Dear Trump Supporter who says they love me,
Amanda Deibert

I find it remarkably terrifying that it is the people who are afraid for their safety that are being asked to do all the work of reconciling and “coming together as Americans” while I have yet to see even the tiniest movement toward conciliation on the part of the Trump supporters. They denigrated my safety — and yes, they had reasons for doing so. But they still did it. I’d be a fool not to learn from their actions — and frankly, I’d be an even bigger fool to just blindly trust that they have good intentions, when all I have seen is that my safety, and the safety of others in marginalized populations is something easy for them to dismiss.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
