NEW VIDEO: “Exposing YouTuber Rumors" ft. Caspar Lee - reblog if you want me to stalk your blog… I can’t wait to see what rumors y’all discuss on your blogs… ;]

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.

I went to Pizza Hut for supper. After the waitress took our order, I said “thank you, ma’am.” She then proceeded to lecture me about not assuming that she is a woman just because she looks like one. And told me to not misgender her. I naturally asked to speak to her manager and I told her about what had happened. The manager thankfully comped my pizza and wings. But when the waitress returned, she brought this slip.
Tumblr is escaping into the real world, my friends.
