Fuck off. Get your sorry ass off my blog and contemplate the fact that you have fucked over your entire country.
You have voted for a complete and utter cunt whose decisions will implicate the entire western world.
No, I am not american but I empathise with the millions of people who fought against the impending hatred and bigotry. The fact that you are in for a rough few years due to an apparent morality sabbatical, is daunting. Stay strong America.

If you voted for Trump, you didn’t just vote against Hillary, you voted against me, a queer girl; against my dad, a non-white man; my little brother who has special needs; all poc; all transgender and nonbinary people; all LGBTQ+ people; all physically and mentally disabled people; all women. You voted against anyone who isn’t a cis, straight, white, physically and mentally able, middle to upper class man.

And THAT’S why I don’t want you following me.

“But what about the warning signs? You have to ignore all the blatant racism, misogyny, bigotry and the people he was surrounding himself with. He told these people he was going to take away the ACA. He encouraged violence against protestors during the campaign. He bragged he'd ban Muslims. He bragged about the wall. He bragged about assaulting women. He mocked the disabled. It's not like there was just one incident. It was a daily deluge of hatred. But they voted for that hatred. They voted to destroy what this country stands for. They voted for a guy who has a VP who believes in conversion therapy. The VP believes that religion should trump law when it comes to anything. Steve Bannon is a self described Leninist. He believes in destroying the state. And, guess what, he's now in a position to do it. All the warning signs were there and they chose to ignore them. Like the people who voted for Hitler in '32.”

-Dude I know had an epic rant on why he ultimately couldn’t sympathise with Trump supporters.

here’s how you can fight against Donald Trump

We’re all shocked and in despair about the election results. It goes to show how deeply the racism, misogyny, xenophobia, and homophobia runs in this country. However, this is not a time to stop fighting. This is a time to keep fighting, campaigning, rallying, protesting. We cannot stay complicit to whatever they throw at us. We cannot let them undo all the progress we’ve made.

Go out and volunteer and donate for a cause for women, LGBT+ communities, against racism, against the rhetoric that has been repeated so many times during Donald’s campaign. 

In 2018, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested, as well as 33 senate seats. Don’t ignore this election. If you couldn’t vote this year, go out and vote in the 2018 election. 

DO NOT MAKE THIS EASY FOR HIM OR HIS SUPPORTERS.

Lastly, please let those people who has been repeatedly targeted during this election cycle know that you love them. Let them know that you don’t stand for the same things that Donald Trump does.

I love this country and I always have and always will. That’s why I’m not gonna give up and be complicit to the hate and fear in the next four years.

Dear feminists,

Why don’t you ever protest or campaign against honor killings, stoning, forced marriages, forced marriages of underage children, genital mutilation, and the many other issues facing women in the middle east?

Women in western society have never had it better. You van vote (your voting rights are not under attack, by the way), own property, own a business, run a business, get any job you want, get an abortion (aka murder), and pretty much do whatever you want. Women recieve lighter prison sentences. Women have more rights than men. Also, the wage gap doesn’t exist.

Women in the middle east and other third world countries do not have these rights. Women are not even allowed to drive in the middle east. A girl suffocated to death after being locked in a dilapidated shed simply for being on her period in Nepal recently. Turkey just published a book that encourages domestic violence and the beating of wives. Last year in Afghanistan, a woman was forced to marry her cousin, and she was stoned to death for running off with her true love.

Where’s your outrage for that? Why the fuck don’t you care about that? Why don’t you ever check YOUR privilege?

-Sincerely, a woman

CALL your senators TONIGHT! RIGHT NOW!

An open letter to all Conservatives - no, we are NOT going to tolerate your shit.

There’s been much talk about how multiculturalism and “identity politics” caused the Trump election, and that POC/women/LGBTQs fighting back against bigotry, has alienated Americans.

First of all:

Trump won the ELECTORAL VOTE

But don’t any of you forget that Hillary Clinton won the POPULAR VOTE by a massive margin - two MILLION people.

