An Absinthe-Loving, Polyamorous, Kinky, Sex-Positive Couple talk about all things Sex, Kink, and LGBTQ.

T-Minus 3 Weeks to History Being Made

Today is Tuesday, the 18th day of October in the year 2016.  In three weeks time, the general election for the next President of the United States of America will culminate in us learning which version of historical precedence will be set.

Possibility 1: Hillary Clinton, the candidate for the Democratic Party, will become the first woman and the first spouse of a previous President to be elected President of the United States.

Possibility 2: Donal Trump, the candidate for the Republican Party, will become the first multiple divorcee, multiple civil trial defendant, multiple fraud charge defendant, first candidate allegedly indebted to the Russian government, and first person to have children with multiple previous wives, to be elected President of the United States.

If you are reading this entry, I can assume you love either politics or sex (or both).

If you love politics, please do not vote for Trump.  He is destroying every standard and ethical approach to politics this country has ever seen.

If you love sex, please do not vote for Trump.  He routinely disparages (and admits to assaulting) women, he regularly insults everybody who is not straight, and he is actively seeking to undo all of the progressive gains this country has made over the last 8 years in regards to civil and equal rights for every non-hetero-normative individual in this country.

Please, if you are a U.S. Citizen, and especially so if you live in one of the states regularly contested, such as Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Iowa, cast your vote for Clinton.  Your LGBTQ+ friends and families, and their families, have their very lives at stake in this election.  Stand with us.  Stand for progress.  Stand for hope.  Stand for being stronger together.

 

Stay SINful, friends.

  1. I agree with you on the not voting for Trump part, but if I may so bold as to add – if you can’t vote for Hillary, please consider voting for Gary Johnson. Yes, I’ve seen the John Oliver piece on third party candidates. I’m just saying, for those that can’t vote for Hillary for their own reasons, you don’t have to vote for Trump. For the LGBTQ community, Johnson will do you fine.

    • From the perspectives of health care access, educational access, housing access, better wages, and environmental protection, Johnson is every bit as bad, if not worse, than Trump. Stein would be a better option.

  2. Gazing from afar . . . with wonderment and amazement . . . I want to say my thoughts are with all of you on that side of the water.

    But then I think of the “ripples” for all of us . . . !!!
