Facebook Censors Milo Yiannopoulos For Condemning Transgender Genital Mutilation of Autistic People

Breitbart Tech editor, political provocateur and LGBTQ Nation‘s 2016 “Person of the Year” Milo Yiannopoulos has confirmed to Autism Investigated that a post of his condemning the transgender lobby’s targeting of autistic kids for genital mutilation has been censored by Facebook. A frequent critic of social justice movements like third-wave feminism and Black Lives Matter, Yiannopoulos slammed this disturbing new trend of abuse after it was glorified in the pages of The Atlantic and further encouraged by the usual suspects of the autism community’s own social justice movement: neurodiversity.

Yiannopoulos’ censored Facebook post

Like the bizarre “fat acceptance” movement of third-wave feminism that seeks the normalize the obesity epidemic, the neurodiversity movement seeks to normalize autism – now the fastest growing neurological disability among children in the US. The primary instigators of this campaign are the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) and its appallingly dull founder Ari Ne’eman, who served as the first autistic member of the National Council on Disability under President Barack Obama.

Since leaving the council, Ne’eman has remained an autistic darling of the left: continuing to voice his fringe opinions on the platform of victimhood, grievance culture and political correctness that characterizes the feminist and Black Lives Matter movements criticized by Yiannopoulos. Such opinions of Ne’eman’s include accusing Donald Trump of suggesting autistic people should be dead when he said vaccines are linked to autism. Ne’eman has also opposed measures to stop autistic children from elopement and drowning by claiming that tracking devices used for such purposes are oppressive to autistic people with a tendency to elope. Given Ne’eman’s already twisted vision for the autism community, it would only be a matter of time before neurodiversity would join forces with the transgender lobby Yiannopoulos vocally opposes.

That trans-neurodiversity alliance formed last year on the heels of a terrible tragedy. Danielle Jacobs – a 24-year old woman with Asperger Syndrome in Arizona – committed suicide by cop after complaining that her doctor would not prescribe her testosterone for her desired gender “transformation.” Given her issues of aggression as further evidenced by her complaints of suffering “meltdowns” and a widely viewed video of her hitting herself, more testosterone was probably one of the last things she needed. Nonetheless, Ne’eman and associated LGBT groups pounced on her death with a joint statement, proclaiming:

Trans and gender nonconforming autistic people—and all transgender and gender nonconforming people—have have a right to:

make medical decisions and access affirming health care, including transition-related medical care and trans-competent services related to autism (boldface mine)

Ne’eman and friends assert that Jacobs and other “trans autistics” should just be allowed to go ahead with their plans of genital mutilation, castration and deformity, and that critics like Yiannopoulos are presumably just “ableist” and “transphobic.” Yet even though Ne’eman supports giving more testosterone to autistic people who if anything have extremely elevated levels of the hormone already, he has condemned lowering elevated testosterone levels found in autistic children. When he has, Ari Ne’eman was quick to point out that the drug used to lower their testosterone has also been used to chemically castrate sex offenders. Never mind that he has partnered with the trans lobby to actually castrate autistic people.

And now with the censorship of Yiannopoulos’ post that called out this horrific new form of abuse against autistic people, so has Facebook.

    I find this statement interesting “Trans and gender nonconforming autistic people—and all transgender and gender nonconforming people—have have a right to: …make medical decisions and access affirming health care, including transition-related medical care and trans-competent services related to autism”

    But yet the second we don’t want to subject ourselves to the medical procedure of vaccinations which consists of injecting toxins and dead tissue into our blood stream…. suddenly we shouldn’t have rights to make medical decisions. They all simply cannot have it both ways.

    I don’t buy into the neurodiverse theory. Its been a ruse from it’s onset. It’s way of trying to make people think that 1 in 50 kids with autism is normal or 1 in 6 kids with learning disabilities. This is another case of “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”.

    And these gender diverse groups simply want to convince everyone that all the endocrine disruptors and mercury are not altering the hormonal balance in humans even though it’s been seen in studies in the animal and human populations. These guys are running interference to cover up the catastrophe of the chemical and vaccine industry. Wonder who funds their groups?

    • Because herd immunity bullshit.

      But let’s make it okay for children to sell themselves into prostitution and mutilate their genitals. Nothing wrong there!

        “Herd or Community Immunity” is one of the basic tenants of the field in which you are attempting to get a degree.

        I’d be interested to know how your professors responded when you told them that “herd immunity is bullshit.”

        • It’s bullshit when vaccinated people can still start vaccine-“preventable” outbreaks. It’s also bullshit when used to justify taking peoples’ rights away to inject foreign substances into their bodies while the government covers up the harm that may come to them.

          • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 10:06 pm said:

            I’m very disappointed in your Jake & I’m sure your professors would be even more so, if they bothered to read your response above.

            I would challenge you to point to the vaccinated “patient zero” who has started a recent outbreak…..because it always seems to be the unvaccinated who are responsible for the outbreaks that we see – like the unvaccinated Amish missionary who started the outbreak in Ohio.

