Topless no; headless yes?

Topless women aren’t allowed on Facebook. But bodiless heads now are.

Facebook is no longer removing videos or images of people being beheaded, even as they continue to ban women for posting pictures of them breastfeeding. But what’s going to scar you more — seeing a woman’s breast or seeing someone butchered before your eyes?

This move isn’t just stupid from a PR standpoint — it’s also horrifically irresponsible, giving access to this traumatic footage to anyone with a Facebook account. Please join us in urging Facebook to reverse its policy and ban photos and video of beheadings now.

PETITION TO FACEBOOK: News sites already spread the word about the horrors of mass beheadings. Posting photos and images of beheadings will only scar kids and exploit these people’s deaths — please resume the ban against them now.
