Remember the kerfuffle over the now-deleted Marcus Bachmann wikibomb article? Bachmann has been largely excised from WP, but Glitter bomb (and several redirects) was created at the same time to ensure that he was not forgotten.

Someone glitterbombed Dan Savage yesterday. I wonder if Cirt will add that to Savage's BLP?

For someone who writes about such an issue where facts get distorted all the time, I can't believe someone like him would fuck up and call a cismale ftm.

Don't be silly. His BLP is on so many watchlists, he could sell tickets.

What usually happens to his bio is stupid shit like this.
Over and over and over again, several times a day.

Following up my own post, I knew it was only a matter of time:
QUOTE
Author and activist Dan Savage was glitterbombed while speaking at the University of Oregon on November 1, 2011 "for his notorious transphobic history."
Added 3 November by trans-activist Jokestress to Glitter bombing, but no one has tried to slip it into the Savage BLP yet.

Going by "what links here", currently none of the glitter targets' bios make mention of the event, thankfully.
