CENSORSHIP: Shadow & content ban

What reason was given for your ban?

Too sexual.

Why do you think your post(s) was censored?

Because we live in the new victorian age where everybody is a bigot and nudity is a taboo.

Were you able to appeal and what was the response?

They reviewed my appeal and decided to delete the posts anyway.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

I am not able to express myself, my political views, or my artistic vision on my platform in total freedom as much as I would want to. I am always limited and I feel rejected.

What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?

It is not normal to live in a world where sexuality, sex, nudity, etc are seen on the same level as violence and crime and considered something to hide from the rest of the world.
