“Why don’t you just start asking people for their pooping stories?” one slightly peeved commenter posted on Homegrown’s instagram page. Shortly after, the social platform removed our innocuous request for female readers’ masturbation stories for the first time. ‘Failure to abide by their community guidelines,’ it seems. “Disgusting,” said another, just minutes before it was removed for the second. Call us gluttons for punishment but it turns out the mere idea of women pleasuring themselves rubs a lot of people the wrong way. Plenty of readers had our backs through it all, of course, calling the extreme outrage ‘silly’ and ‘unsurprising’ but it does warrant some thinking when a post with zero nudity, zero vulgarity and zero violence begets such an extreme reaction from people and platforms.
