Greetings to Facebergers again from Lake Superior ! 🙂
My latest 7-day “suspension” is over. It was over my copying and pasting a post by someone else — a post which FB did NOT delete — which used the word “tranny” for transvestite, not transmission. 😉 I honestly did not know it was “derogatory.” For me, it is just slang. The famous Jewish comedienne Joan Rivers, who was not anti-LGBT at all, famously called Michelle Obama a “TRANNY” (shortly before she very suddenly died….), so on that basis I assumed the word was just a slang term, like “Brit,” “Yank,” “Aussie,” etc. and NOT “offensive.”
However, this site does claim “tranny” is “disparaging and offensive”: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/tranny)
Well, comrades, I really do think that it is so incredibly SELF-degrading that we keep on using a social medium that is owned by an overt, hyperliberal enemy,
especially when the other big social medium, vk.com has 100 million users and is a perfect alternative: Russian, pro-Putin, pro-real-American, anti-CIA, friendly to the truth, linked to RT, anti-war, anti-WWIII, pro-Syria and pro-Assad.
VK (VKontakte; Russian: ВКонта́кте, meaning InContact) is the largest European online social media and social networking service. It is available in many different languages and is especially popular among Russian-speaking users. VK allows users to message each other publicly or privately, to create groups, public pages and events, share and tag images, audio and video, and to play browser-based games. It is based in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
As of January 2017, VK had at least 410 million accounts. VK is ranked 13 (as of February 2017) in Alexa’s global Top 500 sites. It is the most popular website in Russia. According to SimilarWeb, VK is the 5th most popular website in the world. As of October 2016, VK ranked as the most popular social networking website in Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
Vk does everything FB does, and it almost never censors anything.
And so I ask you: Why are any of us even here on Faceberg???
Do we WANT to be continually abused?
Are we just masochists? 😉
Do we as Americans now ACCEPT BEING CENSORED with Zuckerberg’s private hate-speech “laws” and live under unfreedom like our Canadian, Australian and European brothers and sisters?
