Actress Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries, The Devil Wears Prada, Ocean's 8) was recognized at the 22nd annual Human Rights Campaign for being a voice of equality for the LGBTQ community.

Giving her speech, Hathaway held back tears while denouncing white, straight and cisgender privilege. In part she said:

That myth is that gayness orbits around straightness, transgender orbits around cisgender, and that all races orbit around whiteness.
I appreciate this community because together we are not going to just question this myth, we are going to destroy it.
Let's tear this world apart and build a better one.



HRC President Chad Griffin said of Hathaway:

From speaking out against discriminatory legislation targeting the LGBTQ community to her leadership on workplace equality for women, Anne is making a real difference in the lives of countless people around the globe.

Twitter couldn't agree more.









In 2008, Anne told a crowd of HRC members and supporters:

I don't consider myself just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family. And so, I'm doing what we should all do with our families — I'm loving you, I support you, I completely accept you as you are, as I hope you do me, and if anyone ever tries to hurt you, I'm going to give them hell.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
