Hi mums,

Posted this on the BF board yesterday and while it's got a lot of attention someone's suggested it needs the might of the mighty AIBU...

Facebook are thus far refusing to take down this hateful and incredibly hurtful page. Please go to the page (don't scroll down - it's disgusting) and report immediately. When you get the notification from FB that "We reviewed the page you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards.", you can leave feedback, and tell them that they are very clearly wrong. Thanks!

I don't do fb, but get the idea from the link to the other thread. I have also signed the petition, using the link on p.4 of the thread.

A fire needs oxygen, this is not even credible as a idea and you are fuelling it by advertising it, I'll wait for the MP who support this before getting het up over a FB page.

had a look on facebook but couldn't find it. Are you sure it exists?

redexpat Sun 04-May-14 07:55:58

I can't find it either.

FreeSpirit89 Sun 04-May-14 08:19:23

Me can't find it either. Link please?

MiaSparrow Sun 04-May-14 08:35:09

Sorry - here

missingmum - of course, but this is about the depraved (and actually illegal) content of the page and the fact that Facebook are refusing to take it down.

PitchSlapped Sun 04-May-14 08:38:26

Yeah so I scrolled down and now I feel sick... DO NOT SCROLL THAT PAGE

MiaSparrow Sun 04-May-14 08:41:43

I did warn you. We need to do something, right? Please remember to leave feedback saying why you think FB's decision is wrong once you've reported.

It's obviously a really stupid joke.. Just ignore them and hope it goes away. You don't have to go on there and there's no way anything more will come of it. Doubt they are even a real activist group. Agree fb is very relaxed about what it tolerates on there.

They will be loving the moral outrage. Ignore them.

MorrisZapp Sun 04-May-14 08:45:08

Ignore it. Whatever it is, they want an outraged reaction. Don't give them any oxygen.

MiaSparrow Sun 04-May-14 08:45:09

midnight I wouldn't want my child's image next to an image of Ian Watkins in a "joke". Somebody's is. sad

Report it as hate speech, it's targeting a gender.

Then surely all eating in public should be criminalised? That's all it is. Feeding. Yes it's from a breast but that's just the container. Why not plates or bowls? That's why this page is ludicrous.

Peacocklady Sun 04-May-14 09:05:51

That's just so stupid it's beyond ridiculous. No one would take that seriously surely? It's just a cheap childish shot. It's a parody of anti breast feeding.
I feel sorry of the woman with dreadlocks though who apparently won't give bjs, she's had another caption on her that I've seen that says "won't eat non-organic food but takes acid from a stranger". Poor woman's had loads of stuff attributed to her because she happens to look a bit of a hippy. I'd love to know what she really thinks!

MiaSparrow Sun 04-May-14 09:10:23

Bragmatic this isn't moral outrage - it's just about putting something right. Facebook have removed hundreds of images of mothers breastfeeding for being "inappropriate", but apparently this is OK.

Quite clearly the owners of this page are some very confused individuals - pond life, who usually, yes, you can ignore, but my issue is with Facebook's acceptance of it, and that is very wrong.

exbrummie Sun 04-May-14 09:16:47

I reported it and got the same response that they won't remove it,so left feedback telling them why this was wrong.
Hopefulyy if they get enough complaints they will have to rethink(although I doubt it)
This page is vile.

Cooroo Sun 04-May-14 09:27:07

It is vile. It is also created and run by a disturbed and inarticulate young man with major issues. I'd love to get him some therapy but neither me nor Facebook can do that.

I'm really sad he's out there. But I think his arguments are so ridiculous and pathetic they won't influence anyone. He'll think of something else to rant about soon and the nasty page will die out.

Cheby Sun 04-May-14 09:43:45

I've reported. My first thought was to ignore because its obviously a joke page but the content is vile so I've reported for that reason.

Hazchem Sun 04-May-14 09:51:38

I've reported. Had a response and wrote back a complaint. It's vile.

AramintaDeWinter Sun 04-May-14 09:52:09

I've reported and left feedback.
Yes this is an entirely sweeping statement, but I suspect there is a misogynistic view that permeates right through FB.

Brummiegirl15 Sun 04-May-14 09:58:19

Reported.
Disgusting vile page

softlysoftly Sun 04-May-14 09:59:31

It's clearly a wind up. You are feeding the troll.
