Man cannot be Man Of The Year

Newsweek reports:
Satire website The Babylon Bee had been suspended from Twitter, according to the CEO, Seth Dillon.

Dillon took to his personal Twitter account on Sunday evening to explain why the page had been suspended and his reaction to the news.

The page had been temporarily banned for a tweet mocking Dr. Rachel Levine, who identifies as transgender. Levine serves as an admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.

I just received this notice that we’ve been locked out of our account for “hateful conduct.” — Seth Dillon (@SethDillon) March 20, 2022

Dillon posted an image of the message Twitter sent the page and captioned it: "I just received this notice that we've been locked out of our account for 'hateful conduct.'"

The offending tweet was:
The Babylon Bee's Man of the Year is Rachel Levine
His real name is Richard Leland Levine, and he fathered two kids under that name. He is Jewish, so he was circumsized as a baby. Wikipedia says he is transgender, but not whether he tried to change his sex.

Women's Health magazine has a useful glossary of 70 Sex Terms You Should Know If You Don't Already. However it does not attempt to define woman. Instead it uses terms like "someone with a vagina". Maybe it will have to change the name of the magazine to Health of People with Vaginas.
