Facebook Kills The New Anti-Gay Movement Page
Peace the F out to The New Anti-Gay Movement Page, the Facebook page whose mission read:
This page is for those of us against ALL gays, man and woman alike. Those of us who are tired of seeing them flaunt it like it is a badge of honor and acceptable. Spread it like wildfire. Suggest to all your friends.”
Lovely, we know.
The misguided administrator for the page had bragged, “By definition this page does not in any way or form count as ‘hate speech’. While there is a very thin line, this is on the proper side of it. It does not promote violence, intimidation, harassment or other misconducted [sic] actions. It exists solely as a point of view to be shared by others that share the same ideal. Our right to voice our feelings towards gays is no more in the wrong than your option to voice an opinion FOR it.”
That is, until Facebook thankfully removed the page from its site. FB’s term’s of service include the caveat, “You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.” How The New Anti-Gay Movement thought they were circumventing the hateful part is beyond us. Heck, it’s the first criteria listed!
In any case, good riddance!
