Facebook has a big problem. Misogyny.

That word gets thrown around a lot, so I looked it up to make sure I’m using it right. It means hatred of women or girls. A serious accusation. So why do I aim it at Facebook?

They take down photos of breastfeeding because they violate company policy on content containing nudity.

They do not take down pages or profiles with the following
names, despite their policy against content that is threatening, hateful, or
that incites violence:

– [Satire] Kicking a slut in the vagina and losing your foot
inside

– [Humor] Roses are red, violets are blue… I’ve got a knife,
get in the van

– I kill bitches

– Seeing a Pregnant Woman and Wanting to Punch Her In the
Face

Defending that, while refusing to tolerate images of women
using their bodies to love and nurture another, sounds like the very definition
of hatred to me.

As of this posting, this petition only needs 43 more

there. Click and sign.
