SORT BY Relevancy
June is LGBTQ Pride Month. Despite the popular images of wealthy LGB celebrities, many queer and trans* people are low-income. Employment discrimination, lack of health insurance, homelessness, and other factors make LGBT people particularly vulnerable to the impact of economic inequality. Gay and lesbian families (especially the latter) are significantly more likely to be living below the poverty line than heterosexual married families, and children in gay and lesbian households are twice as likely to live in poverty as compared to children in homes with heterosexual parents. And given the legacy of racism in the U.S., the statistics are even worse for LGBT people of color. Other concerns include: trans justice and violence against LGBTQ youth.

Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown, the smart, adorable, and clever hosts of the very popular YouTube series AsapSCIENCEposted a video yesterday in which they came out as both gay and a couple of seven and a half years.
The reason for the video and the announcement was for the guys to address the numerous antigay comments they’ve received on their videos.
“Although, in general, our YouTube experience has been extremely phenomenal and supportive, we’ve also experienced a lot of negativity and discussions around our sexuality. And therefore we felt the need to sort of come again,” Brown says in the video, noting that both he and Moffit have been out, proud gay men since “late high school.”
“Part of our mission with AsapSCIENCE has been to make it as inclusive and accessible as possible, and that’s not only through relatable topics or humor, but also by breaking down gender stereotypes and using drawings that represent … different stick-figure family orientations,” Moffit adds. “Because that’s the way the world is and we think that the enjoyment of the scientific exploration process should be available to everyone.”
Watch their video announcement below.

No, I'm no more racist than the next person. The fact is that the War between the states A had very little to do with slavery. In fact, it had nothing to with slavery until 1863 when Lincoln used it as a political agenda to save his sorry, dictator wannabe butt.
The War Between the States was about state rights. The north was imposing tariffs out the wazoo on the south. Illegal tariffs, I might add.
Sure, the south wasn't perfect; who is? All I'm saying is that they were the ones ultimately in the right in that 19th century fiasco and they took the flack for it because the winners write the history books. No the true history is written by warriors.
If you want to argue with me, please, argue intelligently. I loath hippies.
Just remember two things: 1) THE NORTHERN STATES HAD MANY SLAVES; 2)The emancipation proclamation claimed (because it had no legal authority) to free only the slaves in the "rebelling states." Northerners were free to keep their slaves until the 13th Amendment.
I SALUTE THE CONFEDERATE FLAG WITH AFFECTION, REVERENCE AND
UNDYING DEVOTION TO THE CAUSE FOR WHICH IT STANDS.
