Sometimes I am prickly. Today I am prickled because of Instagram’s sexist censorship policies humoring the misogynistic pigs who troll me. Both my personal account and @achinglypolite had stories reported and removed due to violating Instagram’s ~ community guidelines ~
Think about it: Our bodies violate Instagram’s community guidelines. Plain and simple, our existence as women / those perceived to be female is sexualized before we make a decision to do anything. No matter our behavior and no matter our clothing, we are deemed sex objects in this patriarchy. And so may I introduce you not only to sexist censorship, but the existence of the non-male in society.
