Absurd: Instagram fjerner billede af fuld påklædt kvinde, fordi hun er kvindeAbsurd: Instagram fjerner billede af fuld påklædt kvinde, fordi hun er kvinde

Det sociale medie kunne tilsyneladende ikke lide, at en kvinde har haft sin menstruation.

thank you @instagram for providing me with the exact response my work was created to critique. you deleted a photo of a woman who is fully covered and menstruating stating that it goes against community guidelines when your guidelines outline that it is nothing but acceptable. the girl is fully clothed. the photo is mine. it is not attacking a certain group. nor is it spam. and because it does not break those guidelines i will repost it again. i will not apologize for not feeding the ego and pride of misogynist society that will have my body in an underwear but not be okay with a small leak. when your pages are filled with countless photos/accounts where women (so many who are underage) are objectified. pornified. and treated less than human. thank you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ this image is a part of my photoseries project for my visual rhetoric course. you can view the full series at rupikaur.com the photos were shot by myself and @prabhkaur1 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ i bleed each month to help make humankind a possibility. my womb is home to the divine. a source of life for our species. whether i choose to create or not. but very few times it is seen that way. in older civilizations this blood was considered holy. in some it still is. but a majority of people. societies. and communities shun this natural process. some are more comfortable with the pornification of women. the sexualization of women. the violence and degradation of women than this. they cannot be bothered to express their disgust about all that. but will be angered and bothered by this. we menstruate and they see it as dirty. attention seeking. sick. a burden. as if this process is less natural than breathing. as if it is not a bridge between this universe and the last. as if this process is not love. labour. life. selfless and strikingly beautiful.

Rupi Kaur har igen lagt billedet på Instagram, men nu bliver det ikke slettet, efter det har fået en del opmærksom.

En situation, som milliarder af kvinder i en periode står i hver måned, blev åbenbart for meget for Instagram, da kunstneren Rupi Kaur delte det med omverdenen.

Den canadiske kunstner havde nemlig smidt et billede op, der viste en kvinde påklædt fra top til tå liggende i en seng, og som havde fået sin menstruation og blødt igennem.

Det fik det sociale fotodelingstjeneste til at slette billedet ikke bare en gang, men to gange. Efter at billedet var blevet slettet, fik Rubi Kaur følgende tekst:


Instagrams censur var dog ventet for kunstneren. Billedet var nemlig en del af hendes projekt, der skulle vise, hvordan de sociale medier har berøringsangst overfor ting, der er naturlige, men som, de mener, kan støde folk.

Det fik derfor Rubi Kaur til at takke Instagram:

thank you Instagram for providing me with the exact response my work was created to critique. you deleted my photo twice...

Efterfølgende er Instagram dog blevet opmærksom på deres absurde censurering og er kommet med en undskyldning.

- Vi er meget kede for vores fejltagelse. Når rapporteret indhold fjernes fra Instagrams fællesskab, får vi ikke altid den rigtige melding, og vi har fejlagtigt fjernet billedet. Så snart vi blev gjort opmærksom på denne fejl, gendannede vi indholdet, lyder det fra en talsperson fra Instagram, ifølge Metro.

Om der kan nå at blive rettet op på skaden, må tiden vise. Rupi Kaur får nemlig masser af støtte på Twitter under #menstruation:
