LGBT Activist Group Says There Isn’t Enough Censorship on Social Media

By Robert Schmad 


A prominent LGBT activist group on Wednesday argued that social media platforms are not “safe” for “LGBTQ users” and called for increased censorship of right-wing content as a remedy.

GLAAD, an NGO that formally collaborates with Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok and works to “accelerate acceptance” of the “LGBTQ community,” called on tech companies to amend their algorithms so they don’t “amplify harmful content, extremism and hate.” GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis singled out narratives advocated by “right wing media and politicians” as threats warranting content moderation. The group urged social media companies to prohibit individuals from referring to transgender individuals by their biological pronouns and using their pre-transition names.

GLAAD issued its call for censorship in its annual “Social Media Safety Index” report, which “provides recommendations for the industry at large and reports on LGBTQ user safety across the five major social media platforms.”
