Apparently @Twitter @safety believes #feminists are weak fragile women

What else can one con­clude when you see this

Twit­ter con­firmed it has per­ma­nently banned Bre­it­bart Tech edi­tor and alt-​right provo­ca­teur Milo Yiannopou­los for allegedly vio­lat­ing its “hate­ful con­duct policy”.

The con­tretemps has been brew­ing all week, as Milo engaged in a barbed to and fro with embat­tled Ghost­busters star Leslie Jones over her Twit­ter feud with trolls who hated her new movie. At one point the CEO of Twit­ter Jack Dorsey inter­vened him­self, ask­ing Jones to direct mes­sage him. Milo him­self said noth­ing racist, though he joked that Jones’ gram­mat­i­cally chal­lenged quips at him were “barely lit­er­ate”, said Amer­ica needs bet­ter schools and referred to Jones face­tiously as “a black dude”.

Bre­it­bart has more

Bre­it­bart Tech edi­tor Milo Yiannopou­los has been sus­pended from Twit­ter once more just 20 min­utes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Repub­li­can National Convention.

The jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for the sus­pen­sion is cur­rently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-​in with Ghost­busters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twit­ter CEO Jack Dorsey pub­licly reached out to Jones late on Mon­day evening after she com­plained about “abuse” on the plat­form. Milo was sus­pended despite the fact that he sent no abu­sive tweets to the actress.

Buz­zFeed glee­fully reported that the sus­pen­sion is per­ma­nent, cit­ing a state­ment from Twit­ter promis­ing a clam­p­down on “tar­geted abuse.” Milo has also received a mes­sage from Twit­ter con­firm­ing that that his ban is permanent

Let me clue you in a sec.

Actual strong women are, well strong. They can take cri­tique, they can han­dle being quoted and are able to take care of themselves.

Weak women fall apart when cri­tiqued and run for oth­ers to defend them if any­one says a word that gives them the vapors.

Appar­ently Twit­ter believes women need to pro­tected from any word or phrases that does not fit their worldview.

Appar­ently Twit­ter believes women need to be pro­tected from pub­lic debate as it might dis­turb them.

Appar­ently Twit­ter believes that women are so weak that they are inca­pable of defend­ing their posi­tions and state­ments for themselves.

To put it sim­ply Twit­ter want to put fem­i­nists back into an 1880’s box and their fem­i­nist allies rather than object­ing are call­ing it being empowered.

What a bunch of losers. I’ll give Milo the last word:

“No, of course, I don’t have any regrets,” Milo told Heat Street. “But fem­i­nists on the other hand should have regrets that they have taught strong women that they are vic­tims and attacked peo­ple for hav­ing dif­fer­ent opin­ions to them on Twitter.”

FYI Fem­i­nism not with­stand­ing don’t think for one sec­ond this isn’t about silenc­ing a high pro­file Gay Trump sup­porter who a huge mega­phone at a time when Hillary is tank­ing at the polls.

Twitter confirmed it has permanently banned Breitbart Tech editor and alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos for allegedly violating its “hateful conduct policy”.

The contretemps has been brewing all week, as Milo engaged in a barbed to and fro with embattled Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones over her Twitter feud with trolls who hated her new movie. At one point the CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey intervened himself, asking Jones to direct message him. Milo himself said nothing racist, though he joked that Jones’ grammatically challenged quips at him were “barely literate”, said America needs better schools and referred to Jones facetiously as “a black dude”.

Breitbart has more

Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening after she complained about “abuse” on the platform. Milo was suspended despite the fact that he sent no abusive tweets to the actress.

Let me clue you in a sec.

Actual strong women are, well strong. They can take critique, they can handle being quoted and are able to take care of themselves.

Weak women fall apart when critiqued and run for others to defend them if anyone says a word that gives them the vapors.

Apparently Twitter believes women need to be protected from public debate as it might disturb them.

Apparently Twitter believes that women are so weak that they are incapable of defending their positions and statements for themselves.

To put it simply Twitter want to put feminists back into an 1880’s box and their feminist allies rather than objecting are calling it being empowered.

What a bunch of losers. I’ll give Milo the last word:

“No, of course, I don’t have any regrets,” Milo told Heat Street. “But feminists on the other hand should have regrets that they have taught strong women that they are victims and attacked people for having different opinions to them on Twitter.”

FYI Feminism not withstanding don’t think for one second this isn’t about silencing a high profile Gay Trump supporter who a huge megaphone at a time when Hillary is tanking at the polls.
