prepare for the coming storm

Those who see her as a traitor will see in this only proof of how disturbed she is. Some who laud her will find further cause. Either way, she is now a symbol, and with such power there is real danger, to her and us. I pray that those who project on to her every anxiety regarding their loss of power in this country do not turn around and act out towards other trans woman. I know that what’s to come in the media is going to be terrible, but I am even more scared that it may result in actual harassment of and violence towards a population already under siege.

Be safe my sisters.

And good luck to Chelsea and any trans person struggling to find their way.

    I can’t help but worry this will result in even more of a media circus. Thank goodness I don’t have cable.
