Yes! Now imagine me, a writer who makes his freaking living talking about LGBTQ rights and equality. I promote my work on Facebook constantly, and I get slammed with automatic punishments for the most silly things all the time.

I can’t promote my writing without getting into sensitive issues. I mean, for Christ’s sake I write about religious oppression. But try putting the word Catholic into a sentence with any kind of negative connotation, no matter how legitimate from a civil or human rights perspective.

Slam!

But hey, quote scripture all you want about homosexuals being abominations, and Facebook is perfectly cool with that.

Groups on Facebook are promoting a book that literally claims “transgenderism” is a plot controlled by a secret cabal of Jews who want to destroy white civilization. They don’t run afoul of community standards.

Let me try to accurately observe that Catholic bishops in Poland have incited mob violence against LGBTQ people.

Slam!

It’s more than tiresome. It’s completely broken is what it is.
