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 โ€” 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.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories whenโ€”compared with nonconspiracy explanationsโ€”they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
