Someone with an IP address sourcing to the House of Representatives just edited the Orange Is the New Black Wikipedia page with the telling summary of “not a woman.”
That’s right, this Congressman edited out a sentence hailing the show for including “the first ever women-in-prison narrative to be played by a real transgender woman.” What did he replace it with? Hate speech.
The Congressman called Cox a “man pretending to be a woman,” and linked to an offensive article by National Review Online aptly titled “Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman.”
The change has since been reversed and the IP address has been banned from editing Wikipedia for a month, but you can see the original edit he made in the link above.
The change was spotted by a Twitter bot which tweets out links any time a Congressional IP address edits Wikipedia.
Spread this like wildfire.
Oh my god
i don’t know if everyone else knows about this or not, but i just went onto the twitterbot’s page and this is not just about laverne cox, someone from congress has been editing multiple articles concerning transgender people (mostly women) and laverne was probably the first trans celebrity they could think of, other edits have been made including:
this is not just about laverne cox, do not just make it about laverne cox, this is not one person being transphobic towards a celebrity we like, there is someone in congress with an agenda of misinformation actively trying to slander the trans community through wikipedia.
People aren’t talkin about the news, they’re talking about what they think the news is. There is no news channel saying “This is what happened, draw your own conclusions.” We have made this country so bereft of critical thinking, that now we have a problem where we have to teach them to think for themselves.
We have no unified authority, or problem solvers. We have congressman discussing environmentalism, when they don’t understand half the problems our earth is going through. We go to congress instead of going to people who have worked their whole LIFE trying to solve these problems. When it comes to racism, we’re asking a panel of white dudes, when it comes to sexism and woman’s rights we ask a panel of white priests on what they think. IT’S INSANITY! We ask people who are not in the arena they should be speaking in/for.
AND THAT’S WHY WE DON’T trust the media, it’s because they’re not in the arena of black experience, and they don’t care about the black experience, UNTIL something bad happens and they have the tools to paint us as destructive, ugly and evil!

sigh I really gotta go to sleep tho because I have to study for the board this weekend and set up my uniform and also I apparently have to move my furniture Sunday night for a barracks inventory on Monday, and I also really want to try to hang out with my roommate from AIT tomorrow because she finally got out of reception and she lives in the barracks across from me and I’M! EXCITED! I missed her she was the best roommate I’ve had in the military and she’s really great and she texted and said she has BIG NEWS to tell me so I’m wondering if it’s about her awesome girlfriend (who bakes THE BEST brownies, she legit cooked brownies and mailed them overnight to her and it was super cool and they were SO MOIST AND CHOCOLATEY)
BUT YEAH I’M GOING TO BED NOW
remember how I was gonna go to bed at 10 because I haven’t slept very well the last three days and I have had a massive headache all day which a nap did not make go away????
and then I saw James wrote a fic like 4 weeks ago about the DC crew and I screamed for 10 minutes and now an hour and 20 minutes later I’m still not in bed????
if you tHINK im gonna rewatch this 50 episode anime with you just because you havent seen it then you are absolutely right sit down we are marathoning this.
So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.
It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.
Pokemon can only say their own names, even in different languages.
NO I HAVE TOO MANY IDEAS ABOUT GLEN TO TYPE ABOUT THEM AT ONCE AUGH!!!
- ok so I feel like when he and Stel get ready to adventure Like Grownups, they both agree that they need to build/repair their own ship because it’s more special that way. So Glen winds up living on Stel’s planet for a while??? While they repair a ship together to get ready to go on cool space adventures??? Tuna yea or nay. (HAHAH GOD it’s like he moved out of his parents house to live with his girlfriend I’m CRACKING UP especially because HA. HA. I have a scene in my head with Somnam and Glen having a Very Heartfelt Conversation “You’re A Man Now son, also I love you” lmaooooo stab me)
- Veronica is a must because “DC has AIs”, also apparently Veronica means “bringing victory” good job sleepy brain for just nabbing that outta the air, and I s2g Glen talks about the ship/Veronica like they’re the same entity and also half-jokingly acts like that entity is Glen and Stel’s baby. “Omg, Stel, look at her. look at our baby.” *slaps himself against the hull to give the ship a hug* “She will be the prettiest girl at the dance.” He turns to look at Stel all misty eyed and she just pinches his cheek. You dweeb.
