Twitter has updated its terms of service regarding their policies on “Hateful Conduct”. The update actually took place back on October 27th, 2018, but it took a while for people to actually catch wind of the change.
Over on the official rules and policies page, there’s a link to the “Hateful Conduct” page, which now features a section about deadnaming transgender people, which is using the name assigned to them at birth. The section reads…
“Repeated and/or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone
We prohibit targeting individuals with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to dehumanize, degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category. This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”
This means that if you repeatedly call someone “he” when their Twitter biography states “she”, you could be banned.
One has to question if this also means that if you repeatedly call someone “they” when their Twitter biography states “xir”, could you also be banned for that?
The change comes amid a crackdown against feminists and TERFS who have been deadnaming and “misgendering” transgender folk, because radical feminists and trans don’t get along.
Just recently WordPress and Automattic began deleting, banning, and suspending radical feminist blogs that called out foul behavior of trans folks, shutting down their websites and forcing them off the WordPress platform. Some of the feminists are pursuing legal action against WordPress, given that the company banned the blogs first and then updated their terms of service to reinforce the bans.
It appears the farthest fringe on the Left is now getting rid of the radical fringe on the Left in the continued purge of wrongthink against the church of the Intersectional Inquisition.
