Entrepreneur sues Mark Zuckerberg for stifling free speech on Facebook
Jason Fyk @JasonFyk

 As I announced this morning on Fox and Friends, I am bringing a lawsuit against Facebook in the hope of putting an end to the Double Standards and clear abuse of their responsibilities. Silencing people for any reason is simply wrong!

Bigleaguepolitics.com reports:

 “Facebook is unlawfully silencing people for their own financial gain… Facebook is not above the law and must be held accountable for its wrongs,” read a statement from Fyk’s attorney as part of the Fox & Friends segment. “This is a true case of David versus Goliath.”

 Fyk, who appeared on the show with his attorney, said that before his page was shut down in late 2016, it was the fifth most active web page on the entire internet.

“There was no malice involved, there was no specific intent – we just got on there to entertain,” he said. “The reality is, they wanted the newsfeed to push their ads into the newsfeed, so they needed to move everybody out of the way. There’s only a finite amount of space that goes into everybody’s feed, and they have to control it.”

S ean Callagy, attorney for Fyk, said that his client was “unplugged” so that the social media titan could “cut themselves in” to his business for free.

“Everything [on Facebook] is about having the dependable, consistent reach to get to people for advertisers,” Callagy said. “So [Fyk’s] advertisers disappeared, but Facebook kept that reach for themselves, and/or redistributed it to other people.”

 At the time his page was shut down, Fyk had over 25 million viewers and was earning hundreds of thousands of dollars per month from ad revenue.

ALERT ALERT

‘Watch: Female HS Student Says She ‘Felt Violated’ After Seeing Trans Student’s Penis In Locker Room

“I could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear and what was underneath it”

 A Pennsylvania student attending Honesdale High School has filed a complaint with the United States Department of Education Office of Civil Rights after her school administrators allowed a trans woman, a biological male who feels he is a woman, to dress and undress in the female locker room.

The student said she felt violated and scared when she looked across the aisle in the locker room to discover a member of the opposite sex in his underwear. In a video released by her legal team, she says it was obvious he was biologically male, as she “could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear and what was underneath it.”

“It was the first period, and I had gym class,” said the student, “And I walked in with all my friends, and while I was putting on my pants, I heard a man’s voice, so I turned around, and he’s standing there on the opposite aisle looking at me.”

“I glanced down and I could tell that he was wearing women’s underwear, and what was beneath it.”

She added that having a man apparently gawking at her while in various stages of undress made her feel unsafe.

“When I knew that a man was looking at me, I felt very violated, and very scared,” she said. “Especially looking at me while I am getting dressed.”

Her attorney said that this should be considered a form of sexual harassment in the eyes of the law.

“Opening up restrooms and locker room facilities to members of the opposite sex is sexual harassment,” said Andrea Shaw, the high school student’s attorney, “And like many forms of sexual harassment the girls in this school have little power over their situation.”

The attorney also notes that the school’s only attempt to remedy the situation was to allow the female high school student to wait to change until the biologically male student was finished, making her chronically late to gym class.

According to local media, the school district’s superintendent claims he is not able to comment on the case, but stated that the school is following the letter of the law. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court is expected to take up the case, otherwise biologically male students will continue to be allowed to dress and undress with biologically females.
