7 Facebook status 'feelings' that should be removed because whiny social justice warriors could find them 'offensive'

Rebel Staff

The social media giant should be 'feeling ashamed' for caving to online activists.

Facebook removed its 'feeling fat' status update and emoticon after an online petition for them to do so reached a mere 16,771 supporters.

The company responded to the petition saying “We’ve heard from our community that listing “feeling fat” as an option for status updates could reinforce negative body image, particularly for people struggling with eating disorders. So we’re going to remove “feeling fat” from the list of options. We’ll continue to listen to feedback as we think about ways to help people express themselves on Facebook.”

In honour of Facebook's decision to pull the plug on 'feeling fat', here are 7 other 'feelings' that have no place on the internet!

1 – Feeling Sick There are people around the world who have horrible diseases such as Ebola and the mumps. Why should they go through the horror of dealing with triggers while trying to update their Facebook status?

2 – Feeling In Love Considering the amount of people who cannot find love, why allow others the privilege of being able to say they are? If Victor Virgin is browsing the site and sees Peter Player is 'feeling in love' that would be incredibly upsetting to Victor!

3 – Feeling Cold How many Facebook users live in cold dark basements or can't afford heating on a professional protester's salary? This kind of status update is downright intolerable to people who live without hot water and hot food. It's downright revolting Facebook would allow this.

4 – Feeling Lucky Gambling addiction is a serious problem! Facebook is making fun of serious gamblers by allowing people to feed their addiction with the power of social media. The emoticon to accompany the feeling features four leaf clovers. This is so insensitive to people of Irish heritage!

5 – Feeling Blessed It's obvious to anyone with a brain that Facebook is enforcing a Christian ideology on all of its users by including the word 'blessed' with an emoticon featuring a face with an angelic halo. Atheists everywhere should be appalled by this. Not cool, Mark Zuckerberg!

6 – Feeling Ugly This one is a no brainer! How can Facebook allow people the option to flat out say they feel ugly? This promotes ugly-shaming and is insulting to people born with birth defects. Facebook needs to know that we're all beautiful and we all belong in Dove commercials.

7 – Feeling Old Why should old people feel old? A more politically correct way to not offend the elderly is to say: feeling experienced!

I am a tax paying, law-abiding, hard working, honest, straight Canadian male – therefore despite the so called Charter of Rights – I am not allowed to complain, not allowed to refuse service to those who do not agree with my religion or political outlook – yet I must at all times surrender to the femiNazis and the homosexual Nazi community.

For my opinion is not wanted, allowed and soon to be made completely illegal.

However, until I drop dead in my tracks and am buried in a paupers grave I will continue to work and pay taxes – as it is my duty to support the entitled of Canada.

My question is this what happens when we run out of tax payers who actually generate money rather that get paid by tax payers dollars? DO we just import more islamics?

In the meantime we will see more people push their agenda as we have seen above – and some day the social folks will actually have it illegal to feel sick, feel old or feel fat – what next?

It might become illegal for a person to write what I just wrote – not too far fetched at the rate Canada is going today.

Right, they should be removed. So much for all that hype about fighting for freedom, you guys.

I find social justice warriors and liberals offensive. Can we please have them removed.

Hey wait a minute… Isn’t this cersonship? Are you infringing on my human rights? My freedom of expression?! That’s it, I’m gonna, like, sue you!

Oh the absurdity of this garbage. Nice touch on the memes and the writing rebels. Keep up the good work :)

Pff. I’m fat. I’m 6’4 and about 400 lbs. Fat is totally a feeling. Some days I feel really fat and other days I just feel sorta fat. I’m kinda an expert on this “feeling fat” thing. Take it from a fat guy.

Thanks for the laugh! It cheered my day right up! :D

Sigh. FB is not my favourite social media. Its volunteer moderators/censors err far too often on the left side of politically correct, which is, let’s just say it, plain old wrong.
