Twitter removed a message posted by Indiana Congressman Jim Banks, saying it violated their policies regarding hateful conduct.
Banks is accused of misgendering Dr. Rachel Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender four-star officer, on Tuesday.
“The title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man,” the Republican congressman wrote.
On Saturday, the tweet was taken down, with the following message: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.”
Twitter’s rules includes protection for transgender people in their “Hateful conduct policy.”
“We prohibit targeting others with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to dehumanize, degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category,” Twitter states. “This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”
Clearly, the people who run Twitter are science deniers.
