I know it's still very far from decided, but anyone else nervous for the kind of division and hate we'd see in the USA in a Buttigieg-Trump race? It makes me even more pessimistic for the future. 🙁

Not a good way to live my friend. Focus your attention on what’s in your control and helping others in your circle, you’ll be far less stressed and much happier.

Wow, that's depressing AF...
It will never cease to amaze me how insecure straight (mostly men) people are re: their sexual orientation.

I’m also leaning on that not being a strong possibility.

I grew up in a beach town with those gift stores, every day I’d see those gift shirts ala “Silly f*ggot, dicks are for chicks!”. Optimistically, I think we’re not headed to those days again, but I do expect crude things if Buttigieg is nominee.

Right next to the "I'm not gay but $20 is $20" tanks...

I don't expect it to be worse than what we've already seen (at least for anyone over 30), but it won't be good. I already don't want to be LGBT in counties that voted for Trump, but I would expect hate crimes to increase. Hate crimes are already up under Trump as it is.

Was it the trump administration that tried to pull taking away protection to fire us on the basis of us being LGBTQ?

They failed this time but with another 4 years some judges might die or retire and they can try again with a new judge.

Hi all! What health benefits does your company offer that you really like/appreciate/want but don’t have? I’m curious what other companies offer to their lgbtq+ employees; My company says we are the best, but it feels like their standard of “the best” hasn’t changed since 2000…. I’d like to encourage them to update some of their policies and know it will be helpful to bring them some comparative examples. Thanks! (Eg, trans benefits? access to a concierge service? Surrogacy support etc)
