After I made the post above, a thought occurred to me that I wanted to append but it is too late to edit it: There ARE legitimate "special classes" who should (and hopefully DO!) enjoy Special Rights and Privileges that exceed, supersede, precede or extend those enjoyed by the common citizenry. I think it is safe to argue that adult Females, adult ethnic minorities, and adult non-binary gender/sexuality folks do NOT belong in this segment of "truly special." There is perhaps a legitimate caveat when it comes to females in that: pregnancy and lactation as well as the most intrinsic parental bonding are natural affinities of that sex; so we might say that "Mothers" or "Expectant Mothers" are a legit special category who truly deserve to benefit from special rights.

Until the time of adulthood, children arguably DO constitute a special category. Prisoners, because they have so many of their civil rights effectively abrogated or suspended, are also a special category who deserve special treatment. The elderly perhaps or more specifically those who suffer infirmities as a result of age. Mentally and physically disabled folks, absolutely a special class who deserve special consideration.

Muslims, gays, and rainbow-flavored Antifa saboteurs? No.

That is not what they are asking about.
They are asking about if people felt that they were unfairly suspended or banned for things that either didn’t seem like violations under their Terms of Service or for their political or religious views.

Private companies have their private policies. ;)

Now you are suggesting some kind of socialism, free speech for all. :lol:

They do have their policies.

If their policies, or how they administer them are in violation of any laws, that could be a problem.

There might also be an issue if they don’t administer their policies evenly.

Yes, free speech IS for all. That is sort of the point.

It is either anything is free unless it is not against a law, or nothing is free unless it is specifically allowed. ;)

There may be a better thread for posts about the "Trans Malfeasance" in medical/psychological field, but I don't know what it would be.
50 gender clinics in the U.S. They are going for them at like age 9 or 10, inflicting fucking genital surgeries, etc. *shudders in a combination or rage and disgust*

I could have placed this one under the "Political Violence" thread, but I'm not sure a milkshake rises to that level (yet):



What will probably come out of these milkshake throwing episodes is someone giving a lefty milkshake thrower a beat down. (and then you will hear the left calling for the police to intervene).

As for Burger King seemingly acting to egg this sort of behavior on...they are being shifted to my "No" list.
They already ranked behind McDonald's, Wendy's and Five Guys (that is in no particular order) for burger places. I see no reason to go out of my way to give them my business.
