CENSORSHIP: Content ban

What reason was given for your ban?

I broke community guidelines by posting a photo of me showing my body in the natural state of womanhood.

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

Unfair treatment of how bodies are seen.

Were you able to appeal and what was the response?

Yes. It went under review but the post was never approved.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

I feel like I can’t show my body in the natural state of womanhood or even in the natural state of being a mother to my 7-year old son.

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

Our bodies carry a wide range of stories and these stories are varied in texture and structure. It’s about conveying the authenticity of it all.
