If Bruce had told me about his gender issue when we first began getting romantically involved, I would not have married him. Pure and simple. But looking back, I'm so grateful to God, the universe, and Bruce that I didn't know, and that Bruce played the role in my life that he did.

As you get older, the unknown can become scary as you question more and more things in the world, slowly losing that childlike innocence we all once had. Sometimes, we all love to take that escape from the daily rigmarole of life into some sort of fantasy.
Since compromise is the underpinning of our country's governance system, it should come as no surprise that our government doesn't work when compromise doesn't exist.
The journey to body acceptance is a vigorous fight, and one that involves both genders. It requires both sexes to rise above the grossly defined standards for beauty and attractiveness. We can work together to create a world built in understanding of human depth and uniqueness and not on shallow evaluation of appearance.

When we launched our What's Working editorial initiative, we knew we wanted to tell solutions-oriented stories using all the tools at our disposal on a global scale. So in addition to our original reporting and the robust conversations we're starting on the blog, we've now launched the What's Working Honor Roll, a daily morning roundup of the best solutions journalism around the world.
The fact that the people voters tasked with making the tough decisions are so afraid of losing their jobs that they would put the desires of a fringe "no new taxes" group ahead of the needs of their constituents suggests that the real problem here is not road or education funding but a complete and total failure of leadership.
When we do our "gratitude inventory" (aka, a way to get them to reflect and pray), they rattle off things as a matter of routine that many people would only dream of.
Repealing the estate tax isn't just a boon for the 5,500 wealthiest Americans; it is a bust to federal taxpayers, who would be on the hook for its quarter-of-a-trillion-dollars cost. And it gets worse: Combined with other tax bills approved by House Republicans so far this year, our debt would grow by $584 billion to finance tax cuts for the wealthy.
Detroit was once famous for creating the largest, most spectacular versions of whatever its residents set their minds to. Few care to admit, however, that the city that was the arsenal of the twentieth century may also provide the blueprint for a more precarious era.
To find the best places to get in shape we collected data on over 360 of the largest metropolitan areas in the country. Specifically, we looked at three separate categories of data that affect fitness.
Many migrating birds collide with man-made structures such as communication towers, power lines, and wind turbines; they face loss of habitat needed for refueling and protection from predators during stops along their migratory journey.
