I’m sad and disappointed. I have today to figure out what I’m going to say to my kids tonight about this…about why half of our country supports hate. My son thinks Trump is a literal monster, so I need to defuse that situation. I need them to feel safe and loved.
I never want to hear again that women and men are on the same playing field. Not even fucking close. Misogyny is alive and thriving in this nation of ours. Being a bigoted, racist, sexual predator is preferable to being female. That much is clear. Thanks for letting me know where I stand, guys.
Congratulations, white people. We did this. I hope you’re happy.
D and I have been up most of the night. We are both bummed and a bit shocked. So we have decided to stay home today and have a nice day together.
As bummed as I am, I’ve gotta say there are some real gems on social media today.
Oh and stop saying you’re moving to Canada. Canada doesn’t want your ass. STOP. Stay here and help clean up the fucking mess. We have four years to get shit done and then vote this motherfucker out.
I still believe love trumps hate.
For what it’s worth, I do very much hope that Trump surprises us all and is a good (or at least not a horrible) president.
