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?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
