The Day After

Needless to say, getting up this morning was difficult.  

I refuse to support a president who does not respect me.  I refuse to support a president who does not respect the LGBTQIA* community, people of color, and who represents xenophobia, islamophobia, racism, and misogyny.  

I am afraid of the implications the election's results have on attitudes toward sexual assault.  The election of a man who has bragged about sexual assault, who has has over a dozen women accuse him of assaulting them, indicates a sad reality, that too much of the country does not care about that issue.

As someone who is dealing with the ramifications of my own assault, the election of this man is extremely invalidating.  It hurts that my country does not care about sexual assault as an issue, or does not see the problems of having a man who represents rape-culture representing our country.

I am grateful to be on Wash U's campus right now, since it provides me with a space to express my frustration and anger.  I know if I were in my rural hometown, I would not have that opportunity.

    Thank you for sharing with us! Do you think not respecting the President-elect will work out for society in the long run?

    It's scary what it says that someone who supports so many awful things.