Remember that: our side won more votes than your side.

But muh electoral votes-

You can hide behind the electoral college and your gerrymandering for now but this won’t help you keep power forever. 64 million voters for Hillary Clinton will not be held back forever. 

We outnumber you and we will eventually overwhelm you.

Second

We liberals are not ever going to tolerate white nationalist identity politics. We’re not going to bow to your anti-POC racism. We’re not going to tolerate sexism of any sort, not against women, not against men. We’re not going to be bullied by you into tolerating homophobia or religious bigotry.

Get that into your thick skulls. We’re not going to put up with you calling Mexican immigrants and black people rapists and criminals, we’re not going to tolerate businesses refusing to bake cakes for gay couples, and we’re sure as hell and damnation not going to let you send gay marriage to the states so gay people have to gamble on whether they can legally marry. We’re not going to put up with characterizing Muslims as terrorists. We’re not going to let it slide when women are denied access to contraception through their health care plan, and we’re not going to give up one whit until laws are passed mandating all rape kits are processed. We’re not going to put up with voter suppression laws and tactics against students, blacks or women, we won’t let you roll back women’s rights to equal pay and we’re not going to let legalized sexual harassment or marital rape make a comeback.

Get used to it. We’re not going to back down. There will be no surrender and there will be no retreat whatsoever.

Third and most importantly

BEHOLD YOUR FUTURE

Look at how people of color vote. They vote Democrat. Whites live on the Republican Plantation.

The ghost of Christmas Future portends doom for your racist, bigoted cause:

Without that white majority, your Trump nation collapses. Like so:

So, really, we multicultural liberals don’t have to bow to your demands. All we have to do is stand our ground and wait you out. And we most certainly will wait you out. And we will rip this fucking country out of your hands.

Election 2016, Morning After Thoughts:

If you didn’t like Trump, but didn’t vote against him and are shocked he won: remember that WE did this. Don’t blame minorities, “lazy youth”, or whoever else – most of his supporters were white people, and while primarily men, women too. WE DID THIS. When was America “great again”? When women couldn’t vote? When segregation was still a thing? When LGTBQA+ people had to hide who they were out of fear for their lives?

We’ve made progress in this country, but most of it is recent. Marginalized groups should not have to do all the work to keep their rights and fight for them. They need us too. They need our support - for us to fight alongside them. We let them down. Even if you did vote against Trump, the number of people who supported him shows how much work we still have to do. We need to do better. We need to BE better.

I apologize to my minority, LGTBQA+, Muslim, disabled, chronically ill, fellow women, and immigrant friends. We’ve seriously failed you all in this election. But I for one promise to do better and fight harder. If policies are proposed that will hurt you, we will fight them. If they pass, we will fix them. All mistakes can be learned from and corrected. Have faith. (Granted, I’m trying to cheer myself up a lot here too.)

For all the hate that won last night, we just have to love even harder

genderists have no real reason trans women should be included in the feminist movement besides for “they’re women”
ok but what part of the feminist movement even affects them???
feminism is about protecting female bodies and female rights
like ??
the right to vote?? a female bodied issue
right to divorce ?? a female bodied issue
reproductive rights? a female bodied issue
male violence? a female bodied issue
rape and sexual assault?? female bodied issue

like ?? all the things feminism as a movement has grown for and fights against only apply, or greatly apply, to female bodies

trans people get oppressed, yes but not from the sexism females face?? why do you want to be lumped in w a movement .. not .. for .. you???

the “feeling” of being a woman isn’t under attack, only the reality of being one

The “Pray for Betty White” movement is cute and all, but I think the person who really needs our prayers right now is Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a liberal member of the United States Supreme Court. Being a Jewish woman and a big advocate for women’s rights, her presence on the Supreme Court has really helped American law move towards equality. For example, Ginsburg is the first Supreme Court justice to officiate a same sex-wedding, is a big advocate for equal voting rights, and as a feminist, her voice and vote in the Supreme Court has helped protect women’s reproductive rights for years

The problem is, Ginsburg is 83 years old (the oldest member) and a cancer survivor. If she passes away, Trump will be in charge of replacing her presence on the United States Supreme Court, and you can be sure that he’ll replace her with somebody who is against everything she stands for.

