Facebook Obscenity Strike Again!

This photograph is so obscene, the mother's entire Facebook account has been deleted.  Yes, it's Emma Kwasnica's account.  Or was.  Again.

Can you see aureole?  Can you see a nipple?  And I've enlarged it!


Record of all photos deleted by Facebook as obscene, here.

EDIT: And on the same day, they took out Kate Hanson.  For her obscene artwork:

Protest group: here.

Edit Oct 2:  Kate Hansen in back.  Emma is not.  This one will be interesting.  Kate is Art.  Emma is Photographs...  obviously, photographs of real mothers and babies, not the same as painted ones... ;-)

Edit: October 2.  Emma is BACK!!!!  :-)

Her status update:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

Hope it's OK to post this link here, but I read it today and it points out a really-not-at-all-amusing inconsistancy...

I read this on The Idler, written by Tom Hodgkinson, entitled: 'Facebook is Big Brother'.

I totally agree with what he says and I hope other (like myself) deactivate their accounts.

'A couple of years ago, I wrote an attack on Facebook. It was actually simply a description of the agenda of Peter Thiel, one of the principal investors in the business, and that of a few other investors. I admit I had never really looked at it from the point of view of a user. Now I have, and I am absolutely amazed at the pure drivel that people spew out. And also at the level of intimacy that people will share with it, almost like it’s a priest. Have none of the millions of people who upload rubbish, and also non-rubbish, read Orwell’s 1984? Facebook is Big Brother. And no one realizes it. It watches you. It records your tittle tattle. Your likes and dislikes. You waste a horrendous amount of time on it. And people confess things to Facebook that they would not confess to their nearest friend or relative. Think about it. You are being watched, analyzed, counted and commodified by a vast American business. And you have allowed this to happen voluntarily. Wake up.' TH

what do you think?

Like anything, you have to be careful what you do, and what you say etc.

But's its usefulness in social change, is larger than it's drawbacks.

It's how I feel about the Internet, full stop.

I don't know. Yes, it can be a pain in the butt sometimes, but FB has it's uses. Our Boobs for Babes campaign got off to a great start via FB - we got many of our mamas for the calendar via our promo page. I suppose moderation is the key: i.e. your personal revelations, time spent mincing on there...if you have self-control and use it actually as a networking site, then I guess it has a purpose.
