OBAMA WINS - Let's hide on Twitter.

I've heard way too many friends express disgust over hatred/ intolerance being spewed all over their facebooks, mostly from ROmney supporters. But instead of saying anything, they are choosing to 'be the bigger person.'


You know what? The bigger person DEFENDS the minority. The bigger person stands up for what they believe in - for what they know to be right.

The bigger person says, 'It's FUCKED UP that human beings are having their rights VOTED on, and aren't being granted the same rights that others have.'

Do not EVER let a bigot silence your voice. Your voice is the only one you've got.

Why aren't you using yours?

No hate for them - their intolerance blocks logic and compassion from their hearts and minds. But I'm sorely disappointed in you - because I hold you to higher standards than them.

I expect better from you - from me, from us.

USE your fucking voice. You used it to vote. Now use it to spread love, to stamp out bigotry.

To show support for those who desperately need to hear it.

  1. I've been seeing a lot of "I don't care who you vote for just get out and vote" posts today. You know what. I DO fucking care who you vote for. Because that homophobic out of touch lying sack of poo is a poor choice.

  2. I volunteered at the polls today, and I pasted a smile on and thanked people for coming out to vote. I wanted to yell at every woman who accepted the Republican slate handout, but I couldn't. I was there representing Marriage Equality, and starting fights in the parking lot of an elementary school didn't seem the best way to about making a good impression on the electorate.

    If I had been there as a regular citizen, I would have asked everyone with a uterus how they could vote for any Republican candidate in good conscience.

  3. Nice. I agree. There is no point in having a voice if you don't use it to do good things in the world - especially when it comes to standing up for those who can't speak for themselves.
