This morning.

Via Metro.co.uk:

The suspension comes after he allegedly tweeted “men aren’t women tho”, in response to a post by the Women’s Institute, who wished a happy Pride to all of its trans members..

Twitter has confirmed that Linehan’s @glinner account has been permanently suspended. A spokesperson for Twitter said: ‘The account has been permanently suspended after repeated violations of our rules against hateful conduct and platform manipulation.’

Meanwhile…

In a post on the Mumsnet forum last night, Mr Linehan wrote:

”I’m really sorry to barge in on you Mumsnettters with my problems, but
I’ve been finally suspended from Twitter and I have a feeling they’re either going to ban me or just take my verified tick.

I’ve submitted an appeal with Twitter and the Better Business Bureau but I thought I’d post here too so people knew what was going on.

Recently, I keep being locked out of my account and forced to delete tweets to get back in. The latest tactic by trans rights activists is to run a search for any time I’ve used the word ‘groomer’, a phrase Twitter recently decided was Not Allowed.

This was not a violation of Twitter’s ToS at the time I used the phrase, and I have been careful to avoid it since. I still use the word ‘grooming’ in various permutations because I believe that gender ideology is a form of societal grooming. It is a very real threat to the wellbeing of women and children and if our ability to name a threat is removed, it is even more difficult to fight that threat.

You may remember that Twitter similarly removed Canadian feminist Meghan Murphy. She lost her account when she said “that’s him” about ‘Jessica’ Yaniv. Bear in mind that Yaniv was still going under ‘Jonathan’ at the time, and just as in my case, her crime against Twitter’s Terms of Service was not actually an offence at the time she committed it. She probably never thought she could be banned from the public square for uttering the words “that’s him”. But that’s Twitter.

Twitter has a high percentage of trans-identified employees and for some time has been silencing feminists and their allies who run afoul of its absurd ‘misgendering’ policies.

The one good thing about my situation is that I’m in great company–Claire Graham, Meghan Murphy, Skylar Gwynn, Miranda Yardley, GNC Centric and many more, important feminist and critical voices who have been silenced for fighting a dangerous ideology that tells children it’s possible to be born into the wrong body.

Anyway, that’s what’s happening. Please let people know it’s entirely down to malicious reporting from the usual suspects and please keep watching my YouTube Channel and visiting my depressing blog.

I’ll also be available on Glindr if people from Twitter want to re-establish contact there. Hope it’s ok to post these links to those destinations

Premier League-winning Liverpool FC fans celebrate outside Anfield, the club’s ground, last night

Please indulge me, dear readers.

It’s taken three long decades for Liverpool FC to climb back onto their perch as champions of England.

So naturally, as a lifelong fan, there could only be one theme for this week’s competition: What’s your favourite song by a band or singer from Liverpool?

To jog your memory, here’s a select list of Scousers who have put Merseyside on the music map: Gerry & The Pacemakers, Cilla Black, The Mop Tops, Wings, The Mighty Wah, Pink Industry, Echo & The Bunnymen, OMD, Teardrop Explodes, The Lotus Eaters, The La’s, Cast, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Atomic Kitten, Elvis Costello, Shack, Michael Head & The Strands, Plastic Ono Band…

In tribute to Herr Klopp and the Liverpool/German connection, here‘s my choice.

The best answer wins a delightful €25 Golden Discs voucher, to be chosen by my imaginary club mascot.

Lines MUST close at 6am.

Please include video links if possible.

Nick says: Good luck, la.

Golden Discs

Last week’s winner here.

A slightly unnerving but clever product from designer Danielle Baskin (top) – Maskalike – soon to be launched machine washable cotton face masks with an image of the wearer’s own mug on the front for, you know, facial recognition.

If you don’t need your face to open your phone, you can have any image you like, including the ‘looking permanently uncomfortable, trying to be happy’?‘Hide The Pain Harold’ meme (modelled by Danielle in the bottom pic).

In fairness.
