Oops I did it again. This week Facebook blocked me for 24 hours. This is their version of sending you to the corner for being a very naughty boy. Apparently, some fucktard reported a certain photo which I uploaded to my fan page resulting in the gods at Facebook thinking that I am a “pornographer”. Don’t get me wrong, I love my porn just as much as the next fag, but there’s a time and a place for porn and Facebook is not the place for it. Besides who goes onto Facebook armed with lube and tissues ready to molest themselves? Not me, that’s why we have Tumblr. But I digress…
As you know I have made some enemies through the couple of years that I have been blogging (3 years to be exact). Having enemies and people who hate you isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I take it as a sign that I am doing something right and sometimes their hate mails are seriously funny, especially the ones that like quoting Leviticus. But every so often one of those people does something that seriously inconveniences me. Sometimes they report me to Facebook and on occasion I am punished for it like the dirty bad boy that I am. In the last 3 years I have been banned from Facebook twice, have been blocked 7 times and even received an email from Facebook accusing me of Hate Speech.
Now we all know there are some seriously fucked up people on Facebook and I have blogged about this before. Those folks who are offended by the world, lives in a bubble of ignorance and waves around their intolerance as if it is an Olympic event. It really is a pity that their profiles don’t come with a mandatory idiot warning and that there isn’t a Facebook app that can block them outright. But the world needs idiots and whether we like it or not – they are here to stay. Besides if there weren’t any idiots who would we laugh at?
With my latest incident on Facebook I have come to the conclusion that maybe some folks need to download themselves a sense of humor. Because whoever got offended by a naked man’s butt cheeks and is incapable of thinking that the “offensive” picture is funny needs to go on some strong medication. Have these people not seen some of the really nasty shit other people upload to Facebook?
I have blocked and banned so many people from my one Facebook group because of the stuff they post there. I have had to report and delete hundreds of pictures of cocks, cum, fisting, water sports, vaginas, and stuff people like to shove up their assholes. I didn’t see those people get blocked or banned from Facebook. Could it be that Facebook have a problem with pictures that are not hardcore enough? If the man had a dildo hanging from his rectum would that have been ok? One can only wonder.
The previous time Facebook gave me a timeout was because of a picture I uploaded of nuns painting a naked man. Again the only thing you could see was his very nice and tight ass. That too “offended” someone so much that they just could help themselves but to report it. I wonder whether that person did it before or after they masturbated. It seems that Facebook has double standards and that some on Facebook, especially heterosexuals Christians, are more equal than others. Since I created my Fan page I have encountered numerous problems due to people reporting my page. The culprits were mostly the fanatical religious far right. The same people who also have fan pages devoted to their anti-gay rhetoric and dire tripe. The same people who propose that all homosexuals should be killed and that we are abominations. Yet these people are allowed to preach their hate on Facebook and that seems to be ok.
The world seems to be filled with double standards especially when it comes to gay people, so why should Facebook be any different? With over 8000 likes on my fan page and with over 700 people having shared the picture that got me blocked for 24 hours, I couldn’t help but wonder whether we are being picked on. It’s not my fault the photo went viral. It’s not my fault it was fucking funny. Did the person at Facebook who ultimately decided to block me not use his/her discretion and realize this was a malicious report? Could that person not see the humor in it or was the decision to block me based on my fan page’s name and the fact that it is dedicated to LGBT news and issues. Was that person homophobic? Who knows…
One thing is for sure – I will not lose sleep over this. This queer has more important things to worry about other than scared little homophobes trolling Facebook trying to take out one homosexual at a time by maliciously reporting them. If that is the only thing that gives them pleasure in their sad little lives then who am I to take it away from them. I will much rather focus my attention on what is really important: Recruiting homosexuals to ensure that Queer HQ is prepared and well resourced for our end game – Taking Over The World! Suck on that Homophobes!
So Facebook thinks I am a pornographer, who the fuck cares. I don’t know what type of porn they are watching or downloading but something gives me the idea that they are doing it wrong. At least my 24 hour ban is over and all is back to normal. As for the person who reported me, I have three words for you: Go. Fuck. Yourself. Just try not to do it in front of a mirror; we don’t want you to offend yourself now do we.
Till next time.
