When society unlovingly and torturously mistreats gender-confused people by playing along with their psychosis rather than reinforcing reality, the mentally and sinfully ill transgender person eventually lives in make-believe land so long that they become lost down the rabbit hole of their own imaginations. They begin to believe that others truly take them as their preferred gender because everyone is playing make-believe with them. This fantasy play is counter-productive to their spiritual and psychological healing.
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) Twitter has now banned “deadnaming,” which means referring to “transsexuals” by their real names (“transsexual” is scare-quoted because it’s scientifically impossible to change your sex, so no “transsexual” actually exists or has ever existed). Deadnaming can also refer to calling anybody by their real name, instead of the fake name they prefer. For example, when Pulpit & Pen refers to Thabiti Anyabwile by his real name, Ron Burns, instead of his fake Black Nationalist name, Thabiti Anyabwile, we are “deadnaming” him. You get the point.
For the most part, however, deadnaming is an accusation regarding “transsexuals.” And this has now been banned by Twitter. As The Verge reports:
Twitter now prohibits misgendering or “deadnaming” transgender people, alongside other harassment and abuse tactics. The change appears to have happened in late October, but news of it began circulating late last week. It’s part of a more general rewording of the hateful conduct policy, which now emphasizes the fact that certain groups — including transgender people — are disproportionately targeted with abuse.
The hateful conduct policy previously banned “repeated and/or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone.” The new policy specifies that “this includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals” — i.e., deliberately referring to a transgender person with the wrong pronouns or using their pre-transition name.
Twitter banned a feminist writer, Meghan Murphy, for daring to ask the question, “What’s the difference between a man and a trans-woman?” Apparently, you aren’t supposed to ask this question.
