It's none of your damn business where my kid's Dad takes a piss
It’s gotten personal, North Carolina. Now you’re messing with my kid’s dad. I asked my 7 year old to give me five minutes to talk about what North Carolina just did to the trans community. And now I’m asking you to give me five minutes to listen to what he had to say about it.

So what does a liberal girl wear to a fascist rally, anyway?
When I first heard that Trump was holding a rally in Chicago this Friday, naturally I was all like, “Hey, dude, while you’re in town, how about you get your feckin’ name off of our skyline because we’ve hated it being there since way before this election – Chop, chop.

Sorry, but I can't be friends with you if you support Donald Trump
If you support Donald Trump and the things he stands for, then we can’t be friends. I’m not saying I don’t like you. I’m not even saying I don’t want to be friends with you.
