Meta Oversight Board Takes Issue With Nudity Policy Because It Makes ‘A Distinction Between Male And Female Bodies’

Facebook’s Oversight Board is taking issue with the social media platform’s nudity policy.

The problem? The policy makes “a distinction between male and female bodies.”

In a county flooded with wokeness, this kind of situation was always inevitable. But now the Board is calling for more inclusive rules on adult nudity.

From Engadget:

Meta’s Oversight Board has overruled the company’s takedowns of two Instagram posts showing a transgender and non-binary couple with bare chests and covered nipples. One of the images was posted in 2021 and the other last year. In the captions, the couple discussed trans healthcare. The posts noted that one of them planned to undergo gender-affirming surgery to create a flatter chest and that the duo was fundraising to pay for the procedure. …

The Oversight Board overruled Meta’s original takedown decisions. It determined that the removal of the images was not in line with the company’s “community standards, values or human rights responsibilities” and that the cases underline core issues with Meta’s policies.

Now this is how Facebook’s Oversight Board puts it:

This policy is based on a binary view of gender and a distinction between male and female bodies. Such an approach makes it unclear how the rules apply to intersex, non-binary and transgender people, and requires reviewers to make rapid and subjective assessments of sex and gender, which is not practical when moderating content at scale.

What this all comes down to is big tech worrying and debating over whether humans are capable of determining between men and females. 

How all this relates to Facebook’s ongoing nudity problem is far beyond the point. As wokeness has clearly devoured the social media tech giant and its so-called Oversight Board so much that the two entities are simply overlooking the root problem; nudity online.

Nothing about any of this should be controversial, but alas, here we are.

“We welcome the board’s decision in this case. We had reinstated this content prior to the decision, recognizing that it should not have been taken down,” a Meta spokesperson told Engadget. “We are constantly evaluating our policies to help make our platforms safer for everyone. We know more can be done to support the LGBTQ+ community, and that means working with experts and LGBTQ+ advocacy organizations on a range of issues and product improvements.”
