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.

It feels so much like a personal betrayal when it's the own family, doesn't it. :(

My parents too. The same parents who only let me read '50s books as a kid because post-70s books had people kissing and still routinely tell me not to leave the house after dark because men might assault me ("and they'd be on steroids!! so it doesn't matter that you're a black belt!!!") helped put that guy in the White House. *rage*

And when I try to point that out what I get is "those are feminist words" and "you've been brainwashed by the liberals!!"

I'm so done.
