Facebook ’em

Gotta love social networking. It’s given us such important powers and privileges that we could never imagine living without. Consider what life would be like without bathroom photos of underage women who forget to flush the toilet behind their half nude bodies, things to stick captions on and render immortal as their fed to “FFFFFFFF” guy and Pedo Bear, and every horrible person you hoped to get away from after high school now able to stalk you.

I’m cynical perhaps. But with all these astonishing blessings, Facebook just happened to find another group of people to give an “extra special” privilege to.

Being banned for having pics up of a FtM’s post-operative chest on your account.

This story is blowing up across various blogs, but as near as I can tell comes first from VUE out of Edmonton. They report on the account ban against Dominic Scaia, after he posted pics of his naked chest on his profile. Anyone who’s even glanced at social network will know this is par for the course. Except, being a transsexual man, apparently, he still has a woman’s breasts according to Facebook’s moderators. Nevermind the expensive, painful, surgery he endured to remove them, they’re still there, no matter what, in the eyes of the “ew, ew, ew” crowd.

That alone is a kick in the teeth, but I ask another question. What makes all breasts pornographic anyway? Why can’t it be like the difference between, say, potential and kinetic energy? You know, tits at rest are potentially porn, but tits covered in chocolate and having the nips pulled between someone’s teeth are at “pornographic escape velocity”.

Facebook Fail: “Killing your hooker so you don’t have to pay her”

It has come to our attention that there is a rapidly growing facebook group called “Killing your hooker so you don’t have to pay her,” made up of over 16,000 individuals who I can only assume find the idea of dead sex workers hilarious.

Here at SiP we love sex workers, and we think this joke of a group is wrong, unfunny, and downright cheap. So we urge those of you with a facebook account (or hell, just create one) to report this group for being threatening and abusive- just go to the link above and you will find a tiny “Report Page” button on the lower left side.

Side fail: Quote from the group page: “Ever stab your hooker with a blunt object to add insult to injury”… stabbing with a blunt object? Come on…
