The Quest to Change Pornography Rules

January 23, 2014 2 min read

Nudity is often a controversial topic and the use of it on websites like Facebook is strictly regulated.  Profiles and pages that are reported to contain nudity are censored and in some cases deactivated. Matt Huntley is a Portland, Oregon body painter that has a Facebook page that showcases his nude female canvases.  His page was deactivated by Facebook in early January since his work was deemed to fall within Facebook’s standards of pornography.  Although he has set up a new page without the censored images, it is that work that he is trying to promote.  Matt is now out to change Facebook's rules so that his and other pages can get the exposure that he feel that they deserve. 14055375-large Body painting is currently flagged by Facebook because although the offending body parts are completely painting, their outline is still visible.  The nudity and pornography section of Facebook’s standards is hazy as it “impose(s) limitations on the display of nudity.”  Images like Michelangelo’s David or family photos of a child breastfeeding are allowed because they are of personal importance. It understandable that since Facebook’s standards are imposed by human beings, that they must be somewhat subjective.  What is seen as art to one user may not appear as such to another.  There is so much that is subjective about our world, so much that is left up to opinion.  Art is always going to offend someone.  Some artists may even postulate that it isn’t art until it does offend someone.  In an interview with Oregon Live Matt Huntley stated that his work covers much more of a female body than the skimpy bikini shots all over Facebook.  Where does the blame even lie in this situation?  Are Facebook or Matt Huntley to fault for the standards of the site or is it just apart of social media sites?
