God, I hate Facebook. Maybe it’s because they are constantly advertising sensible shoes and weight-loss supplements in my news feed. Maybe it’s because they are now charging users who want their friends to see their posts. Or maybe it’s because they actually allow the existence of a fanpage called “12 year old slut meme’s.”
The page was started in August of this year by two Australian
douchebags men who by their own description are “embarrassing those who embarrass themselves.” Their target: pre-teen girls who present themselves on Facebook in what these men regard to be an over-sexualized fashion.
Our intent in building this Facebook page was to bring to light the fact that many young girls under the age of consent are sexualising themselves in provocative photographs that they themselves post on their own Facebook pages to be seen by the world.Yes, we may have used language and content (publicly available content) that shocked many, that being said though; we did at least bring widespread attention to the issue.Some have condemned our actions as promoting teen pornography or worse. The media have misrepresented our actions and our message, many articles, (even reputable news sources) have provided completely fabricated information that has since been taken as fact. A word to these entities, get your fucking facts straight.We are two people who call it like we see it. We have made our point now and many people have agreed with us that these young girls are “not acting in their own best interests.”
“We find this Page distasteful, it does not currently violate our terms” because it “does not pose a material threat to anyone’s safety.”
