Rage and Disappointment

I'm from a red state, from a red family, tho I know my politics deviated early. So I'm used to different politics and visions for the future.

But right now I am so angry and so disappointed and so disgusted in every single person I know -- including many I love -- for voting for 🍊👹 I don't even know how to proceed with you.

(Most of you have blocked me on FB. That's how *you* proceed.)

I see the white nationalist hatred that 🍊👹 has unleashed and that you've sanctioned, and I'm not sure how I will ever forgive you. How can I ever sit with you and not talk about this? How can I ever break bread with you if I'm supposed to be silent?

This I know:

I will be here for your children -- your queer kids and your trans kids and your immigrant kids and your brown kids and your alter-abled kids and your adopted kids and your daughters and and all those whose worlds you want to foreclose because *they're* curious and *you're* a small-minded, fearful asshole...
