Pro Choice women being targeted on Twitter?

Last edited Mon Feb 11, 2019, 01:40 PM - Edit history (1)

This happened to a friend of mine on Twitter - she made what she thought was an obviously sarcastic comment about abortion, and found that her account got suspended for hateful conduct. She's appealed her suspension three times and been denied all three times. She's lost an account that had almost 26,000 followers. Her new account is @ChasingOz_ - be warned, she's PG-13 or R rated.

She wrote about it here:

This is just another example of how Twitter has been going out of their way to not only punish outspoken women but anyone who identifies as part of “The Resistance.” It is nothing new, and now they are targeting those of us who have built large accounts and amazing community followings.

Yet men can go out of their way to message dick pics… or send threatening tweets and messages about how they are going to rape me and all kinds of other graphic expletives and these dudes ride off into the Twitter sunset with zero repercussions. There is no consistency in the enforcing of their rules.


I know other women that have been in similar situations. One sarcastic comment and then it gets reported by a bunch of MAGAts who alert each other will mass report the person.

2. Yup

What do you expect when the main twitter account belongs to trump? Twitter is supportive of trump hate or else they would discontinue his and all of his vile followers accounts.

5. Make it clear it's sarcasm. I've had posts deleted by juries

who are either clueless idiots or malicious agents, more than once. My entire adult experience -- especially in business dealings with well-meaning professionals with college degrees -- leads me to believe those who don't bother to accurately comprehend what they are reading far outnumber the latter.

Don't be a victim or a useful fool -- make sarcasm unmistakable. Problem (mostly) avoided.
