CENSORSHIP: Shadow & Content ban
What reason was given for your ban?
Contravening community guidelines and Sexual solicitation which was absolutely not the case.
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
The suppression of female sensuality and pleasure education because it’s too much for IG to navigate with their puritanical and draconian investors.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
I appealed and my appeal was rejected again saying that I’d contravened community guidelines.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
It makes me continually self-censor before sharing any images of my art and thoughts.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
The suppression affects us not only on the gram but also in the wider world perpetuating taboos that exist around sexuality, pleasure and shame around the body.
Pleasure Ed is Sex Ed and everyone has a right to access this.
