Women Are Changing Gender To Male On Instagram To Avoid Censorship

Women are sick and tired of being censored on Instagram and are taking their own steps to avoid being flagged on the social media giant.

The Huffington Post reports that strippers, trainers, sex workers and models who use the app to make money have started changing their gender to male in order to defeat Instagram’s new policy that bans certain photos.

Back in April, Instagram introduced a new update that would hide photos and videos that it deemed “inappropriate.” However, it would never clarify why the content was removed.

The posts would also be blocked from appearing on the explore page or randomly deleted from a user’s Instagram story for “ violating community guidelines.”

Women in this industry believe that Instagram is being biased and shadow-banning their content.

“Many of us within the pole dancing community rely on Instagram to thrive,” said Michelle, a pole dancer who spoke to the Huff Post. “We use [Instagram] to share training videos, connect with new people and, for lots of us, to grow our businesses.”

She adds that once she switched her profile to male, her algorithm changed and she discovered that her posts began to get more likes and comments than before.

“It’s ridiculous that we have to resort to trying this kind of thing,” she added.
