|According to the morality police at Facebook it is.|
I just want to say –and I will be reposting the text of this blog post, sans the “hard core porno” image of course- that no matter how hard I try I cannot find a place for Facebook in my narrow little world. I live in China where everything under the sun not approved by the CCP is blocked or banned, including Facebook. I use a VPN to access the site. Now Chairman Zuckerberg and crew have decided a classic album cover is pornographic and then block me from my own site and give me a stern warning about losing my account. Why do I have to experience the same censorship on Facebook I do in culturally repressive communist China? I am utterly disappointed and upset. I saw a meme of a dog shitting into Donald Trump’s mouth on a magazine cover. I do not care about Trump. Screw him and Hillary Clinton both. But that is okay at Facebook. Dog shit pictures, but one of the great album covers of all time is obscene. I thought we got past of this with Howl and Tropic of Cancer. Well, I guess not. I suddenly agree with those rude ass memes, MOST (not all for the love of Allah) people are in fact stupid. I am tired of being a participant in rampant stupidity. Facebook killed time for me. I get stressed and isolated here in China. I have communication dilemmas and culture stress daily. Sometimes Facebook was a diversion. But how many times have I “quit” in the last two years? I am talking, or writing, to myself there. How the fuck would anybody know or even care. No one will care, and that is the nail being driven in my coffin now. Everyday on my timeline I would get an old memory with a note that said “Billy, we care about you and your memories…” Liars! You guys told me you cared, about me and my memories, and look…. Look at what you have done! Tore my heart out and shit on me like that dog did Donald Trump. Oh the woe and suffering. Well, like my FB banner says… adios pinche culeros. Some of you I love very much. I hope somehow we can stay in touch. But not you Mark Zuckerberg, don’t even try to make up with me! I ain’t having it this time!
UPDATE: I was going to go to Facebook and post that infamous "one last post" people always do. I went ahead and deactivated (not deleted) my account. Screw it. It causes me stress. I will miss the post 2016 election bullshit. Or then again, I may not. I have a second account I can use that to stay in touch with all my friends and family. All six of them.
