«Was the person who posted that doing it ironically (that is, for humorous shock value), or did they mean it? What I've realized is that it doesn't truly matter. Whether we admit it or not, the things we joke about become the things we're serious about. If you heard a rumor about a massive food poisoning outbreak at Taco Bell, you'd immediately believe it -- not because of any previous incidents, but because of a million hacky "Taco Bell gave me diarrhea" bits. If you hear 10,000 jokes about how black people are all drug dealers and murderers, it will reframe your reality just as well as 10,000 filtered headlines. Better, even, because you don't realize notice it happening.»

I find myself having to re-evaluate some things. For a long time, I've thought that the US was immune to the sort of White Nationalism that's been sweeping Europe. I thought that because the US had its racial tensions out in the open, discussed, that we were… well, the fact that we were having the conversation meant that progress was happening, and so long as progress was happening… sigh. I thought it couldn't happen here.

I was wrong. It can happen here.

I'm really worried for a lot of people.

I'm worried for everyone I know who takes hormone replacement therapy. Those on T are already on a highly regulated substance. I'm worried maybe access will go away. At least congress is slow, and has bigger meals to cook.

I'm worried for all the marriages of my friends that only recently got federal recognition. I'm really worried here. God knows who we're gonna get as a supreme court justice, and its that court that provides that recognition.

Along those lines, I'm worried for women's ownership over their own bodies. Access to birth control, access to abortions.

I'm worried for all my coworkers who recently got citizenship, or who are still in the application process. I'm worried for all my friends who aren't white Christians, especially worried for my friends with Muslim families.

I'm so worried.

But, I'm most worried for the technical women in my social circles,who battle every day with walking the fine line that lies between "competent women are hated" and "any minor failure is magnified for women and overrides successes" and "you have to be 10 times more competent, and constantly prove your competence, just to come to the table". I don't know how to make it better. I don't even know how to help listen. I just feel completely lost, and ... afraid that people will begin giving up.

“The American people, in our infinite wisdom, have chosen suicide.

There is no less dramatic way of describing it. Tonight, the American people have all but certainly handed the Oval Office, the most powerful office in the world, to an unstable, thin-skinned, narcissistic, impulsive, crazy person with a coterie of white supremacists and vicious, angry nihilists riding in on his coattails.”
