CENSORSHIP: Content Ban, shadow ban
What reason was given for your ban?
A picture of me in a magazine had some nipple showing.
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
Because I’m sexy.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
Yes- they said it was nudity when in fact my nipple was not showing just blurred.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
It affects my content creation, stops me from being seen, heard, and lowers engagement. I use my platform for those who’s voice who have been silenced.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
Your body, voice, and art shouldn’t be shadow banned.
If we stand for freedom of expression, how can we support the youth by shutting them out?
