Thread: Cancel Culture

  1. #1

    Cancel Culture

    Today’s installment

    Twitter bans Christian organization for tweeting the following:

    “On Tuesday, President-elect Joe Biden announced that he had chosen Dr. Rachel Levine to serve as Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of HHS. Dr. Levine is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”

    According to Twitter, this violates its policy that forbids users from posting tweets that “promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of . . . gender identity.”

    So what’s your issue? That’s pretty straightforward. They have a policy. The tweets violate their policy.

    And it’s not a ban - it’s a suspension until the violating tweet is removed.

    Always remember- straight white Christians are the real victim.

    Keep this in mind when Junebug comes back to find a dozen or so posts rebuking his OP.

    Capitalism is really run amok with this cancel culture stuff.

    Seems like they probably missed a couple of million tweets saying something similar.

    Is anyone surprised that Junebug sucks from the teet of Ben Shapiro, though?

    You think there are a couple million tweets calling out a specific trans person and mocking their status?

    In this case it’s the naming of the person that got this tweet canceled. The account can tweet their beliefs that transgender people are actually not trans but rather in a state of confusion if they want to, but when they name a specific person it becomes harassment.
    Birds are real.

    The policy is focused on people, not a secific person. Therfore, they missed a couple of million tweets focused on transgender people.

    Cool, you can go through all of twitter and report all of the problematic tweets. Someone probably reported this specific tweet, twitter reviewed it and determined that it violated their policies. Twitter largely relies on community policing.

    Isn't that what a transgendered person is? A man (biological) who thinks he is a female (Gender).

    If gender is a social construct you can't be a gender you can only identify/think/feel you are a gender.

    But who really gives a fuck.

    Twitter is the Karen of social media, and the herpes of our society. It would be for the best if errryone was banned.

    Then why the need to specify that they are a man biologically?

    You’ve reversed this. Male and Female labels are biological, man and woman labels are societal. So the tweet would need to say “a male who identifies as a woman” not a “man that thinks he is a woman.”

    You appear to be claiming that Twitter’s enforcement is arbitrary. I’m and just telling you how it works. There isn’t some giant anti-Christian cabal running twitter, it’s a community reporting and subsequent review process. If all those other millions of tweets you are worried about were also reported, twitter would review them and likely take them down too.
    Birds are real.

    I think you just enjoy parsing everyone's words. Regardless of the policy, they obviously probably missed a couple of million other tweets.
