Caleb is a trans, POC artist who makes gorgeous illustrations. One of his illustrations depicts interfaith, gay relationships and, despite the heat he took at first, he's not standing down from spreading his message of love and inclusivity.


The illustration that received backlash pictures a gay couple and lesbian couple.

Both couples feature one Jew and one Muslim person.

Caleb's images provoked outrage from religious extremists.

One person stated,

"As a Jew I allow myself to speak on behalf of my Jewish/Muslim brothers represented here. May the eternal face burning clouds on your dwellings that your legs are broken, may your crops disappear, may Gd [sic] cover your cities under the oceans"

Others called the pairings "impossible", sinful, and numerous people wished illness and death upon him.

But despite the hatred, Caleb is "done being scared of homophobes".



Caleb's commitment to spreading love, not hate, as well as the images themselves are inspiring people everywhere.










Bravo for your beautiful message of love and inclusivity, Caleb!

There's nothing quite like staring at a beautiful sunset, especially when it's over the water. There's something so serene about it and I can't help but feel my spirits lift. Who doesn't love that? I was recently walking with a friend in Brooklyn and the view over the bridge was spectacular. I went home that night with a big smile on my face.

"What is a thing that is universally loved by all people?"

The longer one lives, the more they know this to be true: human life is fragile. Mortality is such a scary, crazy reality that we must prepare for on a day-to-day basis, as we could easily be here one day and gone the next.

But not all ways to go out are created equal. There are the things you can't control--like a stroke, or a health condition, or even an accident. But then there are the things you could have avoided doing but chose to do anyway, putting you and others around you in danger in the process.

Listen ... Sam Rockwell...

He's never going to read this article, but on the off-chance he does, I am totally open to him emailing me or sliding into the DMs.

I have nothing of any real importance to say, just that I've been weirdly obsessed since his indie movie days and I like the way he ... um ... makes words? And says them good? On a stage/set?

Nickelodeon was and is one of the most popular kids' channels. Starting in 1977, this channel has hosted popular cartoon shows like Spongebob Squarepants and Avatar: The Last Airbender.

We can't forget about iCarly, which just got a reboot bringing back out favorite characters but years later and updated to meet the changing times.

Since it's inception, Nickelodeon has expanded to have five different sister channels, movies, cruise ships, theme parks and hotels. But for most people who look back at the cartoons aren't thinking about those things.

They're thinking of the high quality, hilarious, and nostalgic shows they enjoyed as a kid. So, we wanted to know which of these shows are the best of the best.
