one step at a time, america.
this is my "waiting for the polls to close but already voted absentee a month ago" face.
i'm happy. i'm so, so happy that america seems to have gotten its shit together. we have made a decision NOT to vote for the men that define rape as "legitimate" and "not legitimate". we have made a decision NOT to vote for the men who call rape babies "blessings from god." we have said, loud and clear, that we will not elect rape apologists.
not in this country.
and we will elect a lesbian in wisconsin, we will elect a woman in many states, and we will vote to allow same-sex couples equal rights in maine, maryland, and washington. we will take that step forward. and we will keep taking steps forward.
