Meet the faces of the “I’m Sorry” campaign, a group of Christians who go to Chicago’s pride celebrations every year to apologize for their past hateful actions against LGBT people. The group started in 2010 and has since moved to other cities across the world. This is what love looks like. (via the Advocate)

Great moments in tv history
The best part is how the hand giving the cigarette doesn’t belong to anyone in the room—no one is wearing that shirt.
Someone at my school made these in response to my principal announcing a dress code that, as usual, only applied to girls, and I’m kind of proud
[Not responding] is how you are supposed to respond to insults, according to Don Miguel Ruiz, author of the classic book The Four Agreements.
The second agreement is simply this: Don’t take anything personally.
Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally … Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.
Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give are according to the agreements they have in their own minds … Taking things personally makes you easy prey for these predators, the black magicians. They can hook you easily with one little opinion and feed you whatever poison they want, and because you take it personally, you eat it up …
But if you do not take it personally, you are immune in the middle of hell. Immunity in the middle of hell is the gift of this agreement.

They are not here to be pretty.
I am trying to learn from them.
