My name's Ben. I'm a 22 year-old recent grad living in Seattle. I've been told my gayness is only matched by my enthusiasm.
I post my favorite news from all around the web.

It’s a term that doesn’t describe either an identifiable group of voters or a clearly defined ideology to describe policies. “Moderate” is simultaneously one of the most powerful and least meaningful descriptions in politics.
On Wednesday night, MSNBC wrote on Twitter, ”Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” and linked to the cereal company’s new ad. It set off a firestorm that by Thursday, had the chairman of the Republican National Committee calling for a boycott of MSNBC until it apologizes.
The tweet ignited an outpouring of criticism directed at the network, thus birthing the hashtag “#MyRightWingBiracialFamily” as conservatives took to social to media to prove just how far MSBC veered from the truth.
Don’t social conservatives have their own core commitments that, if applied consistently, would seem to carve out a sphere for polygamous families? Aren’t polygamous families in Utah engaged in the free exercise of religion? Aren’t many ordering their families as they believe God would want them to? Isn’t plural marriage an age-old institution with deep roots in the Bible? Confronted with social-science research that says polygamy is bad for children, don’t polygamists reply that parents know better than the state what’s good for their offspring, and insist they ought to have wide latitude to make decisions about child-rearing?
