    Feminist Writer Sues Twitter Over Ban For Transgender Tweets

    Femnists are starting to push back against this transgender insanity in this country.

    If it grows its going to pit liberals against liberals.


    • Feminist writer Meghan Murphy sued Twitter on Monday for deceptive trade practices and breach of contract.
    • Twitter banned Murphy in November over tweets about transgender issues.
    • “Twitter is quite literally enforcing a 1984-style version of newspeak, wherein we may not speak or name material reality,” Murphy told TheDCNF.
    Canadian feminist writer Meghan Murphy is suing Twitter after she was banned for her tweets about transgender people.

    Attorneys for Murphy on Monday filed suit in the Superior Court of California for the County of San Francisco, accusing Twitter of deceptive trade practices and breach of contract.


    Twitter
    banned Murphy in November over a series of transgender-related tweets that included statements like “men aren’t women” and “How are transwomen not men?”


    “Twitter’s repeated representations that it would uphold the free speech rights of its users and not censor user speech were material to the decision of millions of users, like Murphy, to join,” Murphy’s lawyers wrote in court documents reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.


    “Twitter would never have attracted the hundreds of millions of users it boasts today had Twitter let it be known that it would arbitrarily ban users who did not agree with the political and social views of its management or impose sweeping new policies banning the expression of widely-held viewpoints and perspectives on public issues,” the suit states.


    “While it is appalling that Twitter would ban a journalist for asking legitimate questions about an incoherent ideology, such as gender identity, and for challenging legislation I believe is a massive threat to women’s rights, this is about more than just gender identity,” Murphy wrote in an email to TheDCNF.

    Be glad it's not the UK. You can be jailed for it. A 70 something old woman was arrested the other day for not calling a man a female. Every time I see a R or D say, you shouldn't be allowed to say this in the US, whatever it is, you are the problem. Freedom of speech or opinion is too important to not have.

    Twitter is a private company. What law did they break?
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    This kind of amusing, actually.
    @Chris this is a good example of postmodernism destroying itself.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Unless Murphy paid to have her account "promoted", she hasn't lost anything. I don't see how she has been damaged.

    Maybe some Liberal men would agree that We Need a Mandemic, but I hope most men and some women here would disagree.

    As for the suit, I hope she wins. I hope President Trump will stop Social Media Censorship.
