The Indianapolis Star (Rashika Jaipuriar and Kaitlin Lange) reports that Twitter has removed Rep. Jim Banks’ tweet about “Dr. Rachel Levine, the nation’s first openly transgender four-star officer”:
The title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man.
Twitter policy forbids “targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”
I for one do not welcome our new social media overlords. It seems to me that all civilian officials, and all citizens, have to be free to express their views about generals (and others).
