Facebook’s censorship bullshit has hit a new low. They’ve been much maligned in recent years for their draconian anti-nudity rules, but when you’re punishing a bunch of young women for posting images from a tasteful nude calendar they produced to raise money for Cancer awareness and support, you know you’ve got a problem.
Students from the University of Warwick rowing team put together this calendar to raise money, and FB laid down the iron fist. Here’s a video of their photo shoot:
So, their Facebook page, which had 2000 likes, got taken down. They were only trying to drum up a bit of extra publicity, in the most effective way possible these days, through social media. The worst thing about this whole debacle? As quoted in the article:
But Sophie, who is originally from Upminster, Essex, added: ‘It is a charity calendar – how can it be porn?
‘The Facebook account for the male rower’s charity calendar hasn’t been deleted and their page is the same as ours. It is borderline sexism.
This shit doesn’t even begin to get explicit. It’s all tastefully done – hell, there aren’t even any exposed nipples. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, since FB is run by a bunch of heartless robots. Hopefully these gals can get something figured out and have their page restored.
Stuff like this pisses me off. We deal with a lot of bullshit from Facebook about our Sex.com FB page, but we’re a porn site, so that makes total sense. It seems like Facebook needs to go through some reforms to make sure shit like this stops happening.
But they won’t, because they’re Facebook, and they’re a giant faceless corporation run by morons. So there we have it. Here are some of the photos from the calendar in question. Judge for yourself. Hot? Yes. Pornographic? Well, I don’t think so personally!
