I get how these “suggested posts” work—something about an algorithm based on other pages you may visit or things you might buy online, etc… which makes it even more of a mystery because I don’t think my internet habits are very lesbian-y. Rarely, if ever, do I look up things like Birkenstocks or Lilith Fair or The L Word online. And
when I visit porn sites if I were the type of person to visit porn sites, it wouldn’t be of the lesbian variety—if I can’t participate, it’s of no interest to me.
So why would Facebook think I’m a lesbian?
Actually, maybe it doesn’t. Maybe the truth is more devious and disturbing than that.
Maybe Facebook knows I’m not lesbian but these ads are just a way to maliciously taunt me:
“Beautiful lesbian women await you. Join free now to browse photo profiles.” WHAT THE FUCK?!
They might as well be saying, hey, straight guy, take a look at all these hot women that you will NEVER, EVER have. And what do they mean by “lesbian women” anyway? Are there other kinds of lesbians who aren’t women?
This must be Facebook’s way of throwing my virile and strong male heterosexual prowess back in my face like a used tissue; cruelly tantalizing my heterosexualness with sexy forbidden fruit I can never have.
Damn you, Facebook! Damn you all to hell!
