facebook: Stop the victim-blaming and slut-shaming!

On Facebook, I came across a page entitled "Shits slut never say", the URL to which is here ---> http://www.facebook.com/pages/Shit-Sluts-Never-Say/434179573312712?fref=ts. This is extremely problematic and offensive. Who are the page administrator(s) and Facebook users who liked the page to discriminate against women (as the page is specifically targeted towards female "sluts")? This page is a set-back for the sexual freedom of women. Not only this, but it promotes the idea that someone who is sexually active and open about it will not say "no" to sexual activity. Obviously, this is extremely problematic; it sends impressionable people the idea that sexually confident women always "want it", and statements like this will increase the lack of validation for sexually active and confident women who are raped or sexually assaulted. The page plainly states that sexually confident women "lack respect for themselves", among other comments. The page also uses the image of a woman in her underwear as a display photograph, for which, quite obviously, permission from the woman in the photo has not been gained. The page itself is incredibly offensive, and my aim is to force Facebook to take it down.
