Waiting for Free Speech Advocates

Wikipedia Declares War On Women, Gives Anti-Feminist Males Control Over Gender And Sexuality Entries

Waiting.

This week, Wikipedia’s male-dominated Arbitration Committee voted to ban five female editors from contributing to any entry on the site that has to do with women. That’s right, Wikipedia has declared war on women and feminism in favor of sexist a**holes. One editor even refers to these women as the Five Horsemen of the apocalypse. How very “neutral” of them, right?

I'm sure they'll be here any minute now.

Yesterday, ArbCom announced its preliminary decision. A panel of fourteen arbitrators – at least 11 of whom are men – decided to give GamerGate everything they’d wished for. All of the Five Horsemen are sanctioned; most will be excluded not only from “Gamergate broadly construed” but from anything in Wikipedia touching on “gender or sexuality, broadly construed.”

They must be right around the corner, ready to tear into Wikipedia for censoring people! Actually removing the rights of people to have an influence on information that millions rely on to shape their worldview! Surely they will arrive any second, all up in arms over this breach of basic freedom!

Oh wait, I've found them! They're all in the comments section, complaining about bias in the way Addicting Info wrote about it. LOL.

I have, in the past, donated to Wikipedia. I have now let them know that by allowing free run of the misogyny version of the holocaust deniers, I will no longer support them
