Academic and leading vigilante critic James Lindsay has been blacklisted by Twitter, a platform he has used to draw public attention to a number of issues that have attracted growing public concern, notably the rise of critical race theory and of transgender ideology in schools.
Lindsay was banned following a massive left-wing reporting campaign on the platform after she used the phrase “child sex specialist” to describe people who facilitate gender transitions for children – a process that often involves permanent castration and genital mutilation.
Alejandra Caraballo, one of the people who reported Lindsay’s account, celebrated the prominent activist’s silencing on Twitter, saying “good run.”

Carabello, who describes herself as a “wise Latina” and hosts a podcast called “queering the law,” wrote about Wired and Slate, and works for a technology law program at Harvard Law School. In her current profile picture, she’s wearing a shirt emblazoned with the now-popular progressive slogan “protect trans kids.”
According to the message from Twitter in response to Carabello’s report, Lindsay has now been suspended and will not be allowed to create new accounts.
Ultra-woke Twitter has fought back against attempts to invoke the left’s sexualization of children and celebration of body mutilation in the name of “trans rights.”
Lindsay was briefly fired earlier this year after calling a Media Matters employee a “groomer,” a phrase used to describe adults who lure children with sexual material, encourage gender confusion, or advocate for their “gender affirmation” ( physical mutilation).
Conservative media personality Jack Posobiec was banned from Twitter for the same reason in April after he called Disney “groomers” for opposing Florida’s bill to protect children from sexual material and ideology in schools. Twitter, along with Reddit, have since banned the phrase “groomer” as anti-LGBT “hate speech.”
