Let me say it right here — if you voted for Trump, I do think you are a racist. I do think you’re homophobic. I do think you’re a misogynist. Racism, and homophobia, and misogyny are all a spectrum, and you’re on it. You might not be a ‘cheering while a black man gets lynched’ racist, but boy, did you just sell them the rope and look the other way.

From Friendly Atheist:

One of the biggest takeaways from the election for me was that there were so many more people than I expected who might normally promote respect, civility, religious freedom, equality, and civil rights… but when push came to shove, they weren’t turned off enough by a candidate who doesn’t give a damn about any of those things. They had a choice and they went with the racist, sexist, ignorant bigot.
