Twitter locked Heritage Foundation Media Director Greg Scott out of his account Thursday over a tweet he wrote criticizing men who identify as women and compete in women’s sports.
Scott was notified Thursday that his tweet noting the biological differences between the sexes violated Twitter rules against “hateful conduct,” and his account had been suspended.
The tweet that caused Scott’s suspension was in reference to a biological male athlete who was banned from competing in a women’s powerlifting competition.
“He is not ‘stuck on the sidelines,’” Scott wrote. “The whole ‘I was astonished’ act is tired and dishonest. If any competitive sport highlights the differences [between] men & women that EVERYONE KNOWS ARE REAL, it is powerlifting.”
The suspension came less than a week after Twitter apologized to Ph.D. psychologist and adjunct professor at the University of Toronto Ray Blanchard, who researches gender identities and sexual orientation, for suspending his account over a tweet outlining his position on transgender people.
He called transgenderism a “mental disorder” in the flagged tweet — a statement backed up by the American Psychiatric Association.The Butcher Shop
