While I recognize Facebook is a private company with the right to decide what is appropriate on their site, how does a conversation about safe sex violate the terms of use? And more importantly, why is Facebook censoring a conversation designed to be instructive, helpful and informative?

Facebook has positioned themselves as the premier social network. They want to be the place where conversations happen. So why are we censored when we start a conversation about an important subject? How can we as a society move past dangerous misconceptions about sex if we are not allowed to have those conversations in a way that is real and relevant?
