Social media giant Facebook has censored a post shared by Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., after she spoke out against biological males contending in women's sports.

"Biological men have no place in women's sports," Blackburn wrote, linking to a donation page that urged conservatives to "fight back against Big Tech censorship."

The post, which was shared to Blackburn's personal Facebook page that has almost 150,000 followers, was removed, according to Facebook, for breaking "community standards on hate speech."

"Your post didn't follow our Community Standards on hate speech," Facebook wrote in an alert to Blackburn. "No one else can see your post."

In an announcement to Fox News Digital about the censorship of the post, Blackburn announced she declines to be "silenced or threatened by Silicon Valley oligarchs."

"Big Tech and the Democrats are colluding to radically transform America," Blackburn announced. "They want to silence and censor conservatives for speaking out against their woke agenda. It does not take a biologist to know the difference between a man and a woman, and I will not be silenced or threatened by Silicon Valley oligarchs. Biological men have no place in women's sports."

Blackburn, who garnered attention in March after asking future Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to "provide a definition for the word woman," has been a vocal advocate of protecting female sports in America and has repeatedly spoken out against biological males competing in them.

Jackson made the remark throughout a Tuesday exchange with Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) in which the lawmaker asked the DC Circuit Court of Appeals judge point-blank: “Can you provide a definition for the word "woman?"

After a short back-and-forth, Jackson ultimately announced: “No, I can’t.”

“You can’t?” Blackburn asked.

“Not in this context. I’m not a biologist,” Jackson stated.

In an attempt to highlight the problems surrounding female sports permitting biological males to compete, Blackburn interviewed Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who tied with transgender swimmer Lia Thomas for fifth place in the 200-yard freestyle NCAA swimming championships in April on the "Unmuted with Marsha" podcast.

Since taking office, Blackburn has opposed censorship in all forms from Big Tech companies like Facebook and Twitter.

Blackburn addressed a letter in July to President Biden denouncing his administration’s collaboration with Facebook to rid the platform of COVID-19 vaccine "misinformation" and proposing the work could violate the First Amendment.

"These revelations are deeply concerning," the Tennessee Republican announced in the letter. "The blatant actions by your administration to work with Big Tech companies to censor Americans’ free speech are shocking — and arguably a violation of the First Amendment."
