Actor William Shatner Under Fire From Liberals For Refusing to Condemn President Trump and Not Supporting Social Activism

Actor William Shatner Under Fire From Liberals For Refusing to Condemn President Trump and Not Supporting Social Activism

I participated in a tweet or two in the conversations that actor William Shatner was receiving, that the news articles below are referring to.

A liberal person was saying in one tweet that only conservatives dictate who other people can date, which is false. These days, we have liberals and “trans activists” telling people who they can date.

For example, in the last few months, a few trans-women have posted videos online telling CIS, hetero men that they should date trans-women (here is one example).

Here is a link to the tweet by Shatner where I was responding to a person or two. Here is one of my Tweets, my other Tweet.

Here are the news stories:

After [singer] Chester Bennington’s Death, Suicide Experts Fear A Contagion Effect

Excerpts:

Depression can affect anybody.

That’s the lesson suicide prevention experts hope the public will grasp in the wake of two high-profile celebrity suicides: first Chris Cornell, and now Chester Bennington. “Your mental health is health,” says Jill Harkavy-Friedman, the vice-president of research at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. “If you have a nice car and a lot of money, that doesn’t protect you from mental health conditions.”

Bennington, the longtime frontman of nu-metal megaband Linkin Park, was found dead on Thursday at his home in Los Angeles County. The death is reported to have been a suicide. The late singer’s bandmate, Mike Shinoda, confirmed the upsetting news on Twitter.

….The most pervasive—and often damaging—misconception is that wealthy or successful people don’t (or shouldn’t) struggle with depression and anxiety. Like cancer, depression is a disease that can affect anyone, regardless of status or wealth.

Story of Anchor Byron Pitts – From Poverty and Learning Disabilities to a Top Journalist

Overcoming Hardship With Hope (interview with Byron Pitts)

Excerpts:

Byron Pitts grew up in Baltimore, Maryland. His childhood was filled with overwhelming obstacles. He had a debilitating stutter, a home life that was filled with discord due to his father’s infidelity, and an embarrassing secret: he couldn’t read.

Byron was twelve years old when his parents separated.

…When punishment did not make a difference, she decided to get Byron tested. He can still recall the words of the therapist, “I’m sorry, Mr. and Mrs. Pitts, Byron is functionally illiterate.” His parents did not realize he could not read.

…By the time Byron reached high school he was still struggling with reading. His freshman year he was ranked 310 out of 330 students.

With the coaching of Father Bartholomew, Byron and he mapped out an aggressive study schedule that would improve his grades so he could get into college. It worked…

To Make Better Decisions, Ask Yourself ‘What,’ Not ‘Why’ by Tasha Eurich

To Make Better Decisions, Ask Yourself ‘What,’ Not ‘Why’ by Tasha Eurich

To Make Better Decisions, Ask Yourself ‘What,’ Not ‘Why’ by Tasha Eurich

Excerpts:

Why questions draw us to our limitations; what questions help us see our potential. Why questions stir up negative emotions; what questions keep us curious. Why questions trap us in our past; what questions help us create a better future.

….Indeed, making the transition from why to what can be the difference between victimhood and growth.

….Asking what instead of why forces us to name our emotions, a process that a strong body of research has shown to be effective. The simple act of translating our emotions into language—versus simply experiencing them—can stop our brains from activating our amygdala, the fight-or-flight command center, and this in turn helps us stay in control. If this sounds too simple to be true, try naming your feelings for a week and see what you notice.
