#Liberated + #Confidence
These are words that describe Kim Kardashian West when she posts images of her beautiful body on Facebook. Her sexy naked body images have close to a half a MILLION likes. Trust me with that much traffic these images are getting reported but somehow they are still up. Even though the following image is directly against Facebook’s nudity rules: “We remove photographs of people displaying genitals or focusing in on fully exposed buttocks,” Facebook keeps these images coming into news feeds because sexualizing women is important for our society to keep on oppressing women.
I wish my clients and other women could feel #Liberated and have #Confidence with their unsexual birth images. I keep thinking the world has changed and we are no longer shoving “women’s issues” behind closed doors.
But then I wake up to find a message from Facebook saying that I have been banned for 30 days and my business page, with 22,000 followers that I worked really hard to aquire, is going to be unpublished because I posted an educational image of a baby being born.
This image did not show “full buttocks” and definitely did not contain “sexual content.” The image that they removed showed a powerful woman catching her own baby standing up, there was a bit of the bottom of my clients bum, thighs, baby’s head…. and some blood.
When I posted this image on Facebook 2 weeks ago it got a lot of traffic. I think it was viewed by almost a MILLION people. I got lots of messages from women that felt empowered to catch their own baby or try birthing standing up after seeing this image. I am sure my image was reported when I first posted it. But two weeks later, Facebook’s algorithms picked it up and determined it was against FB’s Community Standards around nudity, even though it is fully in the limits of the nudity criteria. This happened to me twice in November 2015 over images that were also within Facebook’s nudity requirements.
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING????????
Today I woke up to a message that my business page Apple Blossom Families would be unpublished, this is after only being banned a handful of times since 2013, for images that were always within FB’s Community Standards. I don’t have a contact person that I can defend my image to at Facebook. I just have to sit out my 30 days of silence and wait for my business page to disappear.
