CENSORSHIP: Content Ban
What reason was given for your ban?
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
Because it was considered ‘too sexual’.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
Yes I appealed and received absolutely no response or acknowledgment.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
It’s angered me as the images I posted wouldn’t have been removed if it was a male body!
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
Male and female bodies are seen completely differently when it comes to nudity. Male skin and the male body is something seen as ‘normal’ and people see topless bodies without thinking twice. Yet when it comes to women if a woman is topless it’s instantly connected to sexuality.
