Interesting thread, and it is rather odd.
The only point on the Facebook Community Standards that seems remotely applicable is that against hate speech, and that it's a violation to attack
someone based on race (... blah, blah, blah) and sexual orientation.
My main concern would be for the other guy in the photo.
Whether indeed openly gay or not, he may be an individual who values his privacy, and now he's embroiled in a conspiracy that strongly insinuates
that he had a sexual relationship with President Obama, and all the homophobia and potentially violent religious extremism that comes with the
I wouldn't sleep a wink if I was in a photo like that, which is particularly framed to cause scandal and incite homophobic feelings against Obama.
If that man is also on Facebook, then one could understand if he complains, or even threatens legal action.
For Obama tons of such material goes with the territory.
He's all safe and snug behind his guards.
But I really do feel compassion for the other man.
