Twitter Ends Ban on ‘Misgendering’ and ‘Deadnaming’ Transgenders -Twitter
!! Thanks Mr Musk !! Let the discussions begin.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female, he created them. (Genesis 1:27)
On Tuesday, the social media platform Twitter made several major changes to its “hateful conduct policy,” determining that users are now allowed to refer to so-called “transgender” people by their actual genders and their original, gender-appropriate names.
The Daily Caller reports that the original policy, first enacted in 2018, forbade users from engaging in “targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.” The new guidelines have removed this sentence altogether from the “Slurs and Tropes” section.
“We prohibit targeting others with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category,” read the original rules. “This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.” The latter sentence is no longer found on the page.
The move is yet another representation of Elon Musk’s efforts to shift Twitter back towards a pro-free speech policy, as well as to increase transparency on the site, both of which were key promises he made when he first set out to buy Twitter last year.
