I ran across a tweet that contained a link to this article. I couldn’t think of anything more relevant to our discussions in this course. The discussion that has developed in the comments at the bottom of the page are almost as interesting as this change itself. It’s exciting to see some serious inclusion going on here. Way to go, Facebook!
Facebook has allowed pages and posts that celebrate assaulting women. For example, from the article:
“Groups and images with allegedly humorous titles like “Raping a Pregnant B***h and Telling Your Friends You Had a Threesome” have always been only a click away and, under Facebook’s content policy until now, stood a better chance of surviving moderator review than photos of breastfeeding babies did.”
