Welllllll, that happened.
Ontario has it’s very own Cheeto! Guess we must have been jealous of all the drama down south. Always a bridesmaid, amirite? In these trying and cheesy times, I’ve come up with a few quick P R O T I P S to help you deal with, well, whatever the fuck is about to happen.
1) Don’t Panic!
Seriously don’t. Just stop. STOP. It’s very important to remain as calm and level-headed as possible, that way we can come up with a plan to save us all from certain socio-political doom :) It seems like everyone rushed online to make some sort of “If u voted PC ur TRA$H” post, but I think it may be more effective to observe before we act.
2) Smoke a Weed!
Hooray! It’s less than 30 days until it’s officially “legal” to smoke that sweet devils lettuce, so might as well get an early start and R E L A X while you can! We have much work to do.
3) Get LOUD
Yes I realize this may contradict my first point but gosh dangit to HECK we need to be louder than ever! I’m talking queer voices, femme voices, BIPOC voices, preferably-some-sort-of-intersection-of-all-3 voices. Lil Dougie want to take away abortion rights? Abort his entire platform with FACTS AND EDUCATION.
4) Follow @ladykunterpunt on Instagram
Ok this one’s a shameless plug. W/E you would do it too
5) Don’t block your PC friends
I know, I knowwwww. This is easier said than done. But here’s the thing: discussion is the key to education. And even tho discussion is easier for some than others, it is an integral part of the battle for Human Rights and we must keep trying! Always be trying. No matter how awful and infuriating it can be to deal with, we owe it to the people around us to continuously push for a better world. If you’re version of “political rebellion” isn’t making you uncomfortable, you’re not doing it right.
Take it from a queer honey, things don’t happen overnight. We’ve been fighting for decades just to fucking exist. But it’s dedication and consistency that make the difference.
