I'm a mermaid who lives in Portland and loves Tegan and Sara, sunflowers, reading, singing, and art. I'm a professional fangirl and an aspiring sex educator and any slut shaming, sex negativity, body shaming, and LGBTQ+ hate isn't tolerated here. Other than that, I'm usually not that bad.

picked up this baby
isn’t there a part of the bible where god gets mad at a fig tree for not having any figs on it and curses the fig tree?
yeah there legit is that’s 100% true
Oh my god
last time we reblogged this we got anon hate from the christian community. You guys really are passionate about your figs.
Wikipedia has blocked all computers from the House of Representatives from editing any of their content — because someone with an IP address from the House has been trolling the site with transphobic edits.
Since earlier this week, comments have been appearing misgendering Laverne Cox, using slurs on pages about trans people, changing the definition of gender identity disorder, and citing notorious asshole Gavin McInnes in descriptions of trans people and transphobia. Wikipedia editors were forced to intervene when the person (or people) continued to make edit after edit.
This is the third time THIS SUMMER the House has been blocked from Wikipedia for “disruptive editing” by anonymous users.
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.
“There’s nothing illegal about editing Wikipedia to promote official business that has been explicitly authourized [sic] by the Representative,” the userwrote.
“When you have other Representatives trying to push for laws such as [the Employment Non-Discrimination Act],” the user continued, “or when you have the [European Union] using neocolonialist methods to impose transgenderism on the nation of Georgia through a visa agreement, it’s all the more important.” …
After this most recent banning, the outlawed anti-trans user wrote, “Blocked because I disagreed with the trans-lobby? These days, If I complain about a man using the womyn’s restroom then I’m cosidered transphobic and get called a TERF. This has been happening a lot lately here in the halls of Congress. If feeling uncomfortable about some creeper coming into the same bathroom as me is considered transphobic, then why is transphobia considered a bad thing? I wouldn’t be surprised if the Admin who banned this IP is trans. If she is a real woman, then she should should be following real Feminists like Julie Bindel, not sellouts to the trans lobby like Anita Sarkeesian. People need to understand that transgenderism is being promoted by the Patriarchy to diminish the experiences of real womyn.”
Our elected officials, my friends.
how is this real oh my god
This is just weird. Someone in the House offices knows what TERFs are and uses “womyn”?
I smell an even bigger troll…
#not that I’d like to see a TERF working there#but this feels like a double-trolling#or maybe it’s just that I haven’t seen someone use ‘womyn’ since the mid-’90s
the person doing the edits claimed it was “endorsed” by a member of the House, not a member doing it… so i wouldn’t be surprised if it was some sort of intern or secretary responsible - they know it’s from the house because of the IP address (although it’s also possible a representative could also be doing it and obscuring the fact it’s them - House representatives represent specific local districts and I’ve seen plenty of instances of House members having extremist or outdated views).
I also don’t find it that surprising or weird given how influential terf Janice Raymond’s paper on “transsexualism” was on US policy: http://theterfs.com/terfs-trans-healthcare/
Sure, that was in the 80s, but the idea terfs don’t have influence beyond the internet or michfest is inaccurate.
oops wrong blog

Somewhere between the first and second movie, I bet Hiccup was pretty pleased when he finally grew taller than Astrid. :)
