Dear Trump Supporter who says they love me,
Amanda Deibert

This is perfectly put. I keep trying to explain to people why, as someone in Britain, I care that Trump was elected.

I care because he will harm people, he and Pence have promised that, and Pence has a record of support for it.

I am a disabled, mentqlly ill, bisexual, leftwing, polyamorous, woman. I am not exactly the ‘upstanding clean cut citizen’ type they’re after. I am scared for the people I know in the US, and the people I don’t. I am terrified for LGBTQIA+ folks, for people of colour, for disabled and mentally ill people, for women.

I hope that it doesn’t work out as bad as I fear. I hope that you’re all okay.

But that doesn’t mean that I forgive anyone who voted for this racist, homophobic, misogynist, transphobic, ableist shitshow.

All the best to you and your family.
