so the words I have will have to suffice.
I am angry. I am disappointed. I feel betrayed by my fellow citizens.
Certainly not everyone who voted for Trump is anti-gay or wants to hurt me. But their vote ensured that LGBT people will be hurt because of the policies of the administration they have elected. VP-elect Pence thinks it is okay to electrocute gay and lesbian teens via some archaic “conversion” therapy — a process even their proponents admit leads to suicide in almost half the cases they attempt. In their mind, that’s okay because it’s better to be dead than gay. How fucking hateful do you have to be in order to believe such a thing?
There are so many, many reasons Trump should not have been elected.
There are so many things I could say, but right now I am grieving the loss of the country I thought I knew. I just didn’t realize how many bigots and hateful ignorant fools there are in this country.
