family and politics 

me: *explaining to my mom that i don't consider myself a democrat, but i personally feel the need to vote left because democrats are the side that generally will at least somewhat protect my rights as a queer bitch, and that at the end of the day i think politics is pretty dumb because both sides are the same but controlled by different buyers* so yeah anyways

her: hmm yea so are you like a communist or what

family and politics 

what part of "hates politics and distrusts authority" did she not understand. im just transgender, and don't think that folks are gonna stand up for me in washington. but democrats usually at least pretend to care about us, and that makes me feel a tad bit better than republicans who would prefer if we all burned.

like i get the whole money thing, mom, but it doesn't feel good to vote for someone who hates my identity outright.
