CENSORSHIP: Content ban
What reason was given for your ban?
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
My nipple and piercing was (barely) showing.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
I didn’t appeal, I reposted with the nipple covered and the content wasn’t removed.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
I’m angry that the female body is sexualised so much, I know full well that if it was a male’s nipple the content wouldn’t have been removed.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
Normalise the female body. Especially the nipples, they are only sexualised by the media when in fact they are beautiful and sustain life through breastfeeding.
