No.

I can’t in good conscience vote for a woman who was against gay marriage up until recently, who didn’t give voice to any hate-crime legislation on behalf of LGBTQA until recently, who actively undermined — and whose surrogates continue to actively undermine — the fight for fifteen (which disproportionately affects the very groups you claim to care oh-so-much about), who has said publicly and recently that she is open to working with Republicans on passing federal restrictions on abortions as long as they don’t interfere with women’s access to abortion in the case of severe medical problems, whose foreign policy specifically and wantonly disregards and endangers the lives of millions of women and queer folks who don’t live in the US and whose lives matter JUST as much as yours does, whose law enforcement policies endanger the lives and livelihoods of POC and QFOC who DO live in the US and whose lives matter JUST as much as yours does, whose history of action and voting on immigration is like holding up a near-perfect mirror to what little sense I can make of Trump’s incoherent rambling, and whose ENTIRE worldview is based on the exact same primary assumption as Donald Trump’s — that having power and wealth means you get to play by a different set of rules than the rest of us.

Trump is a belligerent racist, classist, misogynistic homophobe who has designs on the Presidency for the sake of making things better and more entrenched for people like him.

Clinton is a closeted racist, classist, misogynistic homophobe who has designs on the Presidency for the sake of making things better and more entrenched for people like her.

See? I /can/ see the difference between them.

Thanks for the extra incentive to not vote for HRC, though, you privileged windbag.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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