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?

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.

horrible....it 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.

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. however...you cannot disclaim the fact that these FB pages are FULL of hate speech because Slut is not the only hateful thing said on them.
