(Colin Mochrie/Facebook)

Whose Line Is It Anyway? improv actor Colin Mochrie is the kind of parent who would go to the ends of the earth to fight for his trans daughter, including taking on the trolls who direspected her on social media.

The haters would soon discover their pathetic remarks were no match for the blow delivered by the comedic actor.


When Kinley Mochrie came out to her parents in April 2016, she didn't doubt for a second they would be nothing but loving and supportive.

In January 2017, as all of Mochrie's followers on Facebook and family knew of his daughter's transition, the Canadian actor decided to share a message on Twitter about acceptance.

He posted:

The tweet got more likes and comments than the actor expected. Since then, Mochrie openly shared news of his family to a much broader audience.


On Monday, September 3, in a Facebook post accompanied by a beautiful family portrait, the proud father wrote:

"Happy birthday to my lovely daughter!"
"28 years old and everything we've ever hoped for in a child."


While the post got plenty of love, the trolls were not kind and posted judgemental comments blasting Kinley on her birthday.

But Colin Mochrie had the perfect response to the rude comments on his celebratory Facebook post.

The actor took to both Facebook and Twitter and posted:

"Thanks to the fans of this page for being supportive and human."
"To the trolls, my thoughts and prayers to your body for losing it's mind and soul so tragically."



As far as fans are concerned, this dad is winning.








Colin's love for his daughter inspired others to come forward with their own stories of struggle and acceptance.











Colin told CBC's Wendy Mesley that he consulted with Kinley before making that first Twitter post back in January 2017.

"I think we were both idiotic in a way."
"I didn't really think of the full ramifications. I just thought 'I'm just putting this positive thing out there.'"

And while the comedian was fully supportive of his daughter's gender transition, he couldn't help but be concerned about her safety when statistics show violence against transgender people, especially women, is so prevalent.

Mochrie said his first thought for his daughter was:

"God, let her be safe."

Mochrie was away from home when Kinley came out to her mother. The actor said he wondered:

"You go through this thing, 'Oh, well now my child has changed genders, does that mean that previous child is now gone'?''
"But then, once Kinley came through the door, I went 'Oh yeah, its my kid', its the exact same kid, but as I say 'with a different coat on'."

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
