Nipples on New Yorker Cartoon Prompt a Facebook Ban

 About 83.4 percent of the time, The New Yorker’s cartoons aren’t funny. Yet despite that, it’s difficult to find something wrong with them, because they’re odd and vaguely interesting. Facebook, however, has little trouble picking something upsetting about New Yorker cartoons: Nipples. The New Yorker’s cartoon page on Facebook was temporarily banned from the site because a cartoon featuring tiny nipples on a woman’s body violated Facebook’s community standards.

As The New Yorker notes, it wasn’t the man’s nipples that got it banned; male nipples, according to Facebook, are fine. Something called “female nipple bulges” and female nipples, are not.

Please take this into consideration the next time you’re posting pictures from a party. If The New Yorker can get banned for cartoon nipples, anything can happen.
