There is a huge feeling of loss of control right now—this can feel terrifying to those of you wonder if you and your rights will specifically be targeted in the coming days, as well as those of your loved ones. This is completely understandable, as we face uncertainty as to just how far this could go. If you find yourself in a place of hopelessness and despair, bring yourself back to the present moment. There are leaders, groups and organizations who are on top of this, even as we speak. They will let us know what we must do to get through this—we will not have to go about this alone!
My attitude towards politics of any kind is C'est la vie. In the USA, I have a lot of faith in the checks and balances of our constitution, but I keep as far away from politics as I can.....with the exception of transgender rights. Accordingly, and as one of the T-Central Administrators, I personally have stayed away from featuring politically oriented posts, especially those that do not relate to transgender rights. in recent days, however, there have been many blog posts from depressed and terrified T-Bloggers from within the USA and around the world relating to the results of the elections in the US. I've tried to find one to feature, and settled on What Now?: The USA Election of 2016, from Dara.
