Twitter Suspends Spanish Politician For Saying ‘A Man Cannot Get Pregnant’

Francisco José Contreras, deputy to Spain’s conservative Vox Party, was locked out of his Twitter account for 12 hours last week after saying men cannot get pregnant. Contreras had shared a news article, which reported on a “pregnant man” giving birth to “his” child. “That’s a lie,” Contreras wrote on Twitter about the article. “A man cannot get pregnant. A man has neither uterus nor ovaries.”

For stating a biological fact, Twitter blocked Contreras for 12 hours, claiming his tweet had broken its policies prohibiting “hate, threats, harassment, and/or fomenting violence against people” based on “race, origin, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religion, age, disability, or illness.”

“The hateful tweet (which I was forced to delete) was one that said: A man cannot get pregnant. A man has no womb or eggs,” Contreras tweeted in response to the suspension. “You can see this is already fascist biology. Next time I’ll try 2 + 2 = 4.”

A Twitter spokesman declined to comment, according to Fox News.

“We will not yield to Twitter imposing a twisted (and anthropologically wrong) worldview,” Contreras told LifeSite News. “We will continue to speak the truth about human nature. Biological truth should not be regarded as ‘hate speech.’ It’s biology, not bigotry.”

In response to Twitter’s decision to suspend Contreras, his supporters have started tweeting the hashtag #AManCannotBePregnant.

This isn’t the only time Twitter has targeted the Vox Party. Spanish publication “Counting Stars” reported that Twitter ignored overt threats against Vox Party members on its platform. During the Spanish election season, Twitter also disabled the official Vox Party account for 24 hours after it merely posted high crime rates among illegal immigrant minors from the Muslim Maghreb region in Northwest Africa. The statistics were taken from public police sources.

Vox, unapologetically conservative and in opposition to the European globalist movement, has become a major target for Spain’s left-wing parties and the European left in general. It has been subsequently characterized by the American corporate media as “far-right.” The party supports traditional values, small government, and Spain’s historically Catholic culture.

Vox describes itself as the “common sense party” that “gives a voice to the Spanish people,” and it seeks to defend Spain by fighting political correctness, standing up for the unborn and the Spanish family, and promoting limited government. “Life, liberty, and courage,” is its motto.
