"Truth suppress'd, whether by courts or crooks, will find an avenue to be told."
I've been locked out of #Twitter / #X before.
And it's always the same, isn't it; if the people who want to silence you can somehow construe what you have said as "harassment," then they can have you silenced.
The funny thing is, I think I know who did it, and if it's the person I think it is, then it's ironic.
It's a person who has the Twitter/X user handle @JulesMagaGirl.
Yes, she's a "MAGA" girl?
The kind of people that go on and on about "cancel culture?"
Well, it sounds like one of the anti- #cancelculture crowd is engaging in the very thing she says she hates.
A few days ago, I got notification that my X/Twitter account was suspended because one of my Tweets was labeled "harassment," and I was given the option to either delete the Tweet or appeal. I appealed, and I got the notification back that my appeal was refused, and I appealed again, because I know that the Tweet is not "harassment" as it is claimed.
It may be the last of my Twitter account, because I know for a fact that what I tweeted is not "harassment," and I sure as heck am not deleting the Tweet.
I'd like to use this blog post to make the case that Twitter/X does not allow me to make. I'm not sure if I'm caught by an automated system, or if there is a live person on Twitter trying to FORCE me to remove the tweet that is keeping my account suspended.
It went like this:
This user, @JulesMagaGirl had been arguing back and forth on a Twitter thread about circumcision being mutilation, and I happened to be part of it.
The user typically proceeds to post all the usual alibis and excuses for forcibly slicing off part of a healthy, non-consenting child's penis.
It's "healthy," "cleaner," it "prevents STDs," all the usual stuff.
But in one tweet, she tries to argue that male infant circumcision "does not have to do with genitals."
I can't remember exactly what was said because I CAN'T ACCESS MY ACCOUNT, but she actually tries to say "Male infant circumcision is not in any way cutting away any part of the genitals."
To which I post the following tweet:
This is the Tweet that got me suspended from my account.
This is what passes for "harassment" in the eyes of some Twitter/X hall monitor.
If you look closely, all it is is just a rebuttal to the girl's claim that circumcision "doesn't remove anything from the genitals."
The tweet includes a clear picture of a circumcision.
It should be obvious to anyone with eyeballs and two brain cells to rub together that circumcision clearly removes tissue from the genitals.
Where else could circumcision be removing anything from?
@JulesMagaGirl is clearly delusional, as the fact that circumcision is clearly an act of male genital mutilation is clear as day from the picture I posted.
The thread goes on and on with other attempts at arguments that @JulesMagaGirl tries to make.
Parental choice. (Which would also apply to FGM.)
Retention of the ability to orgasm. (Also true of FGM.)
Retention of the ability to procreate. (Also true of FGM.)
All the usual canned stuff.
But the above Tweet is the one that got me cancelled.
I'm still waiting for that appeal, because as it is easy for anyone to see, I have not engaged in any "harassment," unless the "harassment" is adequate rebuttal to poor arguments.
At this point I need to ask, @elonmusk, what is the meaning of this?
Is this conversation not allowed on X/Twitter?
Kind of disappointing as I thought that free speech had returned to X/Twitter.
Anyway, since X/Twitter will not allow me to make my case to them directly, I thought I'd post it here.
Very disappointed, Mr. Musk, very disappointed.
