Community Safety Gender Equality Misandry Comedienne banned from Facebook TWICE for controversial post about violence Daily Mail Australia June 20th 2016 "entrenched prejudice towards masculinity" "The #genderspecific approach to crime is wrong. Female aggression, physical or emotional is also a female community safety issue" Pete Dowe and VicPolice News June 23rd 2016



#genderequality For mine Facebook was right to take this down. It is #misandry or entrenched prejudice towards masculinity
Females are increasingly physically violent and often to other females http://petedoweroadsafetyadvocate.blogspot.sg/2016/06/community-safety-female-aggression.html
The #genderspecific approach to crime is wrong. 
Female aggression, physical or emotional is also a female community safety issue.
"It doesn't matter what she did" 
she is entitled to rule of law, equal application of the law and due process

'Well that's a special level of stupid': Comedienne banned from Facebook TWICE for controversial post about violence

  • Comedienne Catherine Deveny posted a status on her Facebook page
  • The status was regarding the causes of violence - she said they are 'men'
  • She was promptly banned for breaching Facebook's 'community standards'
  • However, on Monday the post was re-instated - it was then banned again
  • Ms Deveny has taken to Twitter to share her outrage and frustration 
Australian comedienne, Catherine Deveny, was banned from Facebook over the weekend after she wrote a status update on her public page about the causes of violence.
'Here are the top ten causes of violence,' she wrote.
'1. Men 2. Men 3. Men 4. Men 5. Men 6. Men 7. Men 8. Men 9. Men 10. Men.' 
According to Facebook her post breached their 'community standards' and resulted in a 30-day ban from the site.
She appealed to the social media site to be re-instated, but Ms Deveny was then banned again when she re-posted the original status update alongside a comment about her victory.

Ms Deveny received a message from Facebook over the weekend that read: 'We removed the post below because it doesn't follow the Facebook community standards'.
The controversial update promptly disappeared from her page as the ban ensued.
Following the incident, the comedienne took to Twitter to complain about the ban.
She tweeted: 'Hey I've been booted off @facebook for 30 days for saying the top ten causes of violence are men. I'm protesting on the grounds of truth.'
Incriminating message: As the post was deleted, Ms Deveny received a Facebook message that said: 'We removed the post below because it doesn't follow the Facebook community standards'

Her Twitter post was then re-tweeted more than 100 times, and liked nearly 200 times, with other people rushing to Ms Deveny's defence on the grounds that jokes about rape and beating women are constantly allowed through Facebook's filters.
Feminist writer, Clementine Ford, shared the story on her Facebook page on Monday highlighting the hypocrisy of the system. 
She's back: On Monday, Ms Deveny was allowed back onto Facebook by the site, where she wrote the above post to double check she could update her status again

When Ms Deveny's post was re-instated by Facebook on Monday, and she re-shared her earlier feelings alongside the Facebook caption: 'You'll be delighted to know the post has reappeared [sic] on my timeline. A bit of a win for all. Thanks comrades', the post was deleted again for breaching Facebook's community standards.
Once again Ms Deveny returned to Twitter where she posted:
'Dear @facebook, you banned me for 30 days on Sunday, lifted the ban, put the post back up and then banned me again for reposting it WTF? [sic].' 
Confusion: The comedienne once more took to Twitter, where she made the above update, highlighting how confused she was by the double ban

'Meanwhile I reported a video of a woman being beaten by a man with a belt and THAT didn't breach their standards @facebook, [sic]' one user posted on Twitter, which Ms Deveny then re-tweeted.
'Well that's a special level of stupid @facebook,' someone else tweeted. Catherine Deveny also re-tweeted this sentiment.
