Twitter has suspended me
999

Glinner · 27/06/2020 03:16

I'm really sorry to barge in on you Mumsnettters with my problems, but
I've been finally suspended from Twitter and I have a feeling they're either going to ban me or just take my verified tick. I've submitted an appeal with Twitter and the Better Business Bureau but I thought I'd post here too so people knew what was going on.

Recently, I keep being locked out of my account and forced to delete tweets to get back in. The latest tactic by trans rights activists is to run a search for any time I've used the word 'groomer', a phrase Twitter recently decided was Not Allowed.

This was not a violation of Twitter's ToS at the time I used the phrase, and I have been careful to avoid it since. I still use the word 'grooming' in various permutations because I believe that gender ideology is a form of societal grooming. It is a very real threat to the wellbeing of women and children and if our ability to name a threat is removed, it is even more difficult to fight that threat.

You may remember that Twitter similarly removed Canadian feminist Meghan Murphy. She lost her account when she said "that's him" about 'Jessica' Yaniv. Bear in mind that Yaniv was still going under 'Jonathan' at the time, and just as in my case, her crime against Twitter's Terms of Service was not actually an offence at the time she committed it. She probably never thought she could be banned from the public square for uttering the words "that's him". But that's Twitter.

Twitter has a high percentage of trans-identified employees and for some time has been silencing feminists and their allies who run afoul of its absurd 'misgendering' policies. The one good thing about my situation is that I'm in great company--Claire Graham, Meghan Murphy, Skylar Gwynn, Miranda Yardley, GNC Centric and many more, important feminist and critical voices who have been silenced for fighting a dangerous ideology that tells children it's possible to be born into the wrong body.

Anyway, that's what's happening. Please let people know it's entirely down to malicious reporting from the usual suspects and please keep watching my YouTube Channel and visiting my depressing blog. I'll also be available on Glindr if people from Twitter want to re-establish contact there. Hope it's ok to post these links to those destinations

Thanks for all the support, and thanks for letting me fight alongside you.

So now people can't talk about grooming on twitter. That getting quite weird, considering declared paedophiles are permitted there.

I'll miss you, but the TRAs will soon learn that you are not our leader, just another much appreciated one of us. And everytime they take one down, ten more spring up to replace them.

We knew it would be down to malicious reporting. We see the same here. They know their ideology is being exposed and target those who make the most noise.

This might cheer you up though.

I just came on here to see if anything was being said about this

Entirely depressing but predictable at the same time

Thanks for being an ally in all this. (And for the excellence that is Father Ted, obviously)

I have a feeling I'm going to be asking for recommendations for dog groomers, cat groomers etc in the next 24 hours.

Thank you for your support too.

Shit
It may be related to you retweeting my links between Edward Lord and Ken Plummer of PIE.
I've been locked out of my account within a couple of hours of mentioning it.
I included a screen shot of Lord's own tweet. Seems TRAs can say something on twitter and it is fine until a woman shares it.

That groomer and grooming is something we can't mention sends a chill down my spine.

Ooh that’s a bit more interesting. A poster who last posted 6 months ago. There’s the evidence that people keep accounts for a long time purely to make their reports more genuine to @MNHQ.
