Facebook bans the famous "Origin of the World" painting; It's not just another vagina


Apparently posting a picture of the famous painting "The Origin of the World" by Gustave Courbet's (1886) will get you kicked off of Facebook. While the painting hangs in Paris' Musee d'Orsay one of the most well known museums in the world, it has been the cause of at least three Facebook accounts being shut down. One of these individuals is suing Facebook over the matter. And others have tried to post the image as a form of solidarity/protest, and they too have had their accounts deleted. What are your thoughts on this type of censorship?

In an attempt to not have my own Facebook accounts closed, I will be using the same image Gawker used to report on this news.
