I’m a little confused.

Not too long ago, I posted a picture of Number 7 on Facebook.

She was wearing a pull up and didn’t have a shirt on.

And she had decorated herself with a Sharpie.



I thought it was funny.

Facebook thought it was porn.

And I received a message asking that I remove the picture.

Today I was scrolling through Facebook, and Elizabeth Gilbert, the woman who wrote Eat, Pray, Love shared a link to an article on her Facebook page.

It was shared by over 600 people.

It was “liked” by thousands.

It’s a photograph retrospective where a woman, Lucy Hilmer, has taken a picture of herself, topless, on her birthday every year since she was in her thirties.

She’s 68 now.

I don’t think I can use the picture attached to the link that showed up on my page in this post because it’s copyrighted.

But here is the link.

I do not have a problem with the content at all.

I think it’s great.

More power to Lucy Hilmer.

But I’m just a little confused.

I guess all nipples are not created equal.

    seriously???? that’s insanity. Did someone maybe report the picture? I’m sure I’ve posted pics of my daughter in a diaper and wasn’t asked to remove them (yet).

    I’m guessing that Facebook does this entirely by computer algorithm, so no human judgment was made — and i’m glad they are erring on the side of zero risk when it comes to child porn. but thanks for posting the picture, as it’s hilarious — and we’ve had worse!

    I agree with Shaunacey, I bet some confused person reported it, and there was no human judgement by facebook. But I like that, “all nipples are not created equal”.
