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. Issues, Etc. was unable to do so because the interview allegedly violated Twitter’s policy against “hateful content.”

“Twitter prohibits the promotion of hate speech globally,” it says. This includes “hate speech or advocacy against a protected group or an individual or organization based on based on, but not limited to” factors like “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”

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.
