I’m sorry, H. I love you. But what I’m hearing from you is that everyone who voted for trump is just like trump. And that is where my mind has been through this whole election; I lost friends over it. And I’m totally okay with that.

And you’re right; there is an underbelly of horrific in this country that has never gone away, no matter how much we wanted to believe it had. Or, that it was at least diminishing with time.

I’m with you on ALL OF THIS


I don’t believe everyone who voted for trump did it because they think he’s a swell guy. Some people (a lot, I think) voted for trump because they thought Hillary was worse. Truly.

That they are wrong isn’t the point. The point is that middle America is so fed up with the status quo that they put a madman in the White House rather than another politician.

And to be clear, I still think a great majority of voters had a problem with a woman president. I still think this is FUCKED. I just can’t paint an entire subgroup of human beings with the same brush.

How does that not make me just like them?

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
