According to reports, both Facebook and Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, have decided to censor a book written by a woman, Carrie Gress, PhD, a professor at Pontifex University. In her book, she focused on the toxicity of modern feminism.
Facebook and Instagram removed posts advertising a bestselling book criticizing the “toxic femininity” and Marxist roots of radical feminism, claiming the posts violated the company’s “commerce policies,” the College Fix revealed Friday.
The book in question — The Anti-Mary Exposed: Rescuing the Culture from Toxic Femininity — was written by Carrie Gress, PhD, a Catholic professor at Pontifex University and mother of five. The book has sold exceptionally well, still ranked 7,948 on Amazon a year after its release, and it has received 423 reviews with an average of 4.7 out of 5 stars.
The rejection message said the ad for the book did not comply with Facebook’s commerce policies because listings “may not promote the buying, selling, or use of adult products” (emphasis added).
Of course, it is probably no coincidence that she was censored because Dr Gress also teaches at a Catholic university. Worship leader Sean Feucht also had his videos censored as well:
