Allie Beth Stuckey suspended from Twitter for referring to transgender weightlifter as a ‘man’

Conservative TV host Allie Beth Stuckey was suspended from Twitter after referring to transgender athlete Laurel Hubbard as a “man.”

“Twitter has suspended me for 12 hours for saying Laurel Hubbard is a man, which is objectively true. What’s that Orwell quote? Something about the further people get from the truth the more people will hate those who say it?” Stuckey said in an Instagram post along with a screenshot of the email she received from Twitter.

“Laurel Hubbard failing at the event doesn’t make his inclusion fair. He’s still a man, and men shouldn’t compete against women in weightlifting,” Stuckey’s now removed tweet read.

“You man not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, natural origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,” the email from Twitter reads.

Hubbard, a biological male from New Zealand, was cleared to compete against women weightlifters at the Tokyo Olympics but made an early exit after failing to finish the snatch portion of the women’s 87kg competition.

Stuckey says that she doesn’t believe her tweet constitutes violence, a threat, nor harassment.

“I of course don’t think stating biological facts promotes violence! I don’t hate Laurel or anyone who identifies as transgender, but I also don’t believe in affirming that which is objectively untrue,” Stuckey said in an interview with The Blaze, which she works for.

“I believe in the fairness and safety and rights of girls and women. That means recognizing sex differences. No amount of self-declarations can change that. Sex matters. Biology matters. Facts matter.”

Twitter maintains that removing Stuckey’s tweet protects those who may view it as “abuse” and therefore jeopardize the ability to “express themselves.”

“Free expression is a human right – we believe that everyone has a voice and the right to use it,” the company says in the explanation of its rules against “hateful conduct.”

Twitter rules, which users must agree to before signing up on the platform, state that “targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals” is prohibited.
