II.3. Sexual Exploitation of Adults

Policy Rationale

Sexual exploitation is an issue needed to concern in today's society, we recognize that Hahalolo is an important place to discuss and draw attention to sexual exploitation and violence. We believe this is an important part of building community and common understanding. In an effort to create space for this conversation while promoting a safe environment, we remove content that depicts, trades or exchanges, threatens or promotes sexual violence, sexual assault, or sexual exploitation, while also allowing space for victims to share their experiences. 

To protect victims, their relatives and everyone in the world, we also remove images that depict incidents of sexual violence and intimate images shared without permission from the people pictured. For more information about these efforts, please use technology to protect intimate images and help build a safe community, as well as report, remove intimate images shared without your consent.
