Now Twitter is suspending people for not using the “right” pronouns.
Twitter has just suspended the account of Republican Representative Jim Banks of Indiana for not calling Biden’s Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine by the right pronouns.
Bank’s was suspended after he wrote out a tweet stating “the title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man”.
Banks tweet was in response of the liberal media praising Levine as the first “female” four-star admiral.
Levine was born as a man but now claims he is a woman, but it’s apparently hate speech if you speak any scientifically backed facts on Twitter now.
That’s rich coming from the people who have told us to trust the science for the last year and a half.

NBC News covered the story and reported these details:
Twitter suspended the account of Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., on Saturday after he intentionally misgendered a senior Health and Human Services official, Dr. Rachel Levine, the first transgender person to hold an office that requires Senate confirmation.
Banks, who represents the northeastern corner of the state, was responding to the news that Levine, HHS’ assistant secretary for health, had become the first woman to be become a four-star officer in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, saying the title of admiral and the honor were taken by a “man.”
Twitter said the comment violated its hateful conduct policy, which prohibits the “targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”
Calling someone that was born and lived as a man for 54 years the first "female" four-star officer is an insult to every little girl who dreams of breaking glass ceilings one day. https://t.co/bHKmJbE6cA

Axios got the scoop too:
Twitter suspended the account of Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) Saturday after he intentionally misgendered Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine, the first openly transgender Senate-confirmed federal official, a spokesperson for the platform told Axios.
What they’re saying: “The account referenced has been temporarily locked for violating our Hateful Conduct Policy,” the spokesperson wrote. “The account owner is required to delete the violative Tweet before regaining access to their account.”
Twitter updated its policy in 2018 to prohibit the “targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”
Driving the news: Levine was sworn in last week as the admiral of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, making her the nation’s first openly transgender four-star officer and first female four-star admiral.
Twitter already set the precedent that the President of the United States can be censored now they are silencing anyone that doesn’t use the correct pronouns.
