Stopping all the hate and actually defending people for who they are is what SHOULD be happening here.
Can we all just learn to treat eachother with respect and act like mature adults here? This is why Tumblr is disliked so strongly now. Because everyone keeps throwing negative things at one another and expecting it to get better.
Federal officials said that three members of a MILITIA group in Kansas were planning to bomb an apartment complex killing dozens of Somali immigrants the day after the presidential election. Curtis Allen, Gavin Wright, Patrick Stein called their anti-Muslim group the “Crusaders” and wanted to detonate four vehicles filled with explosives outside the complex in Garden City to “wake people up”.
And the white media called them MILITIA instead of TERRORISTS? Now WE ARE WOKE, thanks.
You know something is wrong with society when a 12 year old
girl is dying inside because she thinks something is wrong with her because
instead of liking boys like all her other friends she likes girls.
Society makes you think that being gay is the biggest
mistake you could have ever chosen to live your life with. That being gay makes you less human, with different rights and values than other people. That
being gay will make your life way more complicated because of the hate people can have towards you.
We teach our next
generation that is better to keep it to yourself rather than to be your true
self and enjoy your life, instead of teaching them to accept homosexual people
because they are not in any way different than straight people.
I spent the last 3 years of my life thinking something was
really wrong with me for liking girls instead of boys, and that I would have to
live my whole life pretending to be someone I’m not. Until one day 3 years
after, I kissed a girl. I knew I liked her before kissing her, I also knew I
couldn’t do much because kissing a girl would mean my life would be completely
different from that point foward because
girls aren’t supposed to kiss girls and that kissing her would be something
extremely wrong. I thought that until I kissed her. From that point foward I
knew society was making millions of teenage lives live in fear and hating
themselves. Kissing another person whether they are gay, bisexual, transexual,
who cares what they are, they are still HUMANS, has nothing wrong. You are just
doing the simple action of KISSING someone, LOVING someone, TAKING CARE of
someone, there was nothing wrong with what I was doing. I was just being who I
really wanted to be for a really long time and I wasn’t able because I thought
it was a big deal, because I thought I was wrong, because I thought my life
would be over. But I realized I wasn’t, I realized it was the most normal thing
anyone could possibly do, LOVE SOMEONE ELSE.
Instead of teaching being gay is something gross, and
discusting, because the only thing you are doing is creating fear to those who
haven´t come out yet and hating themselves for loving someone they are not
supposed to love, teach is okay to love people, to kiss them, to take care of
them, regardless of their sexual orientation, because after all is just that.
THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION.
Okay this is it im sick of this.
I am sick of it. I dont care if I lose every follower I have.

If you’re trans and hate cishets, you are making transgender people look bad.
If you’re black and hate white people, you are making black people look bad.
If you’re a woman and hate men, you are making women look bad.

I was so glad to see Chicago come together as one, to protest against police brutality and the on going mistreatment of African-American people in the USA. It’s time that we set our differences aside and make an actual change in our communities, educate young people, and keep the negativity and hate out of our homes and cities. Together we can make a difference.
This is obviously very unlikely, as it’s unheard of for Electors to not vote as the election votes advise them to, but it’s absolutely a real and possible thing that exists in our laws & regulations, and we are living in unheard of times, so truly anything IS possible. We just learned that painful lesson TWO DAYS AGO.
Regardless of how unlikely this is, every person that voted for Hillary should sign this petition. So should every person that now realizes they SHOULD have voted for Hillary, so should every person that stayed home because “my vote doesn’t matter” (Michigan is literally still too close to call with Trump ahead by only 12,000 votes - and over 90 MILLION of you didn’t bother to vote - really think about that).
You know who else should sign? Every person - regardless of who they voted for - that woke up horrified by the wave of hate crimes against women, minorities, and LGBTQ folks that are ALREADY taking place in this country. So should every person that sees the stripping of voter protection laws as a way of KEEPING THE PEOPLE FROM VOTING. WHY DON’T THEY WANT YOU TO VOTE??? WHY??? Because they know the majority of the people are good people and NOT hateful bigots.
For anyone that wants to call those decrying the results out as “sore losers,” I have two things to say:
#1. Had Trump won the popular vote and lost the electoral college, I suspect we would have seen a similar outcry - this country is OBVIOUSLY divided. And I wouldn’t have begrudged anyone their protest. Peaceful protest is the right of the people. It’s how THINGS CHANGE.
#2. There’s a core difference here. While this country will likely always disagree on many things, the simple fact is that unlike your candidate, my candidate did not run on a platform of TAKING AWAY RIGHTS. We did not (and do not) want to harm you, deport you, reprogram you, kill you, or limit you access to healthcare or marriage, or the freedom to walk around on the street safely. There are A LOT of problems in this country no matter who our president is and we need a lot of change, but if we won there was NEVER going to be a surge in HATE CRIMES against you. White people and conservatives weren’t going to be told to “go home,” or assaulted in the street, or threatened, or harassed, or put out of their homes, or run out of their country. And that is all the difference in the world. And probably a lot of you DON’T hate us, but the person you voted for? He ran on a campaign of hate - of stripping of us rights that all humans are entitled to - and by aligning yourself with that - for whatever reason - you have given power to the people that DO believe that - and the result is already on our doorstep: hate crimes and terror and fear. So if you’re having second thoughts about the hate you’re ALREADY seeing in the street - YOU should consider signing the petition too.
To be taken remotely seriously, this petition needs a MASSIVE TURNOUT. A definitive response from the majority of the American people. 60 million votes is not enough…is 100 million enough? We need a GROUNDSWELL response to show DEFINITIVELY how this country really feels - and that we do NOT accept a hateful bigot that finds sexual assault acceptable as our leader, and that we will NOT accept the hate, racism, and sexism, that this election has overnight empowered to the degree that the KKK feels bold enough to walk in the street in this country with no shame.
If 100 million feels impossible, know that when I first saw this petition 400,000 people had already signed. A few hours later and it is nearly a million.
Sign. Make your voices heard AGAIN and MORE LOUDLY.
