Chris is amazing. You can also find his appearances on Ellen and the Colbert Report on video. He is also the bassist for a group called Tripping Icarus. Great music. It’s inspiring to see someone so passionate about equal rights!

It’s true, it’s not that easy being a straight ally. The people you have to deal with, that are the worst, have the most entitled attitude because they’re not used to being challenged. You all get the brunt of some exceptional hypocrisy.
But it’s true, we just grow stronger. I get a perverse kick out of seeing how offended our dissenters get at being outsmarted.
They truly don’t understand that the way they use their religious opinions, or debate skills, are poor substitutes for lack of experience and empirical knowledge of the people who are the subject at hand.
This is how a non Jewish, anti Semite, when confronted with actual Jewish people, gets his butt handed to him in an open forum with the world watching.
However, our dissenters will say it was threat and coercion that changed minds.
When in truth, the credible witnesses were finally able to be heard from and were the most persuasive after all.
