I read somewhere recently (but can’t find it now) that FB has farmed out it’s censoring to entities in underdeveloped countries where misogyny and homophobia are more widely and overtly accepted. The article was about pictures of tasteful male nudity being removed (too gay) while similar images of naked women were allowed (as long as no nipples — ‘cause that’s a sensible line to draw, after all and that’s what women are for!) I’ll have to do some more digging and see if I can find it and some documentation about the censors issue.

In any case, it’s complete BS!
