You've read into this like, way to much, and then begin trollin on this page.

Perfect excuse to punch my best friends girlfriend :)

do we get to fuck them after we punch them? and also are they futile to resist?

A blogger from Amplify has been reporting on another event called national punch a slutt day with more than 37,000 guests and lots of comments similar to the ones above.

Slut-shaming isn't cool. Violence against women isn't funny. These facebook events are unacceptable, and we really don't care if anyone thinks we're humorless "in the closet feminists" for calling them out. They're also in violation of facebook's terms of use because they're calling for violence and because some people in the comments are mentioning specific people that they want to punch.
-You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user.
-You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.
Many people have reported these events already. Some are also speaking out in the comments on the two pages, trying to help people buy a clue about how offensive and inappropriate and unfunny this whole thing is. But really we shouldn't have to keep doing that, because it's up to facebook to take action and shut these pages down.

To report these events, log in to your facebook account and then follow the links in this post to the two events. Scroll down on the right side of the page to "Report Event", and select "Direct call for violence" as the reason. Then spread the word!

UPDATE: It looks like the "National Punch a slut in the head week" event has been removed (the link now redirects to the facebook homepage). Thanks to everyone who reported it! But the national punch a slutt day event is still there, so please continue to report that one.

UPDATE2: There's also apparently a new group I wish everyday was national punch a slut day so please report that group too!

I am personally shocked at the number of highly sexist (in both directions) Facebook groups and fanpages people join/like/whatever because they think it's funny or ironic or something, without seeming to realize that they are still perpetuating the ideas behind it (and that many people joining the group actually believe the message), and saying that they are actually okay with the message to one level or another.

Then there are the sexist (again, in both directions) that most of the people in them really do believe in the message.

In response (I believe), someone has made a Punch A Misogynist In the Head Week, but I don't condone violence of any kind, and of course it still violates Facebook's TOC.

Anyways, I'll report the event and keep an eye out for anyone I know RSVPing.

Reporting these events now

God fucking dammit.

Is there no end to stupidity, brutality and ignorance? Um...nope.

Thanks for bringing this to light.

Why is it that Facebook thinks this kind of fan page advocating violence is OK and pictures of breast feeding babies isn't?

Jezebel said...

Condo Blues - great question. These pages are violations of facebook's terms of use, but it looks like they've both been up for awhile with no response from fb to the complaints. It's pretty sad that it seems like they're quicker to react to the breastfeeding pictures than to something like this.

I've been considering making a "Joining the Punch a Slut Day Event makes you cool and not at all a douchebag" group on FB.

Autism Mom said...

Facebook seems to allow only certain groups to be made fun of. I got into a big argument with a jerk I went to high school with over the use of the word retard; my daughters both have autism and are also diagnosed with mild mental retardation. In the course of arguing with this fool I found a Facebook group called, "I'm insulted by how much of a retard you are". If you substituted a racial slur for "retard" I wonder how long it would be on Facebook. I guess it's okay to dehumanize and make fun of people with disabilities. Evidentally it's okay to beat women too. I try not to delve into Facebook groups and users outside of my group because I get pissed off a lot.
It's not that I'm for censorship per se, but if you're going to protect some groups then other groups should get equal protection. Or throw out all decency and let the ignorant masses have a free for all making fun of any and everything.

I reported the group too. Maybe it's working because only one of your links actually took me to a group?

Facebook is just full of this stuff, though. There's TONS of pages and groups that are just "sexy" photos. Good luck fighting it all.

Ugh. I heard about the first event (which I think was just the day, not the week) last week sometime and reported it to Facebook then. Frustrating that it didn't get removed.

But maybe since it was "scheduled" for April 30th and has therefore already "happened," they don't feel its removal is necessary? I don't know. At least the second one was removed, though.

It's easy to hit "share" at the bottom of the page, too. you can write in your two cents and post it on your profile. that's what i did. I'll admit facebook can present a hell of a lot of obstacles for the progressive crowd, but at least it makes speaking your mind a bit easier. "Not Okay" is the understatement I chose to go with... my second choice after "FUCK THIS".
