you know what I’m fucking sick to death of politicians and pundits saying we as a nation are too divided and need to work together. that everyone is sad when their side loses, and tomorrow we have to pull together. that it is our responsibility to be more open-minded to those with whom we disagree.

it’s a nice thought, but when one side advocates for the violent oppression of the other, reaching across the aisle is meaningless. when one side fears the other because they’re different and one side fears the other because they don’t want to be killed, there is a bigger problem.

so here’s a different message: you don’t have to be kind to people who want you dead. you don’t have to pull together with those who hate you. you are not responsible for the government’s inability to function. when someone hates your entire being, the bedrock of what you are and what you stand for, when someone is so frightened of your inner light they want to snuff you out you do not have to be kind to them.

one of the great things about JoJo is that if you pick a random character from it, you might end up with classics such as a 100.000 year old dude who turned his hand into a squirrel once, a dog who controls a sand monster and likes to fart in peoples’ faces, some sentient plankton possessing the body of a dead girl, the president of the USA or even Jesus Christ himself.

I think Negan perfectly sums up the feeling many Americans have today when they think about who’s just been elected president… 

you know i’ve been really tolerant of third party voters, and my personal morals are that i try not to hate anyone for reason. gotta try and see the good in everyone, you know? and i’m always for the freedom to choose who you vote for. literally any other election i would’ve said, go for it. vote third party.

but i cannot fucking tolerate this. donald trump only needs 26 more votes to win the election because of you. if you had just set your own fucked up egos and morals aside for a moment and thought about someone besides yourselves, we would not be in this situation. we would not be looking a trump presidency dead in the face if you hadn’t said ‘i don’t like either candidate’ or ‘i don’t want to vote for the lesser of two evils’. 

if you voted third party this election, please unfollow me now. i don’t care if we’re mutuals or not. you have willingly given this country over to a racist, homophobic, sexist, islamophobic, horrible man. i hope you’re proud of your protest vote. from this trans man who will likely lose what little rights he has left, i hope you’re fucking happy.

Wow 2016 was fucking nuts.

We’ve had:
-A racist, sexist, douchebag become president

-A dead gorilla became a meme

-A movie that ends in multiple food items having a fucking orgy

-Exotic butters

-Angsty teen

-And an old children’s show become a meme, AND a fandom, which all started because one of the iconic character’s actor is ill, and people wanted to help

Not everything was bad, but it was just fucking crazy.
