Feminists are outraged that the censorship rules they demanded for others are now being used against them.
According to a new report from The Daily Beast, women are being banned from Facebook for attacking men as a group. Even worse, Facebook says the ultimate evil — white men — are now classified as a "protected group" deserving of the same protections as everyone else.
From The Daily Beast:
When comic Marcia Belsky sarcastically replied “men are scum” to a friend’s Facebook post back in October, she never anticipated being banned from the platform for 30 days.Welcome to the safe space you demanded, ladies. It turns out the thing you desire most, to complain about men, is no longer allowed.
What's really triggering the hell out of them is Facebook's move to apply their rules equally to everyone — including white men:
As ProPublica revealed in an investigation in June, white men are listed as a protected group by the platform.Will they be factoring the history of oppression and slavery as practiced by Africans, Arabs and Aztecs?
Will they factor in the fact white men led the charge to end slavery throughout the world? Will they factor in the fact white men's technological inventions liberated the world from tons of backbreaking, menial labor?
If we're talking about equality and looking at the totality of history, that needs to be factored in. If that's the case, that's not going to work out for these leftists either.
There's a solution for this, it's something called "free speech."
It's a foreign concept no doubt, but you might be shocked to learn tech companies used to allow free speech on their platforms and generally only deleted illegal content so as not to run afoul of the law. This way they wouldn't have to act as speech police and everyone was free to counter speech they disagreed with with speech of their own.
You and other leftists demanded that come to an end because you were losing the debate.
Now, you're simply facing the repercussions of your own actions. This is the world you demanded.
The #MeToo movement has been perpetuated via social media thanks to the open nature of most platforms and the ability for women to speak out publicly in their own words. If Facebook’s community guidelines are being enforced irregularly, whether intentional or not, women say it stifles their ability to speak truth to power and share their stories.Note, not one of these women called for Facebook to allow free speech. The words "free speech" were found nowhere in the article. Instead, we just get more whining about "hate speech" and demands for women to be exempt from the rules.
I think there's a lesson in there somewhere.
