Gender Identity Watch Facebook's page was removed yesterday for "hate speech or symbols". No specific example of either was given by Facebook.
Response from Pathetic Fallacies
"Porn is okay.
MRA groups are okay.
Misogyny is okay.
Blatant racism is okay.
Critical thinking is bad.
Pro-female groups are bad.
One of the only redeeming pages on FB, that I’m aware of, was Gender Identity Watch. No bullshit, pro-woman, interesting, intelligent content.
However, Facebook, in its infinite wisdom, has banned Gender Identity Watch for refusing to cater to the super-special feelings of men, misogynists, and those who think feminism is one big “Kumbaya” sing along.
If you don’t like that this page has been unpublished, if this pisses you off (and it should), do what you can to come down hard on Facebook for removing the page. Social media, especially Facebook, is flooded with violently misogynist content, and yet this page — for and about women — was unpublished. Think about that.
These are Orwellian times, sisters."

"This is not a hate page. No one here hates you if you don't conform to gender. We support the abolition of gender, as gender is a tool of oppression (femininity) used against women."
UPDATE: New page has also been removed.
"This is the fourth time that Facebook has censored Dublin SaysNo.
The last time they said it was a mistake. When they put the page back online it had a reach of 300 before they censored it, it had a reach of half a million.
It's not surprising after starting the meter protests in Dublin 9 weeks ago and watch as they have spiraled to a national level that they would again come after us.
We have continued to support everyone protesting and used our page to get everyone's story out there as the media has been bought and sold by Government sympathizers.
While Facebook blocks pages that stand up to corrupt Governments they actively help and accept money that is used to grow pages that contain, Bestiality, child porn, extreme violence, bullying etc.
Facebook is dead.
Dublin says no will not be silenced.
Dublin says no is not about a page. Dublin says no is about the people who refuse to give up the fight for their future and their children's future."

"It's time to test Facebook's new breastfeeding policy. Facebook: You say you allow breastfeeding mothers to share their photos without cropping out their nipples? Prove it. Let this stay up and see how many thousands of people see it and share it.
We are proud to nourish our babies with our breasts and we will not be shamed for it. We will share our special/difficult/funny/priceless breastfeeding moments with our friends, families, and community and we
will not to told to keep them to ourselves. Enough with the shaming of women. We are mothers and we are strong. We are equal.
Read more about the policy change on Soraya Chemaly's article on The Huffington Post."
