    Just plain awful and I'm glad that they got blocked. How immature of a stunt for them to pull. I mean, really?

    Have you all heard of Congress Edits?

    This was the comment in response to being banned from editing for a month.

    I want to know what a womyn is. It sounds like an animal to me... or a fruit. Seriously though, they play the classic victim card. Oh, of course, you're the one who is being oppressed when you are stopped from making hateful comments which you know are transphobic. These people need to grow up and furthermore grow a spine.

    Whether it was from Capitol Hill or not, I'm glad they got blocked. What a horrible thing to do.

    Can't you hear the sounds?
    Who was writing those edits, a 12-year-old?
    Also Capitol Hill is like the most LGBT-friendly place in Seattle. I wonder if someone used a proxy using that area specifically "for the lulz".

    I feel sorry for people who deface Wikipedia. I can't imagine what it would feel like to live in their minds.

    Obviously not. And it's a good thing they're not doing their job.

    Seriously? Transgenderism is promoted by the patriarchy? Someone really needs a reality check. I would really like an explanation of how the patriarchy, which boxes people into 2 categories and says everything possibly negative about anything remotely feminine, promotes anybody going outside their assigned box. I'm really trying to wrap my head around this. No, the patriarchy is HIGHLY against equality, something that's something core to transgenderism.

    First that's fucked up.

    Second... I don't even know what a TERF is and what the hell a womyn is? A fake transgender person or a slur or that we are pretending to just get into a restroom?
