I haven't said a lot about American politics. As I'm not an American, it has felt like it isn't really my right. And I like to keep my presence on social media a positive one. But while I may not be an American, I am a human being. And I'm angry. And I've had enough.
My very best friend in the world is under attack on a multitude of fronts.
She's female. Boom - under attack.
She's mixed race. Boom - under attack.
She's a lesbian. Boom - under attack.
She's sick, like really sick. Boom - under attack.
Her son is trans. Boom - under attack.
And it makes me so fucking angry that there are so many people who are so ugly, so awful, so full of hate that they are doing everything they can to take her down. Her and millions and millions of others like her.
Every morning I wake up and see the news and I get angry again. I can't see that man's name without my hackles rising. I can't see his face without getting so angry. Just blindingly angry. The sound of his voice makes me want to throw things. He is so hateful, so awful, and he's the symbol of everything that is wrong in the world. He stands for all the terrible people who care so little for anyone other than themselves that they're willing to watch people die, to watch people live in poverty so they can make an extra buck.
Well fuck you very much to him and his party of assholes.
My heart bleeds for anyone who is hurting under this administration. We are all human beings first and foremost and everything else is just details - it shouldn't matter what race, religion, gender, etc, that anyone is - everyone deserves the right to live the best life they can.
I want to end this on a positive note somehow, but I'm struggling to find it. I guess I'll bring it back to my best friend. I love her and I want her to be happy. Hell, I want her to be alive. I want all of you whose lives are under attack to be happy and alive.
Be strong. You are not alone. Love will overcome hate. It has to. It just has to.