            Or the unvaccinated child (a patient of Dr. Sears) who started the San Diego outbreak.

            And there is always a choice not to vaccinate – you and your ilk just don’t seem to like the idea that your choices have consequences.

              • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 10:35 pm said:

                “First Time” -ever….

                Measles is one of, if not “the” most contagious diseases on the planet. Yet we’ve seen incidence rates drop to nearly zero, from a time when hundreds of thousands of cases were reported each and every year.

                And this woman was an example of the small percentage of people who don’t become immune, after being vaccinated – hence why we vaccinate large numbers of people – so that the chances that a person who isn’t immune comes in contact with the disease is reduced as much as possible.

                This is why “ring vaccination” is used to contain outbreaks.

                This is simple stuff Jake, I’m surprised you didn’t learn this in Epidemiology 101.

                • So let’s just use ring vaccination then to contain outbreaks when they occur instead of denying an education to everybody who doesn’t vaccinate.

                  • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 10:48 pm said:

                    Why should people have to get sick in the first place.

                    Domestic US measles was eliminated by the year 2000 – all current cases are imports.

                    Rubella no longer circulates in the Western Hemisphere (and Polio is nearly eradicated globally).

                    This is why vaccines are successful. You may not like it, but it’s true.

                    • Because as was the case with Measles Mary, even vaccinated people can get sick in the first place.

                    • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 11:58 pm said:

                      In extremely rare cases – as you already pointed out, this was the “first” documented case, ever.

                      And it ignores the fact that we went from millions of cases of vaccine-preventable diseases to a mere handful…

                    • And pretty much the reverse with autism and other chronic conditions.

                  • Lawrence on January 18, 2017 at 3:06 pm said:

                    However, the rate of other ID diagnoses have decreased at nearly the same rate as the rate of autism diagnoses have increased.

                    This also doesn’t take into account the changes in the diagnostic criteria….plenty of children who are diagnosed today with autism, would have have been diagnosed in the past.

                    Also, there are a large number of children who lose their diagnosis over time – since autism is a condition of developmental delay, not stasis.

                    • Totally debunked, by your friends at CDC. Autism was still diagnosed as a spectrum of disorders 30 years ago, and the prevalence then was about a 5000th what it is now. Also, the idea of children “recovering” from autism is a fairly new phenomenon that has only recently gained ground. And children who have lost their diagnoses have done so in ways that may further implicate vaccines…

                    • Lawrence on January 18, 2017 at 8:28 pm said:

                      That’s a very interesting take on that graph, but certainly an incorrect one.

                      Just look at the 1996 – 2000 timeframe….the decrease and increase are nearly identical.

                      Also, do you deny that the diagnostic criteria for autism has increased in both breadth and scope?

                    • Wow way to cherry pick that one segment of the graph. Never mind that from 1996-2010 ID dropped from 16 in 1000 to 15 in 1000 while autism shot up from 4 in 1000 to 16 in 1000.

                      No, it might have increased marginally although I’ve also heard arguments that the DSM-IV resulted in a narrowing of the criteria.

          • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 10:14 pm said:

            “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service” – that’s a policy that represents a choice.

            You can choice not to wear a shirt or shoes, but if you do, the shop has every right not to admit you.

            You can also chose not to get vaccinated, but you do not have a right to avoid the consequences of not vaccinating.

    • Anonymous on January 17, 2017 at 11:38 pm said:

      Hear hear! All this gender ambivalence and autism is no accident.

  2. Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 4:55 pm said:

    Facebook is under no obligation to give voice to anyone….why don’t you read their terms and conditions.

    • I don’t recall Facebook ever saying, “We take down posts that don’t have the right political opinions.”

      • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 8:47 pm said:

        Feel free to read their “Terms and Conditions.”

        They can take down whatever posts they wish – Facebook is a business, not the government.

        • No one’s saying they can’t, they’re just lying to their users by not acknowledging that politics play a role in what they decide take down.

          • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 10:08 pm said:

            Please post this “Facebook lie.”

            Because, based on Facebook’s stated policies, I can see the exact reason why the Facebook system would remove that post – the language used by the poster qualifies as “hate speech” under the Facebook Terms and Conditions.

            • So shut down discussion about why manipulating autistic people into mutilating their own genitals might be a bad idea in order to avoid offending anyone? Makes perfect sense…

              • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 10:38 pm said:

                Perhaps the poster should have used other descriptors instead of “hate speech.”

              • Lawrence on January 17, 2017 at 10:41 pm said:

                And Facebook can shut down any discussion that they would like – but in this case, they have a firm set of Terms and Conditions which address what content is considered unacceptable.

                The article was probably fine – but the descriptors used by the poster obviously violate Facebook’s terms and conditions of service.

                • I see nothing that qualifies as hate speech.

                  • Lawrence on January 18, 2017 at 12:02 am said:

                    I’ve learned a thing or two about what Facebook (and its algorithms) consider “hate speech.”

                    “Nazi Trannies” is more than enough for Facebook to drop the post.

                    Perhaps if he had been civil in his description, the post would still be there. I’m pretty sure every mainstream American would recognize that as hate speech too.

