Gay Regional Message Board
Yesterday was something of a rollercoaster for me, emotionally. I started the day alternatively seething and dejected about this entire sad political affair, but as the day went on my spirits lifted.
I was amazed to see the Women's March and how there were apparently 373 or so official marched across the entire world. The American press is notoriously self-absorbed, but on BBC there was footage of different marches happening across the world, in places as unsuspecting as Copenhagen, Nairobi, and even in Antarctica. There were about 500,000 in Washington, D.C. and 400,000 in New York City alone, which is a huge showing. Also, only 10% of Trump's votes came from people aged 18-29, compared with 19-20% of Hillary's, so that is also encouraging.
This is the time, when everyone who isn't a straight, white male has been essentially disenfranchised to a greater or lesser extent, for people all over the world and especially inside the United States to stand up, rediscover their activism and collective interests, and to use this time spent in exile from the halls of government to energize people on the local and regional levels. We need to work together now to make sure that the ill-conceived presidency of Trump is not a return to power in the long term, but rather a "last stand" of so many social and cultural forces that had appeared to be going--more or less quietly--into that good night.
We have demographics on our side, but as we just learned, that's not an excuse to drop all other strategies and outreach programs. We need everyone: the young, black, trans woman from the Bronx and also the older, white, hetero male from West Virginia who both share a commitment to respect, virtue, compassion, etc. If this progressive vision is to be worth anything, we have to move beyond old categories of oppressor and oppressed, and invite everyone into a new, equal, and fundamentally-positive project for the future. If we essentially "give up" on white people, small-town people, or uneducated people, then we're automatically only playing with about half the deck.
I would very much agree.
We had a similar demographic problem over here with the Brexit referendum. The vast majority of older people voted Leave, whereas the vast majority of younger people voted Remain. There is a direct correlation between the probable number of years you have left to live and the likelihood of you voting Leave - fewer years = more likely. As you might expect, this has led to a LOT of fury and resentment directed towards the elderly from the young, who (somewhat rightly) believe our future has been stolen by a bunch of racists who don't have to live to see the consequences of their actions, whereas we have to put up with them for the rest of our lives.
However, the fact that most young people seem to be liberal, progressive, cosmopolitan and well-educated is a step in the right direction. They will be the voters of the next few decades. They will, hopefully, raise their children to be just as liberal, progressive, cosmopolitan and well-educated, and so the cycle will continue.
I don't think that Brexit, Trump, Le Pen etc mean we're stepping backwards vis-à-vis civil rights. I think we've just sort of stalled, but we'll get the engine up and running again soon enough with a bit of luck. If you need a sign of hope, look at the number of people - mainly young people - who turned out to support Bernie Sanders in the primaries.
I've been drinking lads
Congrats. Favorite drink?
I went to the liquor store and asked for their cheapest beer, I then walked out with a case (carton) of very nice Dutch beer for $30.
I can't drink bear, hard cider is better. I also like tequila, but it's gotta be good tequila or else it sucks.
You got me at orgy.
Everything else is irrelevant.
Sharing is caring. -.-
