Well, didn’t take long for this to happen!
The Facebook Look Back video protesting censorship was censored on Youtube. The irony!
It was not removed for violence, but for “nudity or sexual content.”
Thanks for helping to prove my point, Youtube! The other YNA videos on the channel which feature the same type of artistic nudity have been there with no problems for a long time. I’ve appealed and anticipate them restoring it.
This is Youtube’s policy on Sex & Nudity (the inseparable pair) :
"Most nudity is not allowed, particularly if it is in a sexual context. Generally if a video is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for YouTube. There are exceptions for some educational, documentary, scientific, and artistic content, but only if that is the sole purpose of the video and it is not gratuitously graphic. For example, a documentary on breast cancer would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the documentary might not be."
Gratuitous or sexual this nudity is not. It is definitely artistic content, in the purpose of the entire video and the photos themselves.
So until YouTube responds, check it out now on Vimeo!
Facebook Look Back parody - a history of Facebook banning my shit.
You’ve probably seen them pop up in your news feed - those sappy Facebook Look Back videos. Well it had to be done…here’s a parody showing Facebook banning my shit!
Facebook has recently tried to close down the popular Anarchist Memes page on its site in the latest of a string of crackdowns on political online activism. Itâs just one more example of the social mediaâ¦
As Nolton points out, Facebook has demonstrated startling double standards in what it chooses to remove, leaving blatantly racist and white supremacist pages untouched, and allowing misogyny to remain rife and entrenched in Facebook culture. Photos of beaten women and violent death and rape threats permeate the network often under some warped conception of humour and free speech. This, of course, is not to mention the absurd amounts of corporate sexist propaganda that women regularly get bombarded with every time they read through their Facebook news feed…You might say that political activists should just go somewhere else. And increasingly, in a post-Snowden digital world, people are. But with a user-base of over a billion people, Facebook holds a privileged position as a space of public opinion. What is and is not allowed within that space therefore matters.”
Facebook removes mastectomy photos because there’s still another boob with a nipple, on a person that is presumed to have a vagina.
This hurts breast cancer survivors. This hurts people who are trying to support and empower women with breast cancer. This hurts women who are already feeling ashamed of their bodies. This hurts women.
