LifeSite Twitter locked over tweet about transgender man wanting to see OB/GYN

December 9, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – LifeSite has been locked out of Twitter for “violating” its “rules” after tweeting an article about Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv, a transgender activist who recently complained that gynecologists wouldn’t see him as a patient.

Yaniv is famous for taking 15 beauticians to the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal over their refusal to wax his genitals, a battle he ultimately lost.

Twitter gave LifeSiteNews the option to delete the tweet and reactivate our account immediately. But instead we have launched an appeal of the decision.

Twitter claimed that the tweet violated its rules, but didn’t specify which ones. Twitter cites three main categories in its rules: safety, privacy, and authenticity. The tweet about Yaniv was public knowledge, as it cited a tweet Yaniv posted himself. It was authentic, it was not “platform manipulation,” impersonation, a copyright infringement.

The tweet did not “promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people,” which Twitter says it prohibits.

The story LifeSite tweeted was about a now-deleted tweet Yaniv published. According to National Files, an American conservative site, the tweet read:


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Culture/Society; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: bigtech; censorship; jessicayaniv; jonathanyaniv; lgbt; obgyns; techtyranny; transgender; tweets; twitter
Tweets, embedded links, etc. in original.

Exactly. It’s like when the guy told the doctor that his arm hurts when he raises it. And the doctor said don’t raise it.
