It is important to stand up to tyranny. Those who choose the tyrant’s path are nothing more than cowards and bullies. No more. It is a more than appropriate message for all to heed. Times are changing. And change is not always a good thing. Only when change leads to better circumstances does it deserve to be brought forward to thrive.

They were never meant to have power. Their weakness will take over their minds and destruction will be their own. – j.kiley 2017

But let me return to the personal…

We see right through you. We have all known you at some point. Your ways are not unfamiliar to us. We see through you because we’ve been dealing with you our whole lives.
We heard you call women pigs. And disgusting. And stupid. And bimbos.
We watched as you called a former Ms. Universe “Ms. Piggy” and then spent four days continuing to insult her.
We see your weakness. Your lust for attention at any cost, your need to denigrate women. We see all of it. And we’re mad.
