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 Congressional rep 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 they replace it with?  Hate speech.

The Congressperson 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 they 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 hell fucking no.

(I changed “Congressman” to “Congressional rep/Congressperson” and “he” to “they” in the above text and title because it’s not clear who exactly made the change.)

hey cis people it’s me again


mentioning that you’re cis and putting your pronouns in your sidebar/about make you like 500% more trustworthy bc it means that you’re a) likely educated about trans issues and b) working to denormalize being cis [bc generally only trans people are expected to mention their pronouns and gender]

it’s also really helpful in terms of accessibility for disabled people like me and for folks on mobile
