Orlando.

I’m heartbroken, angry, and a little numb.

To the LGBTQA community:  I love you.  I am here for you.  I’ll admit, I don’t really know exactly what to do here, but I’ve got your back.

To anyone saying, “Well, why isn’t the Muslim community—”  Go sit down and rethink your life choices.  I’m pretty sure they’re too busy being horrified with the rest of us to trot out the #NotAllMuslims banners.  Let’s not forget that any jackass can say, “I’m with Daesh.”

No civilian needs an AR-15 type gun.  But we’re never gonna do shit about that.  (I think that’s where the numbness is.)

I’m sure He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named and his ilk are already having a field day with this.  And as that rhetoric fills the airwaves, we’ll still wonder how people are driven to violence.  And I don’t know how to make my voice loud enough to convince the world, THEY ARE WRONG.  And that is very frustrating.

Despite everything, I believe that acceptance and understanding will get us all farther together than anything else.

ETA to fix LGBTA to LGBTQA.  My most sincere apologies – it was not an intentional exclusion, just a fuckup on my part.
