Sluts spotted in - Facebook

These are not my words by the way, but if you are on Facebook, search for sluts spotted in Birmingham. I cannot believe Facebook are okay with this type of vile, misogynistic 'slut-shaming'. I am horrified and worried about the effect this could have vulnerable girls and the fact that young people feel that this type of blatant bullying is acceptable. Also, nearly 6,000 actually like it.

Am I over-reacting?

I'd rather not look.

Yanbu, There is one for my area too. I was mortified by that but even more so yesterday when a 'rate your shag' page popped up on my time line. This is also in my area and people are tagging others in posts with ratings 1-10. Its disgusting Shock

I don't know how to report the page. I am so annoyed about it and angry that young people think it's a laugh.

Just out of curiosity has anyone had a page/video etc removed from Facebook? I reported a video last week which was on my timeline after someone had commented on it. It was horrendous of 3 people being brutally murdered and set on fire, it was not in the uk and it was like the whole village had gathered to touture these poor souls. Anyhow I recieved a message back from Facebook stating that they had looked at the video and it did not contain graphic violence as I had reported so it would remain as it was not going agains terms and conditions. I was utter shocked with the response I got back and now Ive pretty much hid everyone (apart from family) from my timeline as I never want to be faced with stuff like that again.

I didnt watch the video btw but had to click on the page to 'report' it then I paused it and read others comments.


HoHoHoNoYouDont · 28/05/2013 13:17

Crow I recall a thread about that. I can't believe FB didn't take it down.


NeoMaxiZoomDweebie · 28/05/2013 13:18 strikes me that these are online versions of the mean and sexist graffiti that used to pop up when I was growing up in the 80s. The comments on the Sluts i Birmingham page are short and graffiti like.

"Tina Smith is a slag" and "Becky Baines will go with anything for a fiver" type of things. That's not new I suppose...the thing is that these comments can't be wiped off with bleach or painted over can they.

Tweet it. #FBRape

It's a campaign against the pages FB let's stand that are anti-women or promote violence. They are targeting the advertisers to get them to pull their ads to get FB to listen.


ICBINEG · 28/05/2013 13:18

Won't be looking, and YANBU...but the rate my shag that men and women? Might not be as awful if it is equal opportunities...


NeoMaxiZoomDweebie · 28/05/2013 13:21

Spotted Uks Biggest Sluts/slags/players just began yesterday and I have reported them for hate speech...then theres the option to say it's gender based.


squeakytoy · 28/05/2013 14:47

how can it be reported for "hate" speech, when women voluntarily do such things as go on a "slut walk".. Confused


NeoMaxiZoomDweebie · 28/05/2013 14:56

Squeaky it is similar to black people reclaiming the N word. The Slut Walk was controversial and not all feminists agree with it's ethos. cannot disclaim the fact that these FB pages are FULL of hate speech because Slut is not the only hateful thing said on them.


NeoMaxiZoomDweebie · 28/05/2013 14:57

Some women going on a protest and calling it a Slut Walk does not totally remove Slut as a hateful word. It is all about context.
