Twitter temporarily suspended a Missouri U.S. Senate candidate’s account Monday for violating the platform’s policy against hateful conduct.

The violative post from Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Miss.) claimed that “Women’s sports are for women, not men pretending to be women,” and included a link to an ad targeting trans University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas where her deadname was used.

The article goes on to state the following:

Twitter’s hateful conduct policy bars harassing or promoting violence against any group or individuals based on identity, including gender and sexual orientation.


“This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals,” a Twitter spokesperson told The Hill.

According to Miriam-Webster, deadnaming is defined as “the name that a transgender person was given at birth and no longer uses upon transitioning.”

It is not clear how one post that ‘deadnames’ or misgenders another equates to “harassment or promoting violence.”

“The account owner will need to delete the violative Tweet and spend 12 hours in read-only mode before regaining full access to their account,” the spokesperson added, according to the outlet.

Hartzler’s campaign called the suspension “shameful, utterly ridiculous, and a horrible abuse of censorship by big tech giants to stifle free speech,” adding that the candidate will not delete the tweet.

The ad Hartzler referenced in her tweet addressed the issue of transgender women participating in women’s sports.

WATCH:

Hartlzer also questioned why Twitter hasn’t prevented Russian President Vladimir Putin from posting.

  1. Communism at it’s best! But Democrats can want us murdered and say all kinds of hateful things about REPUBLICANS!!!

  2. She didn’t promote violence, threaten anyone or harass anyone with her comment. She simply stated a fact. There are no such things as transgender humans. It is medically and scientifically impossible for a male human to change into a female and vice versa. They are just pretending to be something they can never be. Your gender and your biological sex are always the same. This mental illness needs to be treated with mental therapy…it should be illegal to give them harmful drugs and mutilating surgery.

  3. Yes and they aren’t touching Bruce Jenner either. He he speaking loud and clear about men participating in women’s sports.

  4. Man these people who are all consumed with Russia , but China is a bigger fn threat and our border is open to whom ever.

  5. You know who the bad guy is in this? Not the Senate candidate – it’s TWITTER.
    Saying someone who has a pe**s is not a woman is not hate speech.

  6. If he is a woman now why is he walking around the ladies locker room with her dick hanging out ,asking for me because if I was these woman’s daddies that have to dress and change with her well it wouldn’t be pleasant . So I thank my stars hell by daughter would beat her ass herself im sure.There should be 3 categories now male sports ,female sports and trans sports that is the only fair thing also 3 lockers .

  7. Let’s just remember that this supposed trans female is parading around in the womens dressing room flaunting her penis while gushing about decimating another female athlete’s record. I can say that right? Her still existing phallus that the female athletes are supposed to accept and undress in her vicinity? .
    This is sheer lunacy.
