It’s not just Trump that gained power tonight.

It’s the man on the bus touching me, thinking he had a right to my body.

It’s the man who called me a fat cow for telling him to watch where he was going because he almost ran me over.

It’s the saleswoman yelling “WHY DONT YOU SPEAK MY LANGUAGE” to a Muslim man.

It’s my mom telling my sister being gay is a phase.

It’s my classmates saying women wearing revealing clothes are “asking for it”.

When you give one bigot power, you give all of them power.

THIS is what terrifies me the most. Not Trump himself but the people supporting him, justifying their disgusting behavior by saying “If the President can do it so can I”.
