Twitter’s Anti-Trans Problem

Just as with racists, homophobes, and other bigots, Twitter is littered with accounts that voice anti-trans propaganda. I encounter them from time to time, whenever JK Rowling makes another pro-TERF tweet, or if a celebrity posts something in support of trans people. The comments are riddled with “Trans women are men” and it’s variations, as well as the old “it’s a mental illness” bullshit, which I fight against wholeheartedly. And I report their accounts as well as their tweets. And every once in a while, twitter will lock trans accounts(and trans ally accounts) for standing up to these bigots, in essence twitter defends anti-trans bigotry. That is Twitter’s anti-trans problem. And they’re probably not going to try to fix it.
