February 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Twitter has banned an ad promoting an interview about transgenderism with Heritage Foundation scholar Dr. Ryan T. Anderson.

Issues, Etc., a Christian talk radio show, attempted to run an ad on Twitter highlighting its February 7 interview with Anderson, the author of When Harry Become Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement.

Anderson pointed out the irony of leftist companies not wanting to promote messages with which they disagree given their support of forced speech for cake bakers.

Amazon has also stopped shipping Anderson’s book, he tweeted.
