I wasn’t actually silenced. More accurately, I was cancelled. Cancelled by Eventbrite for my talk “Truth or Consequences?” at Calvary Chapel of the Canyons in Silverado, California. According to Eventbrite, my event “is not permitted” because “it violates our community guidelines and terms of service,” which includes “events that discriminate against, harass, disparage, threaten, incite violence against, or otherwise target individuals or groups based on…gender identity.” Eventbrite went on to threaten Calvary Chapel, my host, with “suspension or termination” of its account for any further “violations of our guidelines.” Apparently, I had touched the transgender third rail.

I immediately knew why Evenbrite got its panties in a bunch because the summary of my topic begins with “Transgender or realism?” and continues with “We will live in a world full of confusion…gender confusion, parental confusion, sexual confusion…a time when right is wrong and wrong is right.” Couldn’t be more clear than that. And I stand by it. Every word.
