Phew. This was not an easy video to film, and there are so many points I wanted to make but couldn’t figure out how to put to words, or explain in a way that I feel is adequate. Luckily there are a lot of links out there that do a much better job than I could. Here is the BEST one, that I agree with 120%:
“I’m a feminist. I study rape culture. And I don’t want Al Franken to resign.”
And here are some others that are good:
“Don’t celebrate Franken’s disgrace. And don’t let Trump and Moore off the hook.”
The Uneven Playing Field
Thanks to my dad for filming with me, even if he didn’t talk much. He didn’t want to take his shirt off because he didn’t want to encourage the insane “letcherous incestuous father” comments the garbage on Youtube always makes, even though I told him we can’t live our lives out of fear over how hateful trolls might react to it. You all should leave nice comments for him to read so hopefully he’ll feel a little braver next time!
Now if you’ll excuse me I’m gonna go scream into a pillow for a while and try not to continue existing in existential dread over how shitty things are getting so quickly, and how nothing we do seems to affect it in the slightest.
