Women and minorities must roar at this time. We must gather and support one another. We must show our children that anything is possible, and that there is a supportive social net for accomplishing your unconventional dreams.
I think the thing that hurts the most about this election is just how hard people have made it for Hillary Clinton. That this country hates women so much that it would even be a contest. That so very few people are willing to even examine their bias against her. That she’s had to weather some of the most vile tactics we’ve ever seen in American politics. But damn, she fucking did it. She got this far, not because she read some watered-down feminist motto. She got this far because she read the warning labels and decided to do it anyway.
