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.
Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.
Does anyone else who subscribes to BKEW’s theories think this title is kind of silly? Like, okay, Time is the aspect of destruction. A Prince of Time destroys destruction. They are a destroyer who destroys destruction. They’re just asking to blow themselves up or some shit. Even more ridiculous: A Prince of Time also destroys through destruction! Yo dawg, I herd u liek destruction, so I put some destruction in your destruction so you can destroy while you destroy. I am just imagining an idiotic Prince of Time with five bajillion time clones just going completely kamikaze on shit.
"The Last Airbender" Movie Thread
Wait, so Shayamalama wasn’t the one ultimately to blame for ruining this movie? Reality has just been turned upside down.
What a twist!
So M Night was one of the very few people on the team who actually cared, but corporate executives fucked everything up to the point where he gave up?
That’s…actually really sad, especially since everyone blames HIM for the disaster.
The greatest Shyamalan twist of them all.
It’s a pretty good insight into actual problems in the movie industry.

KARKAT: GODDAMNIT I’M FUCKING LEAVING NOW, TO DO SOMETHING SENSIBLE WITH KANAYA OR SOMETHING, I DON’T KNOW. YOU CAN BE A DUMBASS ON YOUR OWN.
Yeah, it kinda got out of hand. But, well, it’s a Dave and Karkat conversation, so I think that’s kind of to be expected.
Yo. Thought I’d let you guys know that they’re planning on tricking us into deleting out System 32, which would render our computers useless.
Don’t fall for it.
Okay so 4chan users are willing to go as far as destroying multiple people’s equipment because of this little ‘fight’ over the internet.
I guess we should warn people in case they fall for it.
Do I want to know what this “fight” is about?
here we go
Oh hey look! It’s another update.
