Twitter Suspends Allie Beth Stuckey For Saying Trans Weightlifter Is A Man (Which He Is – it’s another biological man who likes to say he’s a woman)
I was blocked from Twitter for months for the same thing, only in my case, I was addressing Richard Levine, who runs around saying he is a “she” and referring to himself as “Rachel.” (Read this post to find out more about me being blocked by Twitter over that.)
I did not threaten, or harass, or even tweet at Levine directly – I just mentioned in a tweet that Levine is a man who makes an ugly woman – which does not violate Twitter rules – and they still blocked me for months, until I removed that tweet.
Stuckey is absolutely correct – the weightlifter, Laurel Hubbard, is a biological man. (See also on NBC News site: Transgender Olympian Laurel Hubbard fails to win medal in Olympic debut)

Twitter temporarily suspended commentator Allie Beth Stuckey Thursday for saying that a transgender weightlifter is a man.
The social media platform told Stuckey that she had violated their rules against “hateful conduct” when she tweeted about transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard, saying, “Hubbard failing at the event doesn’t make his inclusion fair. He’s still a man, and men shouldn’t compete against women in weightlifting.”
“What’s that Orwell quote,” Stuckey asked in an Instagram post. “Something about the further people get from the truth the more people will hate those who say it?
Stuckey was temporarily suspended for 12 hours and allowed back on Twitter Friday morning.
Twitter alleged that Stuckey violated it’s ‘hateful conduct’ policy

Conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey was released from “Twitter jail” on Friday after she was briefly suspended from the platform after she referred to New Zealand’s transgender Olympic athlete Laurel Hubbard as a “man.”
Hubbard made history at the Tokyo Olympics for being the first openly transgender person to ever compete in any sport. Despite all the hype and the headlines that were generated across the globe, Hubbard came up short in the women’s weightlifting competition.
Stuckey commented on Hubbard’s poor performance.
“Laura Hubbard failing at the event doesn’t make his inclusion fair,” Stuckey wrote. “He’s still a man, and men shouldn’t compete against women in weightlifting.”
That, according to Twitter, violated the platform’s “hateful conduct” policy, which states “gender identity” as one of the many traits that users “may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass.”
Amid her suspension, the “Relatable” podcast host took to Instagram to push back against the temporary suspension from Twitter.
“Twitter has suspended me for 12 hours for saying Laurel Hubbard is a man, which is objectively true. What’s that Orwell quote? Something about the further people get from the truth the more people will hate those who say it?” Stuckey wrote on Thursday.
The next day, the suspension was lifted, Stuckey returned to Twitter but did not back down on her stance.
“Good morning. I’m out of Twitter jail. Men are still men. Thank you,” Stuckey tweeted.
This wasn’t the only recent Twitter suspension that raised eyebrows. Last week, the tech giant suspended “The Rubin Report” host Dave Rubin for a tweet that allegedly violated its policy on spreading coronavirus misinformation.
Following Rubin’s suspension, Twitter admitted that its actions against his account were made as an “error.”
