GuySpy Calls Out Facebook For Nudity Double Standard

GuySpy, the location-based gay dating app we may or may not be well-acquainted with, has run into problems with Facebook’s Community Standards before, which allegedly prohibit pornography and explicit nudity. But it seems that those standards don’t apply for everyone.

Previously, Facebook blocked GuySpy for over 30 days for (we’re guessing/hoping) particularly steamy content, leading the Spies to familiarize themselves with the ‘Book’s Community Standards:

Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and imposes limitations on the display of nudity. At the same time, we aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo’s David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.

Then on September 24 they posted this pic to its page only to see it taken down within hours by the Facebook powers that be. While certainly risqué, the kids at GuySpy found that their pic was nothing compared to some of the other content that slipped past Facebook’s ever-vigilant and all-seeing eye:

[T]he page “Hot boy sexy ladies of Dhaka” was created back in May, and shows something even more revealing. This site has been up for five months, and our photo was taken down in a couple of hours? This doesn’t make sense, unless, perhaps, facebook is just a tad homophobic and sexist to boot! Exploiting the female body is just fine, but showing a beautiful man almost completely nude is a disgrace. Somewhere, Donald Trump is smiling.

We’re not gonna argue over facebook Community Standards, but we are gonna argue over playing fair. As long as those girlie shots get the thumbs up from Mark Zuckerberg, we’re gonna call him out for being a dick–and not in a Michelangelo’s David sort of way.

Hey, either everyone gets exploited or no one does. Give us the liberty to see naked men or give us the death of trashy, badly-lit porn!
