While perusing Facebook, which is bad for my blood pressure but provides an AMAZING amount of content for this website, I came across this lovely meme:
… and you know me. I can’t resist an excuse to let loose and give hell to people who piss me off with their hate and oppression masquerading as their morals. So I responded.
I have every right to live here and demand change from the oppressive autocracy that has slowly overtaken this country and made it impossible for me to make a living wage, pay my student loans, or buy a home.
I have every right to protest when the people in power are corrupted and sick, and take pride in restricting the rights and freedoms of those who they have continually oppressed since they first stole this previously inhabited country from the population that ALREADY LIVED HERE.
I have every right to be angry, to make signs, to march in the streets, to be disruptive and loud and demand change so that people who exist, despite the absurdly religious right's conservative beliefs that there are only two genders and no one could possibly be mentally fit and love someone of the same sex or identify differently from the body they were born with.
I have every right to do everything I do, and this is the hill I will die on. And damnit, I will do my best to take you with me when I do.
And that is how I feel about THAT.
