It’s not a question as to whether or not the powers that be in Big Tech lean to the left or right. They demonstrate their hard-leftist bias on a regular basis, and do so in many ways. Recently, Twitter decided to show its bias to leftist narratives by suspending the account of RedState’s sister site PJ Media.
What did PJ Media do?
They stated a scientific fact: that Rachel Levine is not a female. He is, in fact, a male.
The article that the tweet contained refused to accept Biden’s claim that Levine was the “first-ever female four-star admiral” of the U.S. Public Health Services (USPHS) Commissioned Corps.
“Even if you believe that gender is a social construct and subject to how one feels and not dependent on biology, sex chromosomes determine whether an individual is male or female,” wrote PJ Media’s Matt Margolis. “Rachel Levine is 100 percent male, right down to his DNA. He is not a female. He may have grown his hair out and changed his name to a woman’s name, but that doesn’t make him a female.”
The title of the piece, “Rachel Levine Is Not the ‘First Female Four-Star Admiral’ … Because He’s a Male,” appeared in the tweet promoting the piece and Twitter took action, suspending PJ Media’s account until it deletes the tweet and admits they violated Twitter’s TOS.
That’s not something PJ Media is willing to do.
Nor should they. Levine is not a woman, and being punished for stating such an obvious fact is absurd. Yet, we continue to see this fact-denying behavior come from social media sites under the idea that allowing people to say that women can’t be men and men can’t be women will somehow trigger violence against the transgender community.
The fact is, no one triggers more violence against the trans community than the trans community. Its levels of suicide attempts are disproportionate to almost every other group at 41 percent, with transitioning through surgery upping that by 19 times. The regret around transition surgeries has gotten so bad that even the mainstream media had to take notice.
Gender dysphoria is a mental disorder, and while some people may be comfortable in that, the promotion of “gender fluidity” to everyone as normal is dangerous and irresponsible. No one is more responsible for violence than those pushing gender dysphoria on those who don’t have it.
This includes social media companies like Twitter that want to shut down any talk of reality when it comes to biological sex, even to the point of censoring actual biologists who point out how men who transition are still men.
This is a fight society should be willing to have. We should be able to speak factually without fear of being punished for it. We should be able to debate in the open without the platform we debate on shifting things in the favor to give one side more advantage over the other and silencing one side of a respectful debate.
Twitter is wrong here, and PJ Media should be supported openly as they stand firm against this ridiculous attempt by Twitter to parrot the “correct” narrative. Tell Twitter that you stand with PJ Media and that they’re wrong for censoring others they disagree with.
