Photos banned on Facebook

It's fair to say that many of us have a love hate relationship with Facebook.  We like to stay connected with others, but we have issues with privacy and many of us, especially artists and free thinkers, don't like such a big brother entity telling us we can or can't do.  Facebook is vague in its community standards about what it considers to be nudity. Facebook states, "Facebook has a strict policy against the sharing of pornographic content and any explicitly sexual content where a minor is involved. We also impose limitations on the display of nudity. We aspire to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo's David or family photos of a child breastfeeding."  The first part about child pornography makes a lot of sense, and I see now that they've eased up on photos of women breast feeding their children, but how do we interpret, "We also impose limitations on the display of nudity"?  What is nudity?  I'm guessing anything that shoes nipples or genitals, but what about women in dinky bikinis that just barely cover their private parts?  We've seen plenty of that on Facebook.  The following are photos that  I've personally had banned from Facebook.  I've appealed some of these decisions, but I've never received a response.  I'd welcome your comments and thoughts.  

This "fake nipples" (notice they're not real) photo got me banned from posting on Facebook for a month.

I was careful that no private parts were showing this photo of a group of participantes and armed federal agents at Burning Man.  This photos got me banned for posting on Facebook for a week.  

Here are other photos that Facebook has banned me from posting.  Note that I had the permission of all the people in these photos to post these images.
