Today we elected a bigot. A racist. A sexist. A homophobic. Today my country let me down in more ways than one. We had the chance to make change, we had the chance to make history, we had the chance to continue to move forward. We blew it. Instead now we are going to move backwards. Whether or not any new laws get passed, whether or not the progress President Obama made is erased, they voted for a president and vice president who believe that women don’t have the right to their own body. They voted for a president and vice president who believe women should be punished for abortions. They voted for a president and vice president who don’t have any respect for the LGBT community. They voted for a president and vice president who has no regard for people of color. For these reasons I can not give respect to Trump voters. The results of the election divided us as a nation, it shows that we haven’t come far enough. It shows that a woman is still beat out for a leadership position by a man, even if she is more qualified. We will not be silenced. We will continue to use our voices to educate the masses. I will continue to move forward without trump and his supporters. We the people, who have felt deserted from our country need to take it back. Let’s continue to stand for what we believe in. Let’s pray to god that trump proves us all wrong, but lets join together for when he proves us right.
It’s been a great year in America for LGBT people everywhere. From Caitlyn Jenner publicly announcing her transition, to gay marriage being legal in all 50 states. I feel like America is doing something right for once. I am extremely excited that my children one day will be able to love deeply, love naturally, love whomever they want. Love always wins, love always conquers hate.
