This beautiful article points out what’s wrong with society and Facebook in particular in regards nudity
“YES, THIS IS MY FEMALE BODY. NO I AM NOT ASHAMED
Celebration of the beautiful – natural, naked – woman body”
got reported to Facebook security.
The next time I tried to lock into my account I could not.
Instead I was a given a warning from Facebook.
“Remove any violating photos” It said.
Either you delete all photos containing any nudity, or we will delete your Facebook account.
I knew it was a matter of time before my photos would be reported.
(Photos to be found at the end of this blog post)
I know Facebooks guidelines concerning nudity. I know many artists whom in the past have been trying to share their work (photos, videos etc) of the naked human body with their network on Facebook – but with same result as my attempt had.
A couple of years ago the Danish writer Peter Øvig Knudsen tried to share his photos from his book: “Hippie 1 – Tre år og 74 dage der forandrede Danmark” (three years and 74 days that changed Denmark)
Øvig is in his book describing and telling the story about the Thy camp in Denmark in the 1970th (https://oevig.net/hippie-1-three-years-and-74-days-that-changed-denmark/) – and the hippie days in Denmark during that time.
His book contains a fiew photos. Humans from the Thy camp and their every day life. Human with – and without – clothes on.
But Facebook said no. And so did apple, for that sake.
Apple denied to sell Øvigs book.”

So sad that Apple and Facebook are the means by which we can so ‘easily’ connect with the world. A pity about their obsession with the look of the human body.
Indeed and they are interwoven with life these days so therefore they have a huge impact on peoples perceptions… 😦
