Perhaps @Twitter @Support Can Explain Why My @rsmccain Account Is Locked

Posted on | August 7, 2015 | 29 Comments

I was scarcely on Twitter yesterday because I was doing research for my Sex Trouble series, but this morning I received notification that I am locked out of my account @rsmccain and I won’t be able to unlock it for 12 hours. There was no explanation given, but probably some enemies — feminists, maybe? Neal Rauhauser’s friends, maybe? — have falsely accused me of “harassment.” Yet the fact is I’ve been using Twitter since 2009 and have myself frequently been a target of harassment that Twitter has seldom done anything to prevent.

In fact, false accusations of online “harassment” (which have become a standard tactic of the Left) are a deliberate form of harassment used against the Left’s opponents. Critics of feminism, especially, are not permitted to engage feminists on Twitter, because the silencing of opposition is necessary to their success: Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It.

Anyway, my friends should ask @Twitter @Support what this is about, because they didn’t bother explaining it to me.

Please buy my book, help promote it to others and don’t forget the Five Most Important Words in the English Language:

    …and they wonder why their stock is in the toilet. Once we hand the internet over to the UN, this sort of banning will probably happen across all platforms and will likely last a lifetime.

    Perhaps we should try to get Barack Obama’s twitter account banned for trolling.

    I guess Twitter is feeling powerful and entrenched enough so that they can let their SJW tendencies run amuck. My recommendation is for every non-SJW to stop using Twitter for one week. How does the last week in August sound?

    I agree. Let every person on Twitter stop using it for one week if you’re against the non-stop racial incitement and incitement to hate men.

    Harassment? That’s sooooooo last week!
    Failure to provide TRIGGER WARNINGS can be considered “Micro hyphen aggression” though.
    However: Metaphorically kicking a metaphorical Social Justice Warrior in the vagina (gender is a construct after all) is metaphorical Domestic Violence, or metaphorical War on Women, or something.
    Of course, I’m not seeing the part where Twitter “empowered” judges are required to possess demonstrable intellectual interpretation credentials. Much like Title IX “advocates”, “Dear Colleague….” ANYTHING, or “Family” court “forensic experts”.
    Apparently abusive “interpretation of language” THERE is OK.

    I vow to stop using it for even longer than that.

    Since I never started using it, this may be one vow I can keep.

    Honest to God, the only reason I joined twitter was because Iowahawk basically abandoned his blog

    Yeah, I just use Twitchy to keep up with it. I can be intemperate, especially when inebriated, and we’ve seen how the online lynch mob can destroy people’s lives over the smallest thing. I’m fine with keeping my Twitter experience curated and at arm’s length.

    What’s the past tense of the verb “to twit” and will that get you banned?

    Since you have been nailing feminazis like the football team on prom night, I suspect the femmis are going after you.

    that would past perfect tense.
    mere past tense would be ‘tweet’

    Heh. Per Clarice Feldman, Thomas Lipscomb has been airbrushed off FB with no appeal or explanation for months now. I hope you get a resolution, and soon.

    Twitter should be outlawed and Facebook heavily taxed.

    The football team is busy nailing the cheerleaders. The feminazis don’t go to prom.

    […] When @Twitter locked me out of @rsmccain today, this inspired me to do something I’ve needed to do for a while, namely create a Twitter account to promote my book Sex Trouble: Radical Feminism and the War Against Human Nature. As regular readers know, I’m now working on a revised and expanded second edition, which I plan to publish later this month. Maybe I’ll include something about this story: […]

    Perhaps if they had been invited to the prom they might not be uterofacists.

    At any rate, it is some guys fault.

    Maybe it was broad based. I was trying to access the website all day from both my phone and mobile and got 503, 404 errors all day yesterday. Even after cleaning out the cache. The few time it would come up, clicking on anything would start the whole issue all over again.

    Didn’t anyone tell Stacy that telling the truth especially about deviants and pervert is a HateFact therefore the teller must be dealt with.
