I’m tired today.
I’m tired of posting about the racial and sexual attacks that are going on in America following the election. I’m tired of it because people refuse to believe that it is happening. I’ve just read a bunch of tweets from women who have been grabbed and threatened and no one seems to care. People are flat-out saying they are lying.
I’m tired because I know it’s going to get worse. That people are going to end up dying, being killed. That is what happens when hate and fear rule us. We give in to the stupid actions that get people killed.
I’m tired because this is the world that I’m living in. That the progression successive generations have made towards equality have been wiped away with fear-mongering and hatred, and I have to ask, aren’t we better than this? Shouldn’t we be better than this?
