PayPal and its subsidiary Venmo are continuing to support the pro-pedophile organization Prostasia after shutting down the accounts of the Free Speech Union this week.
Prostasia, which promotes sexual “relationships” between children and adults, remains on good business terms with the multinational financial technology company.
The far-left organization is one of the leading voices in promoting the normalization of pedophiles, or “minor-attracted persons” or “MAPs” as the group labels them.
Yet despite Prostasia’s predatory agenda, PayPal is continuing to back the organization.
Meanwhile, PayPal and Venmo have culled several organizations this week that don’t align with the fintech companies’ values.
The Free Speech Union and Gays Against Groomers have both had their accounts shut down by PayPal this week.
Gays Against Groomers is an organization comprised entirely of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and even transgender people who wish to distance themselves from the agenda to indoctrinate children with far-left “woke” ideology.
It launched in 2022 and has had meteoric success in attracting followers to its cause.
The group is exposing the harm done to children by some radicals hiding behind the LGBTQ banner.
Gays Against Groomers describes itself as “a coalition of gays against the sexualization, indoctrination, and medicalization of children.”
On Tuesday, Gays Against Groomers wrote that PayPal and Venmo had dropped them for “violating” their user agreement.
JUST IN: While we’re not allowed to conduct business on PayPal, guess who is… an organization that offers a support group for “MAPs”@PayPal banned us for being against pedophilia, but allow actual pedophile groups to use their services unabated.#BoycottPayPal pic.twitter.com/b6csNR73cv

“The fact that an organization comprised solely of gay people, with trans contributors as well, is being banned from the largest payment processors in the country for opposing the sexualization and mutilation of children is shocking, to say the least,” said Gays Against Groomers’ founder Jaimee Michell.
“On top of that, we discovered tonight that while we have been banned, an organization that literally runs a support group for pedophiles is able to use PayPal’s services.
“It tells you all you need to know about the state of our society right now,” Michell added.

The gay rights advocacy group is the latest to be targeted by PayPal for challenging dominant leftist narratives surrounding sex and gender.
The accounts of the Free Speech Union, a U.K. body that defends and supports members who are unfairly targeted or discriminated against by their employers for exercising their legal right to free speech, have also been shut down by PayPal.
Late on Tuesday evening, the union announced via its social media platforms that PayPal was blocking payments to the body through its platform for “alleged violations of the company’s acceptable use policy.”
Speaking to GB News’s Mark Dolan on Tuesday, Toby Young, the founder of the Free Speech Union, explained he had received an email from PayPal explaining that his personal account had been frozen.
Young revealed that a £600 ($660) balance was also effectively confiscated with no method to withdraw it.
Shortly after, Young received notifications that two companies he founded, the Daily Sceptic and the Free Speech Union, had also had their accounts indefinitely suspended.
Young told GB News that approximately a quarter of the Daily Sceptic’s donors used PayPal as a payment method.
He said the move meant that he would now be unable to support the company.
Approximately one-third of the 9,500 members of the Free Speech Union paid their recurring membership fees via the payment platform.
Young said PayPal’s actions have seriously impeded the group’s ability to receive much-needed income.
“This is the new battlefront in the ongoing war against free speech… financial services being withdrawn from people,” Young told the news outlet.

In a statement, the Free Speech Union claimed it had been “demonetized by the financial intermediary PayPal for daring to stand up for free speech.”
It urged members to submit complaints about UK PayPal’s actions to the company.
“Not only can you not express certain views, you can’t defend people’s right to express them,” Young later claimed in a tweet.
GB News host Brazier lamented the fact that the Free Speech Union was being “canceled by PayPal.”
He claimed that “no single organization — within or without government — has done more over the last couple of years to stand up for basic freedoms than this one.”
Evolutionary biologist Colin Wright and writer Ian Miles Cheong have also had their accounts permanently closed by PayPal without notice.
Ironically, PayPal sported a banner that said “Open For All” on Twitter during Pride month in June, which their U.K. account still displays.
Yet, while critics of leftist ideology are denied the ability to conduct commerce, PayPal remains open for business with the openly pedophilic advocacy group Prostasia.
Prostasia accepts donations through their website by credit card, check, Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, as well as PayPal and Venmo.
Of particular concern is a forum hosted by Prostasia called the MAP Support Club (MSC), which is described as a “chat-based peer-support network for teenagers and adults who self-identify as being attracted to younger minors.”
MAP Support Club invites “minor-attracted people” aged 13 years old and up to participate in online chats about “minor attraction.”
“It is intended as a community where MAPs can connect with one another, offer and receive support in difficult times, and overall just enjoy a relaxed atmosphere where one can have fun and not be judged,” reads the MAP Support Club website.
Additionally, on Tuesday, Gays Against Groomers announced that Google had also disabled their account, which included the use of their Gmail email address, for “violating” their policies.
Gays Against Groomers has also been suspended from Twitter numerous times, purportedly for their use of the recently-banned word “groomer.”
Twitter was pressured to ban the use of the word as a targeted insult after Reddit and other platforms recently banned the word, claiming that it is an “anti-LGBT slur.”
While “groomer” is sometimes used to describe the process of adults initiating a sexual or predatory relationship with minors, the word can also be used to describe a process of indoctrinating naive children into cultish ideologies.
On Twitter, the word had been increasingly used in the latter sense to describe those indoctrinating children into gender ideology, which is a belief system based on the falsehood that whether someone is a man, boy, woman, or girl has nothing to do with one’s biology, but is instead determined by one’s subjective and undefinable “gender identity.”
Attracting even more drama, PayPal last week threatened to pull their sponsorship of the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team if owner Robert Sarver remained part of the franchise at the end of his suspension.
In a statement, PayPal President and CEO Dan Schulman pointed to his company’s “strong record of combatting racism, sexism and all forms of discrimination.”
He said Sarver’s conduct is “unacceptable and in conflict with our values.”
“In light of the findings of the NBA’s investigation, we will not renew our sponsorship should Robert Sarver remain involved with the Suns organization, after serving his suspension,” Schulman said.
There has been a notable increase in user bannings after PayPal partnered with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in 2021 to “fight extremism and protect marginalized communities.”
According to their press release, the ADL said the collaboration “launched a research effort to address the urgent need to understand how extremist and hate movements throughout the U.S. are attempting to leverage financial platforms to fund criminal activity.”
