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.

Did he think he was on Conservapedia?
(To Westboro Baptist Church)
"If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?"
Hills then took his suggestion a step further by making a generous offer. “I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset.”
Just ignore them, they want attention!
Hey everyone: for those of you who are wondering, the Westboro Baptist Church and gonna bandwagon on he death of Micheal Brown in order to promote even more hateful rhetoric. Please don’t let them do this. If you can, send the people of Ferguson support. If not, then signal boost this as a warning.

Peter Capaldi (the new Doctor Who) won an Oscar!
He won for Best Live-Action Short for a film he wrote and directed called “Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life”
"It’s a Wonderful Life" has another historical significance, it was one of the six times in history, two movies TIED and both won! The other film was "Trevor", an American LGBT dramedy about a boy who comes out as gay, that film late inspired "The Trevor Project".
The last time two movies tied for something was in 2013, when both “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Skyfall” won for Best Sound Editing.
