I had thought about starting this the day of the inauguration, and then I thought: fuck it, never hurts to get a head start. So with 70 days left until the new administration comes in, the countdown begins.
Trump loves war. If you live in a swing state, you know this statement and probably saw it a few times a day for the past month. Interestingly, some of the biggest wars he is threatening to wage are against people inside this country. People he claims to love. People like women. Which is why some of his plans – like crushing organizations that have done so much to help women, especially those that have been victims of sexual assaults or don’t have the support to go elsewhere – are a little confusing.
I don’t have a cabinet or an oval office (although that would be pretty cool), but I am lucky enough to have a good job and the ability to find a little extra money each month to fight against legislation that may be coming down the pike seventy days from now.
So today, I made a monthly commitment to Planned Parenthood – $20. A drop in the bucket, but drops add up. If you want to help fight the war against women, learn more (and if you can, donate!) here. In the meantime, stay sane – and hug the ones you love.
