I woke up this morning, and that was my first thought. It did not damper the lump in my throat or the wrenching feeling in my heart. I shut my phone on and off to make sure it wasn’t a glitch.
Donald Trump is President of the United States. How could we let this happen?
Good morning America! Oh wait, you’re an immigrant? Deported! Gay? We’re going to use your tax dollars to fund conversion therapy! Muslim? Watch list! This is the next four years, and we brought it upon ourselves.
When did we divide? It’s 2016, and we let an open racist, homophobic, xenophobic, sexist, misogynistic bigot to be our President. I’m not being rude, I’m telling the truth. And I am telling everyone right now, that this is a mistake. The repercussions that will last after his Presidency are going to be so detrimental to so many people, and we all let it happen.
I am ashamed that we let this happen. My tax dollars will be going towards LGBTQ+ conversion therapy. I want to get rid of it! He wants to pass a law that states that storeowners can religiously discriminate against LGBTQ+ people. So what am I supposed to do? And he wants to repeal Roe v. Wade. Why do I deserve to lose the right to my body?
I’m sorry I wasn’t born a heterosexual, white mail, and trust me, no matter how proud I am of being queer, I really wish I was right now. I’m terrified for the next few years. My heart is heavy for all of the people who will be effected by his policies, and who will feel daggers in their hearts because of the words that he says. I’m with you. I’m here.
So, what? This post is kind of a jumble of words. It’s before seven in the morning, and I honestly feel terrible about this.
I don’t accept his presidency, and I don’t respect his opinion. I am going to work as hard as I can in my life, so that I can stand up to that. And every day, I will stand up and speak out for what’s right. Period.
Thanks y’all for reading. You all are amazing, and I hope you know that. Sorry I hadn’t posted in a while, but I’m back, so yay!
Have a good morning, and keep speaking up.
Your Queer Queen ♥
