Twitter To Ban Users Who Don’t Embrace Transgenderism
Published : November 27, 2018
If you choose to side with the Bible, biology, history, and science on the issue of sex and gender, you may soon be banned – at least by Twitter, Youtube, Google, or Facebook.
So what in the world is “Misgendering”? It’s when someone refers to an individual with the pronouns — he or she — pronouns that apparently no longer correlate with said person’s chosen gender identity. One example would be to refer to Caitlyn Jenner as “he” instead of “she.” I’ll simply add that Caitlyn and those who emulate him need our prayers.
Today’s PC terminology also includes the word, “Deadnaming,” which is when someone uses a transgender person’s former name, like Bruce, instead of their new name, like Caitlyn. My take is that if someone legally changes their name, out of respect, use that name.
So Twitter recently updated its “hateful conduct policy” to ban those who do not comply, and this is just now receiving some national attention.
Here’s what part of this policy states:
“We prohibit targeting individuals with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to dehumanise, degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category. This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”There’s not enough time to address the misuse of some of these words. Just know the Left uses words as assault weapons and battering rams against free speech.
Depending on the severity of the offense, Twitter has reserved the right to ask you to remove the content in question and serve a period of time in Twitter jail before being allowed to tweet again. They can also suspend your account.
Facebook has similar procedures which basically censor people who do not comply with politically correct standards or those who are overtly Christian.
Trans activists praise the policy change calling Twitter a more positive and safe place.
But when they refer to the use of “other content,” that’s quite a wide range of potential offenders. Also, notice they use the word “intends” so now they’re in the business of proving intent as well.
Defenders of truth and common sense such as Ben Shapiro said Twitter is fighting science and basic facts of human reproduction that are not subjective. He tweeted back:
Did you get all that? This is totalitarian and dangerous. These policies oppose the faith of tens of millions of Americans who simply believe biblical teachings about God as creator, and that natural marriage and family are not only ordained by God but are necessary to a strong, healthy society.
We’ll see how much push back this will get by those who support religious freedoms, but let’s make sure we continue loving others and pointing them to Jesus Christ who died for their sins and ours, in the hopes that they, too might turn to Him and be saved.
