Facebook had been increasingly censoring my own posts, which often deal with transgender and other LGBTQ issues. While frank and thoughtful, my articles and stories are certainly not erotica by any definition, and they are clearly and plainly not solicitations or invitations for personal interaction. But such is the environment now that I can’t post a story link to Facebook with any confidence that it will remain.

Facebook is stifling discussion of LGBTQ issues. Given their stated business goal of keeping people on Facebook and away from other platforms, that sort of censorship is chilling.
