Buzzfeed Is A Joke

Once again, the left attacks successful Christians


So last week the fake news site Buzzfeed (along with others such as the not so wonderful Cosmopolitan) released an article about Chip and Joanna Gaines who have the show "Fixer Upper" on HGTV. Now the piece is just another cowardly attack on Christians because Chip and Joanna go to a church where, get this, the pastor reads the Bible! What a bigot am I right? The article has since been updated, but the original intent is still well-known.

Bullying Christians has long been a favorite past time for those on the left. It happens all too often and if you say anything they just respond with "It's not a thing, it never happens." Oh but it does happen, all the time. It comes as a shock to them that apparently millions of Americans believe in traditional Christian values. All those bigoted homophobic people (satire). Now Christians believe that homosexuality is a sin and many on the left believe it is not, both different beliefs. However someone having a different belief does not fly with the left. See, the left claims to have the moral high ground (though most of the time they are relatively immoral) and thus bully those with different beliefs.

This ridiculous tactic is used all the time by the media and Hollywood, and it is not very effective. You want to know why Trump won? Insulting his supporters or those who reluctantly voted for him is a huge reason. Articles like the one in Buzzfeed or the one from Cosmo could easily be described as "Reason #83 as to why Trump won". The left just does not get it though, they go on the extreme thinking it will be effective and it has backfired on them instead.

I am not surprised that an article like this came from Buzzfeed. The "journalism" that they have is really just nonsense. They are on the same level of ignorance as other sites like Huffington Post, NowThis,, ThinkProgress, Salon, Occupy Democrats, Vox, and The Young Turks. There are plenty more, trust me. These sites have a fairly large influence on millennials, just scroll through most of the articles here on Odyssey and it becomes obvious where these "writers" get their news.

The piece on Chip and Joanna Gaines is absurd. Just like how it is absurd for those bakers to lose their business. The definition of a bigot simply put is one who is intolerant towards those holding a different opinion or belief. Chip and Joanna, those bakers, or any other person who believes in traditional Christian values are not bigots. Can you guess who are the true bigots?

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
