A Time to be Loud!!
Look around you. Look at all of the shit going on. If you are no t a cisgendered, straight, white, Christian, you are kind of fucked. Of course, if you are, then you have a glorious leader that is a cisgendered, straight, white, 'Christianish' leader that is doing the fucking. Immigrants? Fucked. LGBTQIA+? Fucked. Liberal or leftist? Fucked. Nancy Pelosi? Fucked. Muslim? Fucked. Brown? Fucked. Black? Fucked. Are you getting the picture.
Here is the thing. The people that are cisgendered, straight, white, and Christian are loud. But, only loud. Most of the time they don't carry facts. Just loudness. And vitriol against immigrants, LGBTQIA+, liberals, leftists, the poor, Muslims, brown people, black people.
So, here is what we need to do...those of us that are fucked. There are three things that are vitally important.
First, vote. We can make a difference. We must coalesce behind a candidate after the primaries. And vote. And tell people to vote. And help people to vote . Drive people to vote. And talk to people about voting . If we all decided to vote, all of us immigrants, LGBTQIA+, liberals, leftists, the poor, Muslims, brown and black people, we can stop this madness. We can have a society for everyone. Even them.
Second, educate yourself. Read. And read reliable sources. Find out what is going on in the world, in the country, in your state, and in your community. Develop cogent arguments . Don't resort to name calling. Or insults. Use logic. Of course, it probably won't work because people don't listen. But, do it anyway. And talk to like-minded people.
Third, be loud. Why the fuck do you think all of this is happening. People are afraid of loud. So, be louder. Speak up. Don't sit silently. Post things. Stand up for injustice. If you see something happening that isn't right, intervene. And be loud.
