Twitter checked off another box on the to-do list toward maximizing free speech on Elon Musk’s social media platform, so, of course, transgenderists were out in force to portend imminent “real world discrimination and violence.”
The billionaire tech mogul has had no qualms labeling the promotion of “preferred pronouns” as mere “virtue-signaling” and a recent update to Twitter’s Terms of Service has since removed restrictions on so-called “misgendering” and “dead-naming” of individuals suffering from gender dysphoria.
As part of the movement toward “Freedom of Speech, Not Reach,” the Associated Press reported that Twitter’s policy update removed a rule enacted in 2018 that penalized users who used proper grammar or the given name of trans activists, instead opting to label content should it be deemed a violation of conduct and limit visibility.
Any move not fully representing a capitulation to their demands is typically treated as hate or violence (with no regard for the expressed wishes of those with opposing viewpoints), and outrage quickly ensued.
Speaking with the Associated Press, Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, said, “Twitter’s decision to covertly roll back its longtime policy is the latest example of just how unsafe the company is for users and advertisers alike.”
“This decision to roll back LGBTQ safety pulls Twitter even more out of step with TikTok, Pinterest, and Meta, which all maintain similar policies to protect their transgender users at a time when anti-transgender rhetoric online is leading to real-world discrimination and violence,” the CEO further claimed.
Joining in doom-saying, professional activist Alejandra Caraballo tweeted “Twitter lifts it’s policy on targeted misgendering and deadnaming and the freaks are out gleefully misgendering and deadnaming every prominent trans person as an achievement. It’s not about speech, it’s about bullies wanting to harass people because of who they are.”

These people are just awful. They know the harm they’re doing and they’re happy about it.

Time to start deadnaming (just make one up) and misgendering cis transphobes, since it’s now allowed by Elon’s policy

As with all right wingers, the cruelty is the point. They *just* want to be mean and hateful.

On Sunday, Musk had offered two comments on the pervasive promotion of pronouns in society as he reacted to a report that a former Planned Parenthood director with a bio displaying “he/him/his” had committed suicide following a police raid of his home connected to a child pornography case.
“Pronouns,” Musk wrote, “are virtue-signaling, so inevitably, as with all virtue-signaling, they will be used as a shield by bad humans.”
He followed up that remark by stating, “In any event, good manners require using the person’s name, not their pronoun, when referring to them.”

While the billionaire resorted to logic, and alphabet activists seethed at not having their delusions affirmed by society held hostage through mob violence, others on Twitter found the time to mock what the policy update ultimately boiled down to.
“People can now say Bruce Jenner without being suspended,” one person wrote. “So scary.”
Others were even more concise as they chimed in, “Ok groomers.”

Misgendering and Deadnaming do not exist outside the minds of the transgender cult.
We aren’t compelled to follow your religion.

You could change that headline to:
Twitter chooses to live in reality.
