Would you be a bigot if you posted a factual news story about a violent crime?
Would it be "hate speech" if a person posted a factual incident of a protected class who committed a crime?
I'll bet you anything you like, Facebook will not censor anything hateful said against white people nor Christians, which in of itself, shows the political agenda behind this censoring nonsense!

So essentially the platform that people use to take advantage of their freedom of speech here will be monitored?
Female genital mutilation is cruel and unusual, you are corect.
For those of you who do not know what it is, a woman's labia and clitoris are cut off and the (generally) the lips are sewn together to ensure virginity for their future husband.
It is an appalling practice and I do not know why anyone would condone it.
I have a question, who or what is the driving force behind censorship and PC, and why does it have so much power
The main stream media is owned by mega corp., start there.
Yes I did. Don't lie to the people.

What is "Hate Speech"?
Who should define what it is?
If you can't see the problem after trying to answer those 2 easy questions, then you are the obviously the one with an agenda, not I.
I support freedom of speech, not people who allow themselves to be offended by someone else's words!
Sticks and stones. Grow a backbone!
If something someone says on the internet offends you? There is a thing called an off button that is very easily pushed OR many other things to do on the internet other than searching for something that offends you? By saying "you" I am not meaning you yourself, but to everyone, who fits the group I am speaking of.....

Cutting the foreskin off of a baby boys penis is cruel too but I don't see Christians speaking out against it in huge numbers, in fact they allow it for the most part.
This whole Islamaphobia thing is getting really annoying. If you call one religion out for something then why not other religions who do the same thing?
Circumcision in any form is genital mutilation! It serves no good purpose.
