Facebook: Stop Pandering to Homophobes! (VICTORY)


UPDATE (1/22/13): Facebook has restored this photo & restored the page adminisrator's access to Facebook. The official response was this: "Our dedicated User Operations team reviews millions of pieces of this content a day to help keep Facebook safe for all. Our policies are enforced by a team of reviewers in several offices across the globe. This team looks at hundreds of thousands of reports every week, and as you might expect, occasionally, we make a mistake and block a piece of content we shouldn’t have."


Facebook removed this wedding photo of a same-sex couple stating that it "violates facebook policies & community standards" - this is atrocious discrimination! Not only that, it blocked the page administrator of Gay Marriage USA (where the photo was featured) from posting on Facebook for 7 days. Facebook took this oppressive action because an anti-gay, anti-equality individual "reported" the photo.

Demand that Facebook:

(1) stop pandering to homophobes & their false complaints

(2) republish the photo that was unjustly removed

(3) reinstate the posting ability of GMUSA's page administrator! (294,000)
