The following are actual pages on Facebook: ”Raping your mates girlfriend to see if she can put up a fight”, “Kicking Sluts in the Vagina,” “I know a silly little bitch that needs a good slap,” and “Riding your Girlfriend softly, Cause you dont want to wake her up.” These clearly are in violation of Facebook’s own policies and need to be removed.
Facebook’s own Terms of Service prohibit content that is “hateful, threatening,” or contains “graphic or gratuitous violence” Moreover, users are specifically barred from posting content that aims to “bully, intimidate, or harass” any user.
Facebook could and should do more to stop them from popping up in the first place and to swiftly remove those that do exist. First, Facebook needs to clarify that pages that encourage or condone rape —like the ones mentioned above— are in violation of their existing standards. Secondly, they need to make a statement that all pages that describe sexual violence in a threatening way will be immediately taken down upon being reported. Finally, Facebook must include specific language in their Terms of Service that make it clear that pages promoting any form of sexual violence will be banned.
Demand that Facebook took a stronger stand in enforcing its own policies and stop promoting rape and rape culture.
After a brief search it seems all but the latter - Riding your girlfriend softly, cause you don’t want to wake her - have been taken down. I cannot believe it has over 86,000 likes.
I just do not get the misanthropy of Ann Coulter — it one thing to be a fervent believer in the death penalty (though I do not understand Christians who brand themselves “pro-life” advocating for it), but this is just spurting of pure hatred.
