I'm not on Fakebook anymore, but back when I was, this is what I could gather of what was acceptable or not to post pictures of, between policy & elective reporting of pictures:

Penis or Vagina, depicted in classical sculptures & paintings = BAD. PERIOD. It's porn! Don't argue!

Shirtless men = Gray zone, may or may not be good, depends if a prude is offended by pecs/moobs.

Boobies = Gray zone, may or may not be good if posted for grown-up ogling, totally bad if a baby is attached.

Fit or merely thin scantily clad women alike = horribly bad, sexually suggestive trash. Shame on you!

Overweight scantily clad women (FAT, people, fat women) = empowering & good, are you TRYING to ruin girls' self esteem by criticizing these?

Ok last one because I had to...


The violence born of Islamists religious zealotry has only been a equalled in history by Inquisition era Spain…


Slavery era?
Native Americans?
Bush' crusade?

All of which pale in comparison to the suffering Sharia and Wahhabism has brought on people for many years. The biggest killers of innocent people throughout history is the State followed by organized religion. Radical Islam accounting a fairly large death toll in both categories. Slavery and the mistreatment of the Native Americans was appalling we all know that. But people like yourself are acting as apologists for one of the most brutal organized religious sects we have ever seen.

And people like yourself are ignorant to what is said and what you comprehend that as.

I can't help that.


Find my apologies or you're just a liar as well.


I'll wait...

As much is your authoritarian wont to control a private corporation, no you cannot ask such.


Unless said company wants to censor a wedding cake, am I right?


Well I've yet to hear of a bakery that doesn't do wedding cakes.
I've also yet to hear of a bakery that was forced to design one on a way they wouldn't any other.


So unless you're argument is that Facebook is discriminating, which would be wrong anyways, it doesn't compute.

Wahhabism and Sharia are not the same thing.

Indeed if I recall correctly Wahhabism is a relatively new ideology. It didn't become widespread until the 1930s.

Really? You dont remember the whole bakery wedding cake fiasco? I know you know what I am referring to.

It is simple, I agree with you that FB, being a private company should be able to run its company any way it sees fit.

Just the same as a bakery should be able to run its company any way it sees fit.

I hope the blatant double standard computes.

Government needs to stay TF out of private buisness.

Not only that, but the West learns from its mistakes and atrocities, and seeks to mend the damage caused. If only the same could be said for Radical Submission.

Facebook can censor whatever it wants.

Let's not forget the equally large numbers of Africans who were marched over the Sahara to be sold in Islamic slave markets.

History glosses over that, but it was just as real and every bit as brutal.

Now if we can just get Facebook to censor the 'duck face' selfies.

Americans are very prudish. They don't know the difference between the nude body and sex. Or art and pornography. It's very sad and juvenile.

I'm not talking about you. Or me for that matter.

But clearly there are still some people out there that get upset by seeing the nude form.

And they hit up places you'd expect the nude form, and STILL bitch and complain. Before we moved, we used to take the kids to an art museum back in FL. We loved it, the wings & grounds were (still are) amazing, we hated having to go home at closing.

Anyway, you would not believe the amount of people who'd notice the naked statues on the grounds and have a cow. You'd think they just hit the Red Light district or something. My kids? First time they noticed, they LOL'd. A lot. "Hahahaha, mom, look, he's naked! So is she, hahahaha!" After a while of walking around, no big deal. "Heh, he's still naked, mom. She's still naked, too." Eventually the giggle novelty wore off completely, took one trip.
Other people? "OH MY GOD, how perverse! Children are here!" Every. single. time we went. Give me a fekking break already.

This country has a lot of growing up to finish doing.

Yep. Those people are just teaching and reinforcing different methods of shame. We basically teach shame to ourselves in our culture. Which has it's place I guess in that it sets a limit to what is allowed in society that we can all agree with. Otherwise people would be doing all sorts of things publicly that would get out of hand.

However, we can't even come close to an agreement of what should and shouldn't be allowed it seems. For some a miniskirt is the outfit of a prostitute and to others it's just a skirt. A naked statue that is nude is art and to others it's pornographic. You would think we would be able to solve this problem but people have radically different ideas about how the world should be.

Some of us do, but modern art tends to blur that line on purpose. Modern art is more about simply provoking response and part of that is to cross the lines between porn and art, sex and simply the nude form in order to shock and offend or be transgressive. It's a bit of the art world equivalent of putting a crucifix in a jar of urine of smearing the virgin Mary with elephant dung.

And that may be where some of your problem comes from. The modern sensibility that art transgresses in order to provoke then spills over onto classical art.
