News recently broke that the Trump administration had contacted its embassies around the world and banned them from flying rainbow flags in honor of PRIDE month, prompting swift backlash from LGBTQ individuals and their allies online.


Of all the people to defy the White House's decision, however, YouTuber Elijah Daniel may have made the most dramatic gesture.

In response to the President's mandate, Elijah Daniel straight up bought the town of Hell, Michigan and renamed it Gay Hell, Michigan.

Gay Hell, Michigan (formerly Hell, Michigan) is a real town in Michigan occupied by 70 people and taking up about 5 acres of land.

It was listed for purchase for $900,000, which apparently seemed like a great price to Daniel.

Don't believe it? Elijah took pictures as evidence of his new purchase.

This isn't the first time Elijah has found himself in charge of Hell.

He previously became mayor of the town for a brief period of time.


Elijah can't wait to spread the word about Gay Hell.

His first order of business?

Ban all flags EXCEPT for rainbow PRIDE flags.


People were amazed at the lengths Elijah went to to make a point.



A lot of Twitter users were packing their bags and getting ready to move to Gay Hell.



Of course, the only person whose opinion of Gay Hell really mattered gave the town his approval!


The implications of having Gay Hell right here on Earth could be far-reaching and profound...


If this doesn't send a message to the White House, nothing will.

Someday, we'll all look back on Gay Hell, Michigan and question whether it really happened.

But it did.

It really really did.

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. 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.
