So today an event by my local socialist study group entitled "Understanding Toxic Masculinity" was taken down by Facebook for violating its 'Community Guidelines'.
I offered to make a Meetup event for us instead, and halfway through making the event, I got blocked from accessing the http://meetup.com domain (maybe because I used "Marxism" and "Political Activism" as one of the tags for our event lol)
Now using @GetTogetherComm for all our future events
context: We decided to hold a discussion meetup on "Toxic Masculinity" in the wake of widespread backlash to last week's Women's March from the public, right-wing politicians and large sections of the media.
@hhardy01 I reactivated my account so I could download my Facebook data for a data science/personal art project.
I don't use my Facebook account for much else though. That screenshot was forwarded to me by someone else from our group.
