Let me say this up front – no, this is not, on its own, a big deal. It’s the kind of exaggeration, bragging, and general stupidity that happens on Twitter all the time.
BUT, in the context that this idiot later went on to whine that a straight news commentator was ruining his life over jokes on a YouTube channel, it shows how hypocritical he is.
Here’s what he said in 2016:
God bless queer people. We grow up getting harassed and bullied but BOY is it good practice for terrorizing shitty straight journalists.

In a later tweet on the same thread, he says that he’s talking about using GIFS to mock straight journalists on Twitter.
But how is that any different than what Crowder did? It’s speech, and probably his target didn’t like it. So should he be banned from Twitter? Under the rules of engagement he espouses, yes.
For a really thorough obliteration of Maza’s idiocy, check out the latest Mad Dogs and Englishmen podcast with Charles C.W. Cooke and Kevin Williamson, they really dismantle his argument with logic and reason.
