Trump won. Oh my God…this is not just a nightmare.
The disappointment and dismay I feel about this is so huge that words fail me at the moment to describe my thoughts and feelings.
However, there is something going on that I noticed today that I feel the need to address:
All over social media, I keep seeing “be positive!” and “unity now!” and “let’s just all get along!” type posts and comments, and quite frankly, they are dismissive, inappropriate, and annoying.
We have the right to feel the way we feel — disillusioned, disappointed, angry, betrayed, sickened.
Women/Lesbians do NOT have to “Be nice” and “get along”.
It okay to feel the darkness that this election has cast over the nation; being surrounded by darkness is a very real thing today for myself and many others.
Bottom line: The truth hurts sometimes…especially today.
If you truly care about us, you will accept the fact that our feelings and fears are valid, and stop trying to sweep this travesty under the rug.
You will stand with us in our pain, rather than encouraging us to make YOU more comfortable.
If you cannot do that, then please kindly fuck the fuck off.
