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.)
one time i saw a couple of ambiguously brown kids skate board towards each other and then wrap their arms around each others’ waists as they skateboarded side by side down the sidewalk and someone just yelled “FUCK YOU YOU’RE SO HAPPY” at them and that’s where i need to be at
Q:how did you get hired at archer and become a boarder? did you apply or something? i can't seem to find a website at all! love the show and your coworkers seem like lots of fun from their tumblrs.
Aw man thanks! We’re all a bunch of nerds but we have fun. Well the way I got hired was a little unorthodox… Basically someone at the studio who had a say in who gets hired found my tumblr, saw my art, and was like “Hey can you do illustrator and would you like to test for a job here?” so I did! And then I got a job as an illustrator and eventually made it into boards which is what I love doing!
Same lady who recommended me for an illustrator also says a lot that the animation industry is highly incestuous, meaning networking and contacts are everything. Just meeting people, keep a business card on you at all times, get all over the internet, that sort of thing. Sorry this is my first fulltime job so I don’t consider myself a real expert on the subject.
Just adding my two cents on the “networking in everything” point: I’ve yet to get a job in the animating world via the traditional ‘fill out an application, wait for a phone call’ method. Every job I’ve had has been because someone either recommended me to a higher-up or someone asked if I’d like to do an interview. Networking and connections are literally everything in this industry.

Q:Karina!!! I had a question... I absolutely love your storyboarding style: easy, concise, and clear! I was wondering when you start drawing the face, do you start with the eyes or the outline of the face?? Thanks again! I really just follow your style!
Heyyy there Ashby! Ahh thank you! When I draw faces I usually like to focus on the eyes first if it’s an acting piece and then draw the rest of the face to match the acting or attitude in the eyes (especially in a C.U. shot). For wide shots I usually do the gesture of the full body and then go back in to do the face. The face by then is usually an oval with the eyes on top of it :). Thank you for your question! I hope this helps
