As I’m comforting my Muslim spouse as she sobs about what this means for her, I don’t have time for nausea. I just want her to be okay. I want to live in a place where an interfaith lesbian couple with disabilities aren’t seen as the enemy. I’m tired of our lives hanging in the balance every goddamn election because some people (the majority, sometimes) are ignorant and easily taken by alienating rhetoric. I’m tired of waiting for voters to decide that we’re people and not the enemy.

I’m so fucking tired.
