Are you serious? Facebook is attempting to censor a woman who recently posted pictures opposing the movement to allow men into women’s bathrooms. Apparently some angry Facebook-ers falsely reported her post for “nudity”, and Facebook agreed.
Kristi Merritt of Lakewood, Washington, dressed up in a series of costumes to prove her point that no matter what or who she dressed up like, she will never actually be a what she appears to be in the photos.
One photo shows Merritt dressed up like a pirate, holding a sign that reads, “Does this make me a pirate?” Another photo shows Merritt wearing a sombrero and holding a Corona and a sign that states, “Does this make me a Mexican?” In another photo, Merritt wore a Russell Wilson Seattle Seahawks jersey while holding a football and a football helmet along with a sign that asks, “Does this make me Russell Wilson?”
Merritt posted another photo showing a dress, purse and high-heel shoes laid out on the floor next to signs that read, “Then how can this make a man into a woman?”
Merritt, whose state enacted statewide regulations making it illegal to prohibit transgender individuals from using public bathrooms and other changing areas for the opposite biological sex last December, posted a political message along with the series of photos.
“A man in women’s clothes does not make him a woman,” Merritt wrote. “Men should not get to be in our bathrooms or lockers!”
“Facebook is trying to make me remove this post, they are saying it has nudity in it. Here’s what’s happening. The people who want to censor me are reporting it as having nudity when clearly it does not,” Merritt wrote in her April 16 update.
She is contesting this ban and censoring, but we shall see what happens. What do you think about this? Is Facebook in the right? We would love to hear your heart on the situation!