At the moment, the Supreme Court consists of 4 liberal members, 3 conservative members, and Justice Kennedy, who is a conservative swing (a conservative member that occasionally sides with the liberals). The confirmation of Trump nominee Neil Gorsuch would give conservatives a potential edge of 5 to 4, which means conservatives could control what cases enter the Supreme Court for a vote, as well as the results. It only takes a simple majority of 5 votes to overturn a case. Nevertheless, we have fared well in a 4 liberal, 4 conservative, and 1 conservative swing court before. It’s not good, but not the end of the world. 

HOWEVER

Ginsburg’s passing would give the conservatives a concrete 5 votes, and a potential 6 votes, which would give conservatives the ability to overturn any major court case, including Roe v. Wade (abortion rights) and Obergefell v. Hodges (gay marriage).

On top of that, Supreme Court justices serve life terms, so you can bet Trump will elect a YOUNG conservative, meaning conservatives have the potential to completely control the Supreme Court for GENERATIONS to come. 

So pray for Ruth Bader Ginsburg y’all.

Why I cannot do that.

I’m reading a lot of posts about Donald Trump and how Americans should support him because of his presidency. Let me just calmly tell you WHY I CANNOT DO THAT.

Donald Trump is not an ordinary president. He is not an ordinary Republican. I personally might have voted Republican had there been another candidate that was opposing Hillary just for the time being(in an extreme situation only) But that wasn’t the case.

Donald Trump is not a Politician. He has absolutely no experience for the job that he has won. He bought his presidency with his billions because be did not win the popular vote. But people ignore this.

They blatantly ignore the fact that he has sexually assaulted multiple women, degraded women, been openly racist to Americans of color, openly mocked a handicapped man at his rally, called wounded veterans “weak” and has removed our healthcare because of his vendetta against Obama.

Donald Trump spends so much time stroking his own ego and having immature Twitter battles online. Why do you all ignore these things? How can you respect a man who hasn’t shown respect in return? I don’t respect that man simply because his position..That would be called Blind Nationalism which is absolutely anti American.

Donald Trump pretends to be a Christian, but what sort of Christian sexually assaults people? What sort of Christian promotes violence and then promises to pay the legal fees for people who do? Is that what your Jesus wanted? No, absolutely not. He is not a Christian, he is not a man of God. He is a man for himself and his bank account.

You people sound like a broken record. You fear Muslims but you fail to realize that the extremists are just a drop in the bucket. They’re are MILLIONS of Muslims in the world who are just regular people. You are terrified of an entire religion because of hate mongering and racism preached by people like Trump. Yes. There are the extremists, but do not assume that ALL Muslims are terrorists. Do not assume that because then the same could be said for white people all being KKK, or Nazis. You cannot generalize like that because you are the one who looks stupid.

Gay marriage is legal because your religion is NOT IN CHARGE OF AMERICA. We are a country of many religions and we are under no orders to abide by a god we do not believe in. If YOU personally don’t want to get gay married, then DON’T. But you have no place telling other human beings what is wrong or right in their own life. It doesn’t matter what you feel about it because it has no effect on you. You shouldn’t try to ruin other people’s lives simply because your own religion doesn’t like it. That’s not how a free country works. You don’t get to do that.

Illegal immigration needs to stop, but building a wall is not the way to handle it. How about making the immigration process more straightforward and cheaper so that families in need of refuge can actually move here legally. How about reforming immigration process to accommodate people that aren’t rich? Why do we need to build another Berlin Wall? That only preaches hatred and otherness. It tells our children that Mexicans are to be feared. It teaches the wrong message. Yes, illegal immigration needs to stop, but it will never stop unless we reform out policies rather than building a plastic bubble around our country.

