What Do I Do?
The whole world knows it now.
Donald Trump is President of the United States.
I stayed up late watching this, ironing my scrubs for work. And you know what? I have never been more scared in my life. My heart was racing. Tears were blurring my vision. My fucking heart is hurting right now.
I’m a minority.
I am a woman.
Any form of sexual assault, wherever it be physical, verbal, what have you, is a fucking crime. And I’m no stranger to its abuse.
The fact that this pathetic excuse of a human being is now our country’s leader terrifies me right down to the very core. A man who not only insulted women, but insulted my race, my gender and made fun of both men and women who have fallen victim to sexual abuse. It’s insane. I fear for my life. No joke.
What’s gonna happen now? Who in the hell do I turn to when the majority of the people that I work with are Trump supporters? What do I do when I’m within arms’ reach of people who have disrespected me? Or are racist?
I’m scared. I’m seriously, honest to god, scared right now.
