Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
I think we all needed this
anime trope episodes: the beach episode, the festival episode, the episode where someone doesn’t know how to cook
western cartoon trope episodes: the episode where someone has several copies of themselves made, the episode where inanimate objects come to life, the episode that is a homage to a movie from the 1950s, the episode where someone is shrunk down to microscopic levels and placed inside the body of another person

Transphobic U.S. Congressman edits Wikipedia to include hate speech for Laverne Cox
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.
(articles on The A.V. Club, Yahoo, and NY Daily News)
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.

unfinished fics? I love those. the way they just (clenches fists)
I, for one, will never understand why there exist people who will push your buttons until they pop right out of you like disgruntled fleas, and then wonder aloud to themselves and others what could have happened to make you such an angry person.
There’s pain in…
does it ever kill you when you make conversation with the person youve been looking forward to talking to the entire day and they just kinda brush you off
