WARNING: Sexually explicit description of a drawing follows. NOT INTENDED FOR NON-ADULTS!
I was more shocked yesterday than I have been in a long, long time. While perusing my facebook page, I saw a status update from a company that I like. I mean I really like them! It is a cute little start-up printing company. I have followed them for a couple of years and I know they would never post anything like this. It was a cartoon. The first frame showed a married woman inviting a young teen-aged boy into her house while she undressed. The next frame showed her on a table spread-eagle with the boy sitting upright in a chair at the tables edge. You could see his head framed between her legs. She was telling the boy how good he is at oral sex. She is completely nude.
Like I said, I like this company so I reported it to Facebook knowing they would find out who did it.
That was yesterday. I received an even greater shock today. Here is what I got back from Facebook this morning:
(I won’t name the site because I like them and know they did not post this. Their site was hacked.)
We reviewed the share you reported for containing nudity and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.
Just what are Facebook’s “Community Standards” concerning pornography and nudity? I copied this directly from their community standards page:
“Nudity – Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo’s David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.”
So, again, a detailed drawing of an adult married woman seducing a young teenager before her husband gets home and showing her nude and him in position “doesn’t violate our Community Standards“ which say Fb “has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity.” ? Short of an actual porn video, what does, then?!?!?
So, Facebook, you are telling us that your “standards” really do not mean anything to protect my moral, upright sensitivities. O.K.
I wonder what they would say to a Christian speaking against the gay lifestyle? Now that would be offensive! Right? Sheesh!
But, as a Christian, a wife, and a mother, and a generally decent person, those are just my opines. I can only hope that you agree.
BTW, I will be sending a link to this to facebook, as well as the hacked business so if you would like to leave them a comment, feel free. Just keep it nice and clean, please. I moderate comments and any left containing profanity, hateful language, that are threatening, or in any other way are not conducive to civil conversation will be deleted.
Thanks for letting me vent!
