⚠️⚠️Warning: Long post but well worth the read.⚠️⚠️ While bent over during an exercise (Good Mornings) an older man made it a point to walk the long way behind me, stop and stare, and verbalize his satisfaction. When confronted by another man regarding his behavior, the staring man responded, “This is a free country, I’ll do what I want.” It’s frightening to think that the new "Leader of the Free World" shares the same misogynistic, disgusting "locker room banter" and behavior as our neighborhood gym creep. I’m just thankful that he didn’t “grab me by the pussy.” Trump and his administration, by normalizing the bigoted subordination of women and minorities via their personal actions and public policies, create an unsafe and toxic society for anyone who isn’t a heterosexual white male. We have developed into a nation that prides itself on the beliefs that everyone should be allowed to enjoy the same liberties regardless of their gender, race, origin, religion, ability, and sexual orientation.
I am unapologetically a Latina woman, and I promise to stand in solidarity with other women, minorities, the LGBTQ community, those with physical and developmental disabilities, immigrants, refugees, people of all religions, and otherwise oppressed individuals. I challenge you; the next time you witness this new administration's hate impose itself on the American people, step in and stand with those it affects. Keep America free of hate and discrimination not only for us, but for posterity.
I will leave this quote with you to think about:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
