I discovered this morning that my fears were valid -- that my mother is, in fact, pleased with the outcome of this election. After a brief but rage-inducing exchange, I told her that she is no longer the intelligent, open-minded woman who raised me and that I have nothing further to say to her, possibly ever.

If I'm not willing to accept casual support of misogyny, racism, xenophobia, bigotry, and dangerous ignorance from my own mother, I'm certainly not going to accept it from anyone else.

I've been pretty forgiving of differing views and opposing political alignments in the past, but this is something else entirely. I doubt that any of you on my f-list are Trump supporters, but if you are, kindly remove yourselves posthaste. As a like-minded person succinctly put it, "We are not friends."

...On the other hand, if any of you are aware of any legitimate protest movements to make this Not Happen, at least not without an enormous fight, pass me some links.
