Right-wing commentator Mark Dice, famous for YouTube video interviews with random passers-by in public spaces, says that his Twitter account was suspended Thursday of last week after he implied that transgenderism is a mental illness.
The exchange that led to Dice’s suspension began with a tweet by Dice on April 10, in which he wrote, “58 different genders wasn’t ‘inclusive’ enough for Facebook, so now instead of picking from a list of options, that section is a ‘fill in the blank.’ The company is embracing mental illness on a massive scale. #Zuckerberg”.
An outraged reader named “Davon” tweeted back to Dice, “Are you calling gender identity a mental illness? The fact that you’re able to tweet this [EXPLETIVE] is proof enough that there’s [no] liberal social media bias.”
Dice then responded to “Davon,” writing, “All of them but two, yes.”
Soon after the exchange, Dice’s response disappeared from his Twitter feed, and Dice announced via Facebook that Twitter had suspended his account until he agreed to delete the tweet.
Censorship is thriving.
