Conservative—who accuse others fighting bigotry and oppression of being "snowflakes"—found something new to be offended about.

So what is it this time?


After Billy Porter dropped by Sesame Street in his iconic Christian Siriano tuxedo gown from last year's Academy Awards...



...Sesame Street tweeted about it, saying:

"an iconic day with an iconic person."

The post contained pictures of Porter posing with Elmo, one of the show's Penguins, as well as sitting in front of the familiar 123 Sesame Street brownstone in his full gown.

That gown was iconic 365 days ago and now it's back with a vengeance.

Unfortunately, several Twitter conservatives were unable to handle the moment, making hateful and/or rude comments about Sesame Street and Porter.





Porter likely saw this upset coming, as he'd already shut down Donald Trump Jr.'s use of his Grammy's outfit (which was also an iconic moment) on the same day he was tagged in Sesame Street's tweet.


Those who were not in the least intimidated by Porter's lewks complimented his gumption and Sesame Street's inclusivity.





Porter says he, himself, was "tickled" to be in the company of such a legend as THE Elmo.

Don't let the haters get you down, Billy.

Porter's appearance currently has no airdate set, but once it does, we are sure we will be fans.

Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

"What are your thoughts on medically assisted death?"

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
