Facebook Bans Women From Dragging Men Through The Mud

Article here. Excerpt:

'Facebook banned women for one to seven days after they posted things like, “men ain’t shit,” and “all men are ugly” according to The Daily Beast.

“I personally posted men are scum in November and I received a seven day ban. It’s still ongoing. Two days and 23 hours left,” self-proclaimed comedian Alison Klemp told the Beast. “It wasn’t the best protest because it clearly didn’t work.”

Boston comedian Kayla Avery also said she’s been banned countless times after disparaging men by posting “men are trash” on Facebook. Since she was first banned, Avery has created FacebookJailed.com, a website where women can commiserate about internet censorship.

Another comedian, Heather Fink, told the Daily Beast the Facebook censorship “problem” has been spreading to Instagram where she said she was banned for discussing Facebook’s censorship of rash insults against men.

“Social media is how we communicate. Preventing women from expressing themselves like this is an intimidation tactic,” a social-media strategist told the Beast.

Facebook has not released a statement.'

Slippery slope

FB went down the slippery slope when it began banning/punishing users due to content even if it's lawful but only distasteful.

As nasty as making generalization based on indellible characteristics is, it shouldn't be censored even by private entities that otherwise allow just about anything else. Soon no one's safe from arbitrary whims or the flavor of the day.
