I’ve been pretty quiet this election cycle, but now, I’m starting to get aggravated.
It’s one thing to have an opinion about a politician, but it’s another thing to talk about millions of people — including myself — who you don’t even know.
I’m also a bit disappointed Medium decided to like this post. As a Medium daily active user (DAU) and a Trump supporter, it makes me feel like I need to hide on the platform.
I have never said anything of this sort to my friends and peers, who don’t have the same stances as me (ie “I’m with her”). I don’t make them feel like crap. I don’t make them feel like outcasts. It’s just stupid to group and generalize Trump supporters. But maybe that’s just because I like to think I’m somewhat of a good person. I guess I’m not though, according to this post.
I’ve been thinking about this topic for a while. Hopefully this is the motivation I need to finish writing my post about this election.
