Some down. A long way to go. (Trigger warning)

Report_ I like her brainsOn May 25, shortly after I posted “I’m confused Facebook….”, Facebook took down the “tape her at rape her” image for which I was temporarily blocked after I posted it with a link to the open letter (demanding “swift, comprehensive and effective action addressing the representation of rape and domestic violence on Facebook),”  on my AmazingWomenRock Facebook page.

In fact, Facebook went one step further and took down the entire Offensive Humor at its Best page, on which the original image (as well as the one at right) had appeared since February.

Facebook has also removed many of the images depicting, inciting, and legitmizing violence against women that were originally identified in the open letter created by  Women, Action, & Media (WAM), The Everyday Sexism Project and writer/activist Soraya Chemaly. 

Thank you Facebook, for removing those images. Continue reading

Oops!

Today is Day 2 of Susan’s Last 10 Days in May Magic Bullet Muffin & Fat Back Buster UnDiet & Weight Release Thing, and it’s almost Day 3 already!

(Someone organized would have done all the posts in advanced and scheduled them. But no, not me. Flying by the seat of my pants as usual :-))

It’s  still raining, and I’m still busy. Not much news, other than I have been unblocked at Facebook, and will soon blog about the block.)  Meanwhile, back to the 10-Day Thing… Continue reading
