Facebook Take Down the posts that do not represent New Zealand Women
I am sick of reporting serious pornography to Facebook & having them do nothing.When I searched #NewZealander after using it in a news post I was upset to see far too many posts that violated standards, including bare bottoms & nearly bare busts appear in sexual poses. (I have reported many photos before to Facebook that appear on normal pages that are really graphic & they don't take those down either). Something is wrong here.It is not too much to ask Facebook to have standards & stand by their own community standards.I have messaged the creators of this page - & received a completely inappropriate response which included their view that if women are objectified & 'dated' there might be "less rapists & serial killers." Their response included that I (a happily married woman) should give people a chance to date me. They also suggested that if women are not objectified all men will be Gay - is that what I want? For a better society, we need to show kids that girls & women are valuable on the INSIDE by making companies like Facebook accountable.The posts are pornographic & Hash Tagged inappropriately. Facebook is happy to violate its own community standards all the time, these inappropriate, posts are not even the worst I have seen that Facebook have not removed. Under the #NewZealander tag - as you scroll through the feed, there are more than 4 photos of fully exposed buttocks, which violate Facebook's own terms. (The photos are mixed in with more normal shots).These - many posts are objectifying & I object that they are tagged with the word #NewZealander as if that represents women in our country.This is the page responsible:https://www.facebook.com/bfwglobal/?hc_ref=SEARCHThe photos in the search for the Hash Tag #NewZealander are not appropriate or representative of how New Zealand women want to be portrayed. The more you scroll when searching for this # tag - the more photos there are & the more nude they are. This is embarrassing & horrible for International countries to see - you would expect to see something a lot more befitting & nothing sexual when searching for this tag.It sure seems that everywhere we turn there is more & more information teaching young men that women should be objectified - this is hurting our country. Tell Facebook NO we do not want New Zealand women tagged in this way. New Zealander is a word we can hope to be proud of.When a woman is beautiful many aspects make up that beauty - showing a bare bottom & bust looming at the camera - for the world to see & being overtly sexual is not necessary...I do wish that this women that has posed only knew her true value & how beautiful her potential really is on the Inside.I am all for fashion & love shorts, dresses & have no problem with slim fitting clothes, or even showing a cleavage, or wearing sports gear. I don't even think twice about lingerie on bill boards if it is tastefully photographed & modeled, so you can see what is on sale & see new designs & colours/trends.But there is a BIG difference between that & bare bottoms, & many sexual poses & photographs being tagged in the way they have. It is pornographic & we should feel comfortable calling things for what they are rather than trying to minimise it & call it something it isn't. I don't want to see this kind of spam popping up when searching for New Zealand things. Kids (with their parents supervision) & young women & men should be able to be on Facebook & search for Hash Tags without thinking that a bottom in your face is what a New Zealander is...or aspires to be. Where is the clean culture at Facebook?These posts CLEARLY violate Facebooks own community terms, so why won't they take them down?Based on the response the page creators gave - the attitude behind the page creators is predatory. They should not be encouraged. There is a difference between someone posting their own photos & a page posting photos of bare bottoms.
An independent inquiry into this case needs to happen immediately so this NZ family do not have to stay in a third world country, to protect their little girl from a pedophile..
This NZ Child needs her rights to live in peace & safety upheld. She & her family have become refugees from New Zealand. #BringThemHomeNZ A little girl has been given a good home away from a parent/pedophile. However, a judge that said she herself was "not mentally fit" at the time, ruled grossly in favour of the pedophile & gave the pedophile access to this girl, the little girl was then further abused The NZ parents of this little girl have fled with her & their kids & are in hiding in a third world country - because they do not want her to be abused. They should not have further distress & risk their lives & safety in a third world country. Every child should live in safety in NZ. There is much more we can do to assist with this. Although the government has new initiatives to protect vulnerable children, that is not enough, no pedophile should have access to children & in this case - this family needs our help & an immediate inquiry. This family needs to know they can safely return to NZ without distress or access by the pedohpile to the child.Scroll down to 'Read The Letter' to the government. (In Red). The justice system needs to change concerning not only this case but all cases of abuse by family members & stop access by pedophiles to children at risk. There can be no way that a parent/pedophile can be allowed to have access to kids - why risk children's lives & well being it is not okay. This family needs protection, the hunt for them needs to be immediately revoked & the pedophile given no access to this child or any other children. This family needs to know they can live in peace & safety in NZ.

You will be helping not only this family but other children locked into abuse in their home, that are too small & too shocked to help themselves. Real change starts with a few voices & grows. Pedophiles should not have access to children, NZ needs to send this message very clearly & to do what this family is asking - have an independent inquiry - so they can live in peace & give this little girl the home she deserves. This family is in a third world country - because her country has failed her, unless we act now & help them. Lets help this family & support an independent inquiry!
