On Facebook, I follow Michael Stokes Photography. I find his photos beautiful and truly works of art. The delightful way he showcases the male body without opening showing the dangly bits is genius. Quite honestly, I find them more breathtaking.
Enter the hater. Click on the image if you can’t read it. The name is blocked out because the person who posted it did so, not me. Normally I would have done the same thing. I don’t like dogpiles for the most part. However, I’m getting pretty disgusted at the double standards out there. Here’s your first reading lesson: Inside Facebook’s Outsourced Anti-Porn and Gore Brigade, Where ‘Camel Toes’ are More Offensive Than ‘Crushed Heads’.
Why do people think they need to be everyone’s moral compass? I don’t give a flying fuckaroni if she’s a preacher’s daughter. I know a preacher. I count him as a very good friends and he’d never raise his children to breed hate like the mumps through the NHL (..too soon?)
There’s this, like, feature on Facebook that, like, you can hide photos and stuff? /sarcasm
I don’t know what’s worse about this lady’s response to Michael.
- Her lack of intelligence through poor use of the English language
- The preachiness of her saying she knows the ‘love thy neighbor’ clause but going to ruin him
- Or the bit about pornographic material or that he racist ….what?
NEWS FLASH: you need to like the page or have friends that repost it to see it. I wonder if she’s ruining her friends as well. Hell, she’s already murdered the English language.
I’m all in thinking that Facebook has some pretty fucked up rules and let’s face the facts–everyone has their own gauge on where the line is on some of the things listed in that article. Please don’t argue they’re a privately owned company either because they’re also a publicly traded company. Oh there’s this bit below to ponder.
Facebook’s Mission Statement
Founded in 2004, Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.
One of the photos to be taken down showed a veteran who had lost part of his leg serving his country. No cock and balls shoot or butt crack to be seen. Just a powerful image of a man who didn’t let his disability defeat him. It inspired other vets n the same situation but some religious zealot took it upon themselves to wage war on what they perceived as ‘sin’. I think they forget the verse about ‘love thy neighbor‘ or ‘judge lest ye be judged‘. Oh I could go on for days with these quotes. I’m a church goer myself yet here I am … writing erotic romance.
Granted, Facebook initially put it back on and apologized but it doesn’t matter when Michael has taken down all his photos that inspired so many from his Facebook page after the last ban.
I leave you with this. RAWR.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I got some church going to do. 😉
