On most occasions, you only do right by us (like updating us on our ex-boyfie's activity, hiding creepy Tinder messages in "another" inbox and allowing us to upload #blessed shots of us doing the Bronte to Bondi beach walk on a Saturday morning because, well, #fitspo).
But today, we're pretty pissed off at the social media platform after it determined which version of a women's body was suitable for its users. The latest? Plus-sized women wearing bikinis (see why we're raging?!)
Cherchez La Femme, an Australian group that hosts monthly talk shows with "an unapologetically feminist angle," says FB rejected an ad for their June 7 show, "Feminism and Fat," because the image of plus-size model Tess Holliday violated the company's "ad guidelines". So, the group understandably appealed (you know, since bikini images are basically everywhere on social media), only to be met with the real reason Facey couldn't support the image: it violated its "health and fitness policy" as well. WHAT THE ACTUAL F*CK.
To fire you up even more, here's exactly what FB sent to the Aussie group: "Ads may not depict a state of health or body weight as being perfect or extremely undesirable," they said. "Ads like these are not allowed since they make viewers feel bad about themselves. Instead, we recommend using an image of a relevant activity, such as running or riding a bike."
How about we just use the GIF below instead?
Since the absolute slamming FB has copped from well, everyone, the social media platform has since apologised, saying the whole decision was actually a mistake (you don't say???)
And whilst the photo of Tess looking absolutely freaking fabulous in her bikini has been restored, the sitch really does prove we've got a long way to go when it comes to body acceptance, doncha think?
