Woman bullied by Twitter: Social media giant sides with trans rights activists in free speech war

Twitter has today been hauled into a free speech row after locking a feminist entrepreneur out of her account over a Tweet which she claims 'quotes UK law'.

Angela Wild says she is no longer allowed to use her business account after Tweeting: 'All men should be banned from women-only spaces - and they are'.

She says the comment is a quote of UK equality law - which allows single sex services to be provided in certain circumstances.

However she claims the social media giant has suspended her profile until she agrees to delete the Tweet, which moderators say breaches the site's 'hate speech' rules.

The 44-year-old businesswoman, who uses the Twitter account to promote her company's feminist art and clothing, says she has pleaded her case with the social media firm in a bid to get her account back.

However she claims moderators have told her she will not be able to wrestle back full control of account - which has more than 11,000 followers - until she deletes the Tweet.

Some people are more invested than others in shutting down free speech. In the case of trans activists they clearly find something upsetting since they are so loudly shushing others. Is it talk about reality that they want to shut down? Support speech on the other hand, reinforcing what is obviously false, is not blacklisted. Some even consider it to be a virtue. Now, there are probably several points in history that people have found to be strange. Apparently it keeps on keeping on. A woman can have a penis. Back in 2015 a man was "honored" woman of the year. Strange days indeed.
