Facebook Ads Rejected This Lesbian Kiss – User Error Or Gay Discrimination?

Oh Facebook. First you censor a photo of two men kissing and now you’ve rejected an ad showing two women with their tongues touching. Meanwhile, profile pics of dongs visible through underwear—still totally OK.

The picture in question comes from the Greek film Attenberg (trailer NSFW). And though it’s ridiculously easy to get Facebook to ban any content users find offensive, in this case the image remains on the film’s Facebook profile. Jezebel’s Margaret Hartmann wonders whether the film’s promoters simply posted the image incorrectly, got Facebook to reject it, and is now milking free publicity over the resulting “scandal.” Or is Facebook just continuing its bad habit of banning gay images and then apologizing for the “error” later?
