Tell Facebook to Send a Message That It Doesn't Tolerate Violence Against Women
Clearly, Facebook has its priorities very, very wrong. The company needs to spend less time sexualizing and demonizing breastfeeding and more time cracking down on content that seriously is offensive.
Simply shutting down the groups in question is not enough. The users themselves who create and/or join these groups need to have their Facebook privileges suspended.
Please tell Facebook that they need to be more aggressive in enforcing their own policies against these groups.
I am sure that you are aware of the many hateful groups and pages on Facebook right now. I am particularly upset about the alarming number of groups that promote violence against women.
Removing the offending groups and pages is only a quick, temporary fix. It is imperative that the users who create and join these hate groups have their Facebook privileges suspended or revoked.
Obviously, the current state of things is unacceptable. Stronger response to this hate speech is necessary. Mr. Zuckerberg, it is time for Facebook to send a clear message that it does not tolerate violence against women.
I look forward to hearing about how Facebook plans to address this issue from now on.
