Remove Pro Sexual Violence Pages - "Humor" or "Satire" Labels Aren't Enough

In the recent months Facebook has been repeatedly asked to remove the Pro Rape pages on their site. In early November, Facebook finally agreed -

Unfortunately, Facebook STILL has Pro Rape and Pro Violence Against Women pages on their site, but they are now labeled as "Humor" and "Satire".

Facebook agreed to remove it's Pro Rape pages and yet there are still pages on Facebook that are clearly in violation of it's Terms of Use and promote sexual violence/violence against women, but now they are labeled as "Humor" and "Satire". See below:

      I am sick and tired of seeing abusive, sexist, derogatory and sexually abusive comments and pages about women on fb that are allowed on thru some loophole. Its degrading and wrong. Alot of women have been victims of sexual violence, we deserve better than this. How would male victims of sexual viloence feel if they had to see this nasty stuff constantly?

      I was once raped, 30 years later, my daughter was raped, no prosecutions were brought because we couldn't face the ordeal of a trial, where the victim is usually put on trial too Now I have granddaughters. Must they face the same possibility? Labels like 'humour' and 'satire' make the act appear acceptable. IT'S NOT, so don't condone it in ANY way.