I don’t hate Republicans. When I talk about Trump I’m not talking about hating everyone. I’m talking g about one man, one man who is about to make things really dangerous for a lot of people.

And I say this to you… If you are a white , straight middle to upper class person, Trump might not seem so bad.you want to know why? Because it won’t effect you personally. You will be fine because you are his target audience. But your friends, colleagues, acquaintances, neighbors etc…They don’t have that luxury. My Muslim and Mexican friends have expressed their absolute terror for what is to come and they were born here. People who aren’t in Trump’s ideal demographic are going to be hurt.

He has already started by taking away healthcare without a suitable replacement. I can understand repealing Obamacare..But if there is no backup..Lots of sick people are going to die. And for some reason, Trump supporters are just okay with this.

You think this man is going to “make America great again”… Tell me, at what point was it so great that we want to return to? We are still striving every day to reach that greatness. We have made tremendous strides with civil rights and gaining our freedoms..But now we might take giant leaps backwards. We are going to lose rights rather than gaining them.

So I ask you, how can you support this man? How can you wake up and support such a monster? Are you that uncaring for your fellow Americans? This isn’t a liberal versus conservative thing. We are way passed that. This is a freedom versus tyrant thing.

When Hitler first came to pow, he was popular, he was joked about and media outlets mocked liberals for being afraid of him. They told people that they were babies for fearing mean words. They treated him as a mockery but many supported those mean words. And that how it starts. It starts with words and then grows to actions. Trump already proposed tagging Muslims even if they were born here, and entering them I to a database…That was one of the first things Hitler did to the Jews when he rose to power. This is not some liberal conspiracy. Tyrants never begin as a fearsome monster..They start as a boisterous, radical leader who commands the attention of the rich and powerful. And you are blind to it.

I am just so utterly baffled by the fact that his followers seem oblivious to all of these things. I am so angry that this country sank so low.

You tell me to give him a Chance, innocent until proven guilty…..He is already guilty. Before he even took office he already did unspeakable things. He has no chances left. You have him chance after chance but your hatred for the left made you blind . You. Ant see passed your own pride. He is a bad man. He is a cancer on this nation.

I don’t condone violence and riots. I don’t agree with vandalism. But I can understand the anger behind them. Protests aren’t supposed to be sanctioned and ask nicely..Thats not what a protest is. And not to mention that the rioters are only a tiny portion of the protests that you for some reason choose to link together with everyone else. There are thousands of peaceful protests going on but you ignore that and only point out the small riots instead.

I think a lot of people need to take a minute to really think about why it is that they are alright with ignoring Trump’s racism, homophobia, sexism and just general nastiness. Why are you okay with this? Why am I labeled as some liberal hippie tree hugger because I happen to care about people outside of my own demographic? I dont intend to feel bad anymore. I’m tired of tiptoeing around the feelings of everyone else. We need to remove this man from office , even if another Republican comes to power I could welcome he or she with open arms for now. This is urgent and incredibly important and I seriously can’t stress that enough. You want me to respect a tyrant? I just gave you more than enough reasons why I cannot do that.

I'M SITTING NEXT TO A TRUMP SUPPORTER.

Three, in fact. My mother. My stepfather. My uncle.

I’m scared, I’m worried, I’m mortified. But most of all, I’m confused.

How can you vote for someone so hateful, so misogynistic, so horrifying? I hear cheers on my left and right as he wins North Carolina, as he wins Iowa. As he wins each state, I realize that more than half the country is on his side. They are against POC, women and LGBTQ+ rights. No matter who wins, this is a major loss for our country as we know it.

I’m worried. I’m scared. And I’m an American who could not feel any farther from home than I do right now.

