Twitter's hateful conduct policy prohibits accounts "whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories." Libs of Tiktok's account primarily exists to promote hate towards LGBTQ people and their allies. 馃УA thread:

Multiple people have gotten notifications that Libs of Tiktok was found to have violated the hateful conduct policies. This is an account violation, not a tweet violation. This would normally mean permanent suspension but the account is still up.
.@TwitterSupport knows Libs of TikTok regularly violates the rules but continue allowing them on their platform

We won't know exactly what's happening until tomorow evening at the earliest because Chaya is observing Rosh Hashanah. It could be another lockout similar to the one in August.

I'm going to reshare my post detailing how LoTT violates Twitter's policies.

For the past week, @libsoftiktok and a band of anonymous trolls led a social TERROR campaign against @AkronChildrens, a world-class institution that thousands of my constituents (including my kids) are patients/employees of. Hear me now - stay the HELL away from our kids.

Now that Twitter may have banned LoTT, it is time for @Shopify to do the same. And @CriticalRole, please stop advertising Shopify or at least back us up demanding this. Libs of TikTok targets Childrens hospitals and instigates bomb threats for providing gender affirming care.

I don't want to write this thread. But I'm writing it. It's important. My name is Amanda. I'm a Canadian non-binary author, speaker and human rights advocate. I'm married and have four kids. 2022 is the first year I've seriously considered I might get killed doing my job.

The brain worms have gotten so bad, JK Rowling now thinks it takes a medical organization to hand out binders to trans youth and she lies about them advising on puberty blockers. What next, a medical license is needed to distribute condoms?

Imagine thinking you need a doctor to hand out the equivalent of a tight sports bra. I've worn underwire pushup bras that are more uncomfortable than binders. It's just pure hatred and bigotry against Mermaids.

Mermaids gives 13/14 year olds chest binders鈥攅ven "behind parents' backs"!鈥攆or the same reason other services give them free condoms, contraceptive pills & abortions. Teenagers have a right to make informed choices about their own bodies, & this is historically a feminist view.

GAG's Jaimee Michelle, who is cisgender and uses she/her pronouns, tells Steve Hilton of Fox News, who is cisgender and uses he/him pronouns, and Clay Travis of Outkick, who is cisgender and uses he/him pronouns, that Paypal and Venmo banning her was "transphobic"

God says trans rights.
Official! Florida's meeting to medically detransition transgender teenagers has been CANCELLED due to the hurricane. This meeting was going to go over the policy proposal to ban trans teens from puberty blockers, force detransition them, and possibly even ban social transition.

Right wing media used an update to WPATH standards of care to spread fear about trans people. Claims that the changes provide a green light for doctors to operate on minors without parental consent are lies, plain and simple. New from @JackWinstan: mediamatters.org/newsmax/rig鈥

"Moms for Liberty" is banning books mentioning the existence of LGBTQ people from schools at all levels. They're behind a trans bathroom ban at a school in Alaska. They also just banned "girls who code" in a Penn. school district because women doing STEM is "activist" to them

I'd rather rather take my kids to a drag show than a church when this is going on.
Stop taking our children to drag shows and start taking them to church.

You can also do both though. In fact, a church held a drag bingo fundraiser in Katy, Texas this past weekend. White supremacists and neo-nazis showed up to protest it. It's only religious freedom when it aligns with their beliefs.

Policies discriminating against trans students and teachers are unconstitutional, and schools choosing to do this risk losing money. Her lawsuit will protect students AND teachers. Also, Jennifer rocks and I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting her 2 years ago.

This isn't a bad piece, but I think it misses the mark on one very important issue: the current right-wing backlash isn't actually about surgery at all. This is about right-wingers just... not wanting trans people to exist or to be affirmed. It's really that simple.
I wrote about transgender adolescents getting top surgery 鈥 how frequently it鈥檚 really happening, why, and what the risks may be: nytimes.com/2022/09/26/healt鈥

It really sucks that we are on the precipice of losing all our rights and returning to a dark age for LGBT people but the main way of communication is through social media apps that encourage infighting because outrage is the quickest way to boost things in the algorithm.
