This is not normal.

Sexual abuse survivors are horrified.

This is not normal.

Children are scared.

This is not normal.

It's one thing to deeply disagree on another party's policy, but this person who will be sitting in the Oval office is simply not a good man. He has hurt people, he has destroyed business and left a path of destruction in his wake. It's not sour grapes, it simply isn't normal and I find myself resenting people who are trying to normalize what has happened.

I don't want to be told that we should unite behind a person who has shown nothing but contempt for anything and anyone who didn't support him.

And aside from my facebook screed, That is all I can write about today.

As always,

and

Raine
