Soft Tanned Deer skins and Facebook Police

I am helping my parents move and a lot of random items they have they have donated but some they would rather sell, to help make a few dollars here and there. I have been listing some things, like a set of unused Jeep mudflaps, and an old set of R22.5 wheels from my dad's dump truck days, but recently I had the facebook police called on me over two different things. The first was a youth model Bear Compound Bow... Evidently someone flagged it in the marketplace as a weapon... I guess it could be USED as a weapon... but seriously? Have we reached that point that we can't even sell a youth model "sport" item on there? I mean, isn't there several Olympic sports that require the use of this item? We have gone so soft and are turning the future generation into a bunch of sheep. I'm only 34 and I see it daily with interacting with new hires. They are scared to get dirty, they just want to type on their phones, and everyone thinks guns are a hollywood thing. Its frustrating.

Then the most recent kicker... is I was suspended from selling on Facebook marketplace because I posted two soft tanned whitetail deer skins for sale... Deer that were legally taken, processed by my family, and my parents have a few to spare from the years. Evidently I am now marked as an animal "trader" by FB and ALL of my future posts will go under review for approval. I guess people have their heads in a hole these days and don't know where the world came from... so they certainly won't be able to steer where it is going.

/ end rant.

In the meantime, I still have these hides for sale. =)
