    Why Does Facebook Censor Gay Images?

    Photographer Michael Stokes, among others, says his work is regularly censored by Facebook even when the images clearly don't break the rules. Who makes these decisions?

    Its the human phenomenon of "Everyone else must care about my opinion". I saw Kathy Griffin live in Biloxi, MS last night and of course there was a drunk hick heckler but the funny thing is that after the show he went on Grindr and started complaining to everyone within a half-mile radius about how her humor wasn't funny and he didn't get her jokes or anything. We like to say "If you don't want to see it, don't go LOOKING FOR IT but some people honestly think that their voice absolutely must be heard.

    As to facebook? I'll probably stop caring on May 1 (the deadline for compliance under our new non-smoking ordinance)

    Facebook is so yesterday.

    well honestly his photos seem to be pretty explicit for FB (double) standards. going by the pix on that page.

    i have friends who've been reported and temporarily banned for showing a nipple. but nobody censored anything when Kim Kardasheeen's greasy ass came out of the trash bag. but she's a celeb soooooo.... double standards.

    but for normal people, it really takes one person to report you & if you're showing some skin you're censored.

    i guess they're thinking of the children? lol

    they're being a little bit too nazi.

    also they're deleting posts made by/about drag queens. I dunno what they're excuse is for that.

    LOL, Mark Zuckerberg runs Facebook and is a liberal democrat. More liberal hypocrisy.
