You elected a sexual assaulter for POTUS. You found reasons to hate a woman who had worked her whole life to have the experience to do this job well. I don’t know which part of this is so appalling…I can’t even list all the things that frighten me.
After 9/11, I didn’t feel personally in danger, but I felt like the world had shifted. And there was more hate in the world than I realized.
This feels like just as seismic a shift. But it feels like the hate is directed at me. And my LGBT+ friends. And my friends who have darker skin or are Muslim. And it comes from within.
I am being strong for my friends. I am organizing massive #s of people. But I am frightened. I don’t feel like my humanity is not recognized by too many and I feel like we will be raising a generation that is regressive on that front.
