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!


  1. May I please post this? And tweet this? And pin this? Please!

  2. Please do - my account is safe for now, but this remains an issue for so many feminist pages.

  3. says your page is unavailable

    1. Please keep me posted on that. I've had issues as well....
