If you thought Tumblr’s ‘no nudity’ rule was bullshit, y’all better hold your nose while reading Facebook new policies which ban users from mentioning if they’re top or bottom. Or asking for nudes. Or pretty much anything that doesn’t involve wearing a turtleneck and permanently talking like there are children in the room.
The nudity-nazis enforced that discussion of ‘sexual preference’ and even your ‘state of arousal’ was banned; so no more telling your friends list that you’re horny af. In a move to remove anything that “facilitates, encourages or coordinates sexual encounters between adults” and bars “sexually explicit language that may lead to solicitation.”
Their policy reads:
“Do not post content that engages in implicit sexual solicitation, which can be identified by… using sexual hints such as mentioning sexual roles, sex positions, fetish scenarios, sexual preference/sexual partner preference, state of arousal, act of sexual intercourse or activity (sexual penetration or self-pleasuring), commonly sexualized areas of the body such as the breasts, groin, or buttocks, state of hygiene of genitalia or buttocks.”
The internet is obviously like wtf?
Facebook’s updated community standards are fucking WILD! Stating your sexual orientation is now literally against the rules and is seen as solicitation.
Also butts are not ok anymore either.

Apparently, the change was made”
“In large part, by conversations with our content reviewers, who told us that the sexual exploitation policy did not adequately distinguish between exploitation… and solicitation.”
Well, unless your content reviewers are on my damn friends list, what the fuck has it gotta do with them? This really makes zero sense.
As we recently reported, Facebook – along with Tumblr – is just one of the social networks that repeatedly suppresses the sexualities and bodies of LGBTQ+ people.
