In more tranny nonsense, Wikipedos recently changed all the pronouns in the Billy Dee Williams article to "they" from "he" because he made some offhand comment about gender causing these delusional freaks to think he was "gender fluid."

When he was asked about this his response was literally "what the hell is gender fluid?" As would anyone's response be if asked anything about dumb tumblr/Wikipedo memes.

Here's the talk page where lunatics were arguing about whether they should immediately just start changing pronouns in an article whenever they decide someone is some kind of tranny based on absolutely nothing:

Assuming somebody's "gender" is offensive. Unless TRAs want to trans somebody who isn't trans identified (mostly historical gender non conforming LGB individuals and women who disguised themselves as men in order to be able to take up professions that otherwise wouldn't be able to them), that is; then it's suddenly okay

Speaking of gender, I'm sorry if someone already mentionned this but seem then Wikipedia hadn't fixed its gender gap.
https://www.fastcompany.com/90429161/wikipedia-still-hasnt-fixed-its-colossal-gender-gap ( http://archive.ph/uO3GT )

In its 19 years of existence, Wikipedia has become the world’s most-used reference work—and the ninth most-visited website period. That’s a tribute to the community that creates its articles. But among contributors, the gender imbalance is gigantic—and it shows in the articles they produce.

Of the over 135,000 active editors on the site, surveys indicate that only 8.5% to 16% are female. In 2018, Wikimedia disclosed that only 17.67% of over 1.5 million biographies on the site are about women. The issue has been getting attention recently because even when female editors do contribute to the site, their work is often heavily edited—or pages written about women are flagged for removal by their male counterparts.

Katherine Maher, CEO and executive director of Wikimedia, the nonprofit parent organization of Wikipedia, says that when Wikipedia started out, it wasn’t obvious it would need heavy policing. But that has changed as the site’s scale and impact on the world have grown. She spoke about this at the Web Summit conference in Lisbon early this month.
“We started out to build an encyclopedia; we didn’t start out to build a movement,” says Maher. “Yet there is this power that comes with this idea that knowledge creates a better place for the world, and that people want to participate in it.”

“If we’re here to build the world’s knowledge, then we have to invite the world in,” she adds. “So we’ve really consciously reoriented to say, ‘What can we do to break down systems of power and privilege that have excluded people from participating in knowledge historically, and how do we direct our resources to that?”

Wikimedia has launched initiatives to encourage more women to participate. The Wikimedia Gender Gap Project promotes groups such as Women in Red, WikiWomen’s Collaborative, and WikiProject Women, which aim to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of women and subjects related to them. Hosting edit-a-thons, these groups train women how to properly edit, and they focus on creating articles about women. They also encourage women all over the world to participate, providing a sense of community and support to those who may be on the border.

Even with these initiatives in place, Wikipedia’s gender imbalance persists. Dr. Jessica Wade started contributing to Wikipedia in 2018 and has since created over 800 articles on scientists, engineers, and mathematicians who are women, people of color, or LGBTQ+. She has a vast amount of experience in regard to the issues that women editors and subjects face when someone chooses to write about them.

Wikipedia 2009: this mentally ill woman was a mentally ill woman who woke up after almost dying due to a fever and thought she was a holy vessel of Jesus and God and renamed herself Public Universal Friend because of that
Wikipedia in the most current years of current years: this mentally ill woman was a trans pioneer who woke up after almost dying due to a fever and realized she was so gender special that she didn't even want to use pronouns, we must affirm her delusions

This has been making rounds in the troonosphere lately, including on Guillaume Labelle's Facebook.

Troons remind me of Mormons baptizing dead people. They're trying to troon out dead people, as if these people would have even had any concept of troon bullshit invented last Thursday.

Ah, 2009, I didn't think that year was any great shakes at the time but I sure miss it now.

That reminds me of the Wikipedia page I read for the WACs, the Women's Army Corps, it was written in this extremely glowing way different than Wikipedia's usual more neutral tone, it had the stench of the cult of feminism all over it.

How is this notable?
My guess is it's one of the few light-gun games for NES. Most people old enough to remember that remember Duck Hunt and nothing else. Maybe Hogan's Alley.

Also I've been pondering this for a while too. It isn't exactly purely dumb shit, it's semi-historical, but seriously, this:

Is this trivia? Is it a pointless list? Is it something that should be in an encyclopedia?

If you want to see genuinely dumb shit on Wikipedia, look at any article on Beatles albums. Now, I am personally a huge Beatles dicksucker and absolutely love every single Beatles album but just look at shit like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolver_(Beatles_album)

Holy Christ. They're just mindlessly dicksucking. It's terrible. Nothing involving the Beatles gets anything but absolute worship. How is this encyclopedic?
