This morning I published a story about a man dressed up as a woman (commonly known as “transgender) who assaulted and spit on a female employee at the Dollar Store in Woonsocket.
I shared it on the Turtleboy Facebook pages as well as the personal account I use when Clarence Woods Emerson is suspended (18 more days to go), Philip V Prentiss.
An hour ago I received a notification from Facebook alerting me that the post violated Facebook’s hate speech and inferiority policy. According to Facebook my post “described certain groups of people as inferior to others.”
For the record, I don’t think this BLT-123 is “inferior” to others. I think this person is a criminal who should be arrested, then named and shamed. I think they act like this because they use their alleged transgender identity as a crutch to justify criminal behavior. This is a man who thinks it’s OK to beat and assault women, and gets away with it because he wears a wig and yoga pants. I won’t apologize for standing up to women as you protect their oppressors, and I won’t stop “speaking my truths.”
Philip is supposed to be suspended for 30 days, but only got 24 hours because Facebook is drunk. I can still message for whatever reason, I just can’t post or comment, because Facebook is drunk.
This would be a good opportunity for me to point out the ways you can keep up with Turtleboy blogs without being dependent on Facebook.
