Facebook Has an Incest Problem - Trigger warning

This extraordinarily creepy post is still up despite many complaints to Facebook.

Facebook responded:

We reviewed your report of Kinky Geeks of Chicago's photo

Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. Reports like yours are an important part of making Facebook a safe and welcoming environment. We reviewed the photo you reported for containing nudity and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards.

There is not a good way to report posts like this.  When I tried to report it myself, I listed my grievance as "This is pornography", which Facebook describes as "includes nudity, sexual arousal, sexual acts, individuals soliciting sex."  After I was told the post did not violate their community standards,  I then tried to report it as "something else"  I chose "bodily harm" of which Facebook includes "graphic injury, bodily harm or  animal abuse or torture. (Not abuse or torture of women or girls - abuse or torture of animals).

I can't think of anything that does more bodily harm than incest. Incest is it's own horrendous form of torture.

When another woman wrote to the page itself, asking them to take the picture down, she was given this reply:

"There is nothing wrong or hurtful about it. Sometimes a grown woman needs the comfort from a man that a father figure would give. this says nothing about age and appropriate boundaries are met. There is no pedophilia here. There is no abuse. There is nothing pornographic either. All it talks about is comfort, love, and security.

For the record, a "little" is an adult of consenting age that pretends to be younger. We do not promote abuse to women or children.

This is between consenting adults. If you can give a real and valid reason for it's removal I would be glad to remove it. Until then go get a good hug and feel the love...."

I have posted about Incest  promoting pages on Facebook before.  

Many pages have since been removed, but there are others still up including, but by no means limited to:
Family Incest Lovers - which actually says, "Just for fun"
Incest Stories - which promises to report your Facebook account as fake if you report them
Incest Roleplay
Incest Sister
as well as multiple private incest-promoting groups.

Perhaps Facebook should read Mia Fontaine's chilling Atlantic piece, America has an incest problem.

It seems that Facebook has an incest problem, too.
