New Email Shows Hilary Clinton Isn't That Much Of An LBGTQ ALLY

We all know who Hilary Clinton is. A Democrat who started out as First Lady and is not looking to be the first female president. We also believed that she was a staunch supporter of gay rights having just recently told a gay man, "I am proud of you" after learning about the adoption him and his partner just went though for their daughter. However, she was singing a very different tune 4 years ago.
In an email that was just recently uncovered Clinton ripped apart a policy change that Congress passed to change mother and father on passports to Parent 1 and Parent 2. Doesn't seem like such a big deal right? Especially because we live in a world where many same sex couples have children. But it's safe to say Hilary seemed pretty pissed in her email...
Yes, yes I get it, no one wants to deal with Fox News. And yes, she even said she could LIVE with non-traditional families.... Oh wait, hold on. Accepting and the idea of "living with" same sex parenting is two very different things and her tone in this email makes it very clear that she did not accept non traditional families AT ALL.
Now this was an email for four years ago and I am always one to give someone the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she's changed! Maybe she has become a better, more accepting democrat (however it has been quoted from Bill Clinton himself that LBGTQ rights was a hard pill for Hilary to swallow). I can't help but wonder if her new found acceptance of the LBGTQ community and non traditional families as a whole doesn't stem from somewhere a little less accepting... Like her running for president of the United States on the democratic ballot. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see what her PR team pulls together for this one.

oi. I dunno. this sounds like she’s upset, but also that she’s upset with how the media takes it. I wonder if she was just trying to appease Fox News..
@nicolejb I was thinking that but her phrasing "live with" makes it seem like she isn't a supporter and more of just someone how will deal with it

Cosplaying while black: are we making our communities unsafe for nonwhite members?
It's all fun and games. Until it's not. I've mentioned Marvel's race problem before, but the truth is the problem is everywhere. There are very few positive representations of people of color in the media today. Some of this is because those in charge of casting, writing, and producing the media we love are almost all white. There are about three nonwhite people in America for every nonwhite character we see on screen, and of those characters, how many of them get screentime or character arcs that don't pidgeonhole them in a stereotype? If you don't think there's a problem, you might want to look again. These problems are psrt of fandom too. Since the media we're celebrating is flawed, it's extremely difficult for us to avoid internlizing the harmful messages that we consume. It's not somehing that can be done passively- it takes real work. Chaka Cumberbatch has been a cosplayer for years, and has been the target of harassment because she cosplays as characters that aren't black like- she is. It's not like she has a lot of options- how many black female characters can you name off the top of your head? Storm, Princess Tiana- she's built some amazing costumes for these characters. But why should Hollywood's diversity problem be hers? The underlying message feels very much like: "This isn't for you, you're not welcome here". Why would anyone want to send that kind of message to a fellow fan? In an interview with HaveYouNerd, she mentioned that even people who didn't overtly exclude her could sometimes make her feel like she didn't belong: "Sometimes, you’ll run into some tokenism, or people will start to get a little too comfortable with you – and it’s always painfully awkward because then it’s like you’re forced to walk this tightrope between sticking up for yourself and forcing the group to have an uncomfortable conversation about race, stereotypes, and why the things they’re saying are problematic. I’ve had times when I was hanging out with a group that was predominately male, that I was accused of “playing the race card,” “overreacting” or “taking things too seriously...” Fandom, we need to do better than this. We need to make our fellow fans of color feel like they're in a safe environment, where they can voice their discomfort and not have their feelings dismissed. Where they can come out and have fun and not worry about being tokenized or harassed. We get so enthusiastic over every new trailer release- why can't we show cosplayers of color the same enthusiasm? We freak out every time nerds are misrepresented in the media, but we can't be bothered to stand up for our fellows when they feel attacked or hurt? And before you say that it's "just about hurt feelings" (like feelings don't matter!?), consider this... On September 10th, 2014, Darren Hunt was shot and killed by the police. While the initial report suggested he had been "lunging towards officers", witnesses and the autopsy confirmed that he had in fact been going in the opposite direction. He was shot in the back. Furthermore,, he was still in costume from a character cosplay. He had a toy sword with him. The police shot an unarmed black man, and they blamed their mistake on his cosplay. Part of making our communities safer needs to include effort to make the WORLD we live in a safer place. It should never be acceptable for the police to recklessly commit homicide like this, but we've seen this story repeating over and over again. Darren Hunt was a fellow fan, but the silence from fan communities was deafening. We're fans. We love heroes in capes that swoop in to save the day when all hope is lost. It's an escape. The thing about escaping into fantasies (like we do with films and comics and tv shows), is that all the problems of the real world follow us there. As nerds and as fans, we have no excuse when we ignore the very real problems our fellows face because of their race (or their gender, their sexuality, or the size of their bodies). Silently ignoring the problem, or taking a "neutral" stance does nothing to help the people endangered by racism. All it does is give more power to those whose actions are deliberately harmful. We as fans need to do so much more to make our communities safer. We need to educate ourselves. We need to demand more diverse guests and panels at our conventions, vocalize your support for fans of color (not talking over them, but listening to their needs and adding your voice to theirs), support writers that are diversifying their work, and advocating for change when the systems that are supposed to be protecting us are applying uneven, brutal force against people of color. We need to listen. If you're still scratching your head, just ask yourself: what would my favorite hero do?

