Here’s what I learned yesterday about Facebook community standards. Ukranian separatists exchanging tactical military information about shooting down commercial airliners is copacetic, but ass cracks won’t fly past Zuckerberg’s team of Moroccan censors. It’s an odd thing the degree to which American institutions still cower at the mere implication of nudity. Like that kid in middle school you knew could no longer be your friend after he said the word ‘gross’ when you were all sneaking a peek at your first Playboy.
A bunch of not so bad looking rowing chicks at a college in England put together a bare-assed calendar to raise money for charity, or to show off their bodies, either way, it was a nice idea. But Facebook kaiboshed their calendar page because of the ass-cracks, which are like the Taliban beheading photos only much more likely to cause emotional trauma and lingering nightmares for children. The girls quickly pointed out that the similarly showy men’s rowing calendar page was not removed by Facebook, which proves sexism. If they only knew how scared Zuckerberg is of women. Not that it matters. Unless you’re the breastfeeding mom or the college crew charitable ladies having your Facebook pages killed. Fuck Facebook. It’s all about Kazakhstan message boards for me now. Those Kazakh women get super naughty in their shit sheds.
