    Blocked from Facebook for three days for identifying myself as a ‘poofter’, while being indirectly slurred by homophobic trolls.

    > Someone indirectly calls me a ‘crybaby poofter’ for disagreeing with a politicians’ use of homophobic slurs.

    > I then go on to refer to myself as ‘that crybaby poofter’ he was talking about.

    > Comment is reported

    > Blocked from using Facebook for 3 days.

    Facebook uses bots and algorithms to address these issues, so they are not put in context. Which means some forum troll has thought it’d be really funny to get me blocked, for identifying myself with the slur they hurled at me.

    I’ve reported this mistake to Facebook. But still, oh dear.

    I’m sure they’ll send you a note correcting the mistake in about five days.

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

    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)

    Oh my god

    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:

    (source)

    (source)

    (source)

    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.

    I am going to point out that this may not be a Senator or Representative. Indeed, while it is not out of the ballpark of possibility (even with Helms dead and buried), it is much more likely to be a staffer for one of them.

    Given the nature of the edits, all of which rely on arguments popularized by Janice Raymond and recently regurgitated by Jeffreys, we can be certain they are most likely not working for a Republican.

    And that they are not men.

    I’m 90% on it being a Democrat congresswoman or one of her aids.

    I’m skeptical based on the limited information, but this discussion with the vandal strongly implies it’s a TERF and woman.

    For those of you who didn’t think “mansplain” was condescending and sexist enough… also try to wrap your head around the logic of men being confused about feminsm because they’re frightened and confused by things that aren’t about men, which feminism obviously isn’t (not about).
Also I’m starting to understand why Tumblr changed the note from “recommended for you” to “Here’s a blog.”  Yes, here’s a blog.

    The phrase “rubber bullets” is often used to describe what are more accurately termed “rubber-coated metal bullets”, heavy steel projectiles with a minimal coating of 1mm or 2mm of rubber, that are regularly used to lethal effect alongside — not instead of — live ammunition.

    Rubber-coated metal bullets are fired from metal tubes placed on the end of high-velocity rifles such as the M-16s commonly used by Israeli troops. Tubes contain around 8 rubber-coated, cylindrical, steel projectiles, which are powered by blank rounds fired from the gun’s magazine.

    [….]

    Writing in the medical journal, The Lancet, [doctors] said firing the bullets at civilians made it “impossible to avoid severe injuries to vulnerable body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso, leading to substantial mortality, morbidity and disability.”

    They added: “We reported a substantial number of severe injuries and fatalities inflicted by use of rubber bullets when vulnerable upper-body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso were struck.

    “This type of ammunition should therefore not be considered a safe method of crowd control.”
