I will reblog this everyday
I’m grossed out by the kind of stuff tumblr does to its users over an extended period of time
Grammar and punctuation is completely lost on some people, to the point where their posts are unreadable and irritating
And tumblr fosters and feeds this incredible narcissism and need to impress people- people who don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
reblog if misogyny and the wage gap are ruining your chill aesthetic
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.
Look at what the wise leaders of the free world choose to do with their leisure time
so this is what congress is doing instead of their jobs
this is fucked up and i have no doubt that every single member of the house of representatives is a transmisogynist but an IP address originating in the house of representatives does not mean a congressperson was making the edits….it could be someone in the mail room or like someone using the wi-fi in a house of representatives bathroom u know. and it’s not a congress “man” bc shes stated in the talk pages that her transmisogyny gets her labeled a “TERF.” honestly i wouldnt be surprised if it was just some weirdo TWEF intern making edits on her smartphone in her spare time like….why is this news
