A calendar created by students at Warwick University in England has been banned on Facebook under the grounds that it contains ‘sexually explicit content’. Female students from the University of Warwick Rowing Society banded together to pose in their birthday suits for a 2014 calendar in aid of Macmillan Cancer support.
Featuring 17 starkers students, more than 1500 of the calendars sold before the social media site scuppered their enterprise, raising £3,400 for their charity.
These calendars are relatively common throughout British universities and rarely actually show anything more racy than perhaps the odd stray nipple if somebody is careless, nothing to write home about unless you’re an overactive Facebook mediator with too much time on your hands. To add insult to insult, Facebook has also deleted the girl’s page despite leaving the male rower’s calendar page exactly where it is.
