IOL: Protest at Google, Facebook ‘bullying’ of bare-breasted maidens

IOL: Protest at Google, Facebook ‘bullying’ of bare-breasted maidens. “CULTURAL groups and traditional values enforcers say they feel bullied and are concerned that media giants Facebook and Google continue deleting online pictures of bare-breasted maidens. More than 200 maidens yesterday protested against the media companies, accusing them of discriminating against African culture.” I wasn’t sure that I understood what the “maidens” were in this context, but Wikipedia helped with an article about the Reed Dance Ceremony. WARNING: As you might expect, there are breasts visible in this article.

  1. I heard reports about this on a local (Cape Town) radio station yesterday. In a multi-cultural country different cultural and linguistic groups have different sensitivities. An egg dance.
