The Censorship of Sex Positive Facebook Gets Attention

I am proud and pleasantly surprised at the growing attention on Facebook's unfair censorship. The Self Serve page was disabled, Violet Blue's Our Porn, Ourselves Page was disabled, and now folks are talking about it on Jezebel, Carnal Nation and even in Psychology Today's blog.

I was just thinking how Matie and I didn't mean to raise this issue. People use facebook everyday to discuss life, relationships, culture and share it with their friends and communities. That includes talking about soccer, politics, music and yes -- sex. The freedom to do so, even on privately owned Facebook, is critical. Paying attention to who gets shut down and who doesn't is key.

When will images of the bodies we all have not be considered obscene?