But which are the best ring candles? We’ve reviewed 5 of the best ring candles, that not only provide a variety of different rings and jewelry to choose from. But that also offers delightful scents and fragrances. One of the reasons ring candles are popular is that often you don’t know which specific ring or piece of jewelry you’ll get, so it’s a nice surprise to discover which you have found. This variety appeals to many, however, sometimes the variety might be too much for some and you might find a ring or piece of jewelry you don’t like. There are some ring candle manufacturers that may provide a random ring from a variety, but all these rings will be a similar style and not vary in appearance too much. So bear this in mind when you’re making your ring choices. Often people will forget to make sure that their jewelry candle actually has a ring that fits their finger. Most will have a good range of sizes for most people’s fingers, however, some have more choice of ring size than others. So make sure you buy a ring of the candle a ring the right size that actually can fit your finger! When you’re considering the scent of your candle, bear in mind not only the name on the label but also accompanying fragrances as these can have a big impact. You also want to bear in mind the scent throw of the candle (e.g. how well the candle ‘throw’s off iits scent/how strong the scent is when burning), as people have different preferences for how strong they want their candles to smell.

Why Coming Out of the Closet as an American Atheist Is Worth It
Reasons Why Coming Out As An Atheist Is Worth It I always like to start an article with a statement of the obvious, to help the reader and writer begin on common ground. For this article, the statement is: We live in a very religious nation. It wasn’t hard to come up with that, because in the United States churches outnumber schools and libraries by several orders of magnitude. Yet Atheism is growing, which means there’s not only a decent chance that you, my lovely reader, are a non-believer yourself, but there’s also a good chance you’re relatively new to your non-belief. You may even still attend church, while not buying into a word of the preaching. If you are a believer, there are decent odds that you are questioning and wondering what life is like on the other side. (The “other side” being Atheism in this life, no heaven or hell in the next.) Let me help fill you in. As an “out” Atheist, I’m perhaps a little biased, but I think being out is pretty damn grand. But even I can admit that it is good and bad to live out of the closet as a non-believer. Since I’m a cynic, we’ll begin with the bad. For two and a half years, I worked for an organization called the Secular Student Alliance. Have you heard of the national organization Campus Crusade for Christ? These days, they’re calling themselves just “Cru.” They organize clubs on college campuses. The Secular Student Alliance (SSA) organizes similar clubs for Atheists who aren't interested in a crusade so much as they’re interested in eating pizza with other Atheists. I used to work for SSA as their high school organizer. All in all, it was a pretty sweet gig. As soon as I started that job, I immediately noticed a big difference between religious students and non-religious students: most of the non-religious students hadn’t told their parents about their disbelief.
