Facebook’s prude police are out in force yet again, this time threatening action against a Sydney jeweller for posting pictures of an exquisite nude porcelain doll posing with her works.

Victoria Buckley, who owns a high-end jewellery store in the Strand Arcade on George Street, has long used dolls as inspiration for her pieces and hasn’t had one complaint about the A3 posters of the nudes in her shop window.

But over the weekend she received six warnings from Facebook saying the pictures of the doll, which show little more than nipples, constituted “inappropriate content” and breached the site’s terms of service.

The warnings said Facebook would remove the images and Buckley is worried she will be banned from the site if she posts them again.

I’ve noticed nipples disappearing all over the place in the media. Why do these people find the human body so offensive?

    # 18…sick thinking. I guess in Germany are nothing but agnostics and atheists since it is perfectly normal. You see nipples on magazines on the shleves, go sunbathing topless in the public parks. Kids can swim in the pools naked and nobody seems to care (or look).
    Wake up … this is 20ten!!!

    I have a friend who got banned for a suggestive closeup of a ceramic pig. Apparently the zoomed in shot of the figurine resembled a piece of human anatomy.

    honeyman,

    its because facebook is publicly accessed by people of all ages (i.e. kids underage). would u show your kid naked pictures of men, or women? naked dolls r on the border, but i guess facebook didn’t like it. meh. who really cares?

    DOH! It’s common knowledge that exposed nipples cause instant, en-masse ejaculation in the observer.
    It a very bad, messy social disorder. KEEP IT BANNED!

    I want to know why nipples, and why they are disappearing from our screens even when covered by clothing. This seems extreme to me.

    No doubt this is a result of moralizing busybodies who think it their business to protect children from the horrors of reality, and whom bombard Facebook with these trivial complaints on a regular basis.
