It’s become abundantly clear over the last several weeks that social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are both stacked to the gills with leftists who are only interested in promoting content that shares their progressive worldview.
Facebook has made several big changes geared toward controlling the kind of content that users will see come across their newsfeed in a bid to keep them from seeing anything “negative” that might challenge their previously held beliefs.
We also witnessed several videos released by Project Veritas and James O’Keefe that feature engineers who worked for Twitter admitting they purposefully target conservatives for censorship, shadow banning them so that no one gets to see their content.
As if that isn’t Orwellian enough, they also store posts and pictures on their own servers, presumably giving them access to this storehouse of information that could potentially be used against you at any time.
Our very own Activist Mommy, Elizabeth Johnston has been a victim of this very same kind of censorship put forward by both major social media platforms, though Twitter especially seems to be guilty in this case.
At one point in time, many followers on Twitter contacted Johnston wondering where she was or why she wasn’t posting content. Well, she was, only no one was seeing it because, as we learned from the Project Veritas video, they had shadow banned her.
Johnston was also censored for sharing her support of Judge Roy Moore after tweeting her intentions to attend a rally to show support for him after allegations of sexual misconduct started spreading in the media.
Unfortunately, this same sort of behavior from Twitter is continuing to happen, as the Activist Mommy was yet again banned. This time it was for sharing a piece written about a transgender kid’s suicide, merely pointing out that the LGBTQ community are the ones with the blood on their hands for not encouraging transgendered young people to get the psychological help they need.
The reality of the situation, whether the left wants to admit it or not, is that gender dysphoria is a serious mental illness. Many of the individuals who experience this are prone to massive depression and increased risk of suicide, as is clearly seen by the story shared by Johnston.
In fact, here’s a little snippet from an article detailing several studies discussing transgenderism as a mental disorder:
There are other studies, all ignored by the gender changing advocates. Studies from Sweden, Denmark and also a 2013 study showing 90% of transgenders have mental disorders consisting of depression and anxiety–known causes of suicide. These studies provide irrefutable evidence transgenders overwhelmingly suffer from untreated mental disorders. Gender surgery is not the required treatment for depression and anxiety or other transgender mental disorders.
The Swedish study concludes: “Persons with transsexualism, after sex reassignment, have considerably higher risks for mortality, suicidal behavior” (2)
The Dutch study results state In 270 (75%) of these 359 patients, cross-gender identification was interpreted as an epiphenomenon of other psychiatric illnesses, notably personality, mood, dissociative, and psychotic disorders. Major mood disorders, dissociative disorders and psychotic disorders reported in 79% of transgenders. This should be alarming. (3)
The 2013 study results suggest there is a need for practitioners to focus on interventions in helping transgenders with coping skills (adaption in the world) in order to improve mental health for transgender individuals. (4)
But if the professionals who treat transgenders remain unwilling to “come out” about the mental disorders nothing will change in their diagnosis or treatment. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. They’ve got the insanity going on.
So why is it wrong to raise awareness of what was an accepted fact just a few short years ago, before liberals sunk their teeth into the cause?
Here are a few screenshots of the warning Elizabeth received from Twitter:
For those who might be curious, here’s a shot of the story that was attached to the article, which you can read yourself by clicking here:
So it’s perfectly acceptable for the LGBTQ community to encourage these kids to indulge their own mental illness without seeking any sort of help, making these children think they are entitled to have everyone else join them in their delusions, but if you call them out on it or seek the good of those trapped in this awful situation, you get banned.
Clearly, Twitter is not at all shy about their agenda, which is obviously deep left. If freedom of speech as a guiding principle to live by mattered to those who run this platform, surely they would be more open to allowing others of a differing viewpoint to share their beliefs freely.
Regardless of whether or not these social media sites attempt to silence us, we must be willing to continue standing up for the truth, boldly, doing everything in our power to speak righteousness into a world drowning in its own sin. This can only be done by those who are willing to fight back against those who try to keep us quiet.