Shout out to black women for having treated this election with the seriousness it deserved and for - as always - coming through and leading by example.

 93% of all black women voted for Clinton, 93%. Not cause she was their ideal candidate (FAR from it, won’t even go into the legitimate grievances of the Black Community with this woman) but because they realized what was at stake and they stood up tall against Trump. Thank you Ladies.

In comparison - and before I get hit with a wave of “BUT NOT ALL…” inbox contributions, this is a fact statement - 64% of non-college educated and only 51% of college educated white women (Fifty - One - Percent) voted for Clinton who’s…you know, a college educated white woman.  

Just think for a few minutes: Imagine it is January 21, 2017… and it is Donald Trump standing in from of the Capital…  imagine he is taking the Oath of Office and then imagine what it will be like to have him in the Oval Office, making the decisions that will affect your lives and your futures. Imagine having a president who demeans women, mocks the disabled, insults Latinos, African Americans, Muslims, P.O.W.s. Who pits people against each other, instead of pulling us together. Someone with a very thin skin, who lashes out at anyone who challenges him, who praises adversaries like Vladimir Putin, who picks fights with our allies and even insults the Pope.
—  Hillary Clinton summarizing only a handful of the reasons why you should not vote for Donald Trump and should vote for her (because nothing is guaranteed and I don’t want to live in a country run by the embodiment of all that’s evil in the world)

I have always felt comfortable in my house. Sure, my family has different ideals, we’ve had our arguments, but until recently, these remained a simple difference in opinion.
Now? Now, I’m almost ashamed to say I’m frightened. I’m frightened of my own family. No, they would never hurt me, not intentionally. And yes, they love me, wholeheartedly.
But they are voting for Trump.
They are voting for Trump, and through some twisted mental gymnastics have convinced themselves that he’s not a dangerous human being. Phrases like, “He’s apologized for his comments against women” or “He’s gotten better now his campaign has taken off” resonate through my home daily.
My safe place, a place that is supposed to be a sanctuary from the dangers of the world, has been corrupted.
It has been corrupted by hate, bigotry, and downright brainwashing.
Some may find this post dramatic, some may say it’s all a ploy to twist people towards my way of thinking. I’m here to say this post is nothing but a young queer woman voicing her concerns for the sake of herself and millions like her.
As I write this, I can hear Trump’s final speech playing on the living room TV. Each cheer, each phrase laden with underlying hatred makes me more fearful by the second.
Contrary to what my family has said, Trump has not ‘gotten better’. He has not changed his views, not since the beginning of his campaign, and certainly not since the many deplorable actions in his past. He has learned to be a politician. He has learned when to say the right things at the right times, and when to keep the wrong in.
Trump has not changed. Some scripted apologies may convince some, but it will not convince me.
I’m begging you, everyone of age, vote. Please.
What I’m feeling right now, in my own home, this crippling fear? If Trump wins, that fear will be spread across every aspect of my life, and the lives of countless others.
Do not allow this to happen. Do not vote third party, that’s a wasted vote that will split the Democratic vote and enable Trump’s win.
Do not vote for Trump.
You may not like Hillary, you may think she’s just as bad as Trump. Hell, I’m not her biggest fan myself. But I can assure you, should Trump get elected, his damage will be tenfold that of Hillary’s.
As a queer woman, as a young voter, as a fellow human being, I implore you: don’t let fear win. Don’t let bigotry back into this country.
Don’t let Trump into office.

here’s, um. here’s the deal.

i get that there are people who proclaim, “I don’t like what Trump says about women, gays, minorities, etc”, who voted for Trump because of his policies or whatever. and i have a million disagreements about his policies, but that’s not what this is about.

you are racist if you voted for him.

you are sexist, homophobic, transphobic, islamophobic, xenophobic, ableist, and fucking racist if you voted for him.

i do not care if you were vocally against his treatment of minorities since the start. if there was a point where you thought to yourself, “i don’t like his bigotry and prejudice, but his policies are good enough that i’ll vote for him”, then congratulations. you’re racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, islamophobic, ableist, and xenophobic.

you decided that a man who has consistently only ever railed against minorities was a good choice because of his policies. you decided that the policies were worth the millions of lives that he puts in jeopardy. you are in a place of such immense privilege that, when weighing the pros and cons, decided that Trump’s virulent hatred of minorities was something you could accept.

you are a bigot, and you have to accept that now. congratulations.

and go fuck yourself.

