  1. Reblogged this on OUT of My Panties, Now!!! and commented:
    Women are being silenced, banned from internet media access, simply for stating that masculinity is a dominant social perception over femininity. Basically, for saying our society values men more than women. This is not a new concept. And it is, in fact, an accurate statement. “Gender Equality” would not be a global issue if women were, in fact, considered equal to men. If we cannot say “Women are not yet equal to men and we live under a social system which oppresses us in many ways” then how will we ever address this inequality? How will we ever be liberated from it? Maybe we won’t. Maybe that is what the male-dominated media and technology industries want – they want men to dominate women.

  2. Could we also get a screen shot of the 30-day ban, I’m curious to know FB language when they hand those out. Cuz I’ve notified FB of violent males and FB did nothing. It’s so frustrating this silencing on females but not males. Thank you

  3. The Jeffreys quotation above could be offensive only to male supremacists. And they have control of Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, etc. They may not censor everything we say, but they are showing us that, when they feel like it, they can and will. It’s a show of muscle.
