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 wouldnt 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 didnt 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:
They dont call it TWIT-ter for nothing!
Stay off twatter.
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.
conservatives could be proactive and censor twitter by leaving-
Twitter going after conservative publications and journalists like lifesite and andy ngo
Sound like censors at Twitter need their genitals waxed
Twitter is a evil as GOOGevil
Move to Gab and Minds. Ditch Twitter
Take him in. Put him in stirrups, pull out the speculum.
twitter is how Big Brother enforces the speech code.
