    Twitter says it's Hate Speach to point out that men have neither uterus nor ovaries

    Twitter Suspends Spanish Politician for Saying ‘A Man Cannot Get Pregnant’ Because No ‘Uterus Or Ovaries’

    Francisco José Contreras of Vox was suspended for 12 hours by the Big Tech platform

    A Spanish MP was suspended by Twitter for 12 hours, after he responded to a news article and noted that men do not have the biological ability to become pregnant.

    Francisco José Contreras, an MP for the populist right wing party Vox, posted a news article to Twitter about a Spanish female-to-male transgender individual who was pregnant and recently gave birth to a daughter, with the article in question claiming that this made this individual a father. Contreras in his tweet said that this was a total lie. “A man cannot get pregnant,” he tweeted. “A man does not have a uterus or ovaries.”

    However, not long after he tweeted his statement, Contrera received an email from Twitter, claiming that he had violated their rules on “hate speech,” informing him that they do not allow material that “threatens, harasses or promotes violence” against anybody based on a number of personal characteristics, including gender identity, among others. The email also warned him that repeated “breaches” could lead to permanent suspension of his account.

    Contrera posted the text of the email on his Facebook page, where he revealed that he had been also forced to delete the offending tweet. The Spanish MP described the incident as being “biological fascism,” and joked that next time he would get suspended for saying that 2+2+4. Mario Noya, a journalist and convert from being a left-winger, tweeted his support of Contrera. “Twitter SUCKS,” Noya said.

    Since behavioural modernity began in humans about 20,000 years ago, we've done stuff like written dictionaries and grammar books to try codify our complex spoken languages.

    In the past century, the meaning of some words has fluctuated so much that they are no longer usable, for example 'professional' and 'gender'.

    When it comes to the whole 'transgender' / 'transexual' thing, the only two safe words we have left are 'male' and 'female' -- they are the only two words I use in discussions on these matters.

    Also for what it's worth: Male seahorses get pregnant.

    The real problem is that when it's becoming necessary to deny and ignore truth, because it's not fashionable, or because it impedes the path of power for political reasons, for specific political party agenda's then freedom of speech becomes nullified.

    Simply natural observation and common sense can in no way be argued logically as being "hate speech".

    But, logic and common sense has been under assault by political correctness doctrines for years.
