DONE: Ironically, I'm blaming women and non-cis-whites for not voting in large enough numbers to defeat Trump.
There are a lot of cis white guys in the US (and ~%40 of them voted Hillary) but they are the minority when you count women and non-white Americans. Hispanics and Asians especially had a weak turnout.
Since you now have more personal time not fucking you may want to think back on your own get-out-the-vote efforts and ask if you did everything you could?
I mean what do you think is an easier task; convincing a Trump-supporter to switch their vote or convincing a Hillary supporter to get off her ass and head to the polling place?
I agree with Dan, feel how you're going to feel about it, but realize feelings can be based on stupid assumptions and biases.
Do we really want to go through the next four years pointing fingers at each other or should we start figuring out how to win in 2020?

Jesus this is getting rediculous.
"Other than that my parents are amazing and generous people and all my friends really love them—they don't fit the mold of Trumpers at all."
A little less than half the country voted for Trump and they did so for a variety of reasons. We're only doing harm to ourselves to belive most of them are like the blowhards who show up wearing a MAGA hat and yelling "build the wall".
Fuck, these people are eighty. I'm sure their perspective on the world is a bit less immediate as they've lived through many periods of doom and gloom: WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Kennedy & MLK assassinations...
Hey guys, my "amazing and generous" parents are offering up their home for Thanksgiving so let's pay them back by sniggering behind their backs about what chicken-shit "pitiable wrecks" they are...LOL, we're so morally superior, amiright?
Usually I agree with you Dan but today you can go stuff yourself for Thanksgiving.
It suuucks that Trump won so why let him win again and again by lowering ourselves?
If your friends don't know how to have polite conversation in a stranger's home then they aren't really friends worth having, are they?
"And since your parents will probably be too dead four years from now..."
Jesus Christ, Dan. Jesus Fucking Christ.

I'm in a relationship where nothing is working anymore, we're treating each other like crap, and both of us want out. I've already slept with other people and he probably has as well.
I feel trapped, what should I do? Councilling or make it an open relationship? Give it a few more years?
-- A lot of people apparently.

Meh, I must be a garbage person because I think the whole Weiner thing is pretty funny.
Sure, I'll buy that he's a victim as well but I'll let him decide to go after the media. Who knows maybe like Hulk Hogan he'll win big and shut down another trash site?

How does one snoop through texts these days anyway? Are passwords unfashionable with young people or something?

Hey at least now that you've established you're not a CIS dude the number of comments suggesting you're a creepy, immature, predator will go down!
You're girlfriend may not be a complete POS but she's kind of a selfish and lazy l'il shit and you know it (that guitar story didn't come from a happy place).
She's not a child at 23 and maybe a dose of reality will snap her out of acting like one. Tell her Summer is over and she needs to get out. If you want to be magnanimous give her two weeks but I'd suggest hiding any valuables during that period.
There really isn't a "clean" way to fix this if she insists on blaming you for her living arrangement predicament. She must have other friends she can crash with and there are always other suckers out there waiting to be used.
