censorship you can't do that you can't say that

Updated on February 5, 2010

I recently published a hub called "SEX FROM A MANS POINT OF VIEW." Guess what?it was flagged.yep,flagged.I have officially been censored.The Moderators or speech police said that their was nudity,links to adult sites,and lewd and adult content on my hub.Guess what?there was NO NUDITY,NO LINKS TO ADULT SITES,and the content? Well...there was not a description of any kind of sexual act what so ever!!! But still my hub was flagged and taken down.I have been censored.I reviewed the hub and took down a couple of pictures and changed a couple of words trying to appease the cy-cops.But yet and still my hub is still flagged.I really must admit that this really chaps my hide.Yeah.This really gets under my skin.You see I believe in freedom of speech,freedom of speech for everyone.I have ran across many hubs that I found to be completely offensive,but yet and still I never flagged ANY ONE of them.Because I believe in freedom of speech.You see I am a vet,I believe in the AMERICAN DREAM,I believe in mom and apple pie,I believe in the house with the white picket fence,I believe in every ones right to pursue happiness,and most IMPORTANTLY I BELIEVE IN FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR EVERYONE.Censor me.In the end you are only hurting yourself,by censoring hubpages you will eventually drive away a lot of good people.Censorship kills the imagination.Censorship is totally anti-American.But hey it is what it is.My name is Bill Yon and I have been censored....what do you think about that?

      and another thing that really trips me out,hubpages has a category called sexy photos and videos,why have that catergory if you don't want sexy photos and videos?

      I know man! I've been hit with it several times. Twice I was told that a picture of an aborted fetus was pornographic and showing gay men getting romantic was not acceptable. Oh well.

      rvsource I hate to admit it..but you are right.sad but its true,all you have to do to see proof is grab a few movies from the seventies and eighties and compare them with the movies that are coming out now.the movies today are incredibly Tamed compared to the movies of yesterday...and thats just the tip of the iceberg,I could point out so many things but that would take another hub entirely.thank you for supporting me.

      thanks yall for supporting me.sex from a mans point of view is back online but only after I made some minor changes,those changes took away from the overall qaulity of the hub in my opinion,but at least its up,needless to say I was pissed to the gills!

      With some of the garbage I have seen on here from other people, it's hard to believe you got flagged.

      In your defense Bill, I remember reading the hub, But don't recall anything that would have made me reach for the flag button.

      Keep hubbing!

      This is bull-shit! I liked that hub, "SEX FROM A MANS POINT OF VIEW." I wonder what daisy got offended. It reminds me of the ones who only "approve" comments that kiss their ass. I've made several supposed "unapproved" comments during my short time here. A lot of people are just a bunch of sissy-wussy-candy-asses!

      Your wrong, censorship has BECOME American!

      Look at the news and other media. The only thing that is allowed to be is what THEY want.

      We need to take our country back!
