A blogger and mother of five, Constance Hall, has called out Facebook for its removal of a post she created in hopes that it would help educate young people about sex. According to Hall, Facebook said the post violated the social media site’s community standards.
“Facebook legit just deleted my post on sex ed for young people!! Seriously??? said it violated their community standards… Unbelievable. Obviously too many people reported it,” Hall wrote.
The now-removed post, according to the (U.K.) Daily Mail, was written for “young boys and girls who don’t want to listen to their parent’s coz [sic] that’s cringey.”
Hall informed her fanbase that if they want to read her views on sex ed, they will have to cop her new book, Still a Queen, since it cannot be published on Facebook.
Although some may have found the original text crude or explicit, the lessons that Hall presents are beneficial, especially for young people. There’s a severe lack of sex education in U.S. schools, and it’s doing children a disservice — some experts go as far as calling it a “sexual health time bomb.”

It also discusses a need for women to accept their bodies and to explore what feels good to them, to help men pleasure them as well. Hall says to men that size doesn’t matter and that communication is vital.
“Apparently the content designed to liberate women and educate boys isn’t appropriate content for facebook,” Hall wrote on her Instagram.
