D. M. Murdock, AKA Acharya S., banned on Facebook

According to D. M. Murdock, AKA Acharya S., she made an effort to expose religious child sexual abuse with a vivid picture of what happens to little girls during a “virginity test”.  Facebook did not take kindly to the picture and permanently banned her, removing her Facebook page.

Acharya’s intent was not pornography, but rather to expose religious sexual abuse of children, specifically little girls, which she found on Google, shown in an article about “virginity tests” in South Africa.  Facebook responded to her attempt to be a voice for the voiceless by permanently banning her and hiding the picture.

WHY I POSTED THE IMAGE

I posted the uncensored, shocking photo on Facebook because it is important to see the utter indignity these poor girls must suffer – this horrible abuse is now being done in the West. How can we battle it, if we can't see what it is? As we can see from this Google Images search, the photograph is still there – is Facebook going to ban Google Images as well?

This abuse of girls can be found in many areas, including among Muslims and Christians in other countries. To reiterate, such virginity examination is now spreading to the West. In fact, I attached the apparent FB-offending photo to an article about the battle in Canada to put an end to this practice there: "'Degrading' virginity tests on women must stop, Quebec doctors’ group urges."

She stated that such abuses would remain hidden if people, such as those who run Facebook, attempt to keep the abuse hidden.

On her behalf, Mythicist Milwaukee started a petition asking Facebook to reinstate her page, requesting people to sign it.  She has also received support from others, such as Ophelia Benson, blogger of Butterflies and Wheels, requesting people to help Acharya get her Facebook page back again.

The only thing Acharya is guilty of is compassion, creating a more humane world without brutal torturous dogma, and a desire to expose and stop abuse, especially that of the religious kind against women.  She attempted to expose religious sexual abuse, specifically "virginity tests", of young girls and Facebook attempted to smack her down by silencing her on Facebook.  Granted, the picture was graphic, but her intent was not pornography, but to expose the heinous sexual crimes against children, especially little girls, in particularly “virginity tests”, which she says is moving to western culture.

Respecting people’s religion does not and should not include respecting inhumane treatment, torture, or abuse of anyone, especially children, of which Acharya is not guilty of doing.  Acharya does important work, exposing the mythology behind religion, along with modern day religious abuses.  She deserves all the support and respect she can get, including trying to regain her Facebook page.

    Never heard of her. One could have just written an article about such a subject, including information documenting places, times and specifics about such practices in the West. Posting a statement would require people to read however. I am unsure of the effect of such a photo on those performing barbaric rituals on other human beings. In the "West" such activities would be regarded as rape or sexual abuse. Even circumcision is being questioned , which is difficult for most American males to think about as most of us are happy with the result

    The facebook ban was just an excuse to remove Murdock from public exposure of our current situation of religious fascism.
