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.
