OKAY BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW ATTRACTIVE ROSE’S CHAOTIC EVIL HUMAN WIZARD DUDE IS FOR A MOMENT.
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.
This should spread because
- Stop misinformation and hate speech about trans people
- Congress done fucked up and that should be remembered around election time
- Whether or not your teacher allows it as a source, Wikipedia holds itself to standards. Because lots of people rely on it for information.
200 protesters continue to march for justice on Thursday night, Aug. 21st.
I wonder how many people had completely forgotten what this whole thing is actually about and expected this to end when the police stopped attacking them. This isn’t over, it’s LITERALLY just starting. The police raids weren’t the issue, they were distracting from the issue. This won’t stop until the murderer and coward Darren Wilson faces actual justice.
this was two days ago, psa that this is still going on and is still staying peaceful

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.
