The Twitter account of a politician in Spain was temporarily suspended after he tweeted that a ‘man cannot get pregnant’ because he has ‘no womb or eggs’.
Francisco José Contreras was tweeting in response to an article about the first transgender male to have given birth in Spain.
The now-deleted tweet said, ‘This is a lie. Man cannot get pregnant. Man have no womb or eggs.’
Contreras explained that Twitter suspended his account for 12 hours, arguing that his tweet was ‘inciting hatred’.
Twitter said further breaches of its ‘community standards’ could lead to Contreras being permanently banned.
