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.)
