Does Facebook Hate Women?
In an algorithmically-driven landscape, what gets censored and what doesn’t is decided with a machete and not a scalpel. Broad choices of what is publicly visible are enforced with little or no attention to context or intent. Nudity—bad. Breastfeeding mothers—bad. (Well, there is a codicil to this one: it’s bad only if nipples are showing. And what else did we think was going on in this image?) A comic photo of a toddler girl wearing a t shirt that says “Rape Me in the Shitter”—well, we don’t love it, guys, but, hey: First Amendment! It stays!
