twitter bans me for describing how terfs are fascists, saying its hate speech.

· Web · 13 · 22

@Laurelai And yet, I outright called Jack a Nazi collaborator and didn't get banned ... go figure.

@Laurelai Yup. Anybody in the sex industry who dares speak out; Twitter are shutting them down. It's disgusting! They've done it to me too!

@Laurelai I also have been banned for hate speech against transphobes

fuck twitter

@c0mrade @Laurelai I've been banned for the same from Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.

@Laurelai that is annoying but i think it must be their computer searching for specific terms there obviously wasn't a real person reading your tweet

@BoudoirbyJW well thats how i get patrons so its fucking me over either way

@Laurelai for sure its not fair... They should fix it. It keeps you from finding patrons an blocks people advocating... it's like they are trying to fix a problem by just pretending it isnt there at all.. just wrong

@Laurelai The only interpretation I can think of that is consistent with the wording of their policy is that they think you insulted cultists by comparing them to TERFs, because TERFs aren't a protected category according to that wording.

@seanl they have banned people for insulting terfs before, so apparently it is

@Laurelai @seanl Wow.... This is new to me. #Twitter is getting worse & worse everyday 😥

@phoenixx @Laurelai @seanl twitter is becoming a haven for hatemongers, white nationalists, and various supremacy bigots.

@c0mrade @phoenixx @Laurelai @seanl
Theres a girl who I went to undergrad with. Her only reason for being in college was to find a husband. Not kidding. She had no dreams, no ambition, no essence.

@alfred @seanl @Laurelai @phoenixx @c0mrade for real. Her only motivation for doing well in class was to impress men.

@phoenixx @alfred @seanl @Laurelai @c0mrade lmao she used to piss me off so much. Cause there I was, working my ass off for my future and she's just throwing hers away. I think she's married to a minister now.

@AmyJade @alfred @seanl @Laurelai @c0mrade so, she went from hunting down a man and then to having loads of kids? yikes indeed

@phoenixx @alfred @seanl @Laurelai @c0mrade yup, that's what she had been trained to believe. Her life was incomplete unless she was a married stay-at-home mother. She had been drilled to believe that women = baby factories.

@alfred @c0mrade @Laurelai @seanl @phoenixx ever heard of the Quiverful movement? Militant evangelical Christian's who believe a wife's duty is make children for the "army of god" because each child is an "arrow" in Christ's quiver.
Not kidding.
These people are terrifying.

@Laurelai @phoenixx @alfred @c0mrade @seanl both. Religious mixed with a "healthy" amount of lead.

@Laurelai @phoenixx @AmyJade @alfred @c0mrade Memetic breeding > genetic breeding. Those kinds of folks leave such movements faster than they join, which means the ONLY way they can expand is by making babies, which is expensive.

@seanl @Laurelai @phoenixx @alfred @c0mrade and yet THEY bitch at me (generally) for being a pansexual, transgender sw.

@Laurelai @seanl @phoenixx @alfred @c0mrade they're mad for a lot of reasons. Many having to do with their insecurity and faux manhood.

@AmyJade @Laurelai @phoenixx @alfred @c0mrade It seems like people develop beliefs either through accept something that's been told to them wholesale or by evolving their beliefs over time. The former method is very fragile, which means in order to maintain such beliefs they have to develop defense mechanisms, whereas people often welcome challenges to beliefs in the latter category, provided they're not off-the-cuff challenges from folks whose beliefs are in the former category.

@AmyJade @Laurelai @phoenixx @alfred @c0mrade So if your view of masculinity comes from indoctrination, you're likely to react badly when it's challenged.

@AmyJade @alfred @c0mrade @Laurelai @seanl @phoenixx why is that terrifying? I mean, I don't want kids, but I don't see why people raising other little people in their own philosophy is terrifying.

