This morning, I smile. A little anyway. For just a minute.
You or may not, have seen my growling rant from the other night. My Fed Up with Facebook hate and intolerance rant. I growled a long while over that, truthfully, I still growl. I'm a firm believer in right is right, and wrong is not. I'm also a protest girl at heart. Once I get fired up about something, there is pretty much no stopping me. Sometimes I do big things, sometimes little things, matters not to me. I have a voice, I will use it. There are just some things I won't remain silent on.
After posting my rant, and seeing some things happening over on FB directly related to the photo deleting, the account deleting and the hate pages I took a stand, along with many others. Not my first, won't be my last. It was a simple thing really, a little thing... I changed my profile pics to ones that resemble those that have been deleted, those "unfamily friendly" same sex kissing pics. Those ones that FB likes to delete.
Is it a big thing? Nah, not really. Will I get deleted... Don't care, bring it. I truly am fed up.
This day, when I logged on, my account is still there, my pics still up, but... the hate page is gone, and I found an article...
Has anything made a difference? I don't know. Will they change their over aggressive policing? Doubt it. Will other hate pages spring up? Already have, and I will continue to growl and report them. So what's it all mean... not a clue.
There are bigger fights than Facebook, this I know. These I fight as well, not every fight I fight is in the public eye, and I don't spend a lot of time fighting FB, but right is right and wrong is not, and somehow this feels like a small victory.
And that makes me smile.
