Facebook Won’t Let You Create a Group For ‘Faggots’

Though Facebook already has a whole slew of “pages” with the word “faggots” in them, creating any new ones proves all but impossible.

After hearing about how Facebook was blocking uses from making pages with the word “Palestinian” in the title, we wondered what other no-no words were automatically blocked. Not only did we find out Facebook is letting “Palestinian” be included in page titles, but we learned “faggots” was definitely on Mark Zuckerberg’s list of banned words.

Blocking the F-word seems like a decent enough policy, given most people will create “faggots” groups for the sole purpose of denigrating our kind. But what if we wanted to create a fan page for delicious pig’s heart meatballs?