@Laurelai @AmyJade @alfred @c0mrade @seanl @phoenixx I mean is there verifiable proof of that? I grew up around that type of Christian. And most of them were peaceful human beings. Maybe angry, but never violent or 'militant' other than when that voted for militant politicians, but that's just the failing of having a government with so.much power that people like that make others fearful.

@h4ck3r9 @Laurelai @alfred @c0mrade @seanl @phoenixx their goal is create a religious army to take over or influence the nation.

@AmyJade @Laurelai @alfred @c0mrade @seanl @phoenixx I don't think so. Army is a very loaded word. And if you think they can even achieve that goal, you have a worse view of humans than I do. If that is their goal, I have extreme doubts that they could ever achieve it.

@h4ck3r9 @Laurelai @alfred @c0mrade @seanl @phoenixx evangelicals in positions of power net a lot of influence. Looks like they're succeeding.

@phoenixx @Laurelai @seanl they laugh because they are weak. They are insecure, pitiful little men and the women who follow them have been coerced, threatened and brainwashed. But even weaklings are strong in large numbers.

@Laurelai WTF? how is this hate speech? it's not like you said "kill all TERFs" or something ... also, how are TERFs part of any of the mentioned groups that require protection? (unless you count that attitude as disability)

Bird site, terfs Show more

@Laurelai I know Clark County 161 irl. want me to say anything to them?
@Laurelai on good terms with their leader + know who runs their social media page, have them both on signal etc
@Laurelai i didnt see that conversation but i just recognized the name and assumed they were possibly twitter beefing with you. let me know how i can be helpful

@alfred But perhaps they can make some noise on my behalf this was the thread context twitter.com/laurelai_bailey/st

@Laurelai I think you used too many buzzwords. Like "attack" and ""deadly". The filter is pretty stupid.

@tessaracht @Laurelai Such BS. Can you contest their judgement on that? I have been reporting transphobia on Twitter quite a bit over the last few months, and they actually have suspended or banned the accounts I reported (as they should have, though I was still surprised). They also recently suspended a well known nazi for transphobic comments.

@c0mrade @Laurelai God... I don't understand. I must just be a plebe.

@c0mrade @Laurelai bahaha! I like you. I knew following you wasn't a mistake. I know we most certainly disagree politically, but you are the type I best get along with.

@h4ck3r9 @Laurelai I followed you because I believe you are sincere, and I don't mind chatting with sincere folks

none of us came out of the womb with a political ideology, after all

@c0mrade @Laurelai oh bravo, thank you. That is possibly the best compliment I've ever received.

@h4ck3r9 @Laurelai I should be clear tho in saying I am absolutely against any sort of bigotry tho

like, I throw bricks at racists, I don't debate them unless it is to expose the cryptic ones

@c0mrade @Laurelai @h4ck3r9 imagine thinking that you could convince racists to stop being racists through rational discourse. imagine thinking that a racist enters into debate thinking his mind and values could be changed

@c0mrade @Laurelai I don't generally consider myself a bigot. I just like exploring a subject completely. Like your discussion with Thor. 😃

@h4ck3r9 @Laurelai I was poking at him because I recognized some Stormfront talking points and dog whistles but I wanted to be sure I wasn't overreacting

I have little patience for that but I take outing neo-nazis seriously so I don't jump the gun

his caution in breaching the subject and eventual reveal of racist shit couched in safe language implies that he knows damn well what he is doing

but I cannot be certain, so take it with a grain of salt

maybe he was deceived by someone else

@c0mrade @Laurelai I'm not sure. He is usually one of my favorite Tooters because he seems level headed. I'm not part of your movement, so I'm not as honed in on speech patterns and such, which is why I am sometimes surprised to find my favorite people turn hardcore... something... intolerant? Maybe... but then maybe they were always that way. I have been too hardcore on too many political leanings to side with antifa or with the alt right. I see sense...

@c0mrade @Laurelai ... on both sides and everytime I pick a side, people turn out to be way too extreme for me.
