It’s bad. Real bad. I mean, I do feel heartened by the crowds in the streets today protesting the inauguration of Trump. But we need to be organized; we need to resist; we need to be ready when things get worse. Trump has promised they will.
My boyfriend and I decided to take a road trip this week, hoping to avoid the Internet, the inauguration, the gaslighting. We drove along the border between the US and Mexico taking photos, being hassled by cops, and confirming my suspicions that much of Arizona is pretty awful. (Sorry, Arizona readers. I’m sure you’re wonderful.)
