Facebook has shut down a social media group organized for mothers who are opposed to drag queen story hours at local libraries.

The social media giant removed the group 500 Mom Strong because it was deemed "transphobic" and in violation of Facebook's "community standards." 500 Mom Strong is based in Spokane, Washington, and was founded by Anna Hall Bohach, an activist who has long argued that drag is a misogynistic display and is tantamount to the grooming of young children.

Bohach told The Christian Post in an email on Thursday that she has been dealing with these kinds of bans for some time now, the latest of which happened Monday, and that Facebook representatives are not answering her questions. Facebook did send her a message saying that her page was removed for violating community standards and that policies were in place "to protect against recidivist behavior and do not allow people to set up new Pages that represent Pages that have already been removed from our platform."
