That election though....  
I don't think there is anything I can add about this topic that hasn't been rehashed to death in the last few days. The damage done to America's soul will not be repaired any time soon.

But I wanted to make sure the few of you that still use LJ are feeling okay and extend virtual hugs to those that need them.

;_; is how I feel, but it's not like it's unfamiliar, having had to live through Reagan and Bush I and II. I've just resolved to myself to keep an eye out for all of the LGBT folk and women and POC and poor people (...and the list goes on) around me and work to keep us all safe as best I can, and wear my safety pin for at least the next 4 years. Many of us have had to live through this creepy, hostile, BS sort of environment before, and I have faith we'll live through it this time, as well. *big hugs* to you and hopes that things aren't too crazy where you are.

I was old enough to remember Dubya. The recount aside, I don't remember the full on hatred and comparisons to Hitler till aboit halfway through his first term. And while there were fewer people who were out as LGBT in the early 2000s, I don't remember the ones i knew being this afraid. Many it was back then they had a lot fewer rights to lose.

Luckily, i live in San Diego, so locally i don't expect much to change here. But in the podunk hometown I left? Not so much.
