"No, it is not okay, and it- at best- is not going to be okay for many marginalized peoples like those he built and spent his campaign on further attacking and marginalizing- women, LGBTQ people, people of color, not the least of which Hispanics, the disabled, immigrants- the list goes on. We cannot and should not condone the hatred and bigotry that has been exposed over this campaign cycle, and we should not normalize it. This is not normal, this is not what America is. It is ok to be scared and saddened by what has happened, but we should never let that fear define us. Let us mourn what we have lost, but waste no time in getting back up-- to organize more, to organize stronger and never let this do all we can to stand against hate, and prove that love truly will end the end trump hate. I am not going anywhere, and hope you won't, either."
