My Grandfather Gave My Girlfriend $2 - Here’s Why That’s Important — My grandfather's name was Sam. He was my father's father and spent his adult life first as a traveling salesman and then running a grocery store in Omaha, Nebraska, where my grandfather and his family were among the small crop of Jews in town.

I Got Doxxed So You Don’t Have To — Recently, I got doxxed. That means some troll found my personal information and posted it online, presumably so his fellow trolls could harass me offline like they already do on. Now, if you're really, really lucky, maybe you'll never have to know more about doxxing than that.

A pesar de la decisión de la Suprema Corte de Justicia, la lucha por la igualdad no ha terminado — Nota del editor: Sally Kohn es activista, columnista y comentarista de televisión. Síguela en Twitter: @sallykohn. Las opiniones expresadas en este comentario son únicamente las de la autora. (CNN) - En una decisión histórica, la Corte Suprema de Estados Unidos de América efectivamente ha promulgado la igualdad de matrimonio en todo el país.

The GOP Gay Marriage Freakout — Marriage equality has won at the Supreme Court, but the fight over gay marriage is far from over. Now we enter the Republican temper tantrum phase. Even prior to the Supreme Court's ruling, several prominent Republicans had pledged to disobey any high court ruling in favor of marriage equality-and had called on their fellow Republican leaders to do the same.

I'm Still Not Getting Married, Even Though It's Finally Legal — After the Supreme Court ruled today in favor of marriage equality, I knew my mom would call. Even before same-sex marriage was legal in any states, when it was just a cultural phenomenon among welcoming spiritual traditions and loved ones, my mom has been nudging. Or even nagging.

Fight for equality isn't over — The court held that the 14th Amendment requires states to license marriages between two people of the same sex and to recognize such marriages when lawfully performed in other states. "The history of marriage is one of both continuity and change," Kennedy wrote.

Taking down Confederate flag is not enough — That flag should have been taken down 150 years ago at the end of the Civil War. And political leaders should have stood firmly against the Confederate flag -- and all it stands for -- before the Charleston shooting.

America's Race Problem — The actions of the 21-year-old man who is alleged to have killed nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, were aided and abetted by actions and attitudes of our racially biased society. The shooter, Dylann Roof, is not an anachronism, anathema to

Trump's outrageous Mexico remarks — Perhaps the lowest point, in a speech filled with low points, was when Trump started bashing Mexico and Mexicans -- and, in so doing, also bashed the fundamental values on which our own nation is founded. "When Mexico sends its people," Trump said during his presidential announcement, "they're not sending the best.

A speech about my parents, a dog, a car and the LGBT community — Recently, my parents were given an award by the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center in our hometown of Allentown, PA, in recognition of their tireless volunteering and advocacy in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. I couldn't be more proud of them. I had the privilege of delivering the keynote address at the ceremony.
