The picture that got me kicked off Facebook...

Facebook reminded me this morning that it was my 5-year anniversary. And it is and it isn't. It has been 5 years since I started that account, but I started it after they banned my OLD ACCOUNT I'd already had for a few years.

Why'd they ban my account?

For sharing a picture of Brad Pitt.

Yes, Brad Pitt is the reason Facebook blocked me. Fuckin' Brad Pitt.

So, here is the picture that was so scandalous that FB had to crash my whole entire social media world in 2014.

I should be SO ASHAMED, right? I mean, it can't be much worse than that, right? A bare bum? SCANDALOUS!

Now, you might ask—why in the hell would they block you for a bum? Welp, FB was closing a lot of LGBTQIA authors, artists, and performers during that time period—one of their many rounds of surges. It didn't take much to get punted from their system. I'd already gotten a smack on the wrist for another photo, which one I can't recall, but I doubt it was any worse than this. Probably less. I didn't post nudity on my FB account because it was public at the time, so Brad's bum here WAS pushing the line a bit.
