I'm Offended Too!

Today I received a message from the Facebook gods that went something like this "Your profile picture has been removed for violating terms...blah blah blah".  Apparently the above photo has been deemed by some shit head to be offensive. According to their terms, a photo cannot contain the following: illegal drug use, excessive violence, direct attacks on a group or be sexually explicit.  Gee...my photo is none of those!  So then WTF was it tagged and deleted for? It's true, the photo could be deemed as a sensual photo.  But definitely not sexual! Not even close!! We are showing a lot of skin. But there's no nipple.  There's not even breast tissue showing! And it's not like we're recreating the act that created our baby! Since when did a showing of the love between two consenting adults & a visual of the ever expanding stomach filled with a tiny human life become offensive?!  You know what offends me (and this is NOT an easy task) is that someone took time out of their day to report our show of love. It's okay for barely legal girls to galavant around on the pages of FB, unbeknownst to their parents, in bikinis & bra tops, showing off ass crack and trying to be provocative, but I can't post a picture that shows off my stomach.  The other thing that really irks me is that I'd like to send in a formal complaint to FB.  To someone that will actually read it.  Alas, I can't find any info where correspondence will be read by a living, breathing, human being.  So here I sit, writing a blog about it, venting, where it will be read by possibly noone.  But at least I feel better now. Go fuck yourself Facebook.  How's that for offensive?!

  1. Sorry but that is ridiculous! I think the only way that can happen is if someone reports you---meaning that one of your "friends" deemed it inappropriate. I could be wrong and truly hope I am although it creeps the crap out of me thinking that our pages are monitored, (which I'm sure they are---putting on my tinfoil hat). I personally love the photo---you look freaking fantastic! Congrats Mama!

  2. I second what Sarah said - I'm pretty sure someone on your friends list had to have reported it! Kinda makes you wonder what kind of "friends" you've got, huh??

    Stupid. :( I think the pictures are awesome.

  3. Amy, just keep doing what you have always done. Fuck facebook. If you get rid of your profile, I will find you elsewhere. I love those photos, and you know me, I think the boobies should have been UNcovered! :-)

  4. If this is making someone mad then the ones from your naked cruise should have been reported a long time ago. this is showing you guys are very happy about being parents and there is NO boob in this one, but the ones from the cruise is a different story... haha I love you sis and you know that! <3 Arianna
