Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, has once again blocked all computers from the U.S. House of Representatives in order to stop malicious edits to popular pages on the site.
According to The Hill, Wikipedia instituted the ban on Wednesday night after users operating from the House IP address made a series of anti-trans edits to the page for Netflix series Orange is the New Black.
Anonymous users operating from the Republican-led House were persistently re-editing the page to slur trans actress Laverne Cox by mis-gendering her mentions on the show’s page. For instance, they changed Cox’s description from “real transgender woman” to “real man pretending to be a woman.”
One user in particular went on an anti-trans editing spree this week, changing entries on multiple pages related to transgenderism until Wikipedia administrators were forced to step in.
“An obvious transphobe is using this IP to edit the article on transphobia,” the Hill quoted one Wikipedia user as saying.
“I have no problem with Congressional staffers editing Wikipedia,” said another user to the anti-trans editor. “I have a problem only with YOU vandalizing Wikipedia.”
The person using the IP address responded — without revealing their identity — that the malicious edits were in fact “official business” endorsed by a member of the House. Their changes, they said, were intended to bring “fairness” to the discussion.
and these are the fucking children that run our country. this is despicable.
Goddddddd fuckingggf DaMMIT
On the plus side, the admins are not putting up with this bullshit. They stepped in. They said, “No, you can’t do that. We don’t care if you work for a Representative. We don’t care if you *are* one. If you want to be a bigoted troll, then GTFO. You’re not doing it here.”
I fucking love the movement in this scene. It’s so well done. You can see hiccup’s not consciously moving his hands. He’s doing it without thinking. It’s amazing that you can tell the difference between that and fully conscious movement in an animation. It’s hard enough to tell in real life. The acting in this scene is not forced. It’s not over the top. It’s just right. and it’s not even a real actor. I just… I’m so impressed.

Wow, I wonder how YOU feminists would react if a male told you this.
they tell us this every day of our lives
look at this fragile delicate flower of a man look at how precarious his value and identity is wonder at the marvel that is masculinity

I literally just woke up thank you for this
One time right after my alarm went off for school a random number I didn’t know called me and I answered and this played and then they hung up and I had a great day.
Romantic things to say to your partner.
