I voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 Illinois Primary.
I voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Illinois Primary.
I didn’t believe I was a feminist. I called myself a humanist.
I don’t love Hillary, but I intend to vote for her. I intend to share my beliefs. I intend to use my digital platform to support her. I intend to dedicate whatever I can to helping our country elect her as president, not because she’s a woman, but because the other outcome is too scary to possibly imagine.
I will still share my life. You will still see pictures, videos, and mishaps as Brian and I walk down the aisle and continue our life together. You’ll still hear about me walking into poles, tripping over invisible wires, and stealing my best friend’s car. But if you follow me anywhere, you’re going to see a proud as fuck Hillary supporter. BECAUSE THE OTHER OUTCOME IS TOO SCARY TO POSSIBLY IMAGINE.

I understand that many of you are planning on voting for a third party candidate, which is your right as an American. But in this two-party system we’ve got going on (one that won’t be changing in the next 3 months), you’re wasting your vote. And if The Donald is elected? It will be partially your fault. You want to change the two party system? Great. CHANGE IT. Petition the men and women of congress. Petition your representatives. But don’t think for a second that Donald Trump isn’t using this two party system to his advantage.
If you can honestly say that you support the racist, sexist, egotistical, narcissistic bigot because you believe in his version of America, there’s the door, if you will. But if you’re more afraid of Hillary than of Trump, why don’t you do a little more research? Why don’t you listen to the horrifying words that come out of that orange-faced mouth every fucking day? He’s not a conservative, and he’s not a Republican.
I support Hillary. I’m with her. And I’m ready to use my voice and fight for her election. Because I have faith. And hope. And I believe in her, just like I believe in you. Be better.
