We’re back, bitches!

      Today is Veteran’s Day. 11/11. Thank you all for your service.
      This week – however – can suck it.
      This past week saw the single most qualified candidate in the history losing an election that was the culmination of the ugliest, most hateful, most divisive campaign in modern history. She lost to a billionaire reality TV star, famous for being a douchebag, rampant misogyny (including dozens of counts of sexual assault and misconduct), cheating on all of his ‘hot’ trophy wives, and for his “brand” (which includes multiple bankruptcies, massive failures, a single loss claim 20 years ago of that totalled nearly a billion dollars and zero income tax paid since then).
      This past week saw the nation’s first black president forced to have a meeting with his replacement: a man who ran on a campaign of racism, Islamaphobia, bigotry, misogyny, and bigotry of all sorts, and a man who is endorsed (CELEBRATED!) by the KKK.
      Let’s let that disgusting fact sink in.
      And so in the horrific aftermath, after months (years) of just sitting (mostly) silent as family and friends and strangers post ignorant or naive or hateful thing after hateful thing on Facebook, I spoke out to several “family members”. I may or may not have called one a cunt (spoiler alert, I did, and yes, he is one).
      I blocked him. I was contemplating blocking a lot of them.
      Instead, I deactivated my account for awhile. I uninstalled Facebook app from my phone. I was wasting too many hours there anyway.
      If I don’t write every day – that’s fine. If I do, that’s fine too.
      But I’ve decided that all the things I’m sharing on Facebook could very easily, and more productively, be written about here.
      And yes, as always – I may curse, I may vent, I may say something (and fervently believe it) one day, and then change my mind the next.
      It is my blog.
      If you don’t like it, fuck off.
      Love & Rainbows,
Signed, Josie
