The Elephant in the Room

Male white privilege, (especially older) assumes rights not earned, rewarded, or inalienable.

Even a handshake, (seemingly innocuous to most) turns insidious when extended in lasciviousness where it is not warranted, or wanted, but insisted upon.

It’s enough to make one vomit!

Cheers Team Tiny Peppers it’s Nano Poblano Day 9.  I have been on such a roll this year so far with Nano Poblano, but today I am so depressed I find myself without words. I couldn’t even write a senryu.  I’m worried for our country.  I’m worried for myself. I’m worried for my marriage, my rights (so hard fought for). I keep trying to find the silver lining, the sparkling glimmer of hope, but all is dark. I will try again tomorrow to create.  If I am unable I may have to bow out.  I am hurt to the core that our country could elect a Racist, misogynistic,  bigoted, sexist, hateful narcissist who brags about assaulting women; who incites violence and threatens to use his new power in oval to silence and seek retribution against his enemies.  So un-presidential. I keep seeing posts about uniting and moving forward. I cannot possibly respect or unite with anyone who would support a candidate such as Trump and everything he represents. I seriously messaged my manager this morning and told her I couldn’t come to work because I had been stricken with Trumpitis, that I had uncontrollable diarrhea and vomiting that could last 4-8 years.  I went in, but it was so hard to work today.  I don’t want to go tomorrow either, what’s the point if everything I am working for is going in the crapper?  Crestfallen 😦

How to get Elected?!

Cheer Team Tiny Peppers, it’s Day 4 of Nano Poblano. This senryu is ripped straight from this awful election. I don’t really think it’s that easy to rig the vote, but that has never and probably will never stop the unscrupulous from trying. 😦
