In today’s day and age, you can get in a lot of trouble for stating basic facts.
Take Meghan Murphy, a Canadian feminist who has passionately supported the #MeToo movement, who posted a comment on Twitter considered so "hateful" that the social media platform decided to temporarily lock her account.
What did she tweet? Drumroll please!
She simply tweeted that "men aren’t women tho."
This is fucking bullshit @twitter. I'm not allowed to say that men aren't women or ask questions about the notion of transgenderism at all anymore? That a multi billion dollar company is censoring BASIC FACTS and silencing people who ask questions about this dogma is INSANE pic.twitter.com/dul6iOdbaz— Meghan Murphy (@MeghanEMurphy) November 15, 2018
This is quite interesting, considering you’d expect Twitter to really love anything a known feminist says. But once anyone goes against the far-left's way of thinking, they get banned, blocked, or shunned, just like anyone else.
Murphy went on an appropriate tirade when she found out her account was locked, continuing:
“Trans activists have been targeting my account for a few months now. Either someone at Twitter or with an in at Twitter has been combing through old tweets and reporting them for 'hateful conduct'. Twitter seems to instantly shut my account down without a second thought. Screen shot and share this shit, y'all. Complain to @twitter. They work for you. You are the consumer. I'm assuming my account is going to get locked again simply for speaking about this. But this is not fucking ok and I'm not going to let it go silently. What ARE we allowed to say here??? How tf is simply saying 'men aren't women' hateful??? I am losing my goddamned mind over this. Enjoy your brave new world, sjws. Here's your fucking social justice.”
The Canadian feminist makes a really good point (among others) about Twitter, saying, “They work for you. You are the consumer.” Looks like Twitter has been forgetting this basic point.
Murphy definitely gained a lot of support from her followers in response to Twitter locking her account.
As support for Meghan and out of simple common sense, here it goes,— Shourie (@_Shourie) November 16, 2018
MEN AREN'T WOMEN.
WOMEN AREN'T MEN.
THEY ARE DIFFERENT. https://t.co/PRTO0jqop4
Men aren't women ! Gonna ban all of us who believe in biology? https://t.co/BfT5u9YgzB— Diane Mc Gowan (@Diane1963) November 16, 2018
Here goes. Trans women are men who ‘identify as’ women. Women are adult females. They’ve got vulvas. Men can identify as trans women if they want to but that doesn’t make them female. And no women have penises.— Stephanie Wilson (@stephwilson131) November 16, 2018
Unlike Twitter, there are some who still believe in basic biological facts - and no, it is not hateful to say that.
