Now on Facebook: Syrian refugee brides

"We all know it happens in real life, and now it’s up on Facebook: “Syrian refugees for marriage.” The page has been live for five days, posting photos and statuses about Syrian refugee women “across the Arab world, of all ages and religions – share this page!”

"Elliot Rodger is a Hero": - how many pages like this will spring up on Facebook?

Seven people murdered in a hate crime targeted at women and someone already made a Facebook page: "Elliot Rodger is a Hero".

I wonder how many of these will spring up and whether Facebook will remove them?

The page states:

"This page is a tribute to a real American hero."

Pierce Ayanami Smith wrote on the page:
"He didn't let them suffer enough. The victims all either died nearly instantly, or will survive. Not good enough, if you ask me. They need to be tortured, for hours on end, knowing with certainty that their death will be coming, but not permitted to get it until their bodies absolutely cannot take any more physical pain."

Feel free to comment with more pages below.

Meanwhile, it looks like the only post from A Voice for Men today is:

Update: the first page is down - many more are still up.

MRA's have created Elliot Rodger page, crying about Misandry.

And this gem, with a post with what appears to be Rodger as a child that says:

"Think for a sec if one of the women that turned him down put out for him once. Then all of this could have been prevented. People need to do their duty for humanity."

New one: Elliot Rodger is an American hero blames feminists:

"Feminists, whether you like it or not, you are the cause of this incident.
You have empowered women to essentially bully and reject people, and in this case it would seem that this happened to some poor kid with Autism.

A generation of self important narcissistic cows have been raised rather than the nicer ladies of the previous generations. Who's fault is that? That's the feminist's fault."

Facebook refuses to take down hate speech page memorializing killer Elliot Rodger

"Shoutout to my boy elliot rodger. He did the best thing us men could do. And paid the ultimate price. Let his death be a memorial day in which we hate against the subhuman species called women."

Facebook said this didn't violate their policies (Warning, GRAPHIC)

This came up on my Twitter feed this morning.  The woman who reported it said, "I blocked out her face so she couldn't be identified, but she was crying."

''Men With Boobs': Argentine women reject Facebook's Double-standard of Censorship

"In order to call attention to the "macho censorship" that exists around Facebok, a group of Argentine women began a campaign to protest about, after the manager of the "Girl Power" page was censored at various times after publishing your own photos or other artistic nudes with.

Flower, a young activist told the local media Veloz Journal that "got a photo of Frida Kahlo where he saw the nipple and I erased it. The same thing happened with an artistic picture of my profile. We campaign against that and I deleted the Facebook page ".

In response they created "Campaign against censorship" which is to convert different images of topless women and male breasts cuts to raise awareness of inequality in Facebook when restricting private images.

Activists argue that "we know that men's nipples are not the same as women's nipples, because they meet another function, Facebook but not censure human body when not remove photos or pages where graphic violence shown, pedophilia, sexism and misogyny is a despicable act and we want to express ourselves against this ".

A Win for the Masculinists

I'm so glad Facebook took down all those scary feminist pages and pictures so pages like Masculinist India can stay up!

Facebook's "Community Standards". Enough said.

The page above was set up to harass Amanda Todd and her family even after her death. It appears to have been started about a year ago.

This page was formerly known as IPOATG (I Piss On Amanda Todd's Grave)

The first post says, "This is old news, but still hilarious. Our page may be small now, but given time it will grow. Tell us, what kind of content would you like to see now that we've returned?"

UPDATE: After lots of angry tweets today, the page has finally been removed.

Is FB cracking down on fake accounts or just harassing feminist women?

Desiree "Equal Rights" Jordan was forced to remove "EqualRights" from her name on her Facebook profile.

Desiree responded: "I have no idea why or how they are instituting this 'change". All I know is I went to sign in and FB prompted me to secure my "real identity" by identifying a few of my friend from a list of pics... and refused to let me put the "ER"in my name....very unnerving....I just find it real SKETCHY that FB make me remove my "EqualRights" when they allow pages like "OBAMA MUST DIE" to stay up!!!!!!! ... I feel violated and silenced and coerced! I had to virtually lose the EqualRights in my name IF I want to stay in FB! ...So far I know of three women who were also forced to change their middle names."

Birth Censored Again

Photographer Ana Alvarez-Errecalde has been censored again on Facebook for posting a picture of herself at her photography exhibit behind her home birth photos.

According to Alvarez-Errecalde, This photo was posted over a year ago, and the photos were not accessible to anybody as the page was already censored and unpublished by Facebook.

Alvarez-Errecalde has been blocked from posting for 12 hours.


The social media giant says the picture violated its community standards yet many homophobic pages remain online.

Oh, the irony!

Meanwhile....pages like Just say sorry and we will leave you alone, aimed at child safety activist Jay Marshall  of The Global Alliance Against Minor Exploitation (G.A.M.E.) are allowed to exist with impunity.

"We know everything. You know nothing.
Say sorry and cease and desist."

Why aren't the standards the same? What are the standards???

Radical feminist activist Cathy Brennan has been blocked from posting to Facebook for 30 days, due to posting a music video that was found offensive.

Often accused of 'hate speech' or 'transphobia', Brennan has received numerous 30 and 60 day bans from Facebook. Even if you happen to believe this is true (which I don't), the ban begs the question, why are so pages that host extreme woman-hating, anti-antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism, etc., up without repercussions from Facebook?  Shouldn't everyone be held to the same standard?

It would be interesting to see the stats on how many male-hosted pages are banned or blocked and how many women-hosted pages are.  Based on my loose research these past few years, as documented on this blog, I'd say women are much more likely to be punished by Facebook.

Will Facebook shut down 'The Girl God' page?

I woke up this morning to multiple warnings from Facebook about my page.

For those who don't know my history with Facebook, it started when I wrote Does Facebook Hate All Women - or Just Feminists? back in November 2012.  It escalated after co-founding Rapebook in protest, resulting and rape and death threats against me, my children and other admins of the page.

Over the years, I've seen a lot of  pretty nasty stuff on Facebook. Much of it has been documented on this blog. Child trafficking, child pornography and violent threats against women remain while pictures of mastectomy scars, birth and women breastfeeding are removed.  If you want to have a better idea of what I saw with my own eyes last year, click here. (Trigger Warning)

To my knowledge, none of the people who threatened me on Facebook ever had their pages removed.  So I found this morning's warnings about my 'abusive' content quite interesting.

Um, where's the post that violated standards?

The last pop up message I received said,


A post you made contains content that violates our Terms of Use. This message serves as a warning. Additional violations will result in the termination of your account. Please read our Terms carefully and refrain from posting abusive material in the future. Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

The Facebook Team

I've sent several messages to Facebook, as have other members of my page. So far, no response. I'd love to know what 'abusive content' has ever been posted to my page. Please check it out and tell me what I'm missing.

UPDATE: Looks like the page is safe (for now) thanks to help from someone who would like to remain nameless.  Will keep you posted.  Thanks to everyone for your support!
