We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.

That means that…

”It took me 10 years to be ready for this. I’ve got a pretty good foundation of friends and family that will always keep me grounded no matter what. But I don’t think I would have been ready for it 10 years ago. So I’m really happy with the way it worked out. You need to learn how to do this. You need to learn how to keep your cool, learn how to be a leader on set, learn how to act. F—-, I still know I’ve got a ton to learn. It’s all a learning experience. I’m going to school every day.” [x]

Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

A couple of months ago, I overheard a very offensive conversation by a person’s absurd (beyond stereotypical) notion of bisexuals and the relationships they have. The gist of their notion was that ‘all bisexuals are unfaithful in their relationships because of their sexual preferences’. I was in earshot of this conversation and my jaw dropped. At the time, I wanted to speak my mind, but could not do so without offending the former party. So I was quiet, but angry.

In the last few months, I’ve been trying to find the right words to describe how I felt, and what I could do to challenge that thought. Then I found this article, and I couldn’t have said it any better.

I’m fortunate enough that those who I have opened up to don’t challenge me or ask me weird questions. But if in the future, if I am confronted, at least I know what to say.

Anyway, I want to share this article for those who also struggle with explaining. But, in my opinion, you don’t have to outright say ‘I’m proud to be bisexual because X-Y-Z’. Instead, think that this is going to help people understand when you say ‘this is who I am’.

Thanks to the Ladlad Partylist for sharing this, and more so to Nathaniel Frank for writing this article.
