Activist Mommy Accounts on Twitter, Facebook

In Aug. 2017, conservative activist Grace Elizabeth Johnston, commonly known as the "Activist Mommy," had her Twitter account suspended after she criticized a Teen Vogue editor who approved of publishing an article that encouraged youth to have anal sex.

In a tweet posted Aug. 16 of last year, Johnston sarcastically congratulated Teen Vogue digital editor Philip Bicardi for getting an award from a gay magazine for his promotion of anal sex among children.

According to Twitter, Johnston's account was suspended because the tweet violated its user "rules," which forbid harassment and abuse.

"Of course, actual videos of children being abused can be found on Twitter. But calling out an editor for promoting teen sodomy is worth a suspension?" posted Johnston on her website in response.

This is not the only time Johnston has had to deal with social troubles, for in Feb. 2017, Facebook froze her account for several days because of comments she had made about homosexuality. 

"It would be one thing if Facebook said, 'We're liberals. This is our page and we can do whatever we want. It's our property.' I would appreciate that at least they were being honest and transparent," said Johnston to The Christian Post at the time.

"But no, they lie and say 'we're unbiased.' But when Christians report nudity or pictures of Donald Trump assassinated with a bullet through his head, we get responses that say, 'This does not violate Facebook's community guidelines' and the post remains.'"

By contrast, when January Johnston complained about a Facebook group threatening to burn her alive, the social media site replied to her that the group did not violate their standards.
