Facebook Strikes Again Censoring Marginalized Users

In case you ever come across homophobic or transphobic people on Facebook, beware. You can’t actually call them homophobic or transphobic because Facebook considers that “bullying.” Oh yes, good old homophobic Facebook takes the sides of backwoods conservative homophobic hicks over LGBTQ people commenting and defending themselves against hate and discrimination. 

And there’s nothing you can do about it. Facebook has always been known for its homophobia and that’s just a fact. 

In any event, here’s an article that mentions how Facebook censors marginalized users. It’s happened to me personally more than once, with my books that have LGBTQ content and with comments I’ve made to homophobic and transphobic people.


For example, we’ve received reports from several people whose posts about their LGBTQ activism were taken down. Ironically, one was attorney Brooke Oliver, who posted about a recent Supreme Court ruling related to her historic case that won Dykes on Bikes (a group of motorcycle-riding lesbians that traditionally leads gay pride parades) a trademark.

Here’s more. This is why so many smart and well-educated people I know don’t use Facebook. They actually laugh at it and they use Twitter. I’m only there for the friends I’ve been following for years. Otherwise, Facebook is a homophobic waste of time for me. 

Don’t you DARE Tell Me You’re More Marginalized Than I Am

I don’t have any links for this part of the post. This is MY opinion. I see this happening all the time on social media and it really makes me livid. I have never once told anyone from any marginalized group of people that I’m more marginalized than they are. And I expect the same respect in return. And if I don’t get it, we’re going up on that hill. 

And I have all the ammunition I need, from the way gay men have been shamed to the way they were arrested just for being gay. And these things are still happening all over the world in those horrible anti-gay homophobic countries in Africa where they are still so backward they embarrass themselves and don’t even realize it. Gay discrimination even happens here in the US all the time. 

So if you think you’re going to tell me you’ve been more marginalized than I’ve been as a gay man, step back and prepare yourself. I won’t do it to you and you don’t dare do it to me. 

Jim Obergefell Gay Activist Runs For Ohio Office

Speaking of being marginalized, this next piece is interesting because it reminds us all of the fight for legalized gay marriage. Jim Obergefell made gay history…and US history…when he took his fight to the Supreme Court and helped legalize gay marriage on a federal level. And now he’s running for public office. 

“I took a history making fight for equal rights all the way to the US Supreme Court and won. I don’t mind being the underdog, and I’m not afraid to take on any issue when it’s the right thing to do. I will bring that same fighting spirit as your state representative,” Obergefell said in a video posted to Twitter.

Here’s more. He’s running in Ohio as a Democrat against a Republican who is currently holding the seat. I hope we get a follow-up on this. You can also read about how he lost his partner and fought to have him named legally as his husband. It’s an inspiring story.
