The Power of Hate and Consequences of the Narrow-minded #facethehate

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.

Read and behold the ignorance that still exists.

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.

  1. I am beyond tired of these troll types trying to destroy peoples hard work over their close-minded, zealot beliefs. And honestly, at this point it is extremists/zealots that are doing it when it comes to stuff like this incident. Don’t even get me started on readers attacking someone like a bunch of rabid dogs cause that person may have sneezed in the general direction of an author they enjoy. Also I’m pretty sure that review violates Amazon’s basic review policy. It’s the thing they tell you about what constitutes a review at minimum when you post it. Not sure why it’s up if it was reported cause I’ve seen similar ones get reported and removed.

    That’s sad that his work got removed on FB by someone just reporting it that way. I’m hopeful these new changes will possibly stop that from happening as much, but I don’t know. It’s weird though cause I’ve reported actual offensive and awful stuff(outright encouragement to violence and hate) only to get a message back that says the post didn’t violate anything so. . . I don’t know. FB really needs to straighten that nonsense out. That image above didn’t violate any of their policies so I’m not sure how it can be removed. I have a family member who keeps getting pictures of her little girl reported by someone on her list who is being an awful human being when they’re just adorable pics of a sweet little girl being a normal, everyday child. None have been removed yet(that I know of), but it keeps happening and makes her angry.

    • I reported something that someone tagged me in. It was pictures and a link of people eating cats. I was told it violated no rules.

      Since yesterday, I have been posting artwork such as Michelangelo’s David. Nudity at its finest and showing more than Mr Stokes has with photos.

      It’s a stigma where violence is okay but the beauty of the human form is not.
