CENSORSHIP: Shadow & content ban
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
Because I talk about mental health, the damages and stereotypes attached, LGBTQ+ issues, and the fact I’m a human that society says is ‘wrong’.
I’m black, queer, non-binary, interracial lesbian couple, disabled, brain tumour & have a mental illness of ADHD and Tourettes.
I also don’t think they like the fact I speak on such realness and for some reason, it’s like they don’t want this exposed; to speak on stigmas, and stereotypes and help save people’s lives. I believe this is a good thing and I continue to push and be the influencer making a change and creating a new normal for us people of difference.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
It lost me sharing this important message with certain people, people who benefit from my mental health and LGBTQ posts… just the full overall thing man and it’s upsetting because it makes people think what your saying is BS
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
That different people like me exist & no matter what I will be resilient in making sure, people around the globe who are like me, feel accepted, heard & inspired – and be ready for the new normal. Because we’re not going anywhere
