I'm shocked and depressed today. Our nation took some big steps forward over the years and now it seems like it won't be taking steps back so much as falling backwards on its ass. Enough voters showed they would rather embrace sexism, racism, homophobia, and other negative things as opposed to moving forward. Instead of being proud of my country I am embarrassed by and concerned for it. I fear for the safety of my friends who are Muslim, Latino, LGBTQ, and basically anything other than a White Christian Male. One of the worst candidates ever in the history of the Presidency won--someone with zero political knowledge or experience, hatred in his heart, and prone to telling lies.
So I now ask, really America? This is who enough of you wanted to win that he actually went from being a joke to our President-Elect? I just want everyone who voted for him to know they get to take full responsibility as gay rights, abortion rights, minority rights, and basically any progress we've made is eroded. Donald Trump is going to be our 45th President, I hope we survive it and he isn't our last.
