New York Post columnist John Crudele has reported that Facebook refuses to block the “Equal Rights for Pedophiles” page, whose party line is nicely summed up in this passage:
“We are living in a time where others’ beliefs and desires are becoming more tolerant. If gay rights are becoming more prominent within America, I say that we should have a fair chance in life just as anyone else does. We are people just like everyone else.”
Crudele went on to report that a British researcher has found more than 200 Facebook pages maintained by convicted child molesters. As Facebook doesn’t maintain a “child exploitation” category for complaints, anyone reporting a pervert’s page has to do so under the “nudity and pornography” category, which may not reflect the offending page’s content.
