Remove the "12 Year Old Sluts" Page

According to Facebook's own Community Standards, bullying, harassment, threats of violence, and graphic content are not permitted. And yet, the page "12 Year Old Sluts" is allowed to continue spreading and promoting misogynist, violent, threatening content (mostly about children) under the guise of "Controversial Humor."

The creators of this page (two adult men) claim that they are merely trying to teach girls and parents a lesson about what's appropriate to post on the internet. While teaching kids internet safety is hugely important in the digital age, reposting photos of 12-year-old girls to inspire bullying and slut-shaming is NOT an acceptable way to have this conversation.

Content of this page includes admittedly ill-advised sexualized photos of teenaged girls and children with hundreds of comments calling them sluts, threatening to kill them, and suggesting that they kill themselves. Example comments include "Fucking disrespectful fat b****", "I'd tap that....with a truck full of highly explosives," "She needs a hug, around the neck, with a rope."

If Facebook takes harassment and threats of violence seriously, then they have to crack down on the "jokers" too. Sign this petition to encourage Facebook to block this content.

      An Ex-tenant sent me for years sadistic gangrape porns and was writing, all men should pee on women, because they are dirty garbage.

      We are living in a women hating culture!

      Pornographic Mainstream Media

      With the rise of pornographic imagery found within the United States mainstream media, one interested in human sexual behavior, thought process and sexual idealogies must ask what has caused this drastic shift? The past twenty, or even more drastically, the past five to ten years represent a drastic shift in social sexual norms. In the Reagan era obscenity laws were being applied to major pornographic producers and pornographic icons like Hustler's founder, Larry Flynt, were being prosecuted relentlessly by the government. Yet with the rise of widespread technological advances like cheap mass video production, handheld digital camcorders and most significantly the internet, pornography production, availability and viewership has dramatically increased. The government has shifted their focus to more important manners and even gone as far as to pass laws such as the Telecommunications Act of 1996 that helped to create an environment in which the pornographic has been accepted into mainstream media. This act allowed for media comapnies to form conglomerate monopolization of the mass media market. As companies like AT & T, Direct TV, Newscorp and Viacom fiscally benefit directly from offering pornographic material to their viewers, it is in their financial favor to advertise that material and make it more desirable and normalized in the mainstream market. What better place to influence your young MTV/BET market than in pop music videos? The imagery and camera techniques used to produce the formulaic booty video male hip-hop artists use to promote their music and masculine image is strikingly similar to pornography. The reduction of a woman to her parts in video imagery a technique borrowed from pronography, specifically her ass or her tits objectifies these video girls to nothing more than ass and tits. By repeating this hip-hop/pop video recipe over and over again, the pornographic mind of popular culture is changing. In addition to reducing a woman to only her body parts by focusing in with camera shots of only ass or tits, pop music videos also show a flock of girls caressing a single man (the pop or rap star), competing for his attention by performing hypersexualized stripper-inspired dance moves, women partying in hot tubs , by poolsides or washing cars, but most importantly, yearning for the approving male gaze and attention. Women are portrayed as overwhelmingly ravenous, desperate nymphomaniacs, sexual aggressors and dependent on men 1) financially and 2) for their own happiness. Most of the shots below from hip-hop star Nelly's infamous "Tip Drill" video reduce women to their ass or show them lusting after Nelly's attention in a hypersexualized frenzy, much as women are depicted in most mainstream pornography. Sexual objectification is the viewing of people solely as de-personalised objects of desire instead of as individuals with complex personalities and desires/plans of their own. This is done by speaking/thinking of women especially as only their bodies, either the whole body, or as fetishised body parts.

      Sexual attraction is not the same as sexual objectification: objectification only occurs when the individuality of the desired person is not acknowledged. Pornography, prostitution, sexual harassment and the representation of women in mass media and art are all examples of common sexual objectification.

      The concept of objectification owes much to the work of Simone de Beauvoir regarding the basic dualism of human consciousness between the Self and the Other: the general mental process where humans classify the world into ‘us’ and ‘them’. Women are universally viewed as the Other across all cultures, a role which is both externally imposed and internalised, and which means that women are generally not truly regarded as fully human. An important point of de Beauvoir’s was that this Othering effect is the same whether women are viewed as wholly inferior or if femininity is viewed as mysterious and morally superior: Otherness and full equality cannot coexist.

      I'm just going to re-quote Diane Hill who nailed it on the head when she said "That FB even questions whether this is harassment or humor speaks volumes about how much misogyny rules our culture."

      There is definitely nothing humorous about these kinds of postings on Facebook or anywhere else on social media. We have to put a stop to this to protect our children before we lose another child to suicide.

      I have an 11 year old daughter ... there are better ways to teach her (and me) about internet safety. These two "adult" men need to give their heads a shake.
