As a queer man, I feel this in my bones.

I feel more marginalized and attacked than I ever have in my life. And I was born in the 60s!

I feel as if Trump’s indecent legions have targeted me. As if they’re rising up shouting that people like me need to go away, that they don’t want us in their Nation.

I know other marginalized people feel the same way, feel as if Trump has summoned forth a mob of intolerant indecency.

This is the way of all demagogues. Seize and hold power by creating enemies, disdaining the other.

The question is simple. Will the American people continue to fall for this indecency?

We gonna find out soon!
