I honestly don’t give a hoot which flavor of average white man Trump picks tonight to undo Roe v. Wade. I know we’re all supposed to do due diligence and freak out the specific ways in which whomever he chooses is terrible, but I just don’t have it in me. The next Supreme Court Justice nominee will be awful, will get confirmed, will do terrible things to the country, and there is NOTHING we can do about it in the short term. I just don’t have it in me to go through the rituals.
I mean, it’s horrible, and it is going to suck, but I knew this in 2015, 2016, 2017, and all this year. As a straight white male of no religious affiliation, from a personal standpoint, this is not going to impact me that much in the short term. It’s going to be awful for a lot of women and minorities, WHICH IS FUCKING WHY I VOTED AND DID EVERYTHING I COULD TO AVOID THIS. But it apparently wasn’t enough, so there is just not much I can do right now and I’m just not putting myself through this tonight.
I do have two candidates for local elections (WV and PA State Senate) who I would really like you all to help me support, and I will talk about them tomorrow. Tonight, I’m gonna eat BLT’s and sit on the porch with the dogs. But I’m not going to be paying attention to fuckboy’s scotus trolling tonight. I refuse.
