Christian author, speaker, and conservative commentator, Allie Beth Stuckey, was banned from Twitter on Thursday for “misgendering” a transgender athlete.
On August 2, Stuckey tweeted in reference to transgender athlete, Laurel Hubbard, as a “he” and subsequently received a suspension notice from Twitter for breaking the rules against “hateful conduct.”
“You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease,” the email stated.
In response to her suspension, Stuckey said in an interview with Faithwire that she would not be budging on this issue because “Biology matters. Sex differences matter,” and “Facts matter.”
“As a Christian, I know two things to be true,” Stuckey wrote in an email. “One, all people are made in God’s image, no matter their stated identity and, therefore, have immense value and, two, men are men and women are women.”
Stuckey has become a prominent voice within Reformed Evangelical circles, even speaking at G3 Conferences.
In 2019, Stuckey made headlines after calling out Beth Moore for holding to “unbiblical, worldly theology,” stating:
This is one of quite a few myths that Christian women believe, not as much Christian men…a lot of women preach the Bible with this me-first or me-centered mentality–that everything in the Bible is about them, and they’ve kind of reduced Jesus to this emotionally supportive boyfriend that is almost like their gal-pal who just sits around and tells them how awesome their hair is and how great their personality is. I’ve always disliked that about female Christianity because that’s not who Jesus is.