                    • Nazi comparisons to actions that could reasonably be described as barbaric are not hate speech.

                    • Lawrence on January 18, 2017 at 8:30 pm said:

                      “Nazi” and “Trannie” both qualify as hate speech.

                      Using those pejoratives was more than enough to trip up the poster….perhaps next time, he’ll choose better descriptors…ones that aren’t considered by the average person to be insults.

                    • A Facebook search for both words proves you wrong. Honestly, this just getting really tedious. Have something new to say, or I’m gonna stop approving your comments.

                  • Lawrence on January 18, 2017 at 3:12 pm said:

                    That’s not the way that Facebook sees it – again, see their Terms and Conditions for Service.

                    • I did, Milo wasn’t attacking anyone based on their “gender identity.” He was attacking people based on what they had in store for vulnerable people with autism.

  3. Anonymous on January 18, 2017 at 4:35 am said:

    All these purveyors of fake news, be it Facebook, “Science”blogs, NYT, CNN…must be scrambling soon soon since the new admin seems averse to bull$hit.

    • “Given our relatively small samples and therefore limited power, however, further research could usefully examine if testosterone in saliva samples collected during the peak of mini-puberty in larger groups predicts autistic traits or other traits that show gender differences.”

  4. Lawrence on January 19, 2017 at 12:10 pm said:

    Feel free to censor my comments Jake, since this is your blog and there is no guarantee of free speech on the Internet (though it would be more than ironic, given this particular post).

    Also, feel free not to respond to comments either – you don’t have to engage, if you don’t want to.

    If you ask me, and of course, don’t feel that you have to, having or encouraging dialogue, even with dissenting forces, would certainly make for a better user experience, than just creating another anti-vax echo chamber.

    Heck, I can even admit when I’m wrong – can you?

    • Lawrence, cut the crap. You’re not being “censored”, and asking you to contribute an original thought is not censorship. It’s the polar opposite.

      You don’t get to hijack this thread by repeating “hate speech” over and over ad nauseum until you’re finally given the last word. That’s not dialogue, and I wouldn’t allow anybody to get away with that here. All views are welcome here, but the comment threads of AI will not be taken over by the online equivalents of Trigglypuff.

      I think it’s pretty clear that “hate speech”, “transphobic”, “ableist”, “anti-vax” etc. are typically just invoked to shut down discussion without regard to any coherent definitions. And I think your comments further demonstrate that the topic of my post is yet another example of that.

      • Lawrence on January 19, 2017 at 7:27 pm said:

        I’m sorry that you think so. I’ve had more than my fair share of “hate speech” directed towards me – including threats that were directed against my children.

        I quickly realized that Facebook & it’s associated algorithms do stifle speech….and at the same time, Facebook has created a space where everyone believes that their opinions matter – no matter how ridiculous or even those grounded in some sort of facts.

        They don’t.

        People today have lost the ability to take the information they receive – online, in the papers, or anywhere else, for that matter, and apply context. Instead, they merely regurgitate what they’ve been told or seen and apply the lens of today.

        It’s like those who say that because people don’t die of vaccine preventable diseases today (or that very few do), that it was always that way.

        Because people are unable (or just unwilling) to scrutinize information to put it into proper context, it has allowed conspiracy theories to flourish – where something like “PizzaGate” can result in someone entering a family restaurant with a rifle, looking for things that aren’t there.

        Again, you are free to post whatever you like, approve only the comments that you like or that you feel are appropriate – heck, even real journalists do that too, when they make a decision to investigate or write about a particular story.

        In the case above, and as I will repeat one final time (I promise) – Facebook & it’s algorithms don’t care about your “prospective” and they certainly don’t care about context either. The poster used terms which, despite what you may believe, are, according to Facebook, classified as hate speech.

        That’s the sole reason why the post was removed. In fact, I wager that if a link to that article is posted on Facebook, without the comments, that it would pass through the filters with flying colors.

        Facebook is very lenient on what links they allow to be published, but the moment you start adding descriptors like those mentioned above, that’s when you get in trouble with the system.

        As to the content of the article itself, at the end of the day whether you have autism or not, you should have the right of self-determination. Just as you have chosen your path, others with autism should be allowed to choose theirs.

        One of these days Jake, I’d be happy to make your acquaintance, in person even, just on the off chance that you’d see me as just an average, ordinary person, instead of how I’m sure I am viewed by you – as some kind of cog in a giant pharma conspiracy.

        • I’m glad we agree that Facebook stifles speech. As I’ve said already, the terms Facebook described as “hate speech” don’t account for the fact that there are many other posts that use those words and remain up.

          Facebook posts don’t just get removed by some funky computer program based on what words are used; posts are removed based on the decisions of actual people who could have evaluated the context of Milo’s post and clearly see its context and perspective.

          I think giving testosterone to a person who already has elevated testosterone levels is a disaster and that anyone who manipulates a particularly vulnerable person like a person with autism into mutilating their genitals should be tried for sexual and physical assault and battery. But that’s just me.

          Happy to discuss more in person.
