Twitter suspends Christian magazine for saying Biden’s trans nominee is a man
The Christian Post reports that Twitter has suspended a Christian magazine's account for reporting that one of President Joe Biden's nominees is a man who believes he's a woman.
The Daily Citizen, a publication of the Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family, tweeted on the 19th of January that Biden’s nominee for assistant secretary of health, Rachel Levine, “is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman,” along with a link to an article about the nomination.
As a result, the social media giant locked the magazine out of its account, informing the publication that the tweet violated Twitter’s user rules forbidding “hateful conduct.”
Twitter wrote in a subsequent email to the magazine: “Hi The Daily Citizen, your account, @FocusCitizen has been locked for violating the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against hateful conduct. You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”
“Please note that repeated violations may lead to a permanent suspension of your account,” the email said. “Proceed to Twitter now to fix the issue with your account.”
The Daily Citizen said in its reply to Twitter that numerous media outlets have reported on the nomination and wrote in their articles that Levine was born male and remains a man who believes he is female. Levine has undergone elective cosmetic surgery and taken cross-sex hormones in an attempt to look more like a woman physically.
