Life Site News: Feminist writer Meghan Murphy has filed a lawsuit against Twitter because she was banned by the social media giant after she criticized so-called transgender people.
A Canadian, Murphy frequently writes on gender politics and is the founder of Feminist Current, an influential feminist website. In 2017, she spoke before the Senate of Canada and described her reasons for opposing transgender ideology. On Facebook and YouTube, she explained the reasons for the lawsuit.
Murphy wrote that Twitter “allows porn, as well as accounts that enable sex trafficking, on their platform, but ban women who speak the truth about material reality and challenge the idea that individuals can change sex through self-declaration.” She alleged that Twitter refers to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to “shut down and silence women who share opinions and arguments they don’t like,” even while the platform allows “illegal activities, violent threats, and pornography.” Murphy also claimed that Twitter refuses to hold “predatory men to account.”
