer survivor who tattooed her chest, obscene & thankfully removed from facebook!
The profile picture from a Horny Girls page, this in no way is degrading to women & perfectly suitable by facebook standards!

This is considered obscene because that man is kicking her, right? Oh no, it's because of the nipples!
Another perfectly fine, by facebook standards, profile picture! 
So basically facebook is saying in a man's world everyone knows woman should only use their breasts in one way, to arouse men! To use them to feed a child, to empower yourself or to fight for equality well that's just plain obscene! Thanks facebook for helping keep women in our place!


  1. This design is steller! You definitely know how to
    keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and
    your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  2. Facebook is notified when people who are seeing what you post are flagging your posts (as inappropriate). It's not Facebook itself. If enough people (your own FRIENDS) flag it because it bothers them, then FB will automatically warn you.
    (So maybe weed through your friends, their values suck!)

    When I see naked (or mostly naked) pictures of girls (like the CLEARLY sexual pictures), I flag them.
    When I saw the Topless Jihad article, I read about it because I was interested to see empowered women.

    Those girls posting nude pictures of THEMSELVES are what's wrong with this world...further objectifying women.../sigh


    1. Hi Meg! Great comment!

      I was worried it was one of my facebook friends who reported me but in writing this I found out that facebook apparently does hire nipple moderators!"Facebook moderation is done by workers in Morocco and other developing countries who are paid $1 an hour by an outsourcing company called oDesk" They scan photos and remove any photos with nipples or anything that looks like a nipple. A $1 an hour?! No wonder they are so bad at their jobs;)
