Remove Beauty Contests from Facebook!

    1. Petition by

      Stop Cyberbullying!

This is an extremely important issue that needs to be dealt with. While these events may seem like harmless fun to some, these events are full of trolls and haters that leave extremely hateful comments on some peoples pictures. Now while some people think nothing of these hateful comments, others are really affected by hateful comments. We need to STOP this act of Cyberbullying NOW! This has become FAR too widespread. Facebook is NOT the place for these Beauty Contests and events and as such, we are asking for the REMOVAL of all of them.

      Yes, I know it's going to make it harder for us to achieve it, but anything is possible! The more support we can get on this thing, the more likely Facebook is to catch notice of this and hear our cries and ban these events! :)

      Because everyone is beautiful, in their own way.

      Because it is absolutely degrading. Seeing so many of the comments on those pictures just disgust me. You can't be perfect to anyone on the internet, no matter how hard you try. I would never want to see anything like that written about me. There's a lot of comments saying how "Oh I'd fuck her" from guys or "He's so disgusting" from girls. I don't care who you think you are, you don't say that and I don't think anyone should be given an option any longer. I can't wait to see the day when no one cares about looks anymore and when everyone can actually play nice instead of being self-righteous douchebags.

      Cyberbullying has gone much too far for us to all sit around and not do a thing.

      This is a serious issue that needs to be delt with.

      In its most extreme form, cyber bullying causes low-self esteem, depression and even suicide.

      Why are we continuing to let this happen?

      Why are we continuing to let 'beauty contests' appear on facebook and 'trolls' abuse and humiliate the people entering them.