In case you missed it---

The Senate voted 51 to 48:
1. To end coverage for preexisting conditions, veterans benefits, and aid to rural hospitals.
2. To remove discrimination protection for women in healthcare.
3. Against the provision allowing children to remain on their parent’s insurance till the age of 26.
4. To cut off funding for the Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
5. Against ACA contraceptive coverage and maternity care provision.
6. To direct committees to send budget legislation to defund and repeal the Affordable Care Act.
For those who get health insurance through work, no pre-existing conditions. Lifetime caps for coverage are back for everyone.
Real and disastrous actions are being taken that will affect more than just the 20-30 million people who will lose their health care coverage and the 3 million people who will lose their jobs.
Despite their assertions of this being an action to “repeal and replace,” no viable alternative plan has been proposed. The House votes Friday.
As of this moment, no replacement exists.

let me tell you something about the women’s march on washington

I want to preface this by saying that, as someone who did go to the march, that to see so many people across the nation emboldened to mobilize against a common cause is always inspiring. activism through protest serves a very important purpose of grabbing attention and disrupting the status quo, which is necessary if one wishes to encourage change. 

that being said, you need to want to wake up the morning after the women’s march on washington and actually want to fucking do something.

it’s funny because this election is the first time in my lifetime that i’ve ever seen so many white women vilify a leader who is a direct threat to my safety, meanwhile white women simultaneously came out in droves to vote for that very same leader. as a queer women of color, that’s highly fucking suspicious to me. 

i’ve never felt solidarity with white women. i was one of a handful of POC scholarship kids at a rich nyc all-girls prep school covered in murals of white suffragettes and filled with the entitled daughters of fortune 500 men. i learned quickly that the majority of those girls did not know my struggles as a queer WOC and did not care to learn. years later, this has not changed. 

so you know for damn sure women of color noticed when those same white women created the “Million Woman March” and decided to co-opt the 1997 Million Woman March that was marched by and large by black women and made possible by the labors of black people. now the name was changed to the “women’s march on washington” and you had a bunch of really amazing ass women of color signing on as co-chairs (look up Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Linda Sarsour, please) but i bring this up to say this. 

white women who are new to caring about social issues because of this election need to stop pretending they care or wake the fuck up. because i have zero patience for women who are over here marching to defend the kind of white feminism that fucking failed women of color and elected trump in the first place and then are quick to turn around and start criticizing the black lives matter movement. i have zero patience for women who are fucking wearing safety pins out of “solidarity” and are actively vilifying the existence of queer and trans women, esp. queer and trans women of color. 

i have zero fucking patience for white women who attended this women’s march today, and are now going to go home, put their feet up, and not do anything else for the remainder of this presidency while not giving a shit about people who don’t slot themselves into their convenient brand of white feminism. because, no, protesting and holding up signs isn’t going to do shit if it’s not followed up with actual action and inclusivity. 

give a shit about women of color. give a shit about queer women of color. give a shit about the people who have been fighting for rights, dismantling the status quo, organizing strikes, and affecting policy long before you. rule number one of activism is to know why you are choosing the form of action you are. if you are showing up to the women’s march because it “feels right” and it’s “cool and trendy” and not because you have a commitment to being an agent of change, then you’ve missed the whole point. 

liberal white women: i fucking see you. and you have a hell of a lot of work to do to convince me that you are here for me and not just for your white, cis, het, able-bodied christian friends.
