A memo released by the White House condemned “gendered disinformation” and said the administration will be “developing programs and policies to address online harassment, abuse, and disinformation campaigns targeting women and LGBTQI+ individuals who are public and political figures, government and civic leaders, activists, and journalists in the United States and globally.”
Is this new task force the official ‘Ministry of Gender Truth?’
The memo suggested online “harassment” has detrimental costs for democracy by “undermining people’s ability to exercise their human rights and participate in democracy, governance, and civic life.”
It also claimed, “Online abuse and harassment, which aim to preclude women from political decision-making about their own lives and communities, undermine the functioning of democracy.”
