Remove Alexander Ryking as editor of the Politics tag.


Ryking has long been considered a problem in the tumblr community for his increasingly misogynistic views. Lately, he has taken to defending rapists, calling women who disagree with him "feminazis," using gendered slurs against women, and repeatedly heaping praise upon men who have threatened to beat and rape women. He is not a positive representation of the tumblr community and should not be in a leadership/editorial position.
