It’s Official. We are Screwed.

I am completely shell shocked.  How could this happen???  Somehow the Republican party has commandeered our country.  I fear we are in deep trouble on so many fronts.

I got up this morning –after staying up til 1 am watching election coverage on TV.  I rose to a feeling of complete disgust at the news that Trump had won the election somehow.  And to know that he did NOT win by majority vote, but by electoral vote just drives me mad!  Why doesn’t majority vote count?  I don’t get it.

I am a very out and around Butch.  This won’t be a good thing for me or people like me.  Females, queers, LGBT, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims and many other marginalized poplations will be rife for discrimination from the Trump administration. With roughly 50% of my country aligning with his asshole it’s like half of America has white supremacist views.  Either that or they don’t see how racist this guy really is.

What do we do now that this hate filled man of many temperamental attitudes is going to try to lead our country?  I know many said they would move out of the country and it seems that the Canadian immigration website went down because of overload last night.  But that isn’t the answer.  Moving would only bleed the good people from our borders.  Somehow we have to band together and work tirelessly to make sure that our voices are not silenced by this.  We must mobilize for the fights that will come.

I grieve for all that was truly lost last night.  I am afraid of what is to come.  I fear this man will single handedly wreck all that is good.  I’m afraid of all of the people who voted for him.  I fear what it’s going to be like for such an out Butch lesbian to walk thru a Trump ruled country after he is done eliminating all of the rights I and other fought so hard to get.  If this isn’t a reason to stay in the closet I don’t know what is!!!

I steered clear of voicing my political views here for the most part up until this blog post.  I was stressed out by the whole election fearing just this outcome.  Now I think it’s time to speak out and to prepare ourselves for some long hard fights that will certainly be coming to us soon enough.  This loss was the hardest ever in my political lifetime.  I just hope and pray that it’s only a 4 year thing and it doesn’t destroy what 240 years has built up.

Call me what you will.  But I cannot call him MY President.

I worked this morning and it occurred to me that most likely 50% of my customers probably voted for Trump….disturbing and very unsafe feeling.

I am a pretty relaxed, proud, Butch and a native Mainer who enjoys reading, writing, blogging, vlogging and social interaction. I live in southern Maine, near the coast with my 2 small dogs and I hail from a very large, loving family that is historically rooted here. I write about my life, my experiences, living successfully with HIV, my YouTube experiences, and just about anything that piques my interest. This blog may contain profanity and sexual situations, and is not intended for younger audiences. Read at your own risk. At 54 I see life as just beginning a new chapter, and have decide this is the time that I need to write the stories that got me to this point. I believe we live our lives in chapters, changing, evolving and moving continuously with the times. I love to laugh, have discussions, debates and even the occasional nonsense conversation! I generally enjoy people, but not drama, hatred, ignorance or those who choose to feel they are somehow elite or superior to another simply due to their mere existence. I try to be very conscious of the health of the world around me - environmentally, socially, economically, and ethically. The people who are dear to me know me as having a tough exterior, filled with marshmallow and crunchy peanut butter. I continually strive to be the best I can be, especially to address life head on...always.

  1. I honestly don’t think all of his supporters are white supremacists. There is definitely a group of them that are, that’s always been the case. Nothing new there. Things are probably going to get rough but we can not just go back into the closet and hide. We (sane, level headed, open minded people) are actually in the majority in this country and that gives us power to make a difference. We lost this election but we have to stick together and fight for our rights. I’m not giving up just because Hillary lost. I will never be able to call him President Trump either. He is Mr. Trump to me and until he earns it that’s all he’ll ever be to me.

  2. I never thought this would happen. When I saw how the vote was going I felt sick. Now there are reports of violence and protesting…I fear there will be more. One of my grandkids came home and said that one of her classmates was moving to Canada. The family is Muslim and they are too afraid to remain here.
    Just keep the faith.
