“I spent about 80 percent of my time talking about Buffy. And the other 20 percent of the time, I was praying for someone else to bring her up, so I could talk about her more.”—Faith Lehane (via incorrectbuffyquotes)
First day of grad school and I’m totally overwhelmed. I have assignments due on Monday. One of my professors didn’t post the required text until today (thanks to Amazon Prime I will have it tomorrow and luckily it’s not too expensive) and the other hasn’t cleaned up his course since last Fall so everything is a year overdue according to Blackboard. Also, going from D2L to Blackboard is confusing as hell. Everything that used to take one step takes 3. WTH?
sexual education really needs to include hours of explaining how genitals actually work and showing pictures of how they can look and how there’s literally NO look that’s gross in any way. sexual education needs to bust myths that people actually think are true, for example that having a lot of sex makes a vagina “loose”. people should not be walking around thinking that shit like that is true when it’s the got dang year 2014.
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.
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.
They can’t pass a fucking budget because they are too busy hatemongering!
