...which, come to find out, is a thing in the furry fandom. Jeez, really? You'll fap to two dudes going at it and then vote for a guy who selected the 3rd most conservative politician in the nation as his running mate? The guy who commissioned the bill that allows businesses to discriminate against people based on their religious beliefs? Christ god in heaven.
Sorry. I swear I'm going to try to keep this civil. It is a strain on every fiber of my being. But I am going... to keep... this civil.
So, as many of you have seen, this election has been pretty toxic as of late. The nation is more divided than it has ever been in recent memory, there are protests and (small) riots in the street, and in general the over-all vibe is pretty lousy.
I've just been made aware of several Trump supporters whose work I've chosen to follow in the past. Pierce, KevinSnowpaw, some douche marmoset who earned himself a block for being REALLY petty after Trump won, and some ferret with a fascination for BDSM gear and ball gags. So clearly, there's Trump support here on Inkbunny, baffling as that may seem to me.
So... for all the Trump supporters out there who may be reading this... for all of you almost uniformly white, blue-collar beltways who just had to elect a caricature of a 1920's oil tycoon into the highest office in the nation... I have to ask. Why?
What do you think you gained by voting that man into office earlier this week? After everything he's said. After every miserable thing he's done over the 70 odorous years of his entitled upper class life. Please tell me. Call it the squishy neo-lib in me, but I believe that, if I learn what you're feeling, I'll have a better insight as to why you voted the way you did.
Do you feel safer?
Do you think he's going to return America to a seat of preeminence not seen since the 1950's?
Do you feel your jobs are more secure?
Did you vote for him just because Hillary was a lousy candidate? (she was - I can concede that)
If you would, please name the one overarching reason... as plainly as you can... why, after a year and a half of reasoning, that you felt Trump would be a good idea.
Please try to keep things as civil as possible. I'm just trying to understand.
