Facebook doesn't condone breastfeeding photos, but is OK with misogynistic pages

I feel like I've been living under a rock. I mean, am I the only one who didn't know that there are countless pages in Facebook that are essentially devoted to insulting and demeaning women and girls? With names like "Twinkle twinkle little slut, Close your legs you filthy mutt" and "Drinking beer and kicking drunk pregnant whore" and many more like that or worse, I find it inadmissible that Facebook has done nothing about it and yet they have a problem with pictures of moms breastfeeding their babies! Such hypocrisy!

As I've mentioned in the past, I've had a love-hate relationship with Facebook for quite a while now, but this might just be the reason I disconnect from it for good...

But first, let's see if I get this straight. Facebook has been known to take down photos of breastfeeding moms because they apparently violate its nudity policy considering the presence of minors on the social network, but it has no problem letting these same minors read comments and look at photos in the pages with titles like "I Kill Bitches" and  the other ones I mentioned above. Does that make any kind of sense to you?

By the way, how is that Facebook deems photos of breastfeeding moms inappropriate when this is one of the most nurturing, natural, and innocent practices between a mom and her baby? I just don't get it.

I'm totally fed up with Facebook and disgusted at how they have no problems allowing others to continue to spread the message that violence, disrespect, and humiliation towards women is okay. Although I love some of the benefits of having a Facebook account, I don't know if I'll be able to keep mine considering what I just discovered...
