CENSORSHIP: Content Ban
What reason was given for your ban?
Violation of community guidelines, nudity and sexual activity.
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
Because someone reported it.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
Yes, the post was removed anyway.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
I had to start a brand new Instagram account and unfortunately not feature any work that could be seen as ‘sensitive’ or a ‘violation of guidelines’.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
This wasn’t even about sex.
